What to Expect
With 20 years experience performing and producing shows if you hire me you can rest assured you are in good hands. I am an award winning comedian and a fabulous emcee. I am available to perform at you event or can put together the entire evening. I have been producing variety shows since 1996 and am very connected to other entertainers and can cater an event to your preferences. Music, Magic, comedy, circus all of these styles can be integrated into an evening of vanity fun or an evening of stand up comedy if that is your preference. Jessica Holmes, All Hassan & Samatha Bee are only a few of the amazing talents that have performed in my shows. I have produced evenings for 50-500 so if you provide the audience I can provide the fun!
I travel with my own glittery backdrop and can bring sound and lights if necessary. I want the client to be happy so if the request is to keep the show clean I will respect your wishes so that you are satisfied with your result. Ultimately if the client is happy I am happy. I adore making people laugh and any opportunity to do what I do best leaves me smiling.

Additional Booking Notes
I require a working microphone(ideally cordless), a spot light at a minimum and ideally a slightly raised stage to perform on.
I travel with a portable 8 X 8 glitter curtain and if the room where you are having your show need a little extra something my curtain certainly makes a ordinary room a little more fabulous. A tall stool is also greatly appreciated.
I have been producing shows for twenty years so if your company does not have access to sound and light equipment I can easily bring my own or rent it for you and include it in the quote.
