"Well you've done it again Peter!!! ... You and your crew never cease to amaze me. Everyone was so easy to work with and professional. This is our 3rd event with BigTime as a major part of the activities, and as always... a resounding hit!! The feedback from our group of 170 for the Idol Show was outstanding.
At first people were afraid their names would be called to participate, but by the end of the show, these same people were disappointed in not being called up. When I first pitched your idea of the show to some of our other committee members, many were hesitant. They wanted to make sure no one would be ridiculed 'performing' for an 'Idol Show'. After the show I went to see the head committee member, his response elated me... 'It was PERFECT, just PERFECT'"

"What a tremendous job you did for the NHL 2000 event! Of course, it's no less than we expected from BigTime Murder Productions. From the minute we phoned you with our very special request, until the final moments of your excellent production, everything went smoothly and enjoyably. And no small task either! For you to custom-create a radio play with a hockey theme, and then to stage it in such a unique and challenging setting as a cocktail party for 5,000 people, was a true testament to the skills of your company, your writers, and your performers. Our clients, Showmakers Inc., and the NHL VIPs who attended, commented on the talents of those on stage and on the professionalism of the concept and scripting. It's a pleasure to work with someone as inspired, as passionate and as consummately professional as you are. We look forward to our next intriguing project."

"This was the first time I had ever attended a murder mystery, but I know it won't be the last. Everyone at our mystery masquerade had a great time. I heard over and over how much they all enjoyed the production put on by your Toronto cast.
I would highly recommend BigTime Murder Productions to anyone thinking of hosting an entertaining and fun filled evening. You were a joy to work with. With all the details for the evening to worry about I did not have to be concerned about the entertainment. You were a professional, organized and very accommodating. My compliments on a job well done."

"When I was looking for a company to perform for our district, several were available and I was discussing items with them. However, your professionalism and excellent customer service was above all others. I had hoped to see an evening of fun and laughs, and you delivered with gut-busting style. The show really set the stage for the next day and everyone was that much more relaxed for our following work program. Your show made the conference a huge success. The improvisation, the jokes, the script, and the interaction was very energetic and entertaining and electrifying. Outstanding!"
- Dan G.

The way that you included specific staff members in your script was handled very well and everyone laughed a lot. We were also impressed with your organization and professionalism, and with how you went out of you way to accommodate us... We certainly will be happy to recommend BigTime to any interested parties."
- Chuck G.

"I just wanted to let you know how pleased everyone was with the performance last Friday night. Even the restaurant was delighted with the results and the cast had patrons and staff in 'stitches.' Cudos to the French/Italian maid who gave the dental hygienists a new way to dispense dental floss! A special thank you to you as well, for coming through on very short notice and bending the rules."
- Frances P.

- Mary Ellen N.

"Thank you so much for your delightful entertainment during our client familiarization at Chateau Laurier Hotel. Our guests enjoyed your humor and so did we!

"Bigtime is truly exceptional, and our event has sold out both years. I have worked with a few smaller murder mystery groups, but they don't have the professional edge or flare that BigTime does. Book them soon, you won't be sorry!"
- Christina T.
Carthage Area Hospital Foundation
"WOW! What can I say? You were not exaggerating when you told me we would have an evening of live, hilarious entertainment!.. I have heard nothing but extremely positive comments about the show. One of our doctors commented that he had been to several murder mystery dinners, but this one was by far the best he and his wife had ever attended. I think that says it all! I look forward to next year's event."
- Christina T.
Carthage Area Hospital Foundation
"I received many positive comments from our management group on your outstanding performance which made the evening one to remember."
- W.L. M.
"I would like to take this opportunity to express to both Bigtime as well as Jamie and Gabrielle our many thanks for the absolutely wonderful time that all the members of our training team had. There were many comments that this was our best team event ever. The actors were funny, quick, flexible and even brought the reluctant completely out of their shells. I cannot thank you all enough."
- Edward C.
"It was a great success, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. I think the consensus was that the party was the best Christmas party the company has ever had. I personally received many kudos for my organizational genius in getting the whole thing off the ground: of course, I didn't want to confess that all I had to do was make four or five phone calls and then leave the planning to the experts! That, for me, was one of the nicest things about the production: I do appreciate very much your professionalism and expertise in setting up the whole thing with the minimum of effort and complete absence of headaches on my part, so that as an organizer I was no less able to enjoy the event than anyone else..."

- Shannon W.

"I am not sure that words will be able to express what a huge success the murder mystery was on Friday evening. Your cast were exceptional both in role and out of role. From the moment they entered the hall they captivated our audience and the audience were surrounding them to see what was going on. Officer Cannon had quite the presence as he all of a sudden appeared on the scene so much so that a couple of individuals wondered what was wrong. What was a very stressful week made even the naysayers laugh to tears. You are definitely on my list for another show."
- Carol J.
Comcare Health Services
"I know I thanked you and your crew already that night, but I had to write you to thank you once again for the amazing performance BigTime put on for us. The next day, every person who was at the party said that by far it was the greatest Christmas party they had ever been to. I couldn't agree more! From start to finish everyone was laughing hysterically, singing and dancing (albeit sometimes reluctantly). People were amazed that all we had to do was look in the yellow pages to find a gem like BigTime; that is what I call 'a diamond in the rough.' "

"On behalf of all the employees of International Datacasting, we would like to express to you our overwhelming satisfaction with your exceptionally entertaining production of 'Silence of the Hams' at our annual Holiday party on November 26th. We were looking for something extra-special for this year's party to help us celebrate our company's 20th Anniversary. We sure found it!
The actors were amazing, and kept us all in stitches during the whole performance. Their ability to incorporate employees into the performance was just perfect. It definitely added that personal touch and made for a very special evening. The feedback from our employees has been fabulous. Comments like 'That was the best party we've ever had', and 'Let's do it again next year!', have been widespread. It was a wonderful way to celebrate 20 years in business! Our compliments and thanks to you and your cast and crew for a performance that was just as you say on your website, 'Entertainment To Die For!'"
- Heather M & Jane W

Thank you Peter and please thank your crew for us because year after year they have proven to be the best and I have no doubt that we will see you again next year (for show #5) when we celebrate our 47th Charter Night."
- Gisele V.

"We had a great time also, the actors were great. They never dropped out of character the whole evening, which was amazing. We tried at times to catch them off guard but they were truly professional and kept in character which made the situation that much more real. We thanked them that evening but please pass on our compliments again.
Everyone had a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Thanks again to you and the group for making our event special."
- Anthony H.

"We had a great time and plenty of laughs. We have more hams in the group than we realized. We talked about the event for a couple of days afterwards. This was my first murder mystery and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My team leader (from North Carolina) said she will never forget it and thought it was a great team building event. Many Thanks!"
- Beulah M.
"To date, the comments received with respect to the entertainment provided are great! I appreciate the time you took to respond to any concerns that the committee had.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your cast for a top rated performance. The Ottawa Technology Centre's Management Group enjoyed every segment of your show.
Hari-Karaoke is an excellent show, which allows for a lot of interaction and involvement between the cast and the audience. The group particularly enjoyed how you incorporated our people into your program. It was a great time seeing our colleagues contribute to your line up; and it become an extraordinary moment for those participants who were more than happy to perform with you. We could not resist jumping up and dancing to your great choice of music. The standing ovation was proof that your cast left our group in awe. Our Post Conference Surveys indicated that many individuals preferred your entertainment to other activities and events planned during past conferences."

"The feedback has been very positive, everyone enjoyed the laughs and jokes flying around the room. Your crew did an excellent job with the whole waterslide theme. I do appreciate you accommodating the last minute changes we had, and of course the storm delay. I will be recommending BigTime Murder Productions to everyone."
- Tanis B.
"Over the years I have done many different client appreciation events but the Murder Mystery dinner was by far the most entertaining evening we have ever provided. My clients thoroughly enjoyed the show and it was an absolute delight to work with such a professional and well-organized company. If you ever need a reference I would be pleased to provide one."
- Brian N.
"Based on the number of complimentary calls that I received following your performance, I can assure that your production exceeded our most optimistic expectations. The manner in which you incorporated the members of your audience, and in this case, some of the most senior police executives in Canada, continues to provide much amusement for those fortunate enough to have attended this event. I should also advise you that your performance at our dinner was the best attended event that our Officers' mess has hosted in 10 years... Your performance was professional, entertaining and wildly amusing... I would be pleased to recommend you to anyone wishing to enjoy an unusual and thoroughly entertaining evening."
- Inspector Greg J.
RCMP Ottawa Area Officers' Mess.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Peter and the BigTime IDOL troupe on two events in the last 6 months. Each event was a different audience and held at a different venue (JW Marriott Hotel and Resort, Muskoka; St John’s NF Delta Hotel and Conventions Centre) and each had a very different vibe.
From the beginning of the process until the last light was out it was a joy working with the BigTime Team. The troupe performed well beyond my expectations and because of the extensive customization that is done pre-event it felt like they were our personal valet. The show outline and how to have our group experience the best most enhanced show ever was accomplished through all the ways they pitched in with suggestions and assistance from beginning to end. It was amazing to watch how they changed their style for each event and please the delegates involved in the show as well as the delegates watching the show.
I would recommend BigTime to anyone interested in hiring an entertainment group to bring a different fun aspect to their events!"

"Once again, thanks for putting on a great show at the Riveredge Resort Hotel. The applause gets louder after every show you do.
As you know, our return clientele is a large part of our business. BigTime has always succeeded in putting on a fresh professional production so our guests were always left guessing whodunnit.
BigTime has accommodated our serving schedules smoothly; your liaison made much easier my job to ensure everyone receive an enjoyable meal and your job to ensure everyone receive a hilarious show.
"We appreciate the link to our web page; we hope it will gain us new clientele to host at our resort and new audiences for you to entertain. It has been my pleasure to do business with you and your cast. Keep up the great work and keep on knocking 'em dead."
- Chris S.

"I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thanks for making our Volunteer Party such a success. You and your cast were awesome. Being the person who coordinates the event, you always worry if there is someone not enjoying him or herself. I can honestly say at no point during the evening did I worry. Everyone had an amazing time and the feedback from the staff and volunteers has been nothing but positive! I would recommend this to anyone who was looking to have a great night. I look forward to working with you again!"
- Pamela M.
"I just wanted to drop a quick note on the great job your BigTime Murder Productions troup did for our Broker Professional Development dinner last month. The actors were very engaging and stayed in character for the whole evening. Our entire group quickly got into the spirit of the event and had a fantastic time.
In the past we have hosted dinners, casino nights, golf trips, pub nights, etc., which can always be challenging given the diversity of ages and interests in our clients. We were delighted with how well your production was received by everyone in our group. The whole evening was wonderfully entertaining and your team helped make our event that much more memorable."
- Mike K.
Royal Sun Alliance
"Everyone had an excellent time and thought you were all just fantastic! I like the way you used the information that I provided for your 'victims'. They loved it! On return to work on Monday your group's performance was all anyone talked about. You were really a hit and we thank you."
- Ingrid K.
"Just a note to thank you very much for the best murder mystery corporate party I have ever been to. You really got all of us involved in this and we all had a great time. All the actors and actress were great fun and great conversationalists at the tables. You have a great show going here. Keep up the great work."
- Dave A.
"Each and every guest stopped to comment on how much fun they had during your production. One of hardest parts of planning our dealer convention was trying to come up with an original idea for entertaining our guests. Of all the forms of entertainment that we could've chosen, bringing BigTime in was certainly the best choice. Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine that the caliber of you performers would be so incredible. Once again, thank you for helping me make this convention the success that it was!"
- Darcie C.

"I just want to thank you and your cast for a fantastic evening last Thursday. Everyone had a great time and agreed it was the most fun they have ever had at a company function. The actors were tremendously interactive and did a terrific job of involving the guests. Please pass on my sincere thanks to them for a fun filled evening and hopefully we will be in touch again for a future event."
- Christine G.

"Thank you so much for bringing yourself and your talented troupe of actors to Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello earlier this month to perform for my client. The feedback that I received was excellent and everyone had a great time. It was exactly what they needed after a long day of meetings.
The "Radio Play" was extremely entertaining and had everyone laughing - even some of the actors. It is truly amazing the improvisational "talent" that you can unleash in your audience! The ease with which the actors blended with the audience and drew them into the play was quite impressive. I would not hesitate in suggesting the "Radio Play" to future clients. Laughter and fun was definitely had by all!"
- Margaret D.
"I would like to thank you for the wonderful improv comedy BigTime created for the OP APOLLO show tour. When I contracted you to perform for the Canadian Forces personnel overseas, I never dreamed that your portion of our variety show would be such a smashing success. BigTime provided much needed comic relief for several Army and Navy personnel who have been away from their family and friends for several months. Your interactive improv fit perfectly into the show, and was a huge hit with the CF audience. It really drew them in - especially when you cast the two highest ranking officers on the ship as "Jack" and "Rose" from the Titanic.
Hilarious! On stage and off, the BigTime cast was extremely professional. They were very easy to travel with, a "low maintenance", easy going group who created a fun, team building atmosphere.
I would recommend BigTime Murder Productions to anyone looking for a unique entertainment experience."
- Suzanne K.
"There were many comments, in particular the fact that 'the actors were great', 'everyone was urged to participate', and 'much better event other Murder Mystery groups!'. The guests also appreciated the actors staying around afterwards and talking to them and not running off as soon as the show was over. The entire event was a huge success and we will definitely be calling you next year for repeat performance."

"Many of our employees (and guests) thought it was the best Christmas party Comtest has ever had. Your willingness to cater to our company's needs, and tailoring the script to suit Comtest's corporate profile, really added to the fun of the evening. I will recommend BigTime Murder Productions to anyone I know, looking for a unique and incredibly fun way to spend an evening, or liven up any function."
- Leah B.

"I want to thank you and the many cast members for making our Christmas party a great success! The response has been terrific, and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. From the delectable Sandy Beach (woo-hoo!), sparring partners Chip and Judy through to Officer Dick Cannon, the players were interactive, quick-witted, and really engaging. The theme of a company takeover was a big hit, although I hope no one here at Danfoss gets any ideas.
I would highly recommend your troupe to anyone thinking of a murder mystery for their company or ‘function’. Again, many thanks for putting this together and giving us an evening to remember."
- Randy R.
HR Development Manager
"We would like to extend our thanks to you and your cast for making our murder mystery night such an exceptional and memorable evening. Everyone had an unforgettable time. You were right about our night being unbelievably hilarious!"
- Isabelle M.
"The 'well dones' and 'great ideas' are coming in fast and furious today. Those people who are hams were able to get into the action and those people who are shyer were able to sit back and enjoy the radio play and still be extremely entertained. There wasn't one person who didn't enjoy themselves yesterday!...
Your radio play format is a great concept and really funny departure from the standard murder mystery format. Kudos to your troupe who are obviously very polished and extremely adept at what they do and yet come across as spontaneous and not rehearsed to death. You have a winning formula for tons of fun!"
- Walter D.
DYLEX (Tip Top)
"The word that keeps ringing true to me for that evening was professionalism. Your cast handled our people so well, that we could do nothing but react to their gentle mocking and fully participate in the evening. I am amazed at how well the actors took the little bit of information I gave them, and also what they could glean from their brief conversations prior to dinner, and create a show so hilarious, and right on the mark with our key players.
Once again, I thank you for being so much more than we could ever have anticipated, and for being the high point of our conference."
- Laura C.
"I just wanted to say hello and thank you for a great afternoon this past Friday. Everyone has been thanking me for the success of the day, and I owe a big thank you to Jamie and Gabrielle who carried the show and kept things rolling. There was a lot of laughter and everyone really enjoyed themselves. I have been recommending Big Time to friends and family, and can hardly wait to plan another get together featuring one of Big Time's Murder Mysteries. We would love to be listed as one of your previous clients and will recommend your organization to anyone looking for a unique, fun filled way to Team Build! Thanks to Peter for being so helpful in the beginning and making things so easy to organize."

When our client, Dare Foods of Canada approached us for an after-dinner show filled with laughs and audience participation, BigTime IDOL came to mind right away. What a huge hit it was - the energy in the room and the laughs were over-the-top and proof of what a success the show was so THANK YOU once again.
We wish you the best for all of your upcoming productions. We will be on the look-out for other opportunities to collaborate with you and the entire BigTime cast in the near future. Congratulations for an outstanding job!"

Everyone enjoyed the show. They didn't need to tell me because I could see it in their smiles and hear in their laughter. I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending your company.
Thank you for the great memories on such a special occasion. Please be sure to pass this message on to the cast. Congratulation on a job well done and good luck with your future endeavours."

The evening was a mixture of unparalleled hilarity and artistic creativity that left us all wanting more. I look forward to many more collaborations."

The talk & laughter have not stopped and are sure to continue to be very alive among our colleagues. Your characters, story line and all that came with it was nothing short of professional and impressive. You made our dealer appreciation event exceptional and a great success for both us and our guests. The engagement you brought with our guests not only helped us continue the opportunity for our company to strength our relationships, but to relax and enjoy and evening of pure entertainment. On behalf of myself and our staff at Mackenzie Investments, thank you for this wonderful experience!"

""The Big Time crew is hilarious, engaging, witty, quick on their feet and downright fun! To anyone who is considering hiring Big Time for a staff/team function – DO IT! They were the buzz of the office Monday morning! My only issue - the bar has been set extremely high for next year’s party; this will be hard to top!"

"Thank you once again for an awesome presentation last Saturday night. I received several calls at home on Sunday from people who had attended just to tell me how much they had enjoyed it and to thank me for bringing you to Stirling. I hope to be in touch soon to plan our next event. Please thank your cast for me and on behalf of the Lions' Club."
- Natalie P.
"I just wanted to say thank you for the BEST night of entertainment I've ever had. The performers were wonderful, mixed well with our staff, and on an individual basis, were truly into their characters. Their interaction with the other actors was hilarious! The performance was truly professional, and in no way felt or looked rehearsed. I, for one, laughed more that night than any other I can remember, and loved the individual characters... who never missed a beat and kept things rolling at a quick and hilarious pace, constantly interacting with the audience.
So, thank you sincerely, for letting me go to bed with a sore tummy and aching cheeks from laughing, and for making our conference such a success! (I'm trying to figure out how to bring you to another function, so that people who missed it can see what we are all raving about!!)"

"The response from our district was unbelievable. Everyone jumped right into the act and you made actors out of our own people. By having them participate, it created even more entertainment for the others. The questions and remarks to our own people were in good taste and extremely well incorporated into your act. The complements have been flowing in. This was a perfect morale booster and I even saw some people working in teams to try to solve the murder... You made our job so much easier and made us look good in the process. I am sure that many will remember this day for many years."
- Gisele V.
Stentor Canada Network Management
"We have been getting an enthusiastic response to the day and especially the murder mystery. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.

The coordination of the performance with the train was excellent and your enthusiasm and flexibility were indispensable."

"I have now hosted close to a dozen of your dinner theatre events here at the Monterey Inn over the past year and have found them to be of superior quality, executed to perfection, and without equal in revenue production. The most positive spin-off has certainly been the draw of first time customers to The Monterey Inn. This form of entertainment is new to this area and there has been a really positive response as you know.
Best of luck to you and your crew on any new venture, and we will look forward to "The CodFather" on September 28th, which is almost sold out already."

Your ability to customize your performance to include some of our guests in the scenario really made for an extra special evening. Please also accept my personal thanks for the professional assistance you gave me in the initial planning stages of this conference. There are many pressures associated with selecting entertainment for any conference. I truly made the right choice. You really do provide Entertainment To Die For!"

"...We couldn't have imagined such a successful and fun evening the BigTime Idol Show would provide. The delegates have told us repeatedly that it was the most fun evening ever. One just had to look at our 190 guests and see the tears of laughter combined with the enthusiastic participation of the audience. "The tremendous talents of your actors entertaining us were incredible. As organizers of this conference what we appreciated so much was being able to sit back and just enjoy the evening knowing it was in the hands of professionals. Not only were we definitely not disappointed; you exceeded our wildest hopes for a successful evening."
- Theresa G.

"I just thought I would send you a note to express my congratulations on a job well done. Everybody loved the idea of a murder mystery for a birthday party. The birthday girl loved it. You and your team made it easy to arrange and performed with professionalism. Hats off to your actors who did a great job."
- Jim M.

"I just have to write to tell you how impressed I was with last night's performance. You put together an excellent package. The actors were superb, obviously talented but also intuitive. They coped with a diverse crowd and all shapes and sizes of 'suspects.' The package of scripts and the investigation tied together beautifully. Even the birthday boy enjoyed himself after he got over the shock of the surprise. My favorite part was the birthday song. If your detective kept the lyrics, I would be hugely grateful to get my hands on a copy.
Thanks again for your professionalism and humour. Everyone had a BLAST!!!"

“I cannot thank you and your cast enough for the incredible time we had at our annual Christmas party this past Saturday! I have received so many comments from people who agree that it was by far the best time they have had at any function - ever. However, I did receive a few complaints about the headaches that people got from laughing so hard and I'm not sure how my make-up looked after the evening from all the tears that were shed! I think the standing ovation just shows how much we all enjoyed the evening.
I can't wait for the repeat performance at next year's party and I'm sure everyone else will be delighted that we have decided to do the same thing. In a time where many companies are foregoing their annual parties for a more serious business attitude, I appreciate your help in letting everyone at Trailcon get a little crazy and let loose for a good party. I'm not sure that we can top Saturday's performance, however, I'm looking forward to an even crazier night next year!"
