Testimonials for Andrew Startin

Andrew really kick started our event in great fashion, he was very funny and got a strong response from the audience. His ability to keep the audience amused through his various impersonations was amzing. Post the event we had lots of positive feedback about Andrew's performance.

Western Bulldogs Football Club


A very enjoyable routine, was able to ad-lib sections and to include some jokes from the crowd. Did a great job of 'picking' on people from the crowd without being rude or offensive. Clearly a very genuine bloke and this came across to the audience

Victorian Water Industry Association


Andrew was excellent, perfectly suited to the mainly male group at the clients event. His impersonations of Bruce McAvaney and Sam Newman were hilarious.
