Our decision to use James was based on the rave reviews we read on his performance. He was very responsive and accommodating during the booking phase. He was also punctual. Although James was generally funny and some of his tricks were good, the performance lacked the energy and pizzazz we expected. The delivery of some of his comments also made him come across as being rude and not appropriate for the audience. Maybe it was an “off” day for James but we found his act to be disappointing.
