Mike Osman is one of the most respected after dinner performers in Britain with his comedy impressions, stories and auction skills second to none.
And yet, for many years it was a part time indulgence as he built his reputation on the Capital Gold Breakfast Show, building his audience to a staggering 1,700,000 listeners.
In that time he achieved three New York World Radio Awards, the Promax Gold Award and the CRCA Newcomer Award, and numerous sell-out concert tours.
But now he's back full-time on the circuit and this can only be good news as the former star of ITV's Copycats concentrates purely on his after dinner skills. It will enable him to tailor every speech to every individual occasion.
He is also in increasing demand to host conferences in the style of well known presenters. A recent engagement saw the client, Fujitsu Seimens, get 6 people for the price of one, as Mike took on Michael Parkinson, Trevor McDonald, Jeremy Paxman, Des Lynam and Chris Tarrant to ensure a conference to remember!
"Mike did a good job, the room was certainly with him. This was our first time trying the comedian sharing in the awards and it worked. Our thanks to Mike, he did a good job." Cast Metals Federation Annual Awards Dinner - November 2012
"I just thought I would let you know how much the guests at our Annual Dinner last night enjoyed Mike. He really went down well and I have heard only positive comments, including the 'best ever'...We would certainly recommend Mike to others." Mike spoke at the BSSA Annual dinner - October 2009
"...sounded more like Chris Tarrant, than Chris Tarrant does! A remarkably hard working and funny man." BAPC
