Greg's repertoire includes;

Hoax Presentation - After Dinner Speaker

 30-40 minute Keynote presentation as a German professional from your equivalent industry. Starting with the character running late with a sorry tale of security issues, late flights, baggage loss and confused taxi drivers, the presentation is tailored to the client including relevant industry information.  Great fun, and can touch on actual industry issues in a humourous way.

Off the Cuff - Musical Comedy Show

 40-45 minute after-dinner show of music, opera, comedy, audience interaction, improvised made-up-on-the-spot songs and specially-written songs for the client.  This is Greg's most-booked show.

Ideally combined with an MC role, this can be presented in two parts - an early 15-minute or so piece between entree and main, and a 30-ish minute after-dinner piece, or a single after dinner show of around 45 mins.

 One Night Only

 A similar show to Off the Cuff, but more of a focus on the musical side of Greg's career, including musical theatre pieces, opera etc.  Can be enhanced with a visual presentation as part of the performance.
