Client Feedback

Pete was professional, easy to work with and extremely entertaining. It’s a tricky crowd as they are very busy talking amongst themselves!! He got their attention instantly and held it throughout. He also managed to judge the audience well. The feedback has been very positive.” – The Royal Television Society

“Pete is one of the most professional entertainers we have ever had at an event. His cheeky, fast paced (but not offensive) humour, had the audience roaring with laughter. On top of that, he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to book him again.” – Mearns & Gill

“Pete followed our brief exactly. He was punctual, professional, and read our audience brilliantly. Pete went down a storm with the audience. He was very funny and just the right balance of cheek for a corporate crowd. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other corporate groups.” – SF Events Ltd

“We hired Pete for 2 separate awards evenings in different sectors and he went down brilliantly on both occasions. Pete is lively, engaging, professional, and of course funny. He was very easy to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for a function where you are looking for comedy with a twist.” –Informa

“Please may you pass on my HUGE thanks to Pete, he is such a lovely person to work with and did an amazing job on stage at the WellChild Awards last night. We really appreciated him attending and performing, it makes such a difference to the evening and makes it one that all our fantastic and inspiring winners will never forget.” – WellChild

To say we were spellbound by Pete’s tricks is an understatement. He left a stunned impression of everyone’s face as they desperately tried, in vain, to comprehend what they’d just witnessed.”
- Tigi

Pete truly brightened the party. It’s always hard when you have very diverse guests, but magic seems to be the ultimate ice breaker. He was an absolute pleasure, we hope that we’ll work with him again in the near future!” – Emap
