REVIEWS

“Doug and Dave are a true gift to the people of God. Mass Confusion was a delightful evening where people were uniquely inspired and learned about the source and summit of our Faith. Mass Confusion is awesome!”

–  Father Todd Philipsen, Pastor, St. Patrick’s Parish, Chadron, Nebraska

“The ministry uses a blend of comedy, crazy acting, heart-stirring music and powerful teaching to deliver an encompassing message for the average parishioner. It has a lighthearted way to speak profound truths that reach the mom or dad in the pew, grandma or grandpa, the young adult, the teenager and child – everyone receives from this program. I loved Mass Confusion because everyone walked away understanding the Mass more deeply, and having seeds planted to desire Jesus in the Mass more.”

– Father Andy Davy, M.I.C., Pastor, St. Mary Parish, Plano, Illinois

“It was a pleasure and honor to welcome back Doug and Dave for the 2021 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress! They have been part of Youth Day for many years and always know how to capture the attention of our participants, no matter the age! With our virtual reality this year, they adapted their ministry to meet our young people where they are at. They are a professional duo, who go above and beyond what is asked of them. The Doug and Dave Show would bring light and laughter to any community.”

Jenny Guzman, Coordinator of Youth Ministry Events, Arch-diocese of Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California

“Doug Brummel and Dave Wilson are a breath of fresh air within the realm of Catholic entertainers! We hosted “The Doug and Dave Show” for a high school day-long event… From the second that Doug and Dave started their skits, the audience was engaged and hanging on every word. I enjoyed witnessing the teens giggling out of their seats, shedding a tear or two at a certain heart-touching skit, and clapping their hands as they sang along with Doug and Dave. During all of that, the audience was learning Catholic teachings and why we do the things we do in Mass/at home. I would love to see Doug and Dave again in the future. They were an absolute joy!”

– Carlos E. Bernard Jr., Director of Youth Ministry, Diocese of Orlando, Orlando, Florida

“The Doug and Dave Show’s Mass Confusion is a must for all Catholic schools and religious education programs. It is an amazing mix of humor, song and teachings of the Catholic Church. The students were so engaged and could not stop talking about the program. You do not want to miss this inspiring program!”

– Sister Ann, O.P., Head of School, Pope St. John Paul II Academy, Aurora, Illinois

“Mass Confusion completely exceeded my expectations. I expected to be entertained to some degree, but didn’t expect to experience solid Catechesis, good liturgical principles and an evening that would draw in the entire congregation from (ages) 8 to 80. Doug and Dave think out of the box and present their material in a fresh and often humorous way. A fun evening! I would have them back in a heartbeat.”

– Joanne Sanders, Director of Worship and Christian Initiation, Resurrection Catholic Community, Wayne, Illinois

“The organic feel and arc of the show was perfect. Your harmony and blend created a lovely space for the Spirit to work. Loved the story line!”

– Dr. Timothy Mullner, President of Pathfinders, Renton, Washington

“This is just as professional as ‘Late Night Catechism.’ Very profound message about the Eucharist in a delightful setting.”

– Sister Mary Jane Vigil, OSB, Benet Hill Monastery, Colorado Springs, Colorado

“Attending Mass Confusion was a fantastic experience, blending humor, faith, prayer and song together, while touching hearts for God and the Church!”

– Ellen Mommaerts, Director of Discipleship Training & Family Ministry, St. Margaret Mary Parish, Neenah, Wisconsin

“It was impossible not to feel the synergy between Doug, the master storyteller, and Dave, the accomplished musician.  Dave had us up and moving and singing, while Doug, through his characters, kept us thinking. At one point, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.  It was compelling.  It was energizing.  It was faith-filled, and people continue to tell me about how positive they felt about the evening. “

Deacon Rick Miech, Pastoral Associate and Liturgist, St. Peter the Fisherman Parish, Eagle River, Wisconsin

“I laughed out loud and thought it was very funny, while at the same time helpful in engaging people to understand the Catholic Mass better and appreciate our faith more. Thank you for your show!”

– Father Gabriel, Associate Pastor, St. Mary Parish, Plano, Illinois
