Testimonials

“A polished professional who worked really well in the theatre with a great line up of ‘dolls’ and the audience participation section with the masks which is always a winner.” – P & O Cruises 2015

“A real gem of a vent act, Tamley is as good as acts like this can become. A huge array of characters on show, with Lightening Les the underweight boxer proving to be a real winner. Tamley is also one of the few ventriloquists whi is just as effective in holiday centres as on a theatre stage.” – Mark Ritchie, The Stage Newspaper 2007

“Don’t expect the traditional one man and his doll routine that can often lose its inital impact, when you go and see Jimmy Tamely. There is no way he just stays still with a sole character. This guy has atleast four and they all make an impact. The cross talk between them cleverly interrupted by Tamley is quite delightful.” – John Hannam, The Stage Newspaper

“Probably the best technical ventriloquist I’ve seen in the last 20 years.” – Ray Alan and Lord Charles

“Jimmy Tamley without doubt gave us the funniest 50 minutes of our lives. The crowd agreed because they were calling and screaming for more. If you want to be entertained by sheer class book Jimmy Tamley.” – Tim Clifford, Cork University Events Organiser

“Jimmy Tamley, billed as one of the funniest ventriloquists around. So often acts rely on the cudly nature of their props and forget about their material, not so here. He quickly built a great rapport between the members of his ‘family’ and the audience and the comedy is of a high standard throughout. His last character – ‘underweight’ boxer Lightning Les – is a classic.” – Derek Smith, The Stage

“A huge thank you to Jimmy Tamley for performing at our ‘end of campaign’ celebration. He was a great success and made a lasting impression .” – British Sugar plc

“An excellent topical entertainer who was technically quite superb. A bright modern act presented extremely professionally ” – Major T.J. Cavender, HQ Army School of Mechanical Transport – Combined Services Entertainment
