  • Carl was very puntual, and easy going with regards to the schedule of the event.  We had postive feedback from all the guests, and his stand up was targeted to all ages of the audience which as you know was a concern of ours as the audience ranged from 16 upwards.  Carl maintained our guidelines of what was acceptable in terms of content.  We were really pleased with the outcome and valued his contribution.
