Client Remarks:
"Thanks again for a great show. The entire Engineered Assemblies and Praxy team truly enjoyed laughing and getting laughed at throughout your set. Thank you for your direction in getting the most out of the crowd; it turned out really well." -Engineered Assemblies

"Ian... We wish to thank you for doing an exceptional job with about as tough an audience as you will ever meet. As you found out the audience was certainly varied and many of them very conservative by nature. Additionally I really appreciated your taking on the master of ceremonies duties and you performed exceptionally well with this task. It certainly shows your versatility and ability to think fast on your feet. To have you interject humour with such varied topics as you did certainly places your abilities at a high level indeed." - Blue Line Expo

"Just wanted to say thanks! Ian was a hit at our event on Saturday... everyone left with a huge smile on their face!" - Alano Social Committee

"I just wanted to send you quick note to say how great the comedians were last night! We all had a fantastic time, and I thought they all did an excellent job.
