Looking to book a comedian to entertain at your next event? NMP Live has one of the most comprehensive and diverse rosters you'll find of comedians available for corporate and private events, encompassing all genres from traditional 'old-time' comics such as Barry Cryer, Roy Walker and Bobby Davro to 'alternative' comedians including Jimmy Carr, Ross Noble and Jo Brand, we guarantee to have a comedian that will leave your audience in stitches, crying with laugher and rolling around in the aisles.
Of course, comedy is highly subjective by nature and you'll rarely please every person in the room - unlike a theatre performance where the entire audience have often paid a considerable fee to watch their comic idol live on stage - at corporate and private events the 'star talent' has usually been selected and paid for by committee, or even may well be the choice of just one individual. The audience is also more than likely to be at the event for reasons other than to see a comedian, and they'll consist of a wide range of ages and tastes - so you need to book an experienced professional and established comic that will appeal to the vast majority of your guests, presenting middle-of-the-road 'safe' material that isn't likely to offend!
When deciding on the right comedian for your event there are a number of other very important considerations to take into account; Are your audience old or young? Laid back and broad-minded or erring on the conservative side? Do they all speak English as a first language or are they a multi-national audience? Will there be 100 people at the event or more than 1000? And will the act be entertaining at a sober lunchtime affair or will they be going on stage at 10pm following a hefty drinking session?
NMP Live engages hundreds of professional comedians every year for all manner of events, so our booking agents are highly experienced at sifting through the small but important details to ensure the right act is booked for your audience. Topical comedy and political satire is often popular for high-brow corporate audiences - such as household name comedians Sandi Toksvig, Marcus Brigstocke and Rory Bremner - whereas visual and prop-related comedy is often well-received with multi-national audiences where they might not understand the subtleties of sarcasm, or appreciate colloquial undertones. In this case opt for visual or musical comedy such as Steve Rawlings, Rainer Hersch or Michael Winslow. Perhaps they'll appreciate a character comedy act with scripted sketch pieces instead of rapid-fire one-liners? Or maybe something along the lines of surreal or improvisational comedy would better suit your needs?
NMP Live provides comedians and comedy acts for all manner of events, from an after dinner star act following an awards ceremony or gala dinner, to booking a complete evening of comedians at a comedy club style venue. From big name acts such as Michael McIntyre, John Bishop and Rob Brydon through to the best up-and-coming unknown names on the comedy circuit, we will work to your requirements and within your budget.
