Testimonials

PARKWAY TELECOM

Thanks you very much for your help and support during our Charity Ball in aid of Nightingale House Hospice.  I have to say your performance was incredible.  Not only did you have everyone in tears of laughter, but you also raised £4000 hosting our charity auction.  Never before have I seen a comedian receive a standing ovation and never before has a standing ovation been so well deserved.  Quite simply, 'You are a Comedy Genius'.

FEDERATION OF PETROLEUM SUPPLIERS LTD

Can I say a huge ‘THANK YOU' for the excellent performance you gave at the FPS Annual Dinner. We have received nothing but praise for what was a wonderful evening. You will be such a hard act to follow next year that the easiest thing for me to do is engage your services again for next years Annual Dinner!

GRANT THORNTON

John successfully tailored his material to suit the audience and incorporated many topical and relevant issues, interacting well and ad-libbing where appropriate. John kept his material clean, used no bad language and feedback has been exceptionally positive. We very much look forward to welcoming John back to our next event.

PGA - (Professional Golfers Association)

On behalf of everybody here in the PGA Scottish Region, can I thank you most sincerely for your wonderful speech at our dinner on Thursday last. It really was absolutely outstanding. Your performance made the evening a complete success.

HILTON HOTELS

You managed not only to provide one of the best stand-up routines I have ever heard, but your comedy without sexist, racist or religious overtones kept us all entertained for well over an hour. It is always a refreshing surprise and delight to find ad after-dinner speaker who can rely on wit rather than base humour. Your performance was very conducive to our evening and very topical together with being extremely funny.

WORLDCHOICE

A sincere thank you to you for your magnificent entertainment you provided at the Glenfield Travel golf day. A long time has passed since I have seen an audience laugh so much and give a standing ovation, one you so richly deserved. Your topical material and skilful delivery were outstanding, and how refreshing it was to be entertained for over an hour by a comedian whose material was both funny and clean.

PLASA - (Professional Lighting And Sound Association)

Just a short note to thank you very much for your presence and after-dinner speech at our AGM dinner recently. Without exception, everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed your performance and have been phoning our office to let us know. Whilst it appeared to be a tough audience, you coped magnificently.

LTWA - (Lawn Tennis Writers' Association)

Thank you so much for entertaining us at the Lawn Tennis Association and Lawn Tennis Writers' Association annual awards dinner. You did an absolutely fantastic job which is a real achievement amongst a crowd of such diverse ages. The compliments haven't stopped rolling in over the past couple of weeks. You will be a very tough act to follow next year and if we could book you year on year we would.

CONSERVATIVE PARTY

On behalf of the Conservative Party, I would like to thank you for your superb performance at the Gala Dinner at the Conference in Blackpool recently. You made a tremendous impact on the evening. I am still getting so much positive feedback from those who were present and I very much hope that we will be able to work together again in the future.

EPIC - (Egg & Poultry Industry Conference)

On behalf of the organising committee, I am writing to thank you for your excellent after dinner speech at this year's Conference. Your major contribution played a significant part in what was considered by many to be a most successful Conference. Many people have said that you are the best after dinner speaker that they have heard at our Conference. Apart from being highly amusing and professional, two other very important points were mentioned. Firstly, you did not pick on any one individual too much and secondly, your sexual innuendoes went just far enough but not too far. The balance of these two aspects was just right - well done!

BARNSLEY HOSPICE

A huge thank you for all your help at our recent Sporting Dinner. You did a brilliant job as our MC and it was due to your hard work that our auctions were so successful. We have been inundated with lots of favourable comments about your performance, but that came as no surprise to us! I am delighted to let you know that, as a result, almost £5,500 was generated for the Hospice.

BROMBOROUGH GOLF CLUB

On behalf of all the ladies at Bromborough Golf Club, may I express our thanks to you for a fantastic evening of entertainment, when you came to our Ladies Centenary Dinner in June this year. Your rapport with all the ladies was fantastic and everybody enjoyed the evening from the oldest lady of 86 years down to the young ones at 30 something. You were only expected to do 45 minutes but an hour and 30 minutes later you finished much to the regret of all the ladies. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any group who wanted an evening of fun, for this was certainly what you gave us.

FORENSIC PSYCHIATRIC NURSES ASSOCIATION

This years conference was an excellent event, made all the better by your after-dinner performance. Numerous delegates commented on your performance during the course of the evening, and during the second day of the conference, elating how much they had not enjoyed themselves so much in a long time. It must be difficult to entertain such a large, mixed audience, whilst striking the balance between being appropriate but challenging at the same time. You are clearly able to achieve this balance, whilst simultaneously reducing everyone around you to fits of laughter.

THE PRINCE OF WALES HOSPICE

On behalf of The Prince of Wales Hospice, I would like to thank you for all your help and support last night, you were absolutely brilliant. The phones have been ringing all morning; we have had clients calling to say just how much they enjoyed the evening and what a great comedian you are. We raised £4105.00 in the evening with the raffle and auction and it is all a big thanks to you John, I do hope you will come along and entertain us again in the very near future.

LORD AND LADY HUNT OF WIRRAL

"Dear John many many congratulations, we enjoyed every minute of your brilliant hour long comedy. You have a wonderful talent for entertaining and we cannot understand how you manage to maintain a flow of topical, original, clean and very funny jokes without a pause"

Recently in the Sunday Telegraph racing expert Jenny Pitman, described an event where John was in her team for a special quiz

"With John on our team, it turned out to be one of the longest and funniest quiz nights ever, culminating in John doing an unrehearsed 25 minute spot which brought the house down"
