Dear Gary, A great big thank you from all of us at TNS! Your brand of comedy was exactly what we were looking for when we arranged the opening of our new Sydney premises. Our clients were extremely impressed with the whole evening, which was contributed to enormously by your comic set. It kept the evening light and allowed our guest to go home with smiles on their faces. Please accept my congratulations and thanks for your involvement in our special event.
Our thanks to Gary Eck for entertaining us. His performance was enjoyed by all as we had a good laugh at his quick, sharp humour. We also thank him for his tolerance as there were a few hiccups in the room set-up, but he good naturedly waited, and helped!, until everything was ready.
Despite the difficult task of entertaining a crowd of Accountants from Ireland to Sri Lanka, Hong Kong and Sydney, ranging in age from 18 to 60, Gary Eck broke through the barriers and had the whole room in stitches. He tailored his performance to our needs and thanks to Gary our night was an outstanding success

Gary had the audience in the palm of his hand. Very professional, funny til it hurt and a fabulous result! I would be more than happy to have Gary on all my events.
I just wanted to let you know that I am eternally grateful for the wonderful job you did for us last night. It was a complicated brief and run sheet and not only were you the consummate professional, you made me cry with laughter time and time again. After all these years managing events it's not often I honestly think a performer deserves their fee - but you Gary are a star.
