- Apart from ... laughing so much we almost cried and that was just as your guys were mingling and pouring out wine. They have perfected the happy knack of picking on unfortunate souls who find it difficult to laugh under any circumstances! They were brilliant, we have had amazing feedback from everyone that that was the best part of the day. Everyone would have liked them to go on longer. Each member of the team played their distinctive role perfectly and complimented each other. ... Seriously, they were a great hit. We will use them again, or recommend to others willingly.

Susan Manley, Pro Am Match

- Café Kolbert is unique. They artfully transform a traditional dinner into an orgy of laughter, through chaos and impertinence. Regardless of age, sex, profession or background the dinner guests were rolling in the aisles when the Showwaiters incomparable staff revealed themselves. As an event organiser, Contrast has tried out countless troubadours, trolls and stand-up comedians to provide entertainment during dinner. Since we got to know about these wonderful waiters, Café Kolbert has always been our top recommendation.

Benni Hokkanen, Contrast Events

- Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Karen Murphy , Commercial Manager, Wycombe Wanderers FC

- Fabulous entertainment! The only drawback: stomach cramps from laughing.

- Café Kolbert is becoming one of the Danish Tourist Boards exports to the rest of Scandinavia, in the same league as Royal Copenhagen, Tivoli and Legoland.

The Royal Danish Postal Service

- I just wanted to thank you for your performance yesterday, which was as fantastic as ever. It was a resounding success. The only thing that my colleagues can talk about today is the Showwaiters and how incredibly fun you were which is a very good sign as we have all seen a LOT of entertainers, concerts etc. Thanks to you all - you are the greatest

Patrick Lindell, The Globe Arena

- Just imagine - I have now invited these greasy haired, loud-mouthed oafs, with their bursts of á cappella and their terribly ill-fitting trousers, to come and bother my guests and staff on eleven different occasions - and every time they went home much too early... the waiters that is. Very versatile and frantically funny entertainment of the highest quality... and always at breakneck speed. The Showwaiters even took care of 1400 Germans in both High and low German with equal ease.

Lars Larsen, CEO, Jysk

- Big thanks for a great show. All of the feed back from our customers has been positive and we at NOKIA were, and continue to be, very happy with your contribution. Beyond a shadow of a doubt you get our recommendation.

Mads Winblad, CEO, NOKIA

- What an enjoyable night... Everybody was delighted with your hilarious show.

Johanna Sanabria, Manager, Cancer Research UK

- I do not think we have ever had such a good ambiance at our Kick Off. An absolutely wonderful show.

Richard Palmgen, Geilo Booking

- We would like to thank you for an outstanding bit of entertainment. Before the event we were naturally rather apprehensive about how such entertainment would be viewed by our conference delegates and, to be completely honest, we were more than a little worried ourselves. As you will hopefully have noticed it was undoubtedly a great success which raised the whole event a notch or two... Thank you once more for an incredibly professional and well-balanced performance which we all enjoyed enormously.

Paul Halvorsen, The VW Group

- A better ice breaker for a networking evening would be hard to find.

Osvald M. Bjelland, The Performance Group

- On behalf of the EEC Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy, I would like to express our gratitude for Café Kolberts participation and performance. The reactions from all of the different nationalities have been very positive and it is amazing that your sense of humour can be so well understood across cultural boundaries

Ole Sondergaard, JMC Italy

- In the 3 years of organising our company events I have never had so many request for how did I find such fantastic entertainment and where do you get these ideas from? The look on our guests faces was priceless, from the start the confused expressions of I need to be polite to this very friendly waiter, to the side glances of is this for real to their table, then the gradual realisation that it was staged. It’s hard to put into words the brilliance of the concept. Just the most superb entertainment you could book.Thank you so much.

Richard Gallacher, COCO-interiors UK Limited, Sussex County Cricket Ground

- We were a group of 45 people from 23 different countries (Europe, Asia, South Africa and the USA) but Café Kolbert had no problems - on the contrary, their performance was very professionally delivered. They work with an open-minded attitude that is wonderful to meet. Furthermore, they were extremely good at adapting to the humour of the group... they had the whole group laughing and cheering. We have received responses from most of the 45 guests and they all found the Showwaiters extremely funny and very good entertainment.

Lena Cronquist, Intl. Process Co-ordinator, COLUMBUS IT Partner ltd

- You made our function a success and all that I can do is bow to you and say a BIG thank you. I think that it is really fantastic that you were able to pick up on the mood and signals from the audience and used them so incredibly well. Everybody had a chance to satisfy their appetites and have a great time at the same time. That is a fine sense of your audience and professionalism all in one! We laughed and cried. I myself am glad to have had the opportunity to experience you one more time. A thousand thanks for a fantastic show.

Babro Svinhufvud, Crawfords Auctioneers

- Café Kølbert has made stand-up into one of the branches of gastronomy... they made people roar with laughter.

BA Norway

- Superbly innovative and thoroughly engrossing entertainment."

Peter Gilham , Head of Communications & Events, Brentford Football Club

- Many thanks for an unforgettable evening, after which it has taken us several days to regain our straight faces. EVERYONE has come to me with so many superlatives that there certainly is not room to fit them all on this card and so I just want to say THANK YOU."

Lene Carlson, Wagonlit

- I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team for yesterdays entertainment! They were great – very amusing and different – the guests really enjoyed them.

- My wife has never been abused so entertainingly as she was by the Showwaiters. After having myself served as one of these waiters for hire for one night, I have become secretly infatuated with Miss Svennevig. With waiterly greetings,

Jan Stenberg, Managing Director, SAS - Scandinavian Airlines

- Wow !! What a great performance. They had everyone laughing and it was such an “icebreaker” by the end of the hour everyone was talking about it and say “where did you find that act”!

Clive Kersey, Private birthday

- I want to thank you for your wonderful performance at the Globes kick-off party. I have certainly never seen our staff laughing so raucously. I myself suffered stomach cramps and aching cheeks from laughing so hard.

Monica Larsson, The Globe Arena

- Many thanks for your visit. I send you greetings and want to say that our function last Saturday was a stunning success thanks to your performance. I have received e-mails from near and far, full of enthusiastic praise for your performance. I can only add that it was mega-fun and that even the restaurant manager from The America thanked me for your entertainment. What more can I say than: You're the best! Many, many thanks.

Jane Andreasen, Enskilda Securities Intl.

- Several hours of unruly fun! The one hundred or so travel agents won't soon forget the Scandic Hotel Group's presentation of its products because it was incredibly funny and different... It was Café Kølbert's Comedy Showwaiters that performed this riotously crazy service... The Showwaiters are specialists in madcap comic entertainment of the quirkiest kind though at odd moments they can also be stylish in their waiters' get-up. These exceptionally courteous and unorthodox waiters are masters in taking things to the very limits, but never overstepping the mark.

Travel Trade Magazine of Scandinavia

- Just a quick note to thank you for such a great performance last Saturday night. We got loads of compliments from guests about how much they enjoyed it. I hope you ad as much fun as we did!
