We were fortunate enough to come across Sam McCool as a comedian for our charity fundraising event Ten Stars, to raise money for the Oncology Children’s Foundation on Saturday 27th August 2011 at Bondi Social. Lucky for us Sam, is not just a comedian, he’s a ‘Master of Atmosphere’ and a ‘Mood Changer’. Without a doubt it was Sam’s words, wit and charm that relaxed the crowd, lifted the atmosphere so that every single person in the room was in stitches of laughter. I can safely say, that after Sam performed we noticed a huge spike in the level of raffle ticket sales and silent auction bidding on the evening. I am certain that Sam’s entertainment set the mood for the crowd on the night that resulted in us raising $20,000 for this wonderful cause. Weeks after the event I still have clients and guests commenting on how great ‘that Sam comedian was’ and if he ‘Does he do corporate gigs? I’d like him to do ours’. One guest on the evening (who spent a lot of money on a few silent auction prizes) said ‘Sam was great, he addressed everyone in the room, no-one felt left out. He has to be the funniest comedian I have ever seen’. I have no hesitation in recommending Sam McCool to anyone wanting to leave a lasting and memorable impression on their guests. We’ll be hiring Sam Mc Cool again next year for our event, without a doubt.
