If you need to hire a comedian or book performers for your own comedy club night or event we can help. Warble Entertainment Agency books comedy acts ranging from stand-up circuit comedians or TV celebs to arena scale personalities… we can book anyone for your function or wedding. The list below is a small proportion of the comics we have available so please call us to discuss booking comedy for your next event.
How will a comedian work at my event?
If you are booking entertainment for a wedding, corporate function or awards ceremony, Warble has comedians that will perform a family friendly stand-up set, or provide something a little more risqué at your request. Some comedians will even tailor a set specifically to your event, calling you beforehand to get to know people that will be in attendance and provide a performance unique to you and your guests.
What do I need to know?
A comedian needs to be the centre of attention while they are performing. They need a well-lit area (in a dark room wherever possible) and a microphone with a powerful enough PA system that allows the whole room to hear them. You will also need to take into account that comedians are not self-contained, so they'll need sound and lighting provided at your event. By providing the right equipment, your audience will realise that it is a performance meant to be seen and heard and not background entertainment.
A comedians' set will normally last for around 25-30 minutes and should be performed from a dedicated stage or performance area with minimal distractions.
Apart from a supply of water or soft drinks and somewhere they can change, you should also consider how long they will be at your event for. If it's more than a couple of hours they will also require some kind of food refreshment.
How far in advance should I book a comedian?
If you're looking at booking a comedian or comedy act, then you should try to do it as soon as possible. This is our advice for any party entertainer or even when hiring live bands. Many comedians are booked 8-10 Months in advance, especially for weekend bookings. However, Warble work with a large network of performers and can help to fill even those last-minute events.
