“Chris Wainhouse was brilliant.
Took him about 5 mins to judge the crowd and from then he had them rolling with laughter.
Talking to him beforehand, a number of people said he was the most polite comedian they had met.
I have seen Chris a few times and that is why we asked if he could do our function.
Completely satisfied with his act at our Sports Dinner.”
