Absolutely sensational! Everyone had a fabulous evening and would recommend Ben for any event if they are looking for the WOW factor
Ben was one of the best MCs we have had throughout the 6 years I have been organizing conferences. He is funny, witty, has many characters to offer which keep the audience entertained and brings a relaxed approach to an atmosphere that can often be frantic and stressful. I have received so many comments from our delegates post conference stating that Ben has been our best MC yet

I've no doubt you are Australia's best impersonator and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for similar professional corporate entertainment
- AFMA (Australian Fire Management Association) Annual Conference
Not even 300 female football fans could throw Ben off. An amazing Dr.Phil that had us all laughing and wanting more of his uncanny impersonations. A sensational addition to our annual Ladies Luncheon.
- Sydney Swans
Your impersonation of Borat during the opening function of the 2011 nMB Annual Conference was outstanding. The character was convincing and entertaining and the public "roast" was well received.

At first as we came around the corner we actually thought it was Matt Preston standing there. The makeup, voice, gestures were all so spot on! MattÃ¢Â€Â¦.I mean Ben would have no problems fooling a crowd that he was there as a special guest judge at any conference. WeÃ¢Â€Â™ve now seen Ben as Dr Phil, Borat (personal favourite) , Arnie and now Matt Preston and it still amazes us how he is the one person under all of these terrific characters!

Ben was amazing! He was the absolutely right fit for our crowd, he is extremely professional and was able to feel out the energy in the room and work with items thrown at him off-hand. Sitting through 130 Awards is not usually a pleasant experience for anyone, but Ben made it very interactive and enjoyable, it would be a pleasure to work with him again in the future.

From a client point of view: Ben is a delight and is so very easy to get along with. You should have every confidence that whoever you send him out to will not have any issues with his professionalism. From a performance point of view: I certainly heard nothing throughout the crowd but praise for his performance. I was looking about during his act and there were a number of people absolutely doubled over with laughter. Some of the comments from our delegates were as follows: "That's my kind of humour, loved him", "What a fantastic performance, some comedians need to use bad language to get a laugh but Ben certainly doesn't do that", "How does he do that.....what a talented man!". We did have a very small amount of people at our event that had seen Ben two months ago at our conference in March and comments from them were that Ben certainly did have some new and different content in his act that made them laugh just as much as the last time.
