The Access Group
"On behalf of Accessible Retail, we would like to thank you for your fantastic performance at the 2013 Christmas Lunch. From experience, we know how difficult it can be for comedians to control an audience in excess of 1,000 people, particularly without a warm up act, but you did it with aplomb! Your performance was flawless and we were particularly pleased with the way you judged, interacted and tailored your act to the audience. Clever, funny and engaging but without causing offence a very difficult balance to achieve. Well done."
