“Hugh seemed to go down a storm, he was getting lots and lots of laughs when he did his 20 mins free-style at the beginning. He checked some content with us before-hand, which was sweet, as we don’t usually have that. He was respectful of the awards and the script, and kept to it very tightly! He was a joy to have on the table and they enjoyed his company.” – BCSC

“He was brilliant and a perfect choice for the awards. This event is always the more challenging of our two award shows as its senior management and these people go to this type of event a lot however Hugh really did his homework on the company and industry which really paid off. He was also incredibly easy to work with and very laid back.” – Network Rail

He took time during the briefing to understand our business and was able to incorporate some really funny industry insights into his opening slot. He followed the brief, kept the evening running to time and was very sociable with the audience. Everyone loved him.” – Royal Mail
