Mick Miller did my 60th and now my 70th and wedding reception, held in a marquee, in our grounds, on the 29th August 2020. He arrived early and mingled with our guests, some of whom he has history with. His set was, as ever, exactly what was needed and enjoyed by all, even those who had never heard of him, but, for me, the nice touch was he stayed quite late, hopefully enjoyed himself, but was appreciated by all. Great bloke, great value (though don’t tell him that). Will book him for my 80th. Not forgetting all those at “After Dinner” battling away under very severe restrictions.
Dear Sir / Madam. Whilst we do appreciate any comments with regards to entertainment, Tam isn't one of our registered artistes, and nor have we ever booked in him for any events in the past. Can I therefore ask if you would delete this review as it gives a negative opinion of our company and the service we provide, and should be directed at the relevant persons involved in that booking if you are able to establish that. Best wishes After Dinner Speakers & Comedians Ltd
This is just a quick note to say thanks for arranging for Dr Xand to present the British Parking Awards. Xand simply excellent from the moment he arrived. His engagement with the design and AV team was much appreciated, especially as we had a new more animated show. My colleagues and several guests appreciated how he had a crafted a personal and very funny parking themed talk that also drew on the short list for the event. And he kept the whole show moving with charm and a real sense of connection with the audience. Throughout the day I was so impressed with his generosity in making time for the many parents and grandparents in the audience who wanted selfies, signed books and video messages for their kids and grandkids. Working with Mark at Comedians means we have been very lucky in our speaker selections over the years, and once again it was very much a case of people saying 'that speaker was the best one yet!'. Xand has set the bar even higher for the next awards. I would highly recommend Xand for other awards events.
Our guest speaker Venn Tracy was spot on as usual. We have had the pleasure of Venn's humour on previous occasions and always find him to be very funny and professional. Bill Hollewyn.
the two comics we had one was all right, but the second who we have had before was brilliant.
Mick Miller was probably the best comedian we’ve had in a long long time. 45 guests laughed nonstop for 60 minutes. No bad language, no rude jokes just funny, funny, funny and such a refreshing change. What a gentleman! To be highly recommended.
If you are looking for a swearing blue comedian then Mike Farrell is NOT your man. On the other hand if you want someone who can entertain an audience from a wide spectrum he's the one for you. Mike kept an otherwise noisy audience comprising of men and women from an age range between 12 and 75 laughing for just short of an hour with clean funny stories the majority of which were new material. Never had such positive feedback having run the same function (a bowls presentation evening) for a good few years. He was recommended by after dinner speakers and comedians and based on this experience will certainly use their service again.
I cannot speak highly enough about Lea Roberts. I have been organising dinners and speakers for over 15 years now and there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the audience with tears of laughter running down their face. When I say the best I have ever seen, don’t believe me, believe the other 130 attendees who all echo my thoughts. Absolute-Lea magnificent!!!!
Speaker Kevin Ratcliffe and Comedian Big Lou Jones were both excellent. It was particularly pleasing to see them both stay and socialise with our guests for well over an hour after they had finished speaking. Kevin even buying a round of drinks for the top table. The first guest speaker that we have had who has done that. Its a small gesture but to those who had spent months organising the event it was worth its weight in gold. Well done and massive thanks to both of them. Highly recommended.
Just a quick note to say that Lea went down a storm Friday night. He was on top form. Please pass on our thanks from the Insurance Institute. He made me laugh so much I forgot to hand him the cheque!
I have been using Mark Davis at After Dinner Speakers and Comedians for around 20 years. They have supplied my cricket club with top cricketing names and comedians and never let us down. This year we had comedian Josh Daniels for the 3rd time. He is a great lad and superb comedian with a twist (guitar). The audience loved him and he pitched his material just right. We have held gala dinners , club dinners and fundraising nights with the help of Mark and his team. Superb service from start to finish and you can trust them to provide the right people for your event. John Wood. Pool Cricket Club
Superb professional service as always.
It’s been a week now since Billy spoke at my Captain’s dinner and I’m only just coming down from the hype of it all. Billy was just amazing sharing his insights to his golfing career and my members and I were simply in awe …. He was just amazing. So thank you for making this happen it is very much appreciated.
Ross Kemp was one of the best by far. He stayed 3 hours afterwards and had one hour of selfies. Great mix of serious and amusing stories. The feedback was incredible. He says he doesn’t do speeches like this normally but thoroughly enjoyed it. He lived in Yorkshire when he was in Emmerdale. Thanks Howard
Well, what can I say! Kevin Keegan was absolutely superb. Such a well grounded and lovely gentleman and was a great hit with EVERYONE who attended. Please do pass on my thanks for his patience throughout dinner with selfies and endless handshakes, and of course for a very witty and professional presentation on stage. Roll on Potato Industry Awards in Harrogate!!
We booked Anton Du Beke for a black tie dinner on the Isle of Man. He appealed not only to our corporate membership, but also to a wider audience, mainly female and we achieved over 250 guests. He was the perfect guest from start to finish and gave his time freely to all who attended – I have never seen a room full of people so warmly welcome a guest speaker. He talked, gave a quick dance demonstration and even sang – he is the complete package. Would not hesitate to recommend to all.
Just a quick thanks regarding Pete Emmett and his compere skills recently. We had an on stage incident ( nothing major ) that could have impacted guests entertainment. Firstly he spotted and recognised it, secondly he tgen managed it without anybody in the room noticing. Slick and professional and we are very grateful. As usual every other box ticked too.
Dean Windass was brilliant. All our members thoroughly enjoyed his honesty regarding his playing career and personal life. A fabulous evening. Please pass on our thanks to him.
I am just writing to say a huge thank you to David Kendall for his After Dinner Speech at Bury Golf Club on Friday evening. Before the speech he was wonderful company during the meal and his speech was absolutely fantastic. I was still getting compliments on the Sunday evening. David’s delivery was excellent, his stories were clean and he was a rare commodity who could hold his audience without reverting to bad language. As Captain I only get one opportunity to host a “Captains Evening” and David made it a great success and one I will remember for many years to come. Please pass this note on to David as well as my thanks. Best wishes to a Class Act
At our Sportsman’s Dinner Mark Lawrenson was average IMHO. He recounted stories from his footballing career but with no real punch to them. His Q&A spot was relatively brief and again I was underwhelmed with his responses.
