Thank you so much for an outstanding evening. What is extremely great is your comedy is fresh and up to date with no smut! Wives could enjoy it equally as it is so clean and clever! Well done. I am sure you will get lots of work from this. Warmest regards

Al was superb. The client was extremely happy and so was I. He handled the whole evening very professional and made everything come together. I will highly recommend Al for his MC and his show. He really did an outstanding job!
Rika Mitchell, Lateral Unison
"To find an MC that appeals to such a diverse group of people is not easy, yet Al seemed to manage this demanding task with ease. He kept everyone at our annual awards evening engaged throughout. We received numerous compliments from our staff during and after the function, and many remarked how impressed they were with Al's professionalism combined with an amazing ability to keep the energy level high and entertaining. Thank you, Al, for both sticking to our brief and adding your own touch of flair to the event!

“It was a real pleasure to work with Al once again. Our corporate show was complex and relied heavily on Al as MC not only to follow script, but also to use his initiative and experience to improvise where necessary. Al brought the necessary gravitas to the event while still infusing the running order with the required amount light hearted comedy. Al was prepared and punctual, a true performer that I would recommend to others.”
“Loved how seriously he takes his preparation. He really tries to get to know the client and the reason for their function. I liked that he could be honest with us when he thought our ideas might not work.” We appreciated how he really took on the role we had assigned him – he completely embodied the character. He is a total professional, understanding the process and making allowances for change at the last minute. I unreservedly recommend Al Prodgers!
