Al Prodgers Comedy What Clients have had to say about Al: REFERENCES Thank you for once again doing an excellent job both as MC and entertainer. It gives an event manager great piece of mind to have an able MC on board, one who puts in special time and effort to make sure that you understand the client’s briefing and requirement. Being prepared to do at least a telephone briefing once the full script is available is rather important to me – strangely a number of MCs do not so readily agree to this. All of the best to you. Marlé Lötter Events Manager    We must send a big thank you to you, you were a great MC for the evening. You made the night a success, we had so many compliments about you afterwards, WELL DONE!!! Bradley Morrell, King Pie Charity Golf Day   Yours was an awesome performance and I can’t thank you enough for pulling everything together so brilliantly. The research you did and outfits you used were all amazing! If it were up to us we wouldn’t use anyone else!! Ever! Sincere thanks! Angus Campbell, Campbell & Campbell   “On behalf of the Grade 7 Fundraising Committee we would like to thank you very much for the awesome job you did for us on Saturday evening. We have had so many compliments about the event, especially about how funny the comedian was!!! You were absolutely brilliant!!! Thanks to the generosity of so many people the evening was a huge success! Thank you Al!” Deirdre Lister. The Grade 7 Fundraising Committee.      ….”We were thrilled with Al and his Mc and comedic abilities. Al did more than just show up for the event. From start he was easy to work with and remained flexible in the face of changes and additions to the program. His performance had the audience laughing the entire time…..”Mrs Nicolette Laubscher - Spar Lowveld    Thank you SO much for the most fantastic evening last night! We had a fab time and the comedians were absolutely phenomenal! Al was a gem and took such great care of us, raising almost R24, 000!!! Sue Fowlds, Principal, Wandsworth School    Dear Al, Just to say that your performance on Wednesday was absolutely brilliant!! We got all the accolades which ultimately belong to you, such as replacing a proposed lecture with comedy which was thanks to your performances at the Showcases which made this easy to imagine and engineer. Other feedback we got was that you were the perfect persona for the audience and that you had clearly been briefed well which speaks to your perfect execution of the few items we discussed. The Builders’ Chief Buyer was thrilled with what you said about their stores!   I really liked your point about people and brands, and it was specifically your performance which turned the evening into an absolute success. Many thanks! Cheers, Paul Vonk, SAKATA    Thank you for making our event the success it was. Our customers loved you. We will most certainly use you again. Take care. Gabriella Brit, Huawei   “We were only exposed to one session with Al, his session was fun and interesting. It was very well researched.” “Awesome people, all of you. Love the energy and passion.”  “Very knowledgeable and comes across as a specialist in his role. Someone who is passionate about what he does and an ambassador for being professional.” Investec, UK Banking Team    Thank you so much for making it such a pleasure working with you!  Please see below feedback from our team for Al: •	It was a real pleasure to work with Al once again. Our corporate show was complex and relied heavily on Al as MC not only to follow script, but also to use his initiative and experience to improvise where necessary. Al brought the necessary gravitas to the event while still infusing the running order with the required amount light hearted comedy. Al was prepared and punctual, a true performer that I would recommend to others. •	Al was awesome and so professional. He really did a great job impersonating Caesar! Would definitely recommend using Al for future events. •	Loved how seriously he takes his preparation. He really tries to get to know the client and the reason for their function. I liked that he could be honest with us when he thought our ideas might not work (the Trevor Noah joke).  •	We appreciated how he really took on the role we had assigned him – he completely embodied the character. He is a total professional, understanding the process and making allowances for change at the last minute. I unreservedly recommend Al Prodgers! •	Al was outstanding as usual!! Campbell & Campbell for PG Bison - Aug & Sept 2015   We would like to show our greatest appreciation on your sincere and very professional efforts in the success of our Family Day on Sunday 4 October 2015.  Thank you for being on time and thank you for being kind and friendly.  We received many compliments including one from our COO! She said  "Al made the day!"

Div Lamprecht - (Regional Executive – SA Institute of Chartered Accountants)"Al was really fantastic. I personally am not a big fan of comedy because of the  'abuse' of groups that often takes place, but Al did not need to do that to entertain his crowd. He was marvellous in that he read the group very quickly and very well, and entertained them specifically. We have had a very positive response from the doctors and they have requested another performance by Al early next year."
