  • “We had Doug perform at our Top Customer Appreciation Evening. This was the 2nd time I’ve seen Doug entertain and once again I laughed through the whole show.

The individuals who Doug involved in the show had a blast and we never had to worry about any of the content offending our customers. I’d highly recommend Doug Arden to entertain at your next customer function.” T. Wiens – Bayer CropScience
  • “On behalf of the Saskatchewan Association of Conservation Officers, I would like to thank you for your outstanding performance at our convention banquet. Everyone said they really enjoyed the show and were still talking about it for days after.”
  • “We were also extremely happy that we decided to have you stay to perform a second show at our ladies event and get a taste of the amazing comedy and magic you perform with a small audience, such as in your strolling show. I would suggest that no banquet show would be complete without a strolling show before or after, as it adds so much to the total experience, and is so different with magic happening in people’s hands! ”
