"We couldn’t recommend Chris highly enough – his comedy act at our school fundraiser was absolutely brilliant, he had the whole crowd in fits of laugher for the entire show and it set the scene for a fantastic night. Chris was great to deal with in the lead up to the night, nothing was too much trouble and his calm and relaxed approach was greatly appreciated. The feedback from all who attended has been incredible. Thank you so much Chris for making it such a successful night!"
"Chris was FANTASTIC and considering the sensitivity around the issue (Modern Day Slavery) to which our charity was raising awarness for, Chris did an exceptional job with having the guests laugh, and personally believe Chris helped set the positive mood and vibes for the remaining of the night."
"We had Chris perform at two product launches for us, and he was amazing. Had everyone laughing from beginning to the very end, and worked off the audience really well. His performances were definitely the highlight of both nights, and we would highly recommend him. He should be more famous!"
"Thanks for being a pro, Chris. You turned what could have been a tricky situation - no stage, no spotlight, people spread out - into a thoroughly winning situation, they laughed, and then they laughed some more."
"A fantastic performance and had everyone in stitches. We've received nothing but tremendous feedback from all those in attendance and people are still talking about the performance days later. A fantastic stage presence and controlled the room brilliantly, top-bloke, model professional and very very funny!"
"Chris was fantastic. He was relaxed and very funny and picked up on the vibes in the crowd very quickly. His comments directed at one or two people who walked in late or made a comment were priceless. We all wished he could have kept going longer! We'd recommend Chris to anyone."
"What a hit! This event was one of if not the best TGIF event since I joined. Everyone had nothing but good feedback and there were laughs all around. Chris was very easy to work with."

“The event went really well and Chris was fantastic! Everyone really enjoyed his act and are all still talking about him.”
“Thanks for the laughs. Chris was hilarious. Would definitely see him over and over again. ”
"Firstly Chris was punctual, which is always a good start. His actual show was outstanding, not one negative comment. Everyone I spoke to said the same thing, "How good was that bloke”. He had to deal with one peanut in the crowd which he handled pretty easily and honestly it added to his show. Thank you for providing a great comedian and what I could gauge, a top bloke."
“As tile showrooms go, they can be not so funny, but Chris turned the space alive, with an interactive, well balanced mix that made our event really unique and enjoyable. The guy is adaptable and can be trusted to deliver. Thanks Chris."
"Thank you so much for recommending Chris to me, he was outstanding! Not only was he very conscious about the briefs, he took time to speak to the client on the day before the show, he relaxed them from thinking he was the "typical" comedian, that they had on previous occasions. He was certainly not that comedian!! Chris was fabulous, quick and an absolute delight to work with - very easy going, and an all-round lovely bloke."
"Chris, your set was amazing, you had all our guests in stitches. Just spot on.”
"Chris was great! I have had nothing but positive feedback from his comedy spot and his efforts as MC for the night. He was very funny and managed to adapt to our environment well, picking up on little extras along the way to work into the night. I would highly recommend Chris and wouldn't hesitate to use him again. Job well done!"
"Chris was hilarious! I got plenty of feedback from staff after the event, everyone thought he was great! He got everyone laughing and all his jokes were relevant for our audience. He was great at pushing the boundaries without taking it too far. Definitely a highlight of the party. Thanks again it was definitely worth it.”
“Chris you were amazing. We all thought you were great and the restaurant owner wants to promote you. Thanks so much I really needed a good laugh.”
"Chris was great. Really lovely too. He got there early and got a lot of info from us, which he put into his set really well. We loved him and alot of people wouldn't stop talking about him over the next week."
"Chris showed his professionalism the moment he arrived. MC skills were second to none and his comedy routine was excellent. Chris was a class act."
