European Parliament Burns Supper in Brussels

For the second year in a row Bruce Fummey stole the show at the European Parliament Burns Supper in Brussels. He mesmerised a room of politicians, many of whom had never heard of Burns, with a standout performance of the Bard’s verse. Many left still not entirely sure who Burns was but they definitely knew who Bruce Fummey was: one of Scotland’s finest comedy exports.

European Parliament Burns Supper in Brussels

Bruce was the star performer at the European Parliament's Annual Burns Supper in January 2014. What a superb rendition of Tam O'Shanter and some hilarious quips to bring the house down! Great act and great success, helping us to raise over €6,000 for Mercy Corps.

I have performed at Burns suppers all over the world, from Hong Kong to Canada, and that is the best Immortal Memory speech I have ever heard

The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice Dinner

On behalf of everyone at The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice may I thank you very much indeed for the most wonderful and amusing Address to the Haggis and Immortal Memory which you proposed at our recent ‘Celebration of Burns’. You certainly kept the audience spellbound with your witty and entertaining performance and the feedback is that the evening was a great success.

Annual Celebration Dinner of Falkirk Burns Club

Bruce proposed The toast to Scotland at the annual celebration dinner of Falkirk Burns Club. Bruce delivered the toast in fine style but began with an appreciation of his fellow entertainers that displayed the generous nature of the man. Bruce centred his toast on the nature of the Scottish psyche that welcomed and exported people from and to all parts of the world. Bruce made fun of himself and his own background in what proved to be a hilarious delivery. His huge intellect and amazing humour earned him a well deserved standing ovation from the Club.

Burns Supper

Have seen Bruce several times and most recently he performed a fantastic Tam O'Shanter at our local Burns Supper. Bruce also hosted a very successful comedy night at our hotel. I can only say that Bruce has many strings to his comedic, speechmaking and performing bow and would thoroughly recommend that if you need someone to add a little bit of sparkle. panache and professionalism to any event then Bruce is your man.

Dubai Caledonian Society Burns Night

I saw Bruce at the recent Dubai Caledonian Society Burns Night. Laugh! I nearly pee'd myself. From the reaction of the rest of the crowd, they alsofound Bruce extreamly funny.

The Society in Dubai are also now thinking of bringing Bruce out again in June. so watch this space.

If you are thinking of hiring Bruce, do not hesitate.

Dubai Caledonian Society Burns Night

Seen Bruce and the Dubai Caledonian Society Burns night, 1st Feb 07. Thought he was excellent. Good to see that along with few other others (myself included) Bruce was still there at 3.30am helping the bar staff remove the last of the whisky from the bottles.

A good night/morning!

Burns Supper

Bruce gave a great performance at a Burns Supper on Saturday evening. He delivered the immortal memory with knowledge and humour and finished with a wonderful and energetic rendition of Tam O'Shanter. He ticks all the boxes for formal toasts and entertaining recitation as well as brilliant stand up. Thanks for a great evening.
