Client Comments for Dave Thornton
Dave Thornton travels from Victoria Australia
- We decided to ask Dave to be the main entertainment at our recent Corporate Christmas Party. This is our most significant event on the annual social calendar and included a mixed crowd of over 100 staff and associates. So it goes without saying that our expectations were high - and Dave did not disappoint. Dave interacts well with his audience, relates to all types and is just a down right funny bloke. I'd love to have him back for next year's Christmas do. Thanks Dave
- A quick and self deprecating wit... an engaging comic with a truly Australian take on life.
- He's razor sharp and very funny.
"From the beginning of the process through to the end, the customer service has been of a high standard and both Tamie and Nina were great to deal with."
