Dick Deveroux was fantastic from the second the event commenced, as he hyped up our guests event before they entered the venue.

Everyone got involved and the fact that it was interactive and very well organised and run, it was a great success!" - Crown Melbourne

"The magician was a great sport and made an active effort to do tricks in front of the client, which was great. The adagio trio was fun and quirky. The client loved it when they roamed around the room and just did little tricks like stand on top of one another and take pictures with guests. The aerialist was the true highlight though and we loved her performance! The make - up and outfit was spot on for her and she represented the Flying Maiden well! Thank you for making the custom designed outfit!" - Erinea Gloria, The Big Group (2016 Virgin AFL Grand Final Party)
"Pirate Pursuit was an amazing event. We were so glad that we booked with Applause for our entertainment at out conference. Our host was perfect in his role as One-Eyed Pete, we couldn’t have asked for a more fun and well organised event. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was a great way to get our staff working together with team members outside their usual working groups all whilst have a great time." - Rebecca Henderson (Corporate Team Building)

"The GAME SHOW LIVE format is definitely an event I would recommend to other organisations as a great team building experience. An excellent evening of team bonding and so many laughs." - Tiffany Lay, Olympus Australia

"So many people told me that they haven’t laughed so hard in ages, or that their face hurt from laughing so much… the hosts were fantastic, they were witty, engaging, and very good at choosing people to play roles in the Murder Mystery. The night flowed really smoothly, they kept control of the event without being overbearing, everyone was involved, and everyone just had a fantastic time." - Aimee Ryland, Victoria Police (Christmas Capers Murder Mystery)

Was a great teambuilding event, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it." - Rachael Curtin, APP Property and Infrastructure Specialists (Murder at the Diner Murder Mystery)

"We used Applause Entertainment to book a roving magician for our Christmas Party. The booking process was very smooth, after an initial discussion to find out our requirements and make sure the entertainment would be suitable, Applause kept in touch in the lead up to the event to make sure we were comfortable and all the details were confirmed. Our magician, arrived right on time on the night and really wowed our guests – he was very engaging and we’ve received great feedback about the event. We’ll definitely be using Applause Entertainment again to keep our events enjoyable and memorable for our guests." - Amber Hopkins, BNI CBD Enterprise (Corporate Roving Magician)


"Was a great evening and the host was exceptional!! To put up with a large loud group - he managed it very well. Will definitely recommend this event to others. Great feedback from our staff involved." - Hannah Brereton, Longley Hotel (Murder Mystery Team Building)

"The Game Show Live was a huge success with the team. It brought a level of excitement and engagement to what would have otherwise been a typical sit down dinner. The energy in the room shifted as soon as each round commenced and the large variety of topics in each round ensured that there were questions that were relevant to the diverse team demographics. There was a great balance of playful competition and laughter, and it was definitely the highlight of the night!" - Kyla Ansell, Mondelez International (Game Show LIVE -  Corporate Awards Night)

"We had Applause manage our entertainment (70s music trivia) for our 2017 conference dinner and they were so good that we booked them again for our 2018 conference. However, for this year they did the ‘Paparazzi’ for the Welcome Reception and ‘That 90s Game Show' for the Conference Dinner. We found them to be professional, well prepared and really engaging with our delegates. You would not be disappointed if you booked them." Pamela Richards, Speech Pathology Australia

"Quick email to let you know that the event was amazing and our feedback from our guests was that they greatly enjoyed. In particular I must highlight the ringmaster who definitely set the tone for the evening and your magician who was a standout hilarious performer who had the mood in the room completely uplifted by the time he completed his show. Highly recommend all of these performers - thank you once again." Joanne Worsfield, Australia Pilates Methods Association


"The entertainment Applause provided for our annual awards night was absolutely spectacular! Our guests were amazed by the talent and as the organiser of the event I was really happy with the professionalism and assistance provided throughout the whole process." Sarah Viliamu, Stellar Asia Pacific



"The performer was fantastic as our Charlie Chaplin character once again and was certainly the centre of attention. His ability to improvise and wow the crowd is certainly unique. He engaged beautifully with kids, grandparents and all of those in between with his warmth and beautiful sense of humour. Great work Charlie!" Ros Walls, Albury City Council


"We used Applause Entertainment to hire a Santa actor for our annual Christmas concert. The team at applause were very professional and were a pleasure to deal with. They responded promptly and clearly to all communication and were flexible with some last minute changes in scheduling. The Santa actor was great and worked really well with the conductor, musicians, staff and audiences. He elevated our Christmas concert to another level and made a lot of children’s and adult’s day! I’d recommend Applause Entertainment to others in the industry and would use them again in the future." Karl Knapp, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

The 90’s Trivia was awesome, the team had so much fun getting into it. The hosts we had were awesome, they did a fantastic job getting everyone into it and flooding our minds with the good old days." Valerie McMahon, Americold


Private parties and functions clients:

"Your staff were brilliant, the whole service was seamless, very professional." - Karen, Paul and Bethany

"I have recommended your company to everyone that has asked me, and if I could have a 30th every year, this is the way I would go, it was just a wonderful experience." - Carolyn

"The most disappointing part unfortunately was watching Raoul (the character host) leave.. there was a covert plot to keep him and not let him go, though as most of us are responsible adults and mums...we knew it was against our better judgement and thus much to our regret ... we relented!" - Ilinka (Murder Mystery birthday party)

"The kids loved the magician's act - my daughter wants to have him at her party too!" - Felicity

"A great night was had by all, I think especially by the more reticent participants. Every step in the process was professionally handled and you were always available when I had any concerns." - Robyn (Murder Mystery birthday party)


"My friends and I loved the excuse to get dressed up and bring our characters to life. Many went to a great deal of effort to get a costume and act out their objectives on the night. In fact, I don’t recall having many ‘normal’ conversations as everyone was enjoying playing their part. It was also a great ice-breaker to get different groups of friends to talk to one another as there was no awkward small talk." - Katelyn (Murder Mystery birthday party)

"We had the pleasure of working with a Hoax Waiter for our recent dinner celebration. Wow! What an absolute delight!! The evening was an incredible success and an amazing time was had by all. The performer integrated beautifully. His acting was authentic and his antics got progressively more inappropriate and hilarious as the night went on. Our guests are still laughing and their collective shock, when we finally revealed his identity, was nothing short of priceless. We’re still telling stories. From the moment we engaged Applause we were in brilliant hands and never looked back. A wonderful event, made even more special by our Hoax Waiter." - Estelle and Greg (Greg's 30th birthday party)

"We loved the customer service that we received from everyone at Applause- thank you so much! It was a perfect way to celebrate a 30th birthday and everyone had a great time. It was particularly useful for us as we had a diverse group of friends that didn’t know each other. The host and mystery packs were a great way to encourage people to interact and talk to people they didn’t know." - Georgia (30th birthday Murder Mystery Murder Mansion)

"The company was excellent, the food delicious and your ‘friends’ from England were just great...We would not have missed it for quids." Helen and Alun (Guest feedback for Maggie's 80th birthday Fawlty Towers tribute show)

"The guests enjoyed all the games, and really got into the role plays and competition of figuring out who the murderer was.

It made our job really easy as hosts of the party, as the guests were all entertained for the entire time. I definitely recommend a Murder Mystery event for other Hen Nights or any type of party and Applause Entertainment really made the process of booking and organising it very easy!" Jenni (Hen's Night Murder Mystery) 

"I just wanted to send out a massive thank you to everyone at Applause and to the performers for their performance. It was absolutely incredible. The Yr 7 Students were completely mesmerised and thoroughly enjoyed the entire show. They were perfect for engaging Yr 7s (which can be difficult), I know many students will go home today and talk about things they saw and learned during the performance." Lauren Farrugia from Bialik College (Yr 7 Science Week)


"Our 1920s Great Gatsby Murder Mystery event was amazing!  It was different from the tradition murder mystery of sitting around a dinner table and playing over a long meal, which was perfect for the type of party we held.  By being team based and active, it meant people could mingle and get to know each other and it created a great atmosphere at the party." Priya P. (Surprise Birthday Party)
