"An excellent performance and terrific entertainment, well received
by both staff and our two main targets - including the Managing
Director. While many of the barbs were quite sharp (as intended!) the
delivery ensured that it was well taken all round. The results (according
to management and staff) were exceptional! We look forward to working
with you again."
"Hilarious. Our sales team were thrilled to find themselves in
the spotlight as you satirised us all to within an inch of our lives.
Top entertainment for our business conference and a great morale-booster
for the team."
"On behalf of Alcon, thank you for helping us give David a great
send off. The night went very well but your performance topped it
off. It was a great laugh for everybody including David and it really
did highlight - in a nice way - some of the traits that David is renowned
for. It was a real laugh for all of us. If we ever have another function,
I will definitely get in contact with you. Thanks again!"
"It was a pleasure to have you entertain us for our 40th Anniversary/
Thanksgiving and Christmas Luncheon. Our guests were very impressed
and thought you were wonderful! We've had many calls with favourable
comments about your performance; we hope to see you both again soon!"
"The function was a huge success and the highlight was your
roast. We were still singing the next day! You hit the nail right
on the head, helped liven up the party and got everyone into the swing
of things. This was on function that won't be forgotten easily by
our guests, thanks to Comic Roasts!"
"Thank you for your hilarious performance at our recent function
- extremely well-prepared. Congratulations on your second hit show for
us! You again caught the spirit of the occasion with your natural humour,
quick wit and vocal and musical flair. You provided a level of entertainment
that ensured success for our very special occasion."
"Wow, guys, what a performance. The amount of knowledge you displayed about our industry was awesome! Our delegates felt we must have been feeding you for months. We had delegates and speakers from around the world and without exception they said they had seen nothing as good as you at any Insurance Industry function in any country in the world - and they had been to most. It is to your credit that you are able to please so many people with what appears to be consummate ease.
Thanks for doing such a wonderful job. The feedback from delegates
was unanimously enthusiastic
Take this as a booking for the conference
"Thanks Geoff and David for a brilliant night. They are still
talking about it and having a laugh. The guest of honour was hugely
surprised and didn't mind everyone having a laugh at his expense. Particularly
when the other guests were also part of the roast! All the work in the
preparation certainly paid off: it was a really professional job. Again,
"An outstanding performance with obviously too much background
material from my formerly loyal colleagues! If anyone could do a better
job than you guys I'd like to meet them. Everything about your roast
was absolutely first class. I might make a career of retiring and
hope that my next thoughtful successor rings you guys. If anyone ever
wants a reference on your talent and delivery, get them to call. I'll
tell them!! Many thanks."
"We needed something extra to move our annual conference from excellent to unforgetable. You guys provided that something extra and made for an unforgetable conference. Thank you so much Geoff and David."
"Thank you so much Comic Roasts... Your presentation was definitely
the highlight of our client function. You put on a very witty performance
with our customers especially enjoying being included in the roasting!
We've have received many requests from our clients for your contact
details for their next function. What more can we say?"
"The night was a complete success and one to be remembered by
our important customers. Extremely well prepared and perfectly aligned
to the nature of our business, including staff, products, customers
present and the industry. Great music and singing!"
"A comic treat... the highlight of our function."
"Your total send up of our industry and lifestyles was a huge
hit. The effort you took to prepare the satire was certainly evident
in the detail on the night. And the shock on several faces was hysterical!
Your performance was impressive to say the least and made for a great
start to our weekend."
"Your research and delivery of the performance about our organisation
and the people in attendence was exceptional. We look forward to engaging
your talents again in the future."
"Many thanks for your inspired and brilliant performance at
our firm retreat... We stand in awe of your ability to take a pile
of unconnected raw material and fashion a revue which perfectly reflected
what we like to see as our culture, while displaying absolutely no
restraint or diplomacy! We will unreservedly recommend you to clients
and competitors. Thanks again."
"Great entertainment. You have now given me an impossible task
- to top that for next year!"
"Youve had us in stitches twice now with witty, made-to-order
musical comedy. An outstanding success."
"Thank you for entertaining us so royally at the club's recent
staff Christmas party. Your performance was a delight - both very
funny and very morale-boosting for our team. We all appreciated the
time and effort you put into preparing and delivering your 'roast'
of all thyings and all people Hakoah. We marvel at your ability to
'hit the nail on the head' - your satire characterised both our patrons
and our team-members so accurately it was as if you knew them all
personally! We also enjoyed singing along to our very own new club
'anthem' - what a joy!"
“Phenomenal fun! You boys managed a welcome, a send-off and a send-up all at once - bringing laughter to all! Well done.”
"A hilarious send-up of all our people - me included! Highlight
of our conference and super entertainment all around."
"Thank you for making what was already a great night, an exceptional
night! Having each of Ken, Mike and John individually come up and
shake your hands during your rendition itself reflected their acknowledgement
of your talents and efforts to bring the whole night to a great conclusion.
Thanks again for your professionalism in your whole approach to the
"On behalf of the KLM team and Max Gelder, I would like to express
our appreciation for an excellent evening of entertainment. The professional
way in which you personalised the songs and sketches was great. Your
performance added a unique dimension to this important farewell evening
of Max. Looking forward to our next event."
“Thanks guys for a fantastic performance, all the staff loved it and a good time was had by all. The songs were terrific and there has been plenty of talk about their content!”
"What can I say? The evening went off fantastically well! The
relaxed atmosphere of ARIA along with your performance really got
the LEGO team into a very happy party mood. They got a good roasting
which really appealed to their sense of humour. Your whole performance
added to the evening and highlighted to all the team that we can have
a good laugh at - and with - each other. We spend a lot of time together
throughout the year working on various projects and sometimes forget
to have fun, your contribution to the evening was great and we all
had a great deal of fun together."
"What a highly entertaining evening! For an industry where so
much is all so serious and where we can easily take ourselves too
seriously, it was delightful for us to kick back and laugh at ourselves.
We enjoyed the way you set up the evening and were impressed with
your use of the brief. The chance to laugh at the way we do things
was just delicious and the 'Lundbeck Anthem' was wonderful. Aeroplane
Jelly will never be quite the same. Thank you!"
"Thanks for entertaining us so brilliantly. You gave us all
our MD, staff, clients and even the media a show we
wont forget! Your songs and patter hit just the right tone:
humorous, satirical but good-natured. As a result, the atmosphere
you helped create was very team-building; everyone you roasted
(me included!) felt part of the act
and the laughs from Mr Triguboff
quickly filtered down the line to all present. Quite an achievement
and very much a key to the success of the night. Well done! Well
call on you again."
"Thanks for all your preparation for the Netball Australia 'roast'.
We all loved your performance: it was the highlight of the night!
I have just passed on your details to the Commonwealth Bank (our major
sponsor) who also loved it and who want you guys for their Christmas
“League Legends and supporters were served a taste of tailor-made musical satire by seriously talented performance artists Geoff Sirmai and David Fisher.”
"You and David were simply great on Saturday night at our annual
'night of nights' - the Miracle Mile Barrier Draw Dinner. John Tapp
and the Minister were both thrilled with their personal 'roasts' and
we have had a lot of positive feedback from our guests."
"A witty and entertaining performance
the most stimulating
part of the conference."
"Thanks for a truly delightful 'roast' for our special occasion.
Your many and varied comedic talents succinctly captured James Odlin's
30 years in business right down to specific Odlin idiosyncracies.
You epitomised the Australian way of 'taking the mickey' out of someone
without offending them
all whilst ensuring it was highly amusing.
The comparison of the broad 'Odlin Family' and the infamous 'Addams
Family' will live long in our memories. You put the icing on the cake
of a great night and your talents and professionalism were outstanding
and devilishly/deliciously funny. Thanks again for a totally hilarious
and entertaining performance!"
"Many thanks for making the opening of our new Brisbane plant
such fun! Your clever and witty songs had everybody laughing and I
was amazed at how accurately you were able to portray the industry."
“Thank you for a fantastic, clever performance. I’ve had very good feedback. Once again, thank you for a job very well done!”
“The Commodore’s Ball at the Club has never been more fun. An intelligent and hilarious performance brought the house down, making the ball one of the most enjoyable in our 98 year history! Many, many thanks.”
"We were really happy with your unique musical performance.
I think that having your show totally tailored to the client makes
a huge difference and makes the night that much more special. The
St.George Anthem was fantastic and had people raving."
"Thank you so much for helping to make our National awards night
for the Telstra Shops such a great success. I have had many great compliments
about your routine and the way you were able to take the information
we gave you and turn it into a jolly good belly laugh at ourselves.
What was really great was that the songs have helped form a bridge
between the two teams and proved that - though both groups had their
problems - we shared a number of common concerns that can allow us to
grow as one team together. Thanks so much!"
"Excellent! Extremely funny! A well thought out routine, presented
with professionalism. We would not hesitate to engage you again."
"Just a note to express our gratitude to you for your fabulous
and highly entertaining Roast of our outgoing Managing Director, Ken
Ellis. The night was an emotional, highly creative and very pertinent
coverage of his life at Wella, his colleagues and his personality. Ken
and all the guests enjoyed the evening immensely due to your efforts
and skill. You were truly great, not only considering the difficult
time frame we provided but also the audience. Thank you
cant sum up our gratitude."
"Your roast of our six YPO graduates was just excellent. You
so very cleverly captured each of them perfectly with great humour
and entertainment. As you sang I watched the subjects faces
to see their reactions and each of them enjoyed the fun being made
of them - it was perfect and without any embarrassments. So cleverly
done! Thanks again. Im sure well have the opportunity
to employ your unique talent again."
