It was lovely to see you at Ferndown at the Alliss Invitational. I love the new routine featuring President Trump. The mannerisms, the voice and particularly the wig, were absolutely magnificent. I hope he gets in for a second term so we can see more of you – he certainly gives you plenty of material!
All good wishes for the future, it’s wonderful that you keep coming up with new material, beautifully presented. Long may you prosper!
Wishing you all the very best,

Mike's Trump impression is very, VERY funny!
- JOHN CLEESE
Mike’s Donald Trump was a surprise present for me by a friend for my 70th Birthday party. It was brilliant for a mixed audience in my own home. A little locker room humour, which was very funny and so topical - my guests loved it. President Trump called me up to discuss a super yacht that he wanted me to design, he asked so many great questions and he had obviously done his research. My favourite was when he asked about propulsion I suggested Diesel Electric as it's so environmentally friendly. His response was one of utter disgust and he replied with "Don’t you watch the news? I've pulled the USA out of the Paris agreement, I want coal. I want to make coal great again...!" Mike’s Trump was a perfect present and a great addition to my party, he would be perfect for any event.

"If you want a great evening don't look any further than Mike Osman!!
What a repertoire, just outstanding!
The best after dinner entertainment I have ever witnessed in my 25 years as a golf professional!!
His "trump" card and the routine that stole the evening was his incredible Donald Trump, totally topical and so realistic, the man himself could have been there! After a brilliant and fabulously entertaining hour most of the room had tears in their eyes!
Humour at its very best!!"

Mike is the reason I gave up doing impressions;
I could not compete with him. He is brilliant!

Hi Mike, I didn’t get a chance to thank you again. But wow! Amazing, hilarious, fresh and the comedy value was phenomenal.
- JAMES SNELGAR
As the President of the US of A, you were superb. From start to finish it was so funny.
The mannerisms, the voice, the look were tip top. It was clearly well thought out, prepared for and it was great how you got the audience involved throughout the whole routine.
Only one word is adequate. Flawless.

The STA was delighted to welcome Mike Osman to our Annual Dinner in Edinburgh in the guise of Donald Trump. With Donald Trump being such a high profile figure right now and Mike’s impersonation being ‘so good, so good’ he was a big hit with our audience. The content and comedy was perfect and what was most notable was the number of people wishing to take selfies with him after his performance. I would highly recommend Mike to anybody wishing to book him.
- ANDREW CARPENTER
Just had to say thank you for the fabulous Trump, and others, performance at our event. People were gob smacked and totally fooled when you came in. Everyone is still talking about it and saying it was the best event they had ever been to. So many wanted pictures with you... I will be recommending you to anyone who wants a very special charity or corporate event. Thanks again Mike and kindest regards.

The audience reaction to President Trump was amazing. Mike captured the real essence of the character. The look was totally convincing as was the outrageous rhetoric - and the voice. Wow! That voice. Incredible. The thing that took us all by surprise though was the people who wanted selfies with the "great man." I've never quite seen anything like it. They couldn't get enough!

Mike Osman as Donald Trump’s opening line is the best I have ever seen! When he did the 'Trump voice', people were amazed and Kim Jong-un popping up during Mike’s rendition of “How do I solve a problem like North Korea?” brought the house down.
When he told the audience, as Trump, that he was the best impressionist in the world he proved that indeed he was, with his incredible mimicry of Boris Johnson, Barack Obama, Michael McIntyre, Jose Mourhino, Arsene Wenger, Jeremy Clarkson, James Nesbitt, Harry Kane, Micky Flanagan, Andy Murray, Jacob Rees Mogg and Nigel Farage. The list could go on!
The act was so fresh, so new, so funny and to top it all he spent an hour afterwards doing selfies and video messages with our guests.
For those of you who saw Osman with the late Peter Brackley, which was regarded as the best after dinner act on the circuit at the time, he is back at the same level and I would recommend his act to any client or company - Simply outstanding!

Mike was brilliant as Trump on our show last Friday, broadcast all around the world on Bein TV.
Make sure you see his Trump live - it's incredible!

We were pleased to welcome “Donald Trump” to our recent Annual Lunch and Awards at The Dorchester; his memorable visit added a topical and timely injection of humour and was extremely well received by our guests. It was a pleasure to engage Mike who fully understood the brief and delivered a fitting, professional and on-message performance.

Ok - I shall admit it - I was wrong.
It was great to spend the afternoon with Mike again last Friday. I’ve always rated him as one of the very best and he’s done some wonderful stuff as himself that I’ve enjoyed for a big part of the last 20 years.
Against my own preconceptions about what people would expect and enjoy at the Leasing Industry Macmillan Lunch last Friday, Mike delivered a truly unforgettable 35 minutes as Donald Trump. From the moment he entered the room in all his fully wigged, ghastly Trumpishness, the afternoon just flew, with a responsive audience and end to end laughter.
It’s a great act, really great. And of course as you and Mike predicted, people were clamouring for messages and selfies with DT/MO long after the formalities had ended. It says a lot about Mike that he was happy to stick around and allow people to continue enjoying his ‘performance art’.
So, I was wrong. But what a great way to be put right!!

Well what a huge success!!!!!
I wanted to let you know that Mike was absolutely fantastic yesterday, he really was so good a true entertainer! I have had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, our guests loved him! It really worked very well. The level of social media was during and after his performance was crazy!
Personally I found it a pleasure to work with Mike a true pro and also Jack (KJU). Mike arrived early and stayed afterwards for hundreds of selfies. The whole act was just brilliant! He really read the audience well and I am very pleased with how it all went.
Thanks for the intro to him and I am sure we can work together on future events going forward.
Oh my God – how good are you? What a wonderful time the Marshall guests had – you were great, brilliant, hilarious.
You are so talented, I presume as Trump fades – Boris appears.
We loved having you as part of the evening on Saturday, I am sure you don’t need a reference but please use me.

KidsOut has regularly used Mike Osman for their major fundraising events and have never been disappointed. Mike is a consummate professional who is attune to his audience and has always listened to our changing requirements. I thought I had seen him at his best many times but this year he absolutely nailed 2 of our major events as both compere and auctioneer. The committees for both of these events were reluctant to use him as they were concerned about how Donald Trump would be perceived. As KidsOut had successfully used him at many other of our events, they reluctantly agreed to take him.
The committees running these 2 events were poles apart from what they wanted from him. The first was adamant that they did not want Donald Trump and wanted him to be fairly serious. Mike controlled the 870 audience magnificently and we raised a staggering record amount from the evening and in particular the main auction. The committee were blown away by his performance – so much so, that they have booked him again for next year and are willing to risk some Trump or Boris!
The second event was his now infamous Donald Trump act but he delayed dressing up etc until he had completed the emotional fund raising part of the evening. Once that was out of the way, he appeared to a great fanfare as Donald Trump. We have never received such positive feedback from any of our events and the committee have booked him, as Boris, for their next event. As Donald he could not have been a funnier or better auctioneer which resulted in significantly more being raised than expected. On the night, we had a record amount of attendees book a table for next year!
All in all, I cannot thank Mike enough for the many events he has conducted so successfully for KidsOut and we intend to continue to use his services on a regular basis.
