Dean was very well received by our guests and the room was echoing with laughter for his whole presentation! He arrived in high spirits, was overly engaged with us from the very beginning and understood our audience very well. The atmosphere in the room was cheerful and lively during his performance and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to have him join us on the day.

This is the second time we have used Dean as our MC at the Carpet Court Xmas party.  Not only is he very funny but he is an excellent and professional MC who made sure the night ran smoothly.  He makes an organizer’s job so much easier by working with the band, speakers etc to keep the night on track.

Dean did a great job at a small scale customer night. This is a first class show that can be done anywhere without the need for special effects and glitter.  Very simple and very funny.

One of the best nights I have ever been too, we were sore in the stomach from laughing so much.  Dean is the best ventriloquist I have ever seen.  A very clever performance with great audience participation.

Dean was very entertaining, funny and different from other acts we have had.  He was a delight to deal with and everyone really enjoyed his performance.  We were laughing hard and wanted more as we called out for an encore.  We loved it.
AMP Financial Services

Dean Atkinson was sensational. That wasn’t just my impression, it was also the feeling of the many people who came up to me after his show. He was extremely funny and very clever and quick witted, while remaining extremely attentive to the nature of his audience. As a result, our college dinner is already going down in history as one of the best college dinners ever, if not the best.
Royal Australian & NZ College of Ophthalmologists

Dean was an absolute highlight of our event.  Incredibly professional, organised and he was able to have our audience in fits of laughter.  I’ll admit we did have concerns whether ventroliquism would be seen as a little “childish” given the tone of our event, we were thrilled with how well it went down and would have no hesitation in recommending Dean to others.

"We loved Dean he was amazing, clever, funny and read the audience perfectly.
