James was an outstanding choice for our business event. He is extremely professional in his preparation and I was always confident in his ability to deliver a well rehearsed, tailored performance for this group of business people and government officials. James was flexible in meeting our programming requirements and production capabilities. He is fresh, funny, and charismatic, and won this crowd over from the start.
I’m gobsmacked! He’s VERY good. VERY talented.

After seeing James perform live I had to get him for our annual awards dinner … He certainly didn’t disappoint and left everyone in the audience was in total awe of the delivery of his show. A “must see to believe” performance that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to hold an event.
