Russell was great so please pass on our thanks. He had to be patient as we had a lot of last-minute changes but he went down very well with everyone so nothing but positive feedback.
Oh my goodness the event was fantastic! We have heard a lot of 'the best ever' from all kinds of attendees and you could feel the energy in the room. Russell was definitely a big part of that as he was faultless! His set from start to finish landed brilliantly and he was such a fun host. Everyone loved him.
Russell was so good, thank you so much for arranging him, such a lovely chap. He went down a storm. People in Law.
