I recommended him at this Monday's showcase publicly in the delegates meeting and also informed my agent and I have booked him in for us on the 26th Dec Boxing day night. Please would you be so kind ...as to pass my apologies onto Gaz for not being able to be their personally to meet him the other sat and also the wonderful comments he has had.
