Prunella Scales (Sybil).

"Thought I'd write and let you know how well you went down on Saturday night at the Forest of Arden. In a word, brilliantly!!! They loved you and thought that you really were Basil. They took some convincing that the fire drill wasn't rigged it certainly fell nicely for you."

HW Events.

"John you were absolutely the talk of the conference and definitely stole the whole show. Your convincing performance as Basil Fawlty was played with the utmost effort and energy (no mean feat, forty times a day for two days!) Everyone was extremely impressed, which in turn made us look good.

So thank you once again, you made the occasion truly memorable. I hope we have the opportunity to work with you again."

N & K, Burger Kind conference.

"Just a quick note to say a HUGE THANK YOU on behalf of the whole of the team for your superb efforts. You were a superb contributor and it made for compelling viewing!"
