What a refreshing entertainer. After a long day of Powerpoint presentations and various business speakers, Ray gave everyone the opportunity to laugh out loud. His work with the audience was fantastic — fun, clean and so entertaining. The shadow puppetry at the end was absolutely mind blowing. Put simply, Ray was awesome.
