"I just wanted to thank you for hosting our event. I have had great feedback from so many people saying how much they enjoyed it and saying what a great job you did. A lot of people appreciated that it was a hard gig to get 220 people going that early in the day and pre-alcoholic drink – but you did it".

"We thoroughly enjoyed Shaun's performance. As soon as he arrived during our pre-lunch champagne reception, he was inundated with requests for autographs and photos. He joined the LOYA table for lunch and was excellent company. Shaun started his performance with a powerful song and continuous laughter accompanied the comedy performance that followed. Overall Shaun was a great success, and we are very pleased that he was able to perform for us. He really is a very friendly, yet extremely professional entertainer."
