Just read what people are saying about Geoff’s performances:
I had the pleasure of being in the audience for a performance by Geoff Mackay, and I can attest that his material and delivery are both topical and more importantly funny! I’ve been through a few dinners with comedians who just weren’t that funny. Geoff is a rare exception!
-Jim Watson, Mayor, City of Ottawa
Geoff did an outstanding job entertaining the crowd of nearly 1000 by performing stand-up comedy in both french and english and by leading our improv teams. This event also featured a special message and presentation by Rick Mercer. I would heartily recommend Geoff for any event or performance as he exhibited extreme professionalism throughout the planning and presentation of the event, and he stuck to our need for clean professional comedy for the family oriented crowd.
-John Helmkay, Producer Cracking-up the Capital Comedy Festival
Geoff is a great comedian. The show he presented went beyond our expectations. His material was relevant and personal enough that we were able to establish a real connection to him immediately. He had us in stitches during the entire show and I simply did not want it to end.
-Diane Cyr, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
Geoff was a fantastic addition to our fundraising comedy event, Comic Vision Last Call. His smart and hilarious humor was met with great appreciation and very large laughs. It was a sincere pleasure working with Geoff and I would again without question.
-Susan Techner, Comic Vision (The Foundation Fighting Blindness)
We had Geoff (via Absolute Comedy) out for our annual 'Laughatorium' event for EngFrosh this year. We had an audience of over 300 people who thoroughly enjoyed the show. Geoff was the MC for the evening and was both professional and punctual. Geoff arrived early to help setup the spotlight and speakers that he brought, and they worked perfectly. He kept his act within the content guidelines that were previously set out. I had a positive experience with this booking. Thanks!
-Lucas Brewster, Carleton University EngFrosh Logistics Coordinator
Engaging! Great hair! We enjoyed Geoff’s unique brand of humour. He didn’t just tell dumb one-liners, but put together some memorable, funny stories. He was age-appropriate for our senior management, and he made our 300-strong gang laugh.
-Douglas Yeo, Canadian Institute for Health Information -Ottawa Social Committee
Geoff MacKay is professional and funny! His set included both improvised and premeditated jokes. Jokes came naturally and unscripted. A professional demeanor, well groomed, and smiling…Geoff was on-track, on-time and within budget—delivered exceptional quality.
-Mark E. Geres, Canada Border Services Agency
Geoff has a way of making everyday real life stories into hilarious and boisterous knee sleeping therapy. I truly recommend that you need to make an appointment with Geoff, your employees will surely benefit from his therapy.
