From the moment you started your MC role and welcomed the members of this VIP group, it was obvious that everyone was in for a very enjoyable evening. Your comedy performance was great. I particularly loved the way you interacted with everyone in the room. Thank you so much for your great contribution to an enjoyable and memorable evening.

His comedy act was absolutely brilliant. His life observations and stories had everyone in fits of laughter. He read the group very well and ensured that the content was appropriate and humorous. He certainly put the icing on an enjoyable day.

I can't really say much about Mark as I spent most of the time on the floor with tears in my eyes. I haven't laughed so much in a long time, and if the feedback is anything to go by neither have our attendees.
