What you say:
You were the highlight of our wedding evening. If you don't mind my saying so, I was surprised at how beautiful you looked - and danced. Those pirouettes!!! And you were utterly hysterical – especially with your “victims”.
Thank you again so very much.
Had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with this delightful man @Iestynedwards I haven't laughed like that in ages. And I can assure you will if you read his book 'My Tutu Went AWOL'
Read the room perfectly to get ally laughs from us all!
The audience howled with laughter, stamped and cheered!
A rare and perfect synthesis of art and larkiness!
