The Silly waiter is fabulous, quirky, (un)professional and completely bonkers!

Angela Crittenden, Berkshire


Guaranteed to give your guests a hilarious night of entertainment and a night not to be forgotten!

The set-up starts during pre-dinner drinks where the waiter builds rapport with the guests, at first behaving like a perfectly normal waiter, followed by trips and falls, and other funny and silly gags. As the guests become suspicious of the act, dinner is announced in a humouros way. Guests are then entertained between courses with audience participation, costume changes, trumpet-playing and further gags.

The Silly Waiter is perfect for your formal event, parties or corporate gatherings of all sizes.

Performance Schedule

  • The Silly Waiter will be with you for the whole evening, with a pre-dinner drink routine lasting 60 minutes
  • This is followed by 3 x 12-minute acts between courses

Everything went well from the first contact to the performance on the night. Everyone including The Silly Waiter was most helpful and tailored their performance to meet our requirements. On the night The Silly Waiter was a big hit and my colleagues will be talking about it for weeks to come.

We booked The Silly Waiter as a surprise for a family members wedding and he was absolutely brilliant, he blended in at the start as a member of staff and gradually became more and more clumsy until he reached the point where people were bemused and wondering what on earth was going on. Once everyone had realised he was a ruse, he still carried on in character all day, helping the photographer with the photos and keeping us entertained between courses of the wedding breakfast. Fantastic entertainment and would recommend to anyone for any event. We laughed all day!!

Thank you Warble Entertainment for arranging "The Silly Waiter", EVERYONE loved his act and he is one of the nicest, genuine and funniest guys I've ever met... I won't say too much in this review as I don't want to spoil the act, but this guy is a MUST for any big party... Brilliant value for money and you will be left smiling for days afterwards, genius!

The Silly waiter is fabulous, quirky, (un)professional and completely bonkers! Slap-stick entertainment that completely engaged over 100 guests at a corporate Christmas party event and raised the atmosphere through the roof. Mark himself is fantastic to have around, helped the hotel staff understand what would happen and is just an all round great guy - book with confidence!

Hi Emily, both Vali and I had a fantastic day which was greatly enhanced by both the "Silly Waiter” and the "Rock n’ Roll Dolls”. Mark was incredibly entertaining and performed with great energy and some sensitivity throughout :-)) which was exactly what we wanted. He had our guests in fits of laughter and made what was already a brilliant day even better, very well done him….. The 'Girls’ were fantastic; the look, the music, the energy were all exceptional. They performed incredibly throughout the evening and the dance floor was permanently full which is, in my mind, always the biggest tribute. Many thanks to one and all, With kind regards and best wishes, Richard and Vali

Thank you in your speedy help in booking The Silly Waiter as it was a bit late in the day. The Silly Waiter was a fun guy all day arrived in plenty of time and tricked everybody in thinking he was a real waiter. Kept the party fun all day which is what we wanted - great man who is crazy but fun. Would certainly recommend him for weddings, Chris
