  1. The Scotsman

    A no-frills master of his craft

  2. The Guardian

    No one does righteous indignation with the same brio as Barrie, an inheritor of the splenetic mantle of the great 80s alternative comedians

  3. The Independent

    Barrie’s analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out…Excellent

  4. Rowena Haslett, BS College PTA

    Alistair hosted a fantastic evening of comedy for our PTA. He was extremely professional and the audience found him both incredibly witty and highly entertaining. We have been bombarded with positive comments from our attendees all telling us it was the best event they have participated in during the last year

  5. Valerie West, MD at C-Wise Group

    Amazing work. Thank you so much for all your professional attitude and great engagement with clients. They LOVED the comedy part, I thought you did a wonderful job.

  6. Simon Clark, Director – Forest.

    Thank you for last night’s gig. I’m delighted we asked you to do it and grateful you took on the challenge. Sorry conditions weren’t perfect but thanks for overcoming various obstacles, I thought you handled it fantastically well. We had a great response and the roars of laughter and applause spoke for themselves

  7. Duncan Meadows, AXA Insurance

    We recently hired Alistair to MC an important corporate awards evening for an audience of 200. Alistair was extremely impressive with some great tailored material, while creeping up to, but not overstepping the line for such an event. Many of the guests provided very positive feedback on Alistair and we definitely consider it money well spent. Thoroughly professional and a pleasure to work with.
