What they say…

“We were exceptionally happy with Simon’s performance, professionalism & humour he bought to our event.
The night was a success with lots of positive comment.
On a personal note as someone who put a lot of work into organising the event I very much appreciated Simon’s skills as an emcee & comedian but most of all a really nice guy.  I would not hesitate recommending Simon to emcee any event and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
Thank you also to your team for recommending and booking Simon for our event”

“The whole experience was fantastic from the initial phone call with Mark to our fun filled half hour with Simon.

Simon was fantastic and hit the mark with everyone – a true professional.

Thanks again for making the experience so easy and enjoyable”.

“The event was great and so was Simon’s performance. He was received extremely well especially the international accents he did.”


“We recently had Simon Kennedy Emcee our Awards Gala Dinner. Not only did he have the whole room laughing, Simon tied the whole evening together. He was able to engage the audience and really bring everyone together. Simon’s transition from comedian to emcee was seamless. I would also like to thank Simon for going above and beyond his call of duty by liaising with F&B when I was running late due to a delay with the printer. I was very impressed with his professionalism, it is obvious he has years and years of experience. I received a lot of positive feedback from delegates the following day, it really couldn’t have gone any better. We will definitely be using Simon Kennedy again, thank you!”

I couldn’t believe how skilfully he read the audience at our event and how he cleverly adlibbed his way during the presentations. He took control and the evening ran smoothly under his steerage. I was watching the audience throughout as it’s always daunting when booking someone for the first time. They can make or break an event and it’s a reflection on you. There was no need for worry. They couldn’t have been more positive. Everyone was in stitches including me.. no need for sit-ups the next day! I would definitely use Simon again without a doubt as an MC or comedian. I trust him and he is a consummate professional”
Samantha C | Ramsay Health Care

Thank you for touching base with me. The function was a great success! Simon was fantastic… He really helped to keep things running smoothly was funny and even helped out with a small AV issue we had with the speakers on the night. All of the guests and the company directors really enjoyed having him along. And he helped keep my ”event mode” stress-head self calm! :} I will definitely recommend Simon in the future”
