We would like to say a special thanks to Brian Patrick Mulligan for a truly amazing performance! He made our evening. He engaged the crowd, got them going, shared his vast knowledge of Ben Franklin, was incredibly funny and was very patient with us through the planning process. Brian really worked with us to tailor the performance to fit perfectly into our event. He was great about working with local talent and engaged our guests in the performance. It was an absolute riot! We loved it! Thank you Brian!!!!
Very entertaining and brought a lot of energy to get the crowd involved. He even brought his own props! I would highly recommend!
I cannot say enough.... The audience was fully entertained, engaged, enlightened, and educated!!! Our Constitution Day event was a huge success. I received numerous e-mails and phone calls after Mr. Franklins appearance all praising his performance. Each member of the audience came away with something new and a greater appreciation of Franklin's life and the events that formed our country.
Simply stated, it was great! Our residents could not have spent a more enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Many kudos to your "Sir Winston Churchill" show. Thanks so much. Let's do another of your characters in 2020.
Ben rose to the occasion, despite the heat, and he followed the opening story line beautifully.
Brian, aka "Benjamin Franklin", was awesome! Our HR Conference Dinner entertainment provided by "Ben'" was enjoyed by all of our attendees. We enjoyed the photo opp time and his speech and the Game Show was very entertaining, fun and interactive. Thanks, Ben, for a great time!!
Ben was a surprise for the bride and groom at my nephew’s rehearsal dinner, and he couldn’t have been better! He was so true to character in a really fun way, and was a total hit with the guests for photos!
We were lucky to have Santa Brian at two of our events this month. He did a fantastic job as our Santa and made our carriage rides with Santa a truly magical experience for everyone! We highly recommend his professional and authentic service!
I will definitely hire Santa Brian again next year, he was above and beyond joy.
Santa Brian was Great! Awesome with the kids. Worked great with the photographer.
Would definitely have him back next year!
It was great and loved it
Santa did an amazing job at the event. The kids had a blast!
Brian performed as Teddy Roosevelt for our large medical association conference Launch Party. He did a fantastic job!! His communication throughout the planning process was wonderful. He was interactive and engaging with our party guests and truly made the party an experience to remember. Would definitely recommend!
Brian (AKA Ben Franklin) was top notch. He arrived early and already dressed in character. He was ready for the sound check early and was happy to wait "in the wings" until we were ready to introduce him. He was funny and engaging with the audience of 360 people. His Huzzah chant was shared many times during our convention following the opening bit. I highly recommend him for a special guest at a convention, conference, meeting, etc.
He was a professional through and through. He was excellent to correspond with and was very helpful in planning the fine details of our 1920s themed party to make it a success. He was the perfect addition as the infamous Al Capone to greet our guests at the door and really set the mood for the night. I would consider planning a second themed party to have him back as Winston Churchill based on the pictures alone! He definitely added that extra element the evening needed!
Ben Franklin was very engaging and Teddy Roosevelt was extremely informative. Great addition to a Storytelling Festival. Brian did an excelent job with both. The makeup and dress really was fantastic and he actually became the character. Very nice press coverage which also called the perforance very engaging. The audience loved it!!
I hired "Ben Franklin" to drive traffic to our booth at a recent tradeshow and am so glad I did! Mr. Franklin was very prepared leading up to the event, including having a prep call to make sure we'd covered all details. Onsite he was punctual, personal, and engaging with the crowds. In fact, we received a ton of positive feedback that we had the best booth because of our Ben Franklin character. Highly recommend hiring Brian if you're looking to stand out!
Also was a big hit for my client appreciation party!
