Please can you thank Richard again and again for being the most fantastic MC and brilliant comedian.
He is so incredibly professional but also hysterically funny, it was an absolute joy, I haven’t laughed so much for ages and the feedback has been fantastic.
Foundation 49 is such a ‘small cog’ in the ‘big wheel’ of men’s health  and events like this Business Breakfast get men thinking and hopefully translating this into action.
They also assist in raising awareness of the importance of men’s health, Foundation 49  and not delaying in getting assistance for health issues, before it’s too late
P.S I lost count of the number of people who came up to me after the event saying how much they missed Richard on the radio!..... a legend

Richard Stubbs was engaged as the Master of Ceremonies for the Just Jeans 25 Years Event at the Regent Hotel, Melbourne. It was a difficult evening to present with guests ranging from family and close friends to the Just Jeans staff, VIPs and Board Members. Respectfully, Richard held the audience and in many ways the evening together. Richard wrote the script and worked with The ARC Factory on the format of the evening. Not only is Richard clever and witty, but importantly, as a comedian he understands that fine line of how far to take things, working with his audience and the environment he has been placed in.

All I can say is thank God we had Richard Stubbs last night at the Occupational Health and Safety Awards, because he saved the night. In between a power failure that stopped the Audio Visual presentation for about 5 minutes (and it seemed like 5 days!) and a drunken attendee who decided she didn’t like the awards and had to be thrown out, I suppose it was just another awards night! Richard’s sense of humour and quick wit with these accidents helped turn a potential disaster into what ended up being the highlight of the night!

Richard, as MC for our launch of Telstra’s Wireplay Computer Games Network, in a nutshell was fantastic and pivotal in making the launch a huge success.  Apart from being a seasoned professional and a pleasure to work with.  His humour, attitude and performance on the day really made the launch come to life! We don’t believe that anyone other than Richard could have done the job as successfully. The launch was technically complex and Richard has to banter with the live Melbourne audience and keep the show running whilst keeping his Sydney audience interested. He managed all this with his unique brand of humour. His obvious interest and enthusiasm for computer games really won the audience over. We could not have wished for a more appropriate MC.
