I strongly recommend Danny. I have worked with several Emcees and he is the BEST. A class above all. He has done extra by spending time to research on us, remaking out a solid script and helping us to really promote our event. He has clearly demonstrated that he knows us, engaging the audience with his humorous off cuff lines and making us feel at ease. Booking him and it will only be him for our actual Gala Nite!!! Thanks Danny!”
