  • "Sally-Anne was a pleasure working with when we booked her for our client, In House Events, to host their annual ICE Awards at Southbank's Queen Elizabeth Hall. Attending the event myself on the evening, I saw first-hand how Sally easily controls the audience and has them in raptures! - everyone enjoyed her topical comedy, and she has a lovely, easy-going presenting style on stage. I recommend her to any event manager looking for a solid and confident comedian for their awards night or event". Adam Levitt, Founder, The Covered Speakers Bureau.

  • Sally-Anne MC’d for us at a remote work event to cheer up our employees during a particularly bleak lockdown January in 2021. Sally-Anne was amazing at warming up the audience, introducing the acts and keeping the momentum of the event going. As a result it was a seamless laugh a minute with high engagement and great feedback! Devoirah Glaizner, Epam
  • What a fantastic night we had, it made the night so much more special, we laughed so much during the gig and our laughter didn’t stop there! We were talking about it for hours long after she had gone, telling each other the same jokes and just re-enacting the funny lines that made us laugh so much. I would honestly and genuinely recommend Sallyanne to anyone who wants a great night with lots of laughter, our Christmas party is one we will all remember simply because of how much we laughed!!Bentley
