Philip was brilliant, read the room well and adapted the the multitude of cultures we had within our office. The Limerick he created specific to our business was excellent and I couldn't recommend him more for a work event.

Philip arrived when he said he would and delivered the best bit of comedy he could considering his audience where too busy talking or still snaffling on the buffet! He had a tough gig but like any pro, the show must go on. I would have no hesitation in recommending Philip, I think our failing was putting him on too early.

  • Do you do open-air acts?

    Provided there is a decent sound system available to me and a willing audience, I can perform wherever you need.

  • How long is the act?

    Anything up to 40 minutes

  • What other services to you provide?

    I can source other acts for your event if you wanted to have the option of more than one comedian. These acts can range from straight stand up comedy to musical comedy, character comedy, etc. I can also help with speechwriting for whatever even you're creating. Either starting from scratch or working with you to edit and develop something you've already written. This can be anything from formal presentations that you want to give an injection of humour, or a less formal speech such as a best man/groom wedding speech.
