When Julia Morris is in full verbal flow on a stage, it's as though Joan Rivers, Germaine Greer and Betty Boop are all living inside the same body. Phew, she's a scorcher.
Breathless, glamourous, camp, snobby, self deprecating, gossipy, fastpaced, surprisingly barbed yet subtle with a stream of energy and material that is a lot stronger than her brash-but-catty style might suggest... a delivery so relentless that you beg her to inhale, so rich with potential catchphrases you struggle to take them all in. It holds the audience who can’t afford to lose concentration for a split second for fear of losing something great.
Julia Morris was an absolute delight to work with for our Awards Night in June 2010. She confidentially executed a heavily scheduled presentation of over 40 awards, yet still maintained a sharp wit, sassy humour and friendly yet professional demeanour. Her ability to work with a large number of audience members, and an even larger script content ensured that not only were our guests entertained but we were also able to stay within our production times - a skill always valued by our other suppliers assisting us with the event. Lastly, our event was held on one of the rainiest nights of the last couple of years, and Ms Morris arrived by foot to the venue wearing gumboots (temporarily), full formal attire and a huge smile. Her good humour and lack of pretension was widely appreciated!
Amazing energy and very well prepared for the day. The whole crowd loved Julia's work.
Great fun! Julia wowed the audience, appealing to all demographics. She pitched her presentation perfectly, a real send-up of the conference theme. Excellent evaluations: 6.8 out of a possible 7... the highest dinner score ever! Don't know how you will match this speaker next year.
Julia Morris was an absolute hit! Everyone loved her and I'm glad we chose her.
