CITY OF SYDNEY
‘Rash’ recently performed for us at our end of year Christmas function. With a number of present and former rugby league players and supporters in attendance, ‘Rash’ smashed them with his down-to-earth comedy routine and very funny one-liners.
He was extremely professional in his approach arriving well before he was due on stage and had the audience ‘in stiches’ from his first gag until he finished a hilarious and polished performance 35 minutes later.
I would highly recommend Jason for any corporate, sporting club or charity organisation event if you’re looking for truly entertaining, original comedy act.
‘Rash’ Ryder is the man.
President, Western Sydney Men-of-League
My guests were blown away by how funny and entertaining he was. I was extremely pleased with how professional he was keeping a rowdy crowd informed, entertained and above all happy. Nothing was a problem. I thoroughly recommend anyone looking to add that extra good feeling to their event to give Rash a call.
