 “Des was a fantastic MC for our national awards night. A consummate professional, easy to work with and the audience loved him. What more can you ask for? Would book him again in a trice.” - Sarah Hood, Australian Music Association

“Des Dowling MC’d the Australian Workers’ Union Annual Gala Ball. This is a huge event for around 1300 guests at Crown Casino’s prestigious Palladium room. Guest speakers included former Prime Minister Bob Hawke and opposition leader Kim Beazley. Des did a fantastic job and had the crowd in stitches from the start of the night. He even prepared a special comic slide presentation which set the tone for the evening. I would recommend Des for this or any other kind of event in the future.”
