How much space will a Compere need at your event?
A public speaker may request a raised stage which will add to their performance, but the stage will not have to be huge, so we suggest dimensions of 3 metres x 3 metres.
What equipment and set up requirements do Comperes need?
As with most artists who sign up to Entertainersworldwide.com, a Compere will provide all of their own equipment. You may want to enquire if an artist needs a PA to amplify their sound, in which case we would advise to use our easy to use messaging service to find out. We do ask that each performer gets a backstage area in which they can prepare for the performance ahead. If your venue does not have a backstage area, then we kindly ask that you enquire with the venue to seek an alternative space in which the performer can comfortably get ready to entertain.

Mark Jones was excellent as MC, he had the room laughing most of the evening, kept the whole event running to time (something I was particularly worried about) did everything we requested of him and more, so much so we would like to book him again for our event next year... The feedback was extremely complimentary; we have been running this event for 30+ years using various people as MC they all assured me Mark was the best ever...
