”What Barry did with our slides on best practice internal auditing was hilarious! The gala dinner was brought alive with a send up of the day’s proceedings – a must for every conference.” -Michael Bullock. Institute of Internal Auditors
“A great success! Barry captured and delivered what we wanted. Lots of laughs cleverly plotted around the use of internal corporate material. Barry created new material from some very commonplace corporate slides ensuring that it fit perfectly with the theme of our event.” - Jim Hamilton. BDO Simpson Xavier
"Barry Murphy's German alter ego, Gunter, is as laugh-a-loud funny as it is satirical. He deserves to be bigger than Riverdance and The Corrs put together" - Brian Boyd, Irish Times
"Subtly mischievous, always teasing, this clever comic works the audience like a chin-wagging barman" - The Scotsman
