How to choose the right comedy speaker for your event
Year on year, The Speakers Agency sees a huge influx of requests for comedy speakers and cabaret entertainment for corporate events, award ceremonies and private dinner functions. Ever prepared to offer a fantastic range of comedy speakers and alternative entertainment, we have someone to suit whatever function you are organizing.
Once you have decided to book a comedy speaker for your event, the next step is to ensure that you choose the best fit for your audience. Since comedy speakers vary tremendously in both their content and delivery, the steps to consider are the demographic of your audience and who they are likely to best engage with. For a male dominated audience at a particular industry award ceremony, for example, a comedian such as Jason Manford is likely to go down a treat. Whereas, a younger audience might be more suited to the incredibly popular Andi Osho. For a totally mixed demographic, especially one within a corporate setting, Britain’s Got Talent winner Jon Courtenay is a foolproof choice, since he is renowned for making his comedy bespoke to whatever company, sector and audience he is performing for. Secondly, the budget available is also an important thing to make clear to us, as our comedy speakers’ fees range dramatically.
Be it anecdotal comedy, impressions, political satire or whatever else you are after, The Speakers Agency can suggest suitable comedy speakers to fit your brief every time. We have been supplying comedy speakers to audiences for years, so even if you aren’t quite sure who will appeal to your particular audience, we can guarantee to provide you with advice, suggestions and guide you in the right direction.
Included below is some further information about the comedy speakers mentioned above. However, The Speakers Agency has a huge number of speakers on our roster to choose from and you can view a more extensive list here. It is also worth enquiring about particular talent even if they may not be listed on our website due to contractual terms, as we have been in the industry for over two decades, and no one is ever more than a few phone calls away!
