“I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic performance Ben, or should I say Tom Cruise, John Howard, even Arnie!!! You truly are an amazing impersonator - the feedback we received after your performance was overwhelming to say the least: brilliant, hilarious - book him again. Ben, keep up the great performance and truly hope to engage your services again.”

Fairfax Community Newspapers
”Absolutely sensational! Everyone had a fabulous evening and would recommend Ben for any event if they are looking for the ‘Wow’ factor.”
”Ben has an amazing ability to capture the essence of a character; how a person looks, talks, walks and feels. He could probably even reproduce how they smell, but that would probably cost extra. Ben doesn’t just impersonate someone, he inhabits them.”

”...we've found a replacement for the Channel 9 sports department...Ben can do them all!”
