“Our appreciation for your fantastic and humorous presentation you provided. Not only did your ventriloquism keep everyone laughing, but also the actual content of your show was fabulous material. The show was uplifting, and stressed the points, in a funny way, on important issues the Federation wanted to deliver. Mark you are truly a great vocal illusionist! Again, thank you for agreeing to present at our conference and putting a relaxing twist to a long, intensive day.”
Ontario Secondary Teachers Federation
“Mark and Chester were fantastic. Even though Mark was prepared for an adult event, he quickly adjusted his material to be suitable for the children that were in the audience. I think this is the mark of a truly talented and versatile individual. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark & Chester for all types of events and would certainly have them back to entertain and astound us with their talents.”
Sunnybrook & Women’s College Health Sciences Centre
“I thought you did a fantastic job. You have very good characters and the audience could easily relate to them, especially the way you developed the relationship. Good lines many very good ones actually. Very good use of the audience and the audience topic (IBTR, insurance etc) to keep people interested. If you think an audience is waning, it is good to bring them back with something close to home and I believe you did that a few times. I.e. your use of Irving on a few occasions. Wholesome content and anything that could be ‘off colour’ was handled with tact without removing the humour. You handle their (your characters) clever movements with ease.”
