Tony is a speaker who relies on performance not notes. Why spend thousands on a celebrity name who will churn out a few tired anecdotes and not engage with your audience when Tony will have them rolling in the aisles? For a very reasonable fee, Tony will enliven any dinner, group meeting or social event with a costumed character talk. He never advertises - he doesn't have to; every talk he gives makes the group want to book him again and again. Quite simply, he is the best in the business. He is historical and hysterical.

The talks are ideal for WIs, Probus Groups, Historical Societies, Wine Clubs, Civil Service Organisations, Retirement Groups, Masonic Lodge events, Rotary, Social Gatherings, Private Functions, Golf Clubs and dinners or lunches of every shape and size.
