Here’s what Event Host à la The Greatest Showman – Desmond O’Connor’s clients said:

“Supremely talented…dark, hilarious and really rather strange”
Time Out

“Next to the masterful Des everything else pales into mediocrity.”
Alix Fox – Bizarre Magazine

“Endlessly enjoyable…the elegant Des’s repertoire is chock-a-block with songs so lyrically witty they could have been penned by the master himself. But for all his talent, Noel Coward only dreamed of singing as mellifluously.”
The Scotsman – by Lee Randall * * * *

“Desmond O’Connor commands events with a silver-tongued and precise delivery…high quality cabaret, glitter and sophistication.”
Musical Theatre Matters

“Des O’Connor is disarmingly sweet and courteous…Gifted with deadly ukulele skills and the ability to twist the finest rhymes around sweet melodies, O’Connor can touch the most delicate subjects and find the laughter, without cruelty.”
The Skinny – Gareth K Vile
