Superb! A total pro and a thoroughly nice chap!
One of television's quickest wits.
A comedian who makes you feel glad to be alive.
Excellent - judged the audience well; delivery was outstanding; material was spot-on. It's not easy to make a room full of accountants laugh!
Dominci spent a lot of time going over the script and asking questions to ensure he had the right information. He also tailored his 'stand up' bit for the audience to be totally relevant to them
He was great - managed to get a great reception despite obvious limitations to what he would say. Just one thiing - he should have met me where we arranged to meet & not gone direct to venue
