Justin’s quick wit and entertaining banter amused over 50,000 supporters at the Legends match between Manchester United and FC Bayern Munich at Old Trafford in June 2015. His interaction with the crowd and humour added to what many will describe as a great day out.

Justin was an excellent host at our annual dinner and awards presentation. His material was really appropriate for our audience both in terms of content, as he managed to deliver a humorous slant on garden centres, and in knowing how far to go.... I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Iain Wylie, Chief Executive, The Garden Centre Association
Justin Moorhouse has been a hero of mine since the days of Phoenix Nights and I am so glad we got him to headline this event. Assured and confident performance that was incredibly hilarious. One of the best reactions to an event act I’ve experienced.
When we look at re-doing this next year I think we’ll definitely have Justin on again!
Antony Anderson, Marketing Manager, Hippo Motor Group
Justin was fantastic. He did a brilliant job. Funny, friendly, very easy to work with...we would not hesitate in booking him again or recommending him to others. We have produced this event for 5 years now and we had many comments on the night saying he was the best host to date. He did an excellent job at not only keeping the audience entertained and laughing all night, but also controlling the room so that it all ran perfectly and exactly to time...which, considering how much we had to get through, was a real skill! He had the perfect balance between keeping it fun and taking the awards seriously, absolutely ideal for this audience.
