Dear Basil / Ed
We can not thank you enough for the laughter & chaos your antics caused on our wedding day. The unexpected games & ensuing hilarity created a wedding day that was truly joyous and fun. One particular guest had only just arrived, and, knowing no-one else but us, found herself dancing around the room with a tray of drinks & imitating Manuel. Was she drunk? No! She had been spotted by Basil! It was certainly an ice-breaker & and she got to know a few people very quickly!

From the intimate ceremony, to giggles & guffaws through afternoon tea, to hysterical shrieking as the evening closed in - you took our guests on an emotional roller-coaster ride. A wedding to remember and for that we are grateful to you.

Auntie Bettie still hasn't recovered from needing to be hauled out of her seat through laughing so hard. Our only regret was not having it videoed. I have enclosed for you one of the official photos in which you were included. It gave a special touch to the day having a host everyone already knew and with our chaotic lives (The DJ was confirmed during afternoon tea) it was only right that Basil should host our day. You have given us and our guests some treasured memories~ although Charlie is too young to remember, I think he appreciated the taxi ride~ (Assistance given on a plastic taxi buggy) We hope you enjoyed yourself too.

We wish you all the best in future "hosting" & adventures. Should our paths cross again we'll be sure to come & say hello - from a safe distance.

Once again, thank you. The Siberian hamster leaping onto Auntie Bettie is a wonderful story to tell our future children.You gave us so much more than Basil.

All the best for the future
With thanks
Glen & Beth
Wedding: Mr & Mrs Brady, Caernarvon , North Wales

Hi Ed...just a quick note to say very many thanks for last night's performance. 'Basil' took the place by storm and was a big hit with everyone.

Your opening fracas in the kitchen was spot-on, and really took people by surprise, judging from the looks on their faces. The audience participation bit was excellent too - and unearthed a couple of budding Manuels, it seems!

Thanks too, for posing for the many photo opportunities - seems that just about everyone wanted their picture taken with 'Mr Fawlty' (me included!) And for sticking around to mingle with the audience in-character: it must be quite an energy-draining experience being 'someone else' for hours at a time!

All-in-all, a really successful night, with 'Basil' being the proverbial icing on the cake!

Thanks again...and I'll certainly spread the word to my friends and colleagues.

Jill, Director of Upfront Communications Ltd

We are in your debt - it was brilliant and you put a lot into it for us. We couldn't have imagined the whole weekend would go so well. Thank you very much. Hope you enjoyed yourself!
