|To paraphrase Sally Field,
"You like us, you really like us!"
We love feedback! It's what keeps us going and growing as entertainers. Here are some kudos both from those who have hired us to do shows and media who have entrusted us with valuable time on their shows.
"Thank you. You guys were awesome and saved the show."
"The Duct Tape Guys are hysterical! We laughed so hard, phlegm came up!"
"You guys are GIANTS! Industrial Strength!?
The Central Washington Home Builders Association would highly recommend the Duct Tape Guys for your show. They were extremely professional and willing to help with all media. They also brought the traffic into the show like no other performer we have had that cost way more than their reasonable fee. The bang for the buck was definitely there for us.
You [Tim] and Jim really helped get our dealers off to a great start Sunday morning. The Duct Tape Guys drew the biggest group we've ever had for a breakfast meeting at the market [over 800]. We heard from many of our dealers how much they enjoyed being entertained at that time of the day. Thank you for getting up so early to be part of our program. Hopefully, we'll have an opportunity to work together again.
"You guys are the biggest crowd draw of our shows!" - Rob Lynch, President of Orchard Supply Hardware in reference to The Duct Tape Guys' appearances at their "How To Fairs" (the other regular performers are celebrities from PBS, HGTV, and various television and radio shows).
I'm sure you've been told this: Very funny, very good. And yeah, we'd be interested in having you back." - Bob Madden, KATY
"Duct Tape Tim, the Toolman Taylor, Carrot Top and Bob and Doug McKenzie together and you have The Duct Tape Guys" - Kevin Barnes, KBEM fm, Minneapolis, MN
"Possibly the thinnest premise for a show we ever had and it went on for hours! Great fun!"
"Wow! Thank YOU!! You are a great interview! We hope to talk with you again soon!"
"These guys are charming!"
"Thanks a ton for being on our show!!! We had a great time with you and would love to have you on again. Please put us on your distribution list so we can keep in touch about what you guys have going on! Thanks!" - Obadiah, RadioU
"Having you [the Duct Tape Guys] in our studio was our pleasure, believe me! In fact, I was just trying to remember who we've had on the show twice besides you guys -- you may be it!" - Kurt V. - Producer, the Kathy and Judy Show, WGN, Chicago
Thanks for taking time out for us this morning! You were fantastic! We had several calls afterwards. We look forward to being able to use you in the future. I am ALWAYS looking for good clean humor since we are a family-based country show. Thanks again Tim!
"Their deadpan humor was a hit with the listeners and the positive e-mail keeps piling up!"
"We though you were great! We'd love to have you back!" - 105.1fm The Groove, Detroit, MI
"There is an interesting cultural movement on duct tape in the US. People are using it for far more than just repairs. The Duct Tape Guys have a strong following. Any time the media (TV, radio, print..) is looking for a person to interview on the subject, The Duct Tape Guys are first on the interview list. "
"We've never had so many callers on ANY topic. The phone rang for three days!"
"The best guest I've ever had." - Steve Winzenberg, WHO Radio
Thank you so much, you both were a pleasure to work with. I will pass the word onto other [HBA] Associations. I think everyone that attended the shows left with a smile on their face.
"You were a big hit here in Idaho when you were on our show last. For weeks we got comments about "that Duct Tape Guy". Most were even favorable!"
"You guys are as funny as Penn and Teller! No wait... YOU’RE FUNNIER!"
"You’ve got to be our favorite guest ever!"
"Hey, Tim, it was great having you on today!!!!! I got about eight hours notice you would be on, and was assured you would be a great guest... and it was true! Many thanks, and I look forward to talking with you again. I got a lot of good feedback on your appearance today, and I laughed my ass off - sincerely!
Tim and Jim were real professionals. Working with our P.R. agency, they had a full slate of media interviews. Walking through the lobby before the show you could hear the crowd talking about their interviews. Great job! - Sherry Larsen, American Shows (Sacramento, CA)
We received $2 to $3 in media for every $1 we spent on the Duct Tape Guys. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND them.
We were delighted to have you here. I will put the word out to the National and our State [HBA] Association. You were just great to work with. Again, thank you!!! - Tommie Sprague, HBA of Lenawee County, Michigan
Having the Duct Tape Guys perform at our home show was a pleasure! Their spirit of cooperation and their willingness to be accessible made our show fun for our visitors and especially our staff. We plan to bring them back in the near future! Great guys! - Builder’s Association of Erie Pennsylvania
Thanks so much for all your hard work and humor. You guys made our home show a terriffic success. Everybody enjoyed your act and is very interested in having you back next year in a larger venue! - Jake Loyer, MIS Director
The Duct Tape Guys are easy to work with. We booked the act very late. With greater lead time we feel this could definitely be a draw for male attendees. We will hire them again.
The hardware industry can’t go wrong with these guys! They know hardware and they know how to have a good time!
[Our client] called to say how much he appreciated the effort from you guys and truly how pleased he was with the impact you made throughout the day. We LOVE you guys!
The Duct Tape Guys outdrew all of our other stage events by a substantial margin. They’re comin’ back!
"You and Jim are delightful to work with! I've been singing your praises here at our office all morning! Not at all surprised you heard directly from WANE-TV! - they loved you!!! (As did WAIJ, WLDE, and Around Fort Wayne...). We definitely will recommend you!" - Sally Bonneau, Vice President & Director of Public Relations, BPS Marketing, Inc., Indianapolis, IN

Speaking of Corporate Events...
To Whom It May Concern:
As one of the world’s leading materials suppliers with a well-known and respected brand name, we are often faced with telling our story in new, fresh, fun ways. This was the greatest challenge we faced in preparing for our largest US trade show: NPE 2006 International Plastics Expo in Chicago, Illinois.
Enter Tim Nyberg and Jim Berg more famously known as “The Duct Tape Guys.” Their website, books and calendars have been shared and passed around the engineering crowd both at our facility and at customer’s facilities, giving us a common-ground starting point from which we could draw humor and generate curiosity.
From that point on, we broke new ground with them. Tim was quick to be briefed on our materials and materials technology so that we could collaboratively craft a script that framed and punctuated each of our messages in gentle, wry humor that audiences will remember and recall with a smile. Each show offered a nuance and sparkle that kept it fresh.
Tim’s low stress approach is very refreshing in light of traditional corporate deadlines and commitments. Tim and Jim’s on-stage manner offers a lighthearted, energetic banter to what can often be a straightforward, dull presentation …even for five shows a day five days a week.
How do we know it worked? While the data is not in yet, we have the reactions of our audience ranging from materials and design engineers to machinery operators and midsize manufacturing company CEOs laughing out loud during the show.
We wholeheartedly embrace “The Duct Tape Guys” and recommend them for entertaining methods of getting out a powerful message.
