“Chris was very well received. Thoroughly recommend him to any function and any audience.”



“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. So thank you for providing a great comedian and what I could gauge, a top bloke. And also thanks for the professional service you and your company provided too.”

Mark, Thank you so much for recommending Chris to me, for our clients in Adelaide Nov 20th, 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.

Please pass on our thanks again, and we will be in touch again to book him and others on your books.

We had fun.

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 were really pleased with our choice. It was something we’d never done before and it was a success. We’d recommend Chris to anyone.

Kind regards,
