Russell was a true professional. Onsite on time for rehearsals, was great in rehearsals, easy to work with and then delivered a tricky awards night (over 350 awards!) to a tricky crowd and everyone loved him, he did a great job.
Russell hosted our Cooling Awards and effortlessly brought out the comedy potential of the nichiest of niche subjects - fridges and freezers - while being sensitive to the audience, who really love their refrigeration.When you roll in the ad libs and the laugh-out-loud standup, you have an ideal Awards host.
The first presenter we have had in many years who commanded the audience attention from the second he walked on stage. He had everyone captivated and with him during the whole show.His stand up went down an absolutely storm with the audience and ours are a tough crowd to please. Russell made the whole awards presentation absolutely seamless and sailed through them very quickly and efficiently without them feeling rushed.An absolutely lovely chap too, very professional and punctual for run through and on the night. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better host – thank you so much for the recommendation.

Russell had the task of presenting around 20 awards to an audience of 1000 thirsty heating engineers. That he kept them engaged and laughing to the end is testament to his skill as a host. But the fact that I am still getting people complimenting me on a memorable night, six months on, is the true mark of his abilities. There was a 'warmth' in the room that Russell helped create and the photo of him being carried aloft by one set of winners defines the atmosphere on the night. Funny, interactive, warm, pacy: an Awards organiser can't ask for more!
The audience loved him! Russell understood the audience and type of event extremely well. He held the audience's attention, which is not an easy task, and then hosted the awards with great professionalism, energy and humour. Amazing!
He presented the awards flawlessly. Russell also wanted to ensure the ceremony had the maximum impact, and worked with us to change certain layouts of the stage and parts of the script so that they would have a better impact on the audience, which they did!
