'I rate Lawrence one of the best corporate hosts & entertainers in the industry.'
The Quiz Show with Lawrence was an absolute blast! It is always nice to work with someone who makes time beforehand and make sure that they understand the client’s expectations. Lawrence engaged the audience from the start and with his typical improv style kept a two hour product training session interspersed with a lot of fun, laughter and great comedy. When it comes to corporate entertainment and having produced special events for many years, I rate Lawrence as one of the best corporate entertainers in the industry.” ~ Kobus Van Wyk Pfiser Sales Team Conference
'Super talented, well organized professionals. A pleasure to work with!' Definitely exceeded my expectations considering that they had less than a week to prepare a customized show. The show was perfect! They incorporated the clients brand in the most imaginative & entertaining way. I would highly recommend them.
