Corporate Testimonials:

Just wanted to say thanks for providing such a great comedian for our event last week. Mark was fabulous – hilarious and such a nice guy! He went down really well with all the staff and I’ve had loads of great comments about him. It was lovely that he’d researched our company – the jokes around our marketing/website write-ups were genius and really got us in a fun, festive mood!

Mark was absolutely fantastic once again at the Digital Awards! He got the tone of the event exactly right and we’ve had really positive feedback from the audience, even more impressive he managed to get through all 30 odd awards within the allocated time so we didn’t run over which was great. There is even talk of booking him for a third year in a row!

AMAZING!!! The best after dinner speaker we have ever booked in my view – I know it’s subjective but he was brilliant! - Capita Children's Education Services Awards Dinner I just had a nice chat on the phone with my client from the event at the Celtic Manor which Mark hosted the Awards Ceremony last week, and they were delighted with him. Everyone found him really funny, and they were so pleased he joined them at the top table for dinner also!
