Grey Cup Festival
It was an absolute privilege to work with Brent Butt for an entire weekend during the 101st Grey Cup Festival. Our success was as important to him as it was to us—a true professional.
We can always count on Brent to deliver a hilarious and engaging performance for our many corporate and charitable events.
Please pass on to Mr. Butt our sincerest thanks for this excellent job at our 100th Anniversary celebrations last weekend. Many, many people have expressed to me how perfectly his routine and humour complemented the nature and tone of our centennial. People were thoroughly entertained and appreciated that his act was hysterical without resorting to profanity and inappropriateness. He is a natural and talented comic. Mr. Butt really did a fine job and we'd like him to know that.
