Ben Price- highlights- Australia's best impersonator
Ben Price was fantastic, working our audience. The amount of people he impersonated in a small amount of time was excellent and very funny. ... keep reading Warrnambool Standard
He came in as a bumbling English Nurseryman with an innovative idea for tracking plants - confused the life out of the professionals in the industry. He even managed to get them asking questions before revealing his true identity - which one would that be? He has his characters down to perfection - turn around and you wouldn't know you were listening to an impersonator. He was great fun. Excellent!
Thank you so much for making our Christmas Luncheon this year a special one. Your show was absolutely brilliant and everyone of our customers that I have spoken to have said how much they enjoyed your impersonations and jokes (my cheek muscles were aching afterwards!). I've no doubt you are Australia's best impersonator and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for similar professional corporate entertainment.
Our Excellence Awards went very well and Ben was great, very professional and accommodating. We had excellent feedback. His MC role was very well received as was his 20 min performance. Ben’s witty and light humour thrown in between the awards presentations kept the guests laughing and entertained.
Ben was one of the best MCs we have had throughout the six years I have been organizing conferences for Professionals Real Estate. He is funny, witty, has many characters to offer throughout the longer events which keep the audience entertained and brings a relaxed approach to an atmosphere that can often be frantic and stressful. I have received so many comments from our delegates post conference stating that Ben has been our best MC yet, questions on his availability to come visit their offices and just straight out - where can they get Ben's details. One very important MC characteristic that our attendees tend to base their decision on is the ability for the MC to mingle with guests and really be part of the conference. This is something that Ben does extremely well. Believe me, you will not be disappointed when hiring Borat, Arnie, Dr Phil or even just Ben Price himself.
At first as we came around the corner we actually thought it was Matt Preston standing there. The makeup, voice, gestures were all so spot on! Matt... I mean Ben... would have no problems fooling a crowd that he was there as a special guest judge at any conference. We've now seen Ben as Dr Phil, Borat (a personal favourite), Arnie and now Matt Preston and it still amazes us how he is the one person under all of these terrific characters!
