During the COVID-19 pandemic, Keith attended many virtual events, booked as an exciting guest speaker. Read the feedback he has received below.

"It was a real pleasure to have Keith join us for our sales kickoff event. After a fun briefing call, he was able to weave in all the nuances of our business to create a funny, creative and relevant session. We didn't set him an easy task - we said make 250 people from Europe, Middle East and Africa laugh about cybersecurity- but he did just that! I'd have no hesitation in using him again" - Lauren, Event Manager, Palo Alto

"It went really well. Keith was great to work with and he really added some humour to the session.  Please pass on our thanks to him as we didn’t get to say goodbye properly." - Jennifer, Sopro

"Keith stole the show at an online comedy event that I hosted. His audience interaction was fantastic despite the remote delivery and he left many of the audience crying with laughter. Excellent effort and highly recommended!" - John, First Intuition Cambridge

"Keith Farnan attended our corporate end of year event in December 2020, and all I can say is “WOW” he blew the team away. He was so engaging, hilarious and took the meaning of a virtual entertainer to a whole new level. Keith took the time in his preparation to truly understand the company and its people, so we received a truly tailored session. He interacted with our staff and created a high energised and exciting performance. I would not hesitate in giving Keith a call again and again. He is brilliant!!! Thank you, Keith, for making our evening." - Stephanie, New England Seafood International

"Keith joined us for our virtual Christmas party to do a 30 minute set which was truly brilliant. He certainly did his research in advance (on the company and on certain members of staff) as well as taking in relevant information in a briefing call ahead of the event. He was really easy to talk to and work with, super friendly and, most importantly, incredibly funny. For our first experience of a comedian via Zoom, Keith was just fantastic. He very naturally interacted with all staff members, was hilariously reactive to our comments and laughter and overall, was a huge success. Thank you, Keith!" - Caitlin, Drest

“Keith was excellent and the feedback I have received from people across the firm has been really positive. I was delighted with Keith's performance and we definitely made the right choice. Keith was thoroughly entertaining and everyone left with a smile on their face. I don't underestimate the challenge of presenting virtually to 600 accountants following 12 months of lockdown but Keith was absolutely on the money!” - Catherine, Executive PA, Blick Rothenberg


Keith is regularly booked to engage audiences at in-person events, read his latest feedback below.

"Keith was hilarious from the moment we met him, he was the highlight of the event and really made it everything it was. He had done thorough research on the industry and companies in preparation for his set and it could not have gone better. Not only was his set highly entertaining from start to finish and face-aching funny, but he was the nicest guy, really friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend booking Keith for any event, he will make it memorable and very enjoyable. Thank you Keith and Champions!" - Alice, AGM House

"The event was a huge success and Keith was absolutely brilliant, he had the whole room laughing out loud and we would highly recommend him! We will also be considering him for our other events that we need a guest speaker for. Thank you so much for all your help with the booking" - Ami, Events Executive, Logistics UK

"Keith was an excellent host with a relaxed style and likeable manner. He had clearly prepared well and came up with plenty of material relating specifically to the finalists or winners. He also managed to keep the pace going during the awards ceremony but without it appearing rushed. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others" - Association Excellence Awards 

"Keith was a delight to work with. Not only was he very funny (goes without saying), but he upheld a professional attitude throughout and took the time to get to know the client and the point of the event in order to pull through key messages. His demeanour with the client and our agency was great and we would certainly recommend him for any event. We hope to work with him again in the near future." - Brands at Work

"I just wanted to say thanks for organising Keith.  He was a fantastic act, everyone enjoyed him, and it really made the night." - Hayley, Ubisoft 

"Keith compered our awards event brilliantly. He really understood the brief and the audience, and pitched his tone and pace perfectly." - Mandy, Red Bee Media

"We were very happy with Keith’s performance as well as with his flexibility and professionalism in handling an unusual setting and venue." - Helene, Motion Blur 

"On behalf of the Scottish Legal Awards, a very big thank you for an excellent performance. Looking around the room during your set, and seeing 500 lawyers laughing and enjoying themselves was truly fantastic. You perfectly tailored your material to suit the audience, and Margo MacDonald MSP, chair of our judging panel praised that you didn’t once swear! A rarity! And we thank you!! We wish you lots of luck in your career and are excited to have you showcased on our website." - Isla, Scottish Legal Awards

"Keith was rated no. 1 speaker after our festival among other +70 guests from all over the world. A clear sign that the crowd really enjoyed the way he helped us in entertaining the delegates and keeping up the good vibe. Is not easy to make a interational festival about technology and digital marketing not interesting only but funny, too. I don't know how, but Keith did it!" - Dragos, ICEE FESTIVAL

"Tryg Insurance has booked Keith Farnan on two occasions, and we are very happy with his performances. With energy and great humour, he managed to entertain a group of 130 managers with different nationalities and background. He engaged the audience in the show and made everyone laugh out loud. His performance was the talk of the evening, and we received a lot of positive feedback from our managers afterwards. We highly recommend Keith Farnan to other corporate shows, and we are planning to book him again." - Karen, Trygvesta

"The audience response was excellent – they seemed to enjoy it and there was a lot of laughter and applause. Keith was very good, amusing and very clean. It was humour the audience could relate to, quite casual and seemed almost ‘off the cuff and he was friendly and engaging." - Colleen Holgate, Fisher Scientific

"Keith recently performed at our Chamber Annual Dinner and it would be fair to say he went down a storm and was one of our most popular comedians to date. Keith had obviously done his research before the event and it was great to see him take notes when our key note speakers where presenting, this ensured his performance was bespoke to the audience. He was also happy to engage with the audience and this produced some of the biggest laughs of the evening. His jokes were excellent and they really hit the mark with our guests.  I would definitely recommend Keith for a corporate occasion, he goes above and beyond a standard performance and is great value, what’s more he is an extremely personable individual who made the effort to speak to the guests and the organisers after the event.!" - Stephen, Bradford Chamber of Commerce

"Keith has been MC for four years at The Star’s sponsored tent at the biggest flat racing event in Ireland - The Curragh Derby Day - as well as doing other corporate gigs for us.  Keith is extremely entertaining, flexible and open to challenging and diverse briefs.  While his repertoire is packed full of clever anecdotes, funny philosophies and gut-tickling gags, his delivery is supple enough to adapt to any audience – his ability to engage his audience belies years of on-stage experience, genuine affability and just pure talent." - Maeve, The Daily Star

"Mr. Keith Farnan is known to me.  He was an after dinner speaker whom I engaged as part of the annual dinner dance (black tie) for the Irish Institute of Master Mariners. Mr. Farnan was a resounding success and he made the prefect pitch to the audience of some 180 people.  His after dinner speech was current, angled to an audience of mariners and he was able to hold the audience with his cleverly spoken tales.  I have no reservation in recommending Mr. Farnan as a great after dinner speaker." - Capt. Brian Sheridan, Galway Harbour Master
