“You know, you really do look like me.” Quote from John Cleese, the “Grand Fromage” himself!

“Just a short note on behalf of the Agents Association North West Branch to thank you very much indeed for “Basil Fawltys” contribution at our annual Variety Show held at the Willows Variety Centre, Manchester. The evening was a huge success and thanks to the efforts of people like yourself, we managed to raise a considerable sum on the night for a wonderful Childrens Charity “Wish upon a Star”.
Barrie Lucas, Executive Producer

“That was brilliant John, can I have your autograph please? When are you going to do another series”
Accoutants Christmas Party in Oslo

“Just a quick note to say very many thanks for last night’s performance. ‘Basil’ took the place by storm and was a big hit with everyone. Your opening fracas in the kitchen was spot-on, and really took people by surprise, judging from the looks on their faces. The audience participation bit was excellent too – and unearthed a couple of budding Manuels, it seems! Thanks too, for posing for the many photo opportunities – seems that just about everyone wanted their picture taken with ‘Mr Fawlty’ (me included!) And for sticking around to mingle with the audience in-character: it must be quite an energy-draining experience being ‘someone else’ for hours at a time!

All-in-all, a really successful night, with ‘Basil’ being the proverbial icing on the cake! Thanks again…and I’ll certainly spread the word to my friends and colleagues.”

“It was magic– and what a pleasure working with you! Thank you for everything, Warmest regards
Madelaine Black”
Barmitzvah – North London Synagogue

“On the behalf of the Social Committee, we were delighted by Basil and Sybil Fawlty at our company Christmas party this year. Not only were some of their mannerisms uncanny in their accuracy, but their presence lent a huge sense of fun to the evening from the word go. Their flexibility in tailoring their material to the occasion and to our company was really appreciated – top entertainment all round!’
SHL Staff Recruitment

“We can not thank you enough for the laughter & chaos your antics caused on our wedding day. The unexpected games & ensuing hilarity created a wedding day that was truly joyous and fun. One particular guest had only just arrived, and, knowing no-one else but us, found herself dancing around the room with a tray of drinks & imitating Manuel. Was she drunk? No! She had been spotted by Basil! It was certainly an ice-breaker & and she got to know a few people very quickly!

From the intimate ceremony, to giggles & guffaws through afternoon tea, to hysterical shrieking as the evening closed in – you took our guests on an emotional roller-coaster ride. A wedding to remember and for that we are grateful to you. Auntie Bettie still hasn’t recovered from needing to be hauled out of her seat through laughing so hard. Our only regret was not having it videoed. I have enclosed for you one of the official photos in which you were included. It gave a special touch to the day having a host everyone already knew and with our chaotic lives (The DJ was confirmed during afternoon tea) it was only right that Basil should host our day. You have given us and our guests some treasured memories~ although Charlie is too young to remember, I think he appreciated the taxi ride ~ (Assistance given on a plastic taxi buggy) We hope you enjoyed yourself too.

We wish you all the best in future “hosting” & adventures. Should our paths cross again we’ll be sure to come & say hello – from a safe distance.
Once again, thank you. The Siberian hamster leaping onto Auntie Bettie is a wonderful story to tell our future children.You gave us so much more than Basil. With thanks”
Glen & Beth Wedding: Mr & Mrs Brady
