“Our White party was a big success — my client was very happy and the delegates had a great time. ‘Andy & Dandy’ were the perfect addition to kick start the event — your presence and interaction with our guests was superb. I personally loved what you did and thoroughly appreciate professionals who get it and are capable of keeping in character and improvising with just the right touch, but not going over the line. Thanks so much and I won’t hesitate to contact you in the future or recommend you to colleagues.”

On behalf of the BCLA Executive, Staff and Membership, thank you for another year of your craziness! You add that extra spark that enhances the event every year, and you never cease to come up with the perfect match to our theme! Definitely puts smiles on many faces throughout the evening! Thank you so much for being there and for being so great!

We, of course, are still pondering next year’s theme. This year, we seem to have raised the bar again, particularly in the energy department, so if you have any great ideas about the entertainment that would get the room rocking as it was this year, please pass them on.

When you have time, would love to share a drink at Starbucks, talk to you soon about your experience this year, and to do a little brainstorming about some themes for next year.

The Character Guys are the real deal. Their recent appearances on our show were channel stoppers. Lots of fun, fabulous costumes and authentic makeup, plus the guys are funny and and can integrate their performance into any situation. Can’t wait to have them back.

For the last 15 years TENBC has booked the Characters Guys for numerous corporate events from high end galas to casual fun nights. Mike, Nick and the rest of the troupe are hilarious interactive performers who are adaptable to any situation. From strolling comedic RCMP Characters for a Welcome Reception to animated Game Show hosts for an after dinner show these entertainers are always a success. Their list of stock characters is almost endless…..each one spot on! They have also created custom characters for a variety of unique events. The preparation, research and effort The Character Guys put into every event exceeds expectations. They are truly professional in every sense AND FUNNY!

Thanks you for your professionalism, talent and ability to make anyone laugh!”
