Client testimonials

Simon was the perfect person for comedic relief after a long day at our Sales Conference. He captured the audience’s attention immediately and had everyone in stitches to the point where one of our Account Managers went purple!!! He did “Respectfully Rude” perfectly, and didn’t resort to making fun of people which was nice. I appreciated his efforts in taking the time to find out about the event, the audience, and also if there was any issues which he needed to avoid. I would recommend him for any event – small, big or large! Thanks so much Simon for a brilliant evening.


We had a great night and Simon was great, and carried off the Awards Presentation Hosting in an amusing but very professional manner. Simon also interacted well with attendees at the event and we received good feed-back during the evening.

I want to thank you so much for enabling us to have Simon Kennedy perform at our Christmas Party last Saturday night - he was absolutely fabulous! We had 110 people attend and when I looked around the room everyone was in stitches. I know at the end of his performance I had "Panda Eyes" from my mascara. Could you please pass on our sincere gratitude to him - he is such a lovely person and ensured that he was thoroughly professional, bantered with the audience and did not do anything that was offensive - everyone at work has been saying how great he was!!!

I can't recommend Simon enough, he truly understood our audience and what we were trying to achieve and it showed in his performance. Not only was he hilarious, but an absolute professional. We have had calls from attendees asking for your details as they were so impressed by Simon!

Simon Kennedy recently emceed Northern Beaches Mental Health Focus on Recovery Forum/EXPO at which we had over 300 people. He was amazing and very professional a great emcee and comedian, it was obvious he has years of experience. Due to a late start because attendees and stall holders arrived late we had to make many last minute changes to the program. Simon took it all in his stride, very quick on his feet and he even calmed me down when things weren’t going to plan. He was funny but also respectful to mental health and community issues I would definitely utilise his expertise again.
