We were (and remain) thrilled with Bruce. I received SO MANY compliments on him in every regard - professionalism, talent, ability to engage, sense of humour - complete package. I would recommend Bruce for any event as there is no question in my mind that he would add a lively and appropriate flare to any event one could imagine. We couldn't be more pleased with how this turned out. We were nervous for anything that we booked "sight unseen" but the reviews were bang on, he IS that good. I am sure we will use him again sometime!

Wow! That's all I can say about Bruce! He was a huge hit at our company picnic and the staff couldn't get enough of him. He was a first class professional--he arrived early, and went above and beyond to accommodate everyone that wanted to get their pictures done. I would recommend him to anyone looking for something different for their event. Thanks Bruce for making our picnic so memorable!
