“JK (Justin Karcher) gets it. He’s there to keep the event running smoothly, inject humour where needed, juggle the stakeholders to keep them happy and ensure that if everyone does their bit the event is a memorable one. He’s also a clever exponent of identifying value, humour, research and engagement during the most important parts of a fundraising event – table bingo and the auction. I enjoy working with Karch and I hope you do too.” – Merv Hughes, Australian Cricketing Legend
“I’ve toured around Australia and the UK with Justin Karcher, clocking up over 60 shows. Not only has he been the promoter of these tours but the Emcee, Comic, Auctioneer and interviewed me. Trust is of vital importance to me, and I trust Justin to not only look after me but the host venues we appear at to make sure they have profitable events. I’ve watched the audiences enjoy his work on stage, as have I, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.” – Sir Vivian Richards
“We engaged Justin Karcher to be the Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer for our 2019 Rondo Building Services The Kids Cancer Project Fundraising Race Day at the Gold Coast Turf Club. We raised $63,822! JKs auctioning skills certainly helped to extract the maximum bids on the day.
I spoke to Justin on a few occasions leading up to the event which was very reassuring to know he had a genuine interest in the success of our day. A snag was hit about half way through our event when the race meeting we had sponsored was cancelled. After a quick chat with Justin we changed the format of the day and off he went to engage the audience in some ‘irregular’ fundraising activities, telling jokes, and keeping us engaged and laughing throughout the afternoon. His Table Bingo game and the auction items he donated raised almost $3000 so we made a very tidy profit just off him for the day! Some of the raffle prizes he provided were also a crack up! Thanks again JK for helping us make it our best fundraiser to date.” – Sarah McGeorge, Rondo Building Services Pty Ltd
“I’ve been at many functions, luncheons and dinners hosted by Justin. They’re always organised perfectly and Justin hosts them with great humour, with his auctioning skills always delivering plenty of funds for the various causes.” Matthew Johns, NRL and TV Entertainment Legend
“Justin Karcher runs a tight ship whilst always remaining relaxed and flexible. A great combination of characteristics. Testament to his abilities is the amount of money he has helped clubs and charities raise over the past 20 years (in excess of $25m), and the fact that I have let him manage a lot of my affairs the past 10 years after meeting him in PNG 15 years ago! Jay epitomises what Australia is all about: firm but fair, fun loving, philanthropic and having a sense of cheekiness. Book Justin, you know it makes sense.” – Sam Kekovich, Australia’s Lambassador
“In June of 2019 we engaged Justin Karcher (JK) to be our comedic auctioneer for a delicate cause, to raise funds for the children of a recently deceased friend. Not only did JK donate auction and raffle items to the night but he read the room and adapted his game plan (as we’ve had him MC our footy and cricket club gigs many times before!) to suit the audience and circumstances. Thanks to the generosity of some wonderful Hunter Valley locals and Justin’s skills we raised in excess of $30,000. We’ve struck up a good working relationship and friendship with JK over the years and look forward to growing both into the future.”

"A packed 220 sell-out audience were treated to a superb show with host of the evening Justin Karcher. Justin had the audience in stitches from start to finish. He interviewed Campo very well and his interaction with our fans was quite superb. We look forward to welcoming Justin & Campo back to Llanharan RFC soon". Llanharan RFC
"An outstanding evening with Justin & Campo was held at our club in May. Justin superbly compered the show and quickly interacted with the lively audience. I would have no doubt in recommending both Justin & Campo for an evening and we would love to have them back very soon". Merthyr RFC
“Justin is professional and yet jovial and relaxed as an MC.
He has what it takes to keep a show going – the rare ability to read and understand a crowd and give them what they want while always keeping them wanting more”
Ronnie Kemp – League of their own, Melbourne TABCORP
Eastern Goldfields Cricket Association - Andrea Anderson
“ Justin had a great sense of humor, was very engaging and worked the crowd perfectly. The auctions were just amazing, he was just unbelievable. He was extremely professional, very easy to work with and communicated very clearly with everyone. From the minute he arrived he took charge, which was just great – you could tell he had a genuine interest in our event. We would have him back anytime and are already planning our next event as we are so happy with how it all went”

Kas Low - Mandurah Cricket Club
“The guys were very professional and very generous with their time. We had 110 in attendance and everyone got a chance to shake their hands, get autographs and take a photo. The show was just brilliant and everyone in the room got something out of it.
Justin was a funny bugger….he was such a crack up! He ran the whole thing from start to finish which was great and really made it easy for us to sit back and enjoy the show.
Having this event was really great advertising for our club. Everyone is still talking about it! This was the first event we have ever done and it was a great success. It really lifted our profile and we will definitely have another event in future – I would recommend this show to anyone”
“To whom it may concern,
I embarked upon a 4 week/20 show speaking tour across England, Wales, Scotland and Jersey with Justin in October. Justin was not only the promoter of the tour but the MC, funnyman and auctioneer all rolled into one!
Testament to the high level of professionalism and entertainment that Justin provided, coupled with my own sporting career and anecdotes, is the fact we have been booked to return in May for another 15 shows!
I enjoy working and touring with Justin, and hope to continue the relationship into the indefinite future. I am sure that Justin can help your business as he has helped mine.
