Allison has been the emcee and host of the Live'r Up Talent Show in 2008 and 2010, which was a Gala Event in support of the Canadian Liver Foundation (we did not run the event in 2009 or she would have emceed that year as well!). She coordinated all talent and events for the fundraiser, which had a Variety Show theme, and of course emceed and hosted the event. She is such an amazing comedienne, professional and efficient at the event coordination and even though our talent was top notch, I got just as much positive feedback on her hosting as I did on the entertainment she arranged. She did an amazing job keeping things moving, on time, and with her hilarious flair. Also, we had one hiccup of one of the entertainers not showing up, and she had this issue resolved and handled in no time, so the show went on without a hiccup, and better than ever! Thanks Ally! You are the best and a definate rehire!
My company and I had the privilege of working with Ally recently and its safe to say she exceeded all of our expectations! From our first meeting she was very down to earth, personable and easy going. I instantly knew I wanted to work with her. Ally's beautiful, fun nature and positive encouraging outlook allowed our event to run seamlessly and all of my team has such a fun time! I look forward to working with Ally in the future and have no hesitations with recommending her to everyone I know. Thanks Ally!

"Ally herself is a riot. Allison is brilliant and beautiful, inside and out. Her story is phenominal and inspirational to say the least. She is an amazing example of maintaining a positive mental attitude amidst the wicked storms of life. It is a beautiful reminder of what little we have to complain about and how simple and refreshing it is to look on the bright side of our own lives and how lightening up challenges with humour gives a beautiful and light hearted perspective. The show had me involved at an emotional level - crying and laughing in the same breath. "
Sarah Parkinson, Canada Forces
"My name is Tracey MacDonald and I have been making a great living as a comedian for over ten years. First of all she is already a talented actress but also a natural stand up comedian. She has killer delivery and has helped me out whenever I am looking for new ideas for jokes. Allison Lane is someone I admire and look up to.We have done three comedy tours together and she has been out to Los Angeles many times to help me with projects I am working on. She is always professional,optimistic and has become one of my best friends.Ally has gone through so much in her life and I have always been a self depricating comedian. She inspired me to get back in shape and... for the first time ever I have changed how I look at myself and also my act to a confident woman with a new outlook on my body image. She runs her own business,owns a beautiful place,inspires women all over the world and always has time for fans,family and friends.I would recommend Allison Lane to anyone looking for the perfect performer for a Corporate Event,Motivational Speech,Television Producer,Comedy Club.She is the real deal. There is no other way to say it Allison Lane is a Star."

"Allison is a hilarious, strong, ambitious and very real woman. Her show echos all these qualities and takes you on a raw experience through part of her life. The show is real, heart-wrenching, moving and inspiring. Thank you Ally for always seeing the humorous and positive side of life."
Lisbeth Maidment, Dancer
"The first time I met Allison Lane, owner of Out of Our Heads, I thought she was one of the funniest, outgoing gals I have ever met. She is one of those gals that you never, ever forget. She has one of those dynamic big personalities that are expressed through both an incredible sense of humor and big light hazel expressive eyes.
What a gal!If you are looking for a spectacular entertainment for your event, I suggest handing the reins over to her. Brainstorming with her will take you to places you never thought existed. One year later when I run into people who attended Live'r Up, they still talk about the show. All I can do is say, "Thank you, the show was all Allison".
