Craig Douglas
Audiences are invited along for a wild ride from one thrilling feat to the next. Bowling balls fly by, machetes whirl, torches blaze – and wait until you see what he does with a couple of ping-pong balls! When Craig takes the stage he sets a frantic pace, punctuated by his comic patter, and has an uncanny ability to engage people of all generations.
 
   
Glenn Ottaway

Whether performing as a master of ceremonies, or a featured performer, he delivers entertainment. Employing quick paced comedy with a pre-eminent ability to make the audience feel welcome, his material bounces from "in-yer-face" to "laid-back" and keeps the audience members' minds twisting and spinning as they try to keep up with Glenn's off-kilter philosophies on life and living. Versatility is the key word when describing Glenn Ottaway. From social functions to "meetings with a message", Glenn Ottaway gives everyone a gift to remember - laughter!
