Testimonials

"James MC'd our annual awards night in 2017 and we loved him so much we got him back this year. I loved that he made the effort to find out info about people, remembered most people from the year before and therefore made it a much more personalised experience than a generic stand-up show. The night is always a hit with everyone and a lot of it comes down to James' hosting (and the booze)! Basically, 5 Stars, would trade again." - Leah at Little Giant
