Testimonials from Corporates, Schools and Clubs
“What an amazing night we had with the entertainment provided by Gerard V. We started the night with sceptics, but ended with believers and sore cheeks from laughing so much. Gerard was professional in his delivery of the show and ensured that our guests were safe and entertained. Our sincere thanks for making the night one to remember – our guests are still talking about it today.” (2 months later)

“We had an amazing night at our company’s National Sales Conference with Gerard V’s comedy hypnosis performance. It was hilarious to watch so many people get involved that wouldn’t normally put their hands up and volunteer. It surprised us all!
It was a fabulous night and left us with many funny stories to discuss for the remainder of our conference. We would definitely recommend Gerard V to anyone looking to provide corporate appropriate and hilarious entertainment."
Cassie Grmusa - Clevertronics
"The Tasmania Chapter of Harley Owners Group (HOG) had Gerard V entertain us at our 2017 State Rally in front of 230 guests. Gerard was awesome keeping all involved those on stage and off. The show flowed beautifully and was good clean family orientated comedy. Gerard V was professional and very easy to work with touching base a couple of times leading up to the event giving me confidence that all was going to go well. Gerard V also worked in with other entertainment In a very professional manner and gave us the flexibility to do what we needed to also as we were running late with our programme of events. Thank you Gerard V we appreciate your professionalism and your show was awesome also, we had a lot of very positive feed back from the guests again thank you."

"Thank you Gerard V for an amazing & entertaining show for our staff Xmas party in December. We had an absolute blast & we still have laughs about it. We recommend your services to anyone looking for a good laugh & something a little different!"
Natalie Donders - Club Merrylands
This show was a staff function arranged by the social club and management of Club Merrylands, a bowling club in Merrylands New South Wales. It was a Christmas Party event with staff and some children that took place early afternoon. Thaty way it was easy for people to attend (and afternoon shows are often a bit cheaper too).
"We booked GerardV for our work Christmas party. Gerard was the consummate professional and took confident ownership of the group, thoroughly entertaining us all. We haven’t laughed that hard in ages and the team haven’t stopped talking about it since. The night was a huge success and our sincere thanks to GerardV and his team for giving us all a very unique and memorable experience."
Roslyn Hunter - Ordyss Aspire
(This was my first time to visit Orange NSW, and neighbouring towns. It was a fun road trip.)
PJL booked this as a Corporate Christmas Party Show for their staff from around the country. It was a great night and I enjoyed myself as did everyone else.
"Thanks for an awesome performance on Saturday Night. Everyone had a fantastic night and we are all extremely happy that we witnessed your fabulous work. There has been some outstanding feedback about your show so you should be very proud."
Manika Clayton - St Mary's School, Melbourne
"Lifestyle Warragul had the pleasure of the Gerard V Comedy Hypnotist show at our recent Seniors Week function. Our homeowners were initially sceptical but after the show we had many tell us that it is one of the best functions/show that we have had to date, and we have had many. Gerard is very professional and the show is good clean fun, full of belly laughs for all with no one being embarrassed later. We can highly recommend that you give this Comedy Hypnotist show a try."
Jenny Smith - Manager Lifestyle Village Community

Audience members said they hadn't laughed so hard in a long time. We would love to see Gerard back again one day. Highly recommended - a fantastic night out and a great fundraiser idea. Thanks Gerard."

What an amazing night. Gerard is very good at what he does. Never seen so many go under.
Samantha Allen - Rye Junior Football Club
Wow, what a treat. The third show for our small rural town. Our latest show would have to be the best one. Great turn out for this event and reviews have been amazing, as follows:
- My cheeks are so sore from laughing!
- Gerard’s gentleness and sensitivity with a shy volunteer shows a deep respect for participants.
- “He didn’t embarrass anyone” people were free to be themselves
- When is the next show, I don’t want to miss it?
- I did not expect to have such a wonderful time and to laugh so much
- I did not realise my partner could actually sing like that! Amazing
- You don’t have to be on the stage to get hypnotised
It is an absolute pleasure to recommend this show and we look forward to many more hilarious shows in the future.
Fiona Frew - Karaka Learning Centre
We enjoyed the performance of Gerard V on Friday night and I wanted to express my pleasure about how the show went.
I had been recommended Gerard's performance but hadn't seen him myself before our night. It was a different type of performance for us from what we had experienced in the past and therefore a slight risk.
My trepidation was unwarranted as the show was outstanding and exceeded my expectations. Gerard was able to engage and hold our team for the entirety of the show.
The feedback afterwards was all so positive and I am still hearing positive comments now a few days after.
It can sometimes be a risk with something different but using Gerard was no risk at all it turns out. I highly recommend him and his show.

Gerard was engaged for our annual awards night. We were unsure what we would be getting for the price initially but decided to take a chance.
As it turns out I cannot recommend Gerard highly enough, not just the show itself, but his professionalism and effort throughout from the first email contact, set up on the night and the show. Gerard arrived early, was so thorough in his set up, lighting, sound, everything was covered, he was lovely to deal with, interacted beautifully with our people and was committed to ensuring our event ran well.
The actual show was another thing entirely, to see our people up there under his command was amazing. The show remained funny, entertaining and most of all engaging and non offensive to everyone in the room, whether you were on stage or in the audience you had a great time. We run and attend events many times each year and I can confidently say Gerard was stand out among all that we see!
Jodie Hanssen - Ray White Cranbourne
Gerard thanks for a great night filled with lots of laughs. Your show is highly recommended to entertain a range of age groups and as we witnessed a show for families to enjoy.
Deanne Armstrong - Cobram Football Netball Club
On behalf of the Culburra Cougars Football Club we'd just like to say a huge thanks for coming to our fundraising event! The community have not stopped talking about how funny the night was. By far one of our most successful fundraisers in terms of attracting as many people as possible and getting everyone involved on the night. Thanks again for a great night and I'm sure we will be seeing you again! Highly recommended!!
Overall, very successful in terms of fundraising for us. It was a great night.
Amy Loveday - Culburra Cougars Soccer Club
We have had so much wonderful feedback from all our guests that were at our Club fundraiser last Sunday.
We were very privileged to have you and your crew entertain us and our 200 guests. Our 20+ volunteers who went up on stage are still buzzing and they were so happy they seized the opportunity to allow them selves to be hypnotised for the 1st time. They absolutely loved it!
The show was super funny and well thought out! The lights and music tied everything all together perfectly.
You are truly amazing at what you do Gerard and we highly recommend you to all our friends & family.
Thank you for all your time & energy and your humorous personality!
Karen Kiri - Porirua Netball Club

Gerard V's hypnotist show proved to be a huge success to a packed house at the Orbost Snowy Rivers Football Netball Club. Gerard was an amazing entertainer who had the crowd in stitches from start to end. The show entertained everyone from young children, teenagers to adults. Would highly recommend booking Gerard for a fun filled night. Gerard was easy to deal with in planning the show making it a successful easy function for our club.
Megan Humphreys - Orbost Snowy Rovers Football Netball Club
I just wanted to say a big Thank you for attending the Peninsula Old Boys Football Club’s Hypnotist evening. Everyone had an awesome night. You kept us all very entertained and we will definitely be recommending you to other clubs.
The night was suitable for all ages, extremely entertaining and very much appreciated by all who attended. Many Thanks.
Natalie Pullen - Vice President - Peninsula Old Boys Football Club
Just a short note of thanks for putting on a great show at the Heritage Hotel last evening. Everything was so well organised and ran so smoothly and the local crowd enjoyed a really top nights entertainment. On behalf of the Hanmer Springs Golf Club, thanks again on your performance, it was great!
Greg Samson - Hanmer Springs Golf Club
Gerard V was highly entertaining when he visited our Football Club in late April, 2017. He had the crowd fixated on the volunteers on stage for his hypnosis show and he certainly had the crowd in raptures. For over 2 hours, the crowd were on their feet watching intently on what the volunteers would have to do next. Gerard V performs a g rated show, that's certainly well worth the time to see.
Simon Bevan - Pakenham Football Netball Club
Thanks for for a great night, everyone was smiling and laughing all night. Some non-believers now believe. Great to see everyone out of their seats enjoying the show and not wanting to miss anything. Absolutely great entertainment and will be definitely recommending to friends.
Scott McDonald - Eastern Park Bowls Club
Thank you for coming and doing your show at the Swanny Pub. It was a great night. Full of fun and entertainment. We are constantly getting people telling us how much fun they had and that they have never laughed so much or had such a great night out. Job well done!
Graham & Cheryl Watson - Swan Reach Hotel
Amazing fun on the Gippsland Coast. "Thank you for a wonderful evening of laughter. It was amazing."
Had a great night; I got hypnotized!
"Gerard V's show is unbelievable but then you see it all unfold with your own eyes (that is if you're the unlucky ones remaining in the audience - make sure you get involved!). He is a truly talented genius of his trade and puts on an extraordinary and laugh out loud spectacle. This was his first time performing at a University in NZ, yet it might as well of been his hundredth - he works with you to make the event 10/10, ever the professional, cool under pressure and a hell of an entertainer. Finds his audience quickly and keeps them fascinated and in hysterics throughout. Those in the audience wish they had volunteered and those who participated loved every minute and boy did they sleep well that evening! Thank you Gerard, completely worth it and we hope to have you back every year!"
"Thanks mate! Hope the exec brings you back next year, had nothing but positive reviews and even a number of people disappointed they didn't attend (wishing they had)."
Miles Denton - Auckland University Pharmacy Students' Association
"Thank you for putting on such a professional and funny show, we have utilised your services over a number of years now, the professionalism shown and commitment to deliver an outstanding commercial hypnotist show for our key clients is simple wonderful. The feedback we have received over the years has been extremely positive from everyone whom have attended the shows. We look forward to working with you in the future."
Ross Morley - National Sales Manager Avis Budget Group
I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard.
Gerard is a very funny man.
"If I was to summarise your show in one word, It would be MAGNIFICENT.
I have received numerous positive feedback even from those least expected. Throughout the whole show the audience were laughing and enjoying themselves. Exactly what the club needed leading up to the finals after a stressful year.
Your setup was great, you showed professionalism and most important you seem like a great person.
CFC will be definitely asking you back next year."
"Thank you so much for coming Gerard! Everyone had an amazing time and you were very friendly, funny, and entertaining!"
Miles Denton - Auckland University (APSA)
"Thank you Gerard for coming all the way to Wellsford to help us fundraise for our local school which we did end up raising a nice amount to go into our educational fund. Your show was very entertaining and everyone loved it. we have people asking us when the next show will be, Thank you!"
Milo Walstra - Wellsford School
"Gerard V performed at our Hotel to a sell-out crowd and absolutely everyone had a fantastic night. The show was comical genius, the production side of things was 100% taken care of and weeks later our customers are still talking about the hilarious antics of the evening. Gerard is a true professional, an entertainer that I would highly recommend to anyone."
