Testimonials for Daniel Connell
“Daniel was picked because when reviewing a comedian for our event, he was the one that made me laugh out loud. In person, he did not disappoint! It was the first time the company ever used a comedian at an event, and he has set a standard that is going to be hard to beat next year! FABULOUSLY FUNNY COMEDIAN!!!”
Alison, Thales Australia
“We were fortunate enough to have Daniel Connell perform at one of our Coterie Group game day luncheons last year at Templestowe FC. Daniel was not only extremely funny and witty but a lot of our members noted his presence around the Club, long after his performance was over. His generosity and support was well received and he showed general interest in our Club and its members. We would not hesitate to invite him back and would certainly recommend him to other organisations looking for a fun night”
Michael, Templestowe Football Club
“We were lucky enough to have Daniel Connell perform at one of our monthly social events in April. Daniel provides endless belly laughter and was the perfect Tuesday afternoon pick me up! The staff loved the act and are still talking about it. We look forward to having Daniel back at future events”
Eleni, NAB (National Australia Bank)
It’s not often a comedian can have the whole room laughing for more than an hour without so much as raising their voice – definitely a must see in the comedy festival.
After an hour in his company you’re chilled out and smiling. Damned if I know how he does it. One to watch.
