Testimonial From a Famous Person
"My name is Christopher John O’Neill. I’m an award-winning actor and comedian most famously known for playing Elder Cunningham in the 1st National Tour & Broadway productions of “The Book of Mormons” as well as a finalist on the inaugural season of NBC’s "Bring the Funny." I’ve had the honor of performing alongside Motts on countless shows including a feature on an episode of TRU TVs Impractical Jokers.
I’ve known Motts for over 20 years and I am happy to attribute much of my success to starting my career alongside Motts. He took me under his wing and has been an instrumental mentor in my career."
