We hired John over the Christmas period to be the 'surprise' entertainment for the Christmas party events we were running. John's caricature skills were really impressive and everyone commented on how so delighted they were with his work. John is incredibly organised and is not afraid to get stuck in! We would definitely use John for future events, thank you!
