Ben Van der velde, the compere, arrived in plenty of time before the show. He soon had things underway and did a really great job of compering and getting full attention of the audience plus a bit of focus on a couple of likely suspects near the front.!! All in all our staff and customers had a great night of fantastic entertainment.

Ben was an obvious choice for a recent corporate gig that House of Stand Up was organising, having compèred for us on several occasions previously. As expected, he didn't disappoint. Ben is quick to assess the audience, a great ad-libber and a humour that appeals to many age groups from all walks of life.
