With the growth of Corporate
Entertainment one name has come to the forefront, in the field of both function
entertainment and after dinner speaking, that of Adrian Walsh.
He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of comedy enabling him to tailor his
performance to both audience and venue. He
is in demand, not only for cabaret and theatre, but for conferences, after
dinner speeches, award ceremonies, golf/sportsman’s dinners and product
launches. No other comedian in
Great Britain today has a greater sense of occasion.
Walsh has the confidence of experience and amply lives up to the reputation of
being known as:
Working with such international stars as Glen
Campbell, Neil Sedaka, Petula Clark, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Shirley Bassey
and Barry Manilow has made Adrian into one of the most sought after comedians in
Adrian has worked in all aspects of the media
including theatre, cabaret, conferences, product launches and after-dinner
speaking. He has also appeared in many countries abroad including America,
Canada and Africa, plus numerous corporate functions throughout Europe. He is at
home with both British and American audiences making him in demand to work on
cruise liners all over the world.
He has made over
300 radio and television
appearances, most recently as a regular on Today with Des and Mel. He is constantly travelling abroad giving talks to the
world’s largest corporations and he has built a reputation where he is known
as ‘The Giant of Corporate Entertainment’.
MANY NATIONALLY KNOWN COMPANIES HAVE USED ADRIAN'S EXPERTISE OFTEN
COMING BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR - THIS IS WHAT THEY SAY.............
Over the years, we have witnessed the performance of
many after dinner speakers, and have generally been pleased with their
performance. Having said that, none of them have ever received a standing
ovation - which you did following your performance. Our senior Managers are from
every division in our Company, whether it be sales or accounting, systems or
personnel and, as you found, we have a 50:50 split of male and female staff.
Nevertheless, your comedy, without sexist, racist or religious overtones, kept
us all entertained for well over an hour. We can certainly recommend you to
others who require a talented entertainer.
Our annual Dinner Dance last week was a great success -
in large part because of you. We asked you to be Master of Ceremonies and were
not disappointed. You managed, not only to provide one of the best stand-up
routines I have ever heard, but also managed to get us through the prize giving
(with all its usual chaos) and the raffle with the same wonderful sense of
humour which characterised the whole evening. You have set a new standard for
our annual event and will be a very hard act to follow.
I felt I had to write to thank you for making our
Dinner Dance such a huge success. People will be talking about you for months to
come. Your quick wit and professionalism delighted us all. It was such a
pleasure to be able to relax and enjoy the show without any "blue"
material to spoil anyone's evening.
CAR CARE PLAN LIMITED
Jonathon Heap, Director of Marketing
place great importance on our annual company conference. It's the only time in
the year when we all get together to review, to plan and to motivate in
preparation for the year ahead. Like most conference organisers, I am faced with
the annual problem of looking for a suitable speaker. I am pleased to report
that Adrian Walsh did a tremendous job, and developed first class rapport with
the audience, which resulted in an excellent evening. Adrian's quick wit,
coupled with his ability to recall members of the audience are delivered in a
squeaky clean fashion, produced a memorable night.
Your performance after the final evening's dinner was
absolutely superb and was exactly in line with what was required. To receive a
standing ovation was the accolade you deserved, and I would love you to return
for future events of this type.
- Michael Murphy, Promotions and Publicity Controller
We were absolutely delighted with your performance as
Master of Ceremonies at the Top Rank Management Awards. Your stand-up material
was well pitched for the audience and you managed to keep the whole show bang on
schedule, which was particularly important given the calibre of the audience and
All our staff and clients thought you were incredibly
funny, especially involving the audience so well. I was extremely impressed that
you could be so funny without being racist, sexist or blue and still find myself
chuckling about situations which you described even a week later. You really
made the evening a great success.
Everyone was delighted with your performance, which was
the perfect climax to two days of hard but interesting work. We were all so
impressed by the way in which you were able to reinforce the message of the
event. For my part, this was the third time I have had the pleasure of using
your services at the Jewson event, and it certainly will not be the last. Many
of our Managers have asked me to make sure I book "our friend Adrian "
for any future events. I can think of no higher praise.
Your act was the perfect ending to a perfect day - we
heard nothing but praise for your quick wit and humour and I know I wasn't the
only one who would have kept you on stage all night given the chance! Andy and I
were able to relax within minutes of the start of your performance and words
can't really express our appreciation of your hard work and professionalism.
feel that I must write to thank you for the terrific effort you put into our
Roadshows. Their success was due in no small way to your contribution. Your
ability to adapt to different situations and audiences and to generate such
response, particularly at that time of day, is incredible and the professional
way in which you approach your job helped all the ICI staff who were making
presentations to give their very best. Of all the product launches we have done
I am sure that these will be remembered for a long time.
We were delighted with your superb performances at our
new Product Launches. To keep an audience, which consisted of 80% overseas
people from 18 different countries enthralled, for well over an hour, is quite
remarkable. Every one of our customers were loud in their praise of your
performance. It is the fifth time that we have been fortunate enough to book you
over the past 2 years, and you come up with fresh material every time.
Our dealers had a marvellous time and as usual your
fast wit and humour provided an extremely amusing cabaret, enjoyed by everyone.
Even after three years, it continues to be a great pleasure to work with you and
to enjoy what is always a fresh and lively performance, each time.
I feel compelled to express our thanks for your
exceptional performance. You held the attention of 320 people and delivered an
unforgettable and extremely amusing performance. As a client, I would have no
hesitation in recommending you.
SERVICES PLC - David Leibling, Head of Corporate Communications
Many thanks for your contribution to the success of our
Gala Evening. Your cabaret really hit the mood of the evening and rounded off a
very enjoyable conference. Basing your act on every day events and observations
means that it is very acceptable to a wide audience, all of whom can appreciate
I could not let the occasion pass without writing to
thank you for your marvellous cabaret. As you are well aware, the jokes were
well received and your performance was a major contribution in ensuring that our
Dinner Dance was the success that it was.
Nina Gopal, Manager Sales Coordination UK and Ireland
