Type: Comedian / Impersonator
Rick Sahar features as MANUEL from FAWLTY TOWERS.
Based on the character from the well known T.V. series Manuel can serve a glass of bubbly (as only Manuel can) to welcome people as they arrive as an "ice breaker", perform a hilarious show full of audience participation or take the role of MC, with a fun memorable difference. Manuel can also deliver a personalized "Manuel-o-Gram" to someone special in the audience.
Normally Rick arrives at venue early and negotiates some special surprises with the event caterers. These he either delivers himself or responds to diners queries about the offending items in exactly the same way as Manuel on TV. You never quite know what will happen next as Manuel mixes it with your diners! Chaos! Expect lots of surprises. In addition Manuel can perform 1 or 2 short skits out front of house as special features.
"Having seen 'Manuel' at work I can thoroughly recommend this for a special event be it a wedding , product launch or Corporate function - he is just great & really brings chaos where order should rein. You expect John Clees (Basil) to walk in at any time!"
ideal for: themed event, conference dinner, private party
in 2011 Rick was awarded the prestigious Variety Artists Club of NZ Variety Artist of the year award
We all had a fabulous night and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Rick provided us with a great performance and was a pleasure to work with. His suggestions provided did well to enhance our evening. We trust he had an enjoyable and pleasant stay at the Plymouth Hotel and that all his needs were catered for without any hassles. Please thank him again from us for accepting our invite and we trust he enjoyed presenting himself as much as we enjoyed receiving his antics.

Thanks Robyn, yes Rick was great. Thank you
Thank you, we were really pleased with Rick Sahar as Manuel last night. The performance was enjoyed by every one in our group. We would be happy to use Rick again or recommend him to others.
Rick was incredible – please pass on our thanks to him, he was well received by our delegates.
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for your assistance in booking Rick for our event last night.
Rick was a huge success and everyone I have spoken to loved him. He really added to our evening and as the liason person I would just like to thank you both for making the whole process easy and worry free.
I will definitely be recommending you both to anyone looking for entertainment ideas.

As the Venue Manager for Windy Ridge, I can let you know that Saturday was a great success. Rick was a true entertainer and professional and I received excellent feedback from all tables and guests that were at the show on Saturday. Rick really worked the whole room and got everyone laughing, both males and females and they all said that he was excellent and they had a great time. He offered great diversity in his acts and knew how to interact the crowd into the show.
As the group was only 45-50 this was a good number for him, the only concern I would have is if we had a larger crowd of 100-150 would 1 person be enough as the Faulty Tower show to keep everyone entertained for the evening??
I would highly recommend Rick and the Faulty Tower show to anyone interested in this comedy and recommend Rick as a performer, very professional, easy to work with and very approachable.
I just wanted to let you know that Rick did a brilliant job entertaining us last night.
We all had a brilliant time and everyone loved the show Rick put on.
The day went wonderfully and Rick certainly went down a treat, We enjoyed his entertainment.
Yes thanks it was a great night and Rick put on a great performance throughout the evening
Thanks Kellie...we all enjoyed Manuel very much!

It was a great performance - enjoyed by all!
Many thanks, Kirsty Eagle

The performance provided by Manuel was far more than satisfactory. He was excellent and ensured that his performance was tailored to the audience that attended the event. He worked brilliantly with the auctioneer we had arranged. One participant commented “I haven’t laughed so much since I went to see the Naked Samoans”.
The contact with Manuel prior to the event was timely and useful as well. In all a very professional and successful experience.

Thank you very much for your follow up email. We were really impressed with both our acts for the evening.
We felt Rick Sahar was excellent as Manuel – he provided just the sort of light relief we were looking for, as we needed someone to get people talking, but not an act that everyone had to stop what they were doing to watch. I particularly appreciated his ability to sense who was receptive to his act and willing to interact with him, without embarrassing those who were a little more shy. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to other people looking for entertainment. Rick was also great to deal with prior to the evening, in that he looked at our website and did some research into the company, to come out with a few jokes specific to our company.
Thanks again for your assistance and I will certainly keep you in mind for future events.

Many thanks Keli
