I provide 'walkabout entertainment' - mixing & mingling during drinks or winding my way around dining tables, however sometimes it works better to be stationary, with guests coming to sit for me in singles, couples and groups. I adapt, and any setting where I'm given the opportunity to do entertaining caricatures and foster a good atmosphere will do the trick.

Soon after I was briefed to dress as a "hip bohemian Belgian east London caricature artist" (so it was back on with the Shoreditch garçon gear) for a TV ad where I was on top of a double-decker bus sketching a hyperactive Paul Gascoigne (Gazza) whilst ad-libbing predictions on World Cup football results (?!) in a 'Belgian' (French ha) accent.

You might know the TV show "Escape to the Château" - it's been on Channel 4 for years. I got hired to sketch at a lovely wedding held at the eponymous bijou castle of the genial Dick Strawbridge (below) and enchanting Angel Adorée in northwest France, and got the okay to kit myself out in my ensemble ouvrier chic (snappy french worker outfit).

Party entertainment in the City of London

Party, wedding & corporate event entertainment hire has obviously been hugely affected by the bug, but I can still sketch.

Guests gets in on the act as the plucky subjects and spectators of/comical commentators on the emerging likenesses, and in no time flat they're holding souvenirs of the event that are unique to them in that moment - which can then be used as dartboards.

Staggeringly, over 23 years I've been hired to supply entertainment at thousands of weddings, corporate events and parties, many near me in central London, but also UK-wide & even abroad. "Have pens will travel" - I'm no stranger to county-to-county staggering.

Guests enjoy delivering their 'verdicts' on my party caricatures (I don't mind! *he says*), and politely congratulate each other when they've come out well - yet they also have fun affectionately ribbing one-another over each other's unique peculiarities - which miraculously somehow brings them that much closer together.
