I’d recommend Marty as an awesome MC for any event. He is professional & instantly bonds with the crowd. You can see all those years working as a comic in the UK as soon as he’s up on stage. Where he gets his energy from I don’t know, but he has a sixth sense for knowing how to transfer it to the crowd and keep your conference bubbling along. When you add to that his ability to do one of his own keynotes, that slot in anywhere on your program, he is also incredible value for money.– Louise Chamberlain, Director of Marketing and Business Building Programs, Kao Australia
Marty kept the entire evening moving along with his humour, while maintaining the focus on the fund raising purpose of the function. He read the night well, kept everyone engaged and he made an important contribution to the success of the evening.– Max Gosling, CEO, Cure Cancer
Marty ran the night seamlessly, took a noisy, rowdy crowd & controlled them beautifully & left all our members feeling so warm and welcomed. The UK Comedy Club Joke Competition was something I’ve never seen an MC do before, it was an absolute hit with the crowd, you engaged with everyone in the room, got heaps of laughs and made them all feel part of the act. Your consummate professional attitude took so much weight off my shoulders, allowed me to actually enjoy myself, and helped make our night a huge a success.– Jo Hitchin Events Coordinator, Information Technology Contract & Recruitment Association
The light hearted yet thoughtful approach was the highlight of the conference. We are delighted with the extremely positive feedback we have had.– Debra Cerasa, CEO of the Royal College of Nurses
How can we ever thank you enough? You absolutely made the evening with your comic genius and MC skills. We are still receiving glowing comments from our guests! And I’m still getting emails asking: ‘Who was that man? He was absolutely brilliant!’ You pulled together every part of the night (and at times a rather rowdy crowd) with humour and style ensuring everything ran perfectly. Event organisers should have you on speed dial!– Partners in Climb Cancer Charity
