I know the message will be passed on to other Rotary Districts – watch this space.”  Rotary District 1070 Conference, Eastbourne .

 “I was told by one of our audience that he had laughed so much he ached all over. Along with the rest of the audience, I shared his experience.Thanks for being involved in the conference, you were great & they were all gob-smacked.” - Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick.

 “You were great! Everyone really loved the opening line; your material was very clever & very funny. I wish I could use you at all our events but I guess I shall have to wait another 5 years.” – Marketing Services Manager, NEC.

 “Thank you for your first class after-dinner entertainment. As I looked round, the whole room was buzzing & it was apparent that you had the whole audience eating out of your hands – wonderful to see.” – Grundig.

 “Thank you so much for saving the day on Monday, you were fab – the consummate professional. Until you observe a real trooper at close quarters, I do not think it is possible to appreciate just what it takes to work an audience.” – Pepi & Keith Simpson M.P., House of Commons.

 “A small note to express an enormous thank you for your brilliant contribution to our Variety Show on Sunday evening. I do not recall an audience, or me, laughing so long & so loud. My only regret was that you could not be there to hear the massive ovation which you received in absentia at the end of the show.” – Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham .

 “Thank you for having saved our bacon at the recent AGM. It was like you slipped on the Network VEKA glove as you embraced the style of the organisation & its characters. You helped make it an unforgettable event; I hope our paths cross again soon.” – Network VEKA.

 “THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THESE DAMES” – The panto dame with her lavish wig, billowing gown & ton of make-up is an essential ingredient of any show. The Stage pays homage to the ten top performers.

  1. DON MACLEAN: This former Crackerjack presenter is based in the Midlands & has been seen regularly performing at The Hippodrome Theatre, Birmingham in recent years. Technically respected, Maclean’s quick wit & ability to ad-lib his way out of just about any situation has won him many admirers & he is said to revel in the high pressure atmosphere. – The Stage.

 “Thankfully, despite his Radio2 ‘Good Morning Sunday’ & his success at playing pantomime ‘dame’ Don Maclean is still one of Britain ’s finest stand-up comedians. It had been 16yrs since I last saw his act & I had forgotten how brilliant he is. Maclean breezed on with an instant confidence & a pace & delivery that would have put most younger comedians into the shade. The guy is shrewd too; he knew how far he could go & kept within those boundaries. There was an abundance of topical gags, a great routine on his native Birmingham & some delightful observations on married life. There was nothing borrowed from other comedians or the endless round of gags they use. He is a one off & living proof that you do not need to stoop to blue material to keep an audience roaring with laughter for an hour. I have never seen a comedian create such an impact at this venue. There was no encore either; he left them wanting more & more. What a pro!"

John Hannam, The Stage.
