The best act we have ever booked; his material, stage persona, delivery was excellent and, if we had been able to do another hour then the audience would have welcomed him with open arms. It was a total pleasure to be in the presence of this individual; a consummate professional with clever material delivered on the nail, absolutely faultless. I am still receiving messages from people who attended asking when we can book him again. I can’t praise him highly enough, I have never been a fan of musical stand ups but he totally changed my opinion of that; top bloke, lovely with it and I feel honoured to have been able to bring him to Gloucester and look forward to booking him again.

Adam brought the house down – we received really positive feedback from the clients attending and the media on the belly-laughs delivered. Secondly, Adam was a consummate professional throughout and charming when introduced to the client. And finally, Adam could not have been more helpful throughout the whole process.

Tommy Flisher, Union Street PR

Adam was fantastic. The session was great fun, his humour is spot on and he tailored it brilliantly for our audience. Our guests were thrilled to have the opportunity to see him in such an intimate setting and there were a number of fans in the audience. Adam was really helpful in getting things planned – everything went really smoothly.

Hilarious! Absolutely brilliant!

Adam has the instant ability to render hardened military senseless with laughter.

Adam was unforgettable. The most entertaining speaker we’ve ever had and thoroughly deserved his two standing ovations. Fantastic!
