Hiring Comedy Singers – Tips, Advice and How to Book

Comedy singers can add a fun and slightly unusual form of entertainment to your upcoming event and are becoming increasingly popular with celebrity comedy singers such as Tim Minchin and Bill Bailey making quite an impression in the comedy scene.

What Types of Event are Comedy Singers Suitable for?

Comedy singers put on quite a performance and are perfect for many events including:

  • Birthday Party Entertainment
  • Corporate Event Entertainment
  • Comedy Show Entertainment
  • Wedding Evening Reception Entertainment

What Does a Comedy Singer Actually do?

A comedy singer will put on a performance combining comedy and singing. Many create their own witty songs based on taboo topics, such as politics, sexuality and celebrities. They engage the audience with an upbeat, lively atmosphere. This provides a faster paced and more exciting show than a stand-up comedian, however they do not necessarily delivery on the spot jokes, but perform per-rehearsed songs.

How long will a Comedy Singer Perform for?

Comedy singers generally have enough material to be able to perform a full comedy set which lasts up to a couple of hours, however each performer will have their own performance lengths. It is always advisable to check with your chosen performer before booking if you have any special requests.

How much does a Comedy Singer cost?

The cost to hire a comedy singer will vary between entertainers and other factors may also affect the cost to hire, such as location and during busy periods of the year.

What should I ask a Comedy Singer?

There are many things to consider when hiring a comedy singer and the following questions are all examples of questions you might want to bring up before booking.

  • What sort of material do you cover? (Always let them know if any topics should be avoided)
  • How much do you charge?
  • What length of performance can you offer?
  • Do you have public liability insurance?
  • Are there any special requirements needed for setting up?
  • Are you free to perform on the date of my event?
  • What happens if you are ill on the date of my event?
