  1. Tim Charlesworth, Greenwich Knight

    I can’t imagine engaging anyone else as helpful or easy to work with. Professional in every aspect of our dealings, he told us not to worry at the very start, and that’s how it was. Our event was such a great success and we were delighted.

  2. Amanda Pearn, Audley Court Ltd

    Dominic was absolutely fantastic and to quote our Technical Committee Chairman ‘was the best after dinner speaker we have had’ and we have had some very good ones from you. He is a credit to your organisation and we would highly recommend him. He had his audience worked out very quickly and kept their attention for the whole of his set, there were no private conversations going on whilst he was on stage! He also threw himself wholeheartedly into our raffle draw and made it very entertaining indeed with his quips regarding the gifts on offer – in particular the ‘teapot’ which was won by The Hit Man.

  3. The Guardian

    A comedian who makes you feel glad to be alive

  4. Phil Cooper, Chairman, Interact Derby

    Dom came highly recommended that we approached for our after lunch speaker at the annual Derby Interact Xmas luncheon. He exceeded our expectations in every respect, holding the room of 450 ‘professionals’ with consummate ease – which is no mean feat. Following the event we have received rave reviews including comments such as ‘refreshingly different’ and ‘the best yet’. One the many qualities that sets Dom apart is his unfaltering originality – and he most definitely is going to be a very hard act to follow. December 2018

  5. Accessible Retail

    On behalf of Accessible Retail, we would like to thank you for your fantastic performance at the 2013 Christmas Lunch. From experience, we know how difficult it can be for comedians to control an audience in excess of 1,000 people, particularly without a warm up act, but you did it with aplomb! Your performance was flawless and we were particularly pleased with the way you judged, interacted and tailored your act to the audience. Clever, funny and engaging but without causing offence – a very difficult balance to achieve. Well done

  6. British Energy Group

    Absolutely brilliant, his performance was top class. He was funny and compered the evening superbly

  7. Natasha, Centaur Media Plc

    Your expertise as a host ensured that the show ran extremely smoothly and made the evening a great success. We have received very positive comments about the ceremony. Our clients and guests enjoyed the event tremendously

  8. Lisa, Chartered Institute Of Marketing

    Dominic did a great job. He achieved the combination we needed of funny, considered in terms of the business audience, and consistent in his style. He wanted to change the format and I am pleased to say we were able to accommodate that. It would have helped if we had known before 4 o’clock, but that’s fine! He also didn’t blanche at the news that we might incur some sort of protest. It didn’t happen, but he was totally professional about the fact it might.

  9. insurecom

    Dominic came and entertained 200 of our customers and staff at our annual conference. It was the perfect way to end the evening. His performance was brilliant, he captured the crowd with his first joke and all eyes were on him for the entire set. He had done his research into who he was talking too and laugh after laugh was had by all. I have received lots of praising emails for his performance since the event. I would highly recommend him Excellent stuff!

  10. The Access Group

    You set the tone for the evening perfectly, and everyone loved how you made it very “Access”, hopefully you enjoyed the gig as much as everyone else did. After big events like this we survey our staff and 90% rated your set as excellent and I keep getting asked if you can come back next year!

  11. Andrew Bedford, UK Financial Services Distribution

    We have used Dominic a number of times as our key “go to” After-Dinner speaker and host for various conferences and dinners. The audience has ranged from 300 Mortgage Advisers to 60+ Senior Wealth Managers\IFAs and Investment Fund Managers. These Events were held in the UK and abroad – St Moritz was memorable, as was Celtic Manor and Cardiff castle! Every time Dominic has delivered 100% and we would not hesitate in using him again and recommending him to others for a funny, interactive and safe evening of topical entertainment.

  12. Sainsbury Supermarkets

    I so enjoyed your performance at the British Bakery Awards and particularly how you tailored your act to the audience so specifically. A lot of effort goes in to these evenings and having such a professional host is really essential, thank you.

  13. Deloitte Partners Dinner., The Great Room, Grosvenor House

    I think you could tell from the reaction you received that we were delighted with your performance last Friday evening. Many colleagues in the 600+ audience congratulated me on the choice of entertainment. Sharp, quick and clever. I think you caught the mood perfectly.

    Deloitte Partners Dinner., The Great Room, Grosvenor House

  14. The Q Awards, Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London

    I wanted to thank you for recommending the hilarious, entertaining and very professional Dominic Holland for our awards last night. His cabaret was excellent, funny without being smutty or offensive and the reaction from the audience really was outstanding.
