  • Forest Industry Contractors Association - Entertainer - November 2016 Jamie did a fantastic job at our national conference and we would highly recommend him! Forestry blokes are a practical bunch with a special sense of humour, but this is exactly where Jamie thrived. He has an innate ability to read the crowd and pick up what makes them tick. He took us all for a great ride, and knew the perfect moments (and people!) to bring out the best laughs. Jamie is a pleasure to work with - very easy going and all about giving the crowd the best time possible. They were still laughing about it days later! Thanks Jamie - we would definitely have you again!
  • FOREST AND RURAL FIRE ASSOCIATION OF NEW ZEALAND CONFERENCE (FRFNZ) - ENTERTAINER - AUGUST 2015 "All the feedback I have heard from those at the dinner has been that it was a great night and that Jamie did incredibly well - very much enjoyed, and we were still laughing about a few moments the next day during conference. A couple even mentioned that they didn't think Jamie was up there quite long enough, and were actually hoping he would come back for round two. He did a fantastic job, and we were all impressed by the way read the crowd and picked up on things so quickly."
  • LION HOPT SODA 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY - ENTERTAINER - 2 MARCH 2015 “Jamie was an amazing MC for our event. His quick witted and clever humour added an exciting element to Höpt’s Birthday Party. He instantly had the crowd on side, laughing and enjoying themselves. He understood the brand, audience and was able to adapt accordingly. He was able to make formalities, announcements and thank you’s fun and feel like part of the show. The room was constantly entertained. He even threw in my favourite joke, just because he heard I liked it. Jamie was a breeze to deal with pre, during and post show. His light hearted and easy going nature makes you feel calm and confident about how everything will run. You know someone was good when people come out of their way to tell you the next day how much they enjoyed themselves. A night my guests will remember for a long time. I would have Jamie again in a heartbeat. In fact I’m trying to trying to do just that.” Ryan Christensen - Lion Ambassador
  • TREASURY WINE ESTATES ANNUAL CONFERENCE - ENTERTAINMENT - DEC 2014 "Just wanted to say how great Jamie Bowen and Justine Smith were as entertainers at our annual conference last night. Both comedians were exactly on brief, engaged the audience and provided 40 minutes of very light hearted relief to set the night up. As a pair they were actually very good together – both very different with different angles, and I think this made for a great act, they both seemed to take from each other. Despite given the short notice they both managed to get some understanding of the business and related their act to suit. They were undoubtedly the catalyst for what ended up being a great night, way above our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again." Andrew Lawrence, National Business Manager, Treasury Wine Estates
