"Great at the awards, loads of energy, improv and wonderful with the winners."
Campaign Press Awards
“The funniest man in corduroy! Fast, funny, topical, smart, observational humour.”
Technology for Marketing Awards
“Marcus was utterly brilliant.”
The Lawyer Awards
Marcus was fantastic at the Security Excellence Awards and got the tone of the evening just right. Judging from feedback, he is the most popular host in the ten year history of the Awards!
United Business Media
Marcus met the objectives set well. His stand up was engaging, un-offensive and had the audience in fits of laughter. His presentation of the awards was great and Marcus completed this in a timely manner. The audience warmed to Marcus well. The table of guests I was sitting with were in hysterics throughout his entire 20 minutes stand up session.
Marcus was very funny, entertaining and well received by the audience, and this audience can be quite difficult to please.
Marcus was a riot and the event was a lovely ice-breaker for everyone concerned! I thought that Marcus Brigstocke was very funny and I really enjoyed the informal atmosphere. We enjoyed the comedian very much!
The Teaching Awards
Marcus was fabulous. He was also a great guy from a production perspective; very friendly, easy going and accommodating when things overran.
In terms of performance Marcus was spot on- he gauged the level of the audience well and improvised effectively around the script, encouraged interaction and dealt brilliantly with a bit of well mannered heckling. One comment I would make is that when he first arrived he was very short with myself and the client – seemed very impatient and as if he did not really want to be doing the gig. I understand he is very busy and there was a slight delay to the start of the technical rehearsal but a little bit more of a ‘can do’ attitude (considering the size of his fee) would be appreciated. He made up for the slightly ‘off’ start with an excellent performance but things are so much easier when artistes are a little more polite!
Crown Business Communications
As always we were looking for the right mix of intelligent humour and current affairs. The audience of senior professionals can sometimes be hard to please but on this occasion we feel he had the balance just right. The audience were engaged and very entertained.
Marcus did a great job and exceeded all expectations. His mix of enthusiasm, charm and intelligent wit had our audience falling out of their seats. He was very personable and happy to mingle with the crowd before and after the awards.
Thank you so much for entertaining us after dinner on 25th February. The feedback has been excellent and I am most grateful to you.
Finance & Leasing Association
There were huge problems with the venue and their organisation. Marcus however, did an amazing job. You’ve provided me with many hosts now and I can say with absolute confidence that Marcus was our best host yet – having to grapple with a noisy crowd – half of whom could not even get to the stage because they were blocked due to the cramped nature of the room. He was bloody brilliant.
Point of Purchase Advertising International (Popai)
Thank you for your endless patience with this one. It paid off! Marcos was fab, charming, intelligent and funny. A true professional. You are a superstar and I really appreciate all your help!
Marcus was a complete pleasure to work with, professional, helpful and well rehearsed in the awards presenting job which made life really easy. His act on stage was hilarious and his manner during the awards was spot on.
