“As you know, Michael Palascaks’s Family Weekend performance was last night here at UW-Stout and he was fantastic! Michael was professional and a pleasure to work with. His content was spot on for Family Weekend and people of all ages were having a great time. The entire night he was kind to everyone that approached him, and I do not have the exact number yet but there was an audience of over 350 people.” – UW Stout
