Chris Ramsay was fabulous - I gave myself a headache and sore throat laughing so much and, working within the media industry it was as though he had written much of his material with me in mind!
Thank you for all your help for last Friday's show... [it] went down brilliantly and Chris Ramsay was an excellent compere. We have had some amazing feedback from the audience... Please do pass on my thanks to Chris and I hope that we can work again at some point in the future.
Chris Ramsay did extremely well at our event - it must be extremely difficult just to walk into an event with very little background to go on - especially a room full of lawyers! I was impressed that he had taken the time to find out a little about MASS and I thought he was excellent. He was funny and entertaining without being too rude or offensive. Please thank Chris and I wish him every success!
Chris Ramsay was fantastic!!! He went down a storm… he was amazing!!! Thank you!!
Just wanted to say that Chris Ramsay was absolutely fantastic last night. His set was spot on and he did a brilliant job hosting the awards part with Honest John. I couldn't have asked for better – he was worth every penny. Thoroughly nice chap as well. I did say a big thank you to him, but wanted to let you know how delighted I was as well.
