Aaron James – Sporting Dinners

Aaron is in great demand for sportsman’s dinners with an ability to host as well as finish the evening off. He has appeared alongside many great sporting icons including:

Lennox Lewis – Eric Cantona – George Best – Ricky Hatton – Sven Goran-Eriksson – Will Carling – Gary Lineker – Phil Tufnell – Kevin Keegan

And many, many more. He is also popular at players’ Benefit Dinners.


Just wanted to drop you a quick ‘Thank You!’ for last Thursday.  The event was marvellous – the best yet I think, and as before, you had everyone roaring with laughter. I was up in Suffolk staying with friends for the weekend, and they were at the dinner you compered at Sudbury FC – they too thought you did a fantastic job! All the best for the next 12 months – I’ll be in contact in due course once we’ve settled on next year’s date, as you are now considered one of the Team.

All the best,

Sally Ann , MA Assist Group
“We have worked closely with Aaron James for almost twenty years, at theatre shows and sportsman’s dinners. He was always Jimmy Greaves favourite comedian! He’s one of the best in the business and did a great job on our recent Eric Cantona shows. We would recommend him for any event, he always does a great job.”
Terry Baker, A1 Sporting Speakers
“On behalf of all those attending last night’s dinner can I say what a great night it was and thanks to you for yet another truly professional and memorable performance. The guys were full of praise for making them laugh and thoroughly enjoy the evening. I too greatly valued your company during the evening and I hope that with Dave on your side that you enjoyed the evening too. I send to you not only my thanks but also my best wishes for continued success.”
Chris Simms, St.George’s day celebration dinner
“Got your card off you as you were leaving the Phil Tufnell lunch on Monday. Just wanted to say, I I thought you were brilliant, amazing timing and on the spot wit….carried off in a professional manner. I run a few events up here in the Midlands and are always on the look out for new talent to host events etc”
Dave Harper, Dynamite Doodles
“Back at work and have been bombarded with feedback from Saturday night, EVERYONE says what a bloody great comedian and are recalling some of the gags or ‘personal attacks’ you made. Nick Tavare has asked when are we organising the next one?! Top job as always!”
Steve Thatcher, Luxonic Lighting
“Thanks for your fabulous contribution to our event last night. Without your input the evening would not have been the great success it was. Your comedy was hilarious and you handled the q&a with Mick Harford with assured aplomb! I hope that we will see you again.”
Iain McGregor, Bedford Town FC
“I want to say a massive thanks for yesterday mate. You were absolutely brilliant and the feedback from everyone was that your set was hilarious. I definitely want to rebook you again for next years Beaujolais lunch. Once again thank you and will be in touch soon.”
Mark Ellison - Manager, Fleet Street Kitchen
“Thank you very much for your work on Friday, everyone I have spoken to enjoyed the evening and your performance. The organisers were particularly pleased and grateful that you compared the whole evening. You certainly worked hard and very professionally, particularly in the Q&A session with Martin Keown. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for a similar function if asked.”
Alan Butler, Oxford Golf club
“Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for an excellent performance at our Dinner & Dance which everybody really enjoyed and which contributed to a very successful evening for Stewkley FC. Many thanks again for agreeing to come and entertain us and I look forward to talking to you again at some point in the future.”
Kevin Bowsher, Stewkley FC
“Many thanks for your brilliant performances last night at Burton hockey club alongside Gareth Chilcott. I’ve had loads of complimentary remarks about the entertainment, and we exceeded our expectations in terms of money raised. I shan’t hesitate to recommend you both to others and if ever you need to refer a potential for a recommendation feel free to give them my contact details”
Ian Morgan, Burton Hockey Club

I’m not sure if Mark has been in touch but on behalf of Oswestry Rugby Club can I offer our sincere thanks for all your hard work at our Sportsmans Dinner last Saturday. To be honest we have been a bit disillusioned with some of the comedians we have been supplied with in recent years so you really were a breath of fresh air! You kept the evening flowing perfectly, your material was spot on for our audience and your Q&A with Sam worked really well. We have received fantastic feedback from the evening and everyone has said how much they enjoyed both you and Sam. Many thanks once again and we hope to welcome you back to Oswestry very soon.

Mike Jones, Oswestry Rugby Club

Morning Aaron
I hope you’ve had a good weekend? I just wanted to say thanks for Friday you did a great job. Everyone seemed to have a great time and I got lots of lovely feedback saying how much fun the afternoon was. Look forward to working with you again( I have only written that sentence five times in the last 40 years).
