Why You Will Love Marshall

“Hi Marshall. I just read your commentary script. It is absolutely brilliant! Can’t wait to hear the delivery.”

Jonna Brewer
Host, CBC Information Morning

“I wanted you to know that we are still in hysterics after today’s show (Lucien). It was absolutely hysterical and Marshall Button, once again, did a brilliant job. To remember all those lines for several hours is simply amazing. According to my husband, Terry, he said it was his favorite of the whole season and we still continued to laugh over dinner at his jokes.. He really deserves a huge applause and if, and when, I wish we could go back and see the ones we missed. We saw the one in Florida which was also brilliant I know it is a lot of work, but I really hope he has another one in the making.


Audience feedback letter

“Thank Marshall for the excellent time we had. We had nothing but positive compliments about the show. Time passed too quickly. Could not believe that an hour and forty minutes passed so quickly. Total enjoyment. Thank you

“Button is bilingual, but his alter ego Lucien speaks in humorous Franglais, mangling words and phrases for comic effect. Button has a loving relationship with language, throwing in quick one-liners and astute observations like the older you get, the more cowboy music makes sense.

Both Lucien and Button are very clever, and their down-home humour contains words of wisdom that will resonate with audience members.”
