“That was fantastic. You’re a very funny man. Your experience shines out and your wit! Well done.”
David Walliams

“Sincere thanks from us all, for your performance on Saturday at Luke and Sammi’s wedding. You absolutely killed it! Everybody was talking about you at breakfast the following morning. Thank you for coming into our lives and bringing such a moment of joy!”
Carl & Julie

“Jimmy Tamley, billed as one of the funniest ventriloquists around. So often acts rely on the cuddly nature of their props and forget about their material, not so here. He quickly built a great rapport between the members of his ‘family’ and the audience and the comedy is of a high standard throughout. His last character – ‘underweight’ boxer Lightning Les – is a classic.”
