A couple of showcase reviews....

"The embodiment of the less is more school of comedy, Mansfield has a sharp observational eye for what’s going on around him and his understated wickedness is impressive. No doubt any hecklers would quickly be put to the sword by him. His deadpan patter is entertaining and he is also very nifty on the sax, as he showed later when blowing along to Luther Vandross". - Derek Smith, The Stage


"Time then for compere Simon Mansfield, who had done a stirling job so far entertaining the audience and acts he was introducing with his dead pan but genuinely funny asides and wind-ups, to have his own spot. Taking off his MC’s hat, the ex-army musician proved a fine sax player and vocalist, in the process covering Curtis Stigers' I Wonder Why.
He has an interesting personality, a genuine quirky, comic talent and is a fine instrumentalist - bookers looking for a compere who’s different and better geared to younger audiences need look no further". - The Stage
