“Chris Wainhouse was brilliant. Took him about 5 mins to judge the crowd and from then he had them rolling with laughter. Talking to him beforehand, a number of people said he was the most polite comedian they had met. I have seen Chris a few times and that is why we asked if he could do our function. Completely satisfied with his act at our Sports Dinner.”
