There is always a “buzz” of excitement and anticipation whenever Funny-Bones enters the room! Is he or is he not part of the waiting on team?
The true art of a “spoof comedy waiter” is to ensure there is always a continuous jovial atmosphere throughout the serving of canapés or dinner, and to never get in the way of the genuine waiters when they serve the food! That’s why most of Funny-bones work is done in between courses or whenever there is a lull in proceedings.
Comedy Capers of a comic waiter!
Funny Bones will mix and mingle among your guests carrying his stunning cloche, embellished with 5,000 SWAROVSKI crystals, complete with the drinks tray that softly plays music for any type of occasion.
Please be seated!
A delicate ringing of the bell calls your guests to be seated by Funny Bones.
As your guests take their seats Funny Bones ensures the tableware is correctly placed and spaced using a 12″ ruler.
Safety is high on Funny Bones priorities so the level of the table is also very important, so out comes the spirit level.
An over-sized spy glass ensures the table cloth is spotlessly clean, if not out comes his feather duster!
The placing of emoji coasters on the tables giving a look that says…this one suits you sir!
Wacky spare spectacles are made available to those who have forgotten theirs to read the menu.
The comedy capers continue until your guests are seated and the first course is ready to be served.
Funny Bones discreetly leaves the room.
Between the 1st & Main course
The appearance of a 3ft plant with sign “vegetarian alternative” can only mean one thing….Funny Bones is back in the room! “More wine” is the most frequent request Funny Bones is asked for, so he simply inflates a balloon, and then bursts it! Producing a bottle of wine! This can also be done with a bottle of champagne. This illusion can be repeated at different tables.
Whether it’s pulling Xmas crackers with the guests. A faulty salt pot that when shaken squeaks. The making of napkins that vanish in front of your guests eyes Funny Bones’ antics are never ending with no lull in proceedings.
When the Main course is about to be served Funny Bones again discreetly leaves the room.
As your guests reach the end of the main course there is a “buzz” of anticipation as Funny-Bones enters the room…. Great he has more wine!
But try as much as he can, whichever way he pours from the bottle, the bottleneck spout goes the other way! Never mind!
Using three T-towels, which he hands out to your guests for examination, Funny-Bones produces a bottle of water, wine or champagne. (Not supplied).
After much merriment of selfie’s with your guests, Funny-Bones appears with his cleaning kit containing hand wipes, complete with table brush!
Between the Main course and serving of Dessert.
Funny-Bones returns carrying a polished champagne bucket, known as Misers dream, it’s one of the great walk about magic tricks. Funny-Bones is able to produce coins from anywhere! Thin air! A Glass of wine! A candle! Your hair! Glasses! Tie! Even guests ears!
The reaction of your guests is hilarious.
The champagne pail can also be used should you wish to carry out a collection for your favorite charity.
Tea’s and coffee.
Funny-Bones is convinced there are celebrities in the room, so with autograph book in hand goes around in search of the rich and famous.
Hilarious reactions from your guest when he pulls out the photograph from his pocket of who he thought they looked like!
As the evening meal is drawing to a close, it’s time for the bill to be paid. So silver tray in hand Funny-Bones delivers a “Spoof bill” in a sealed envelope (bill inside) to the head of each table…. Watch the reaction on face of the person who Funny-Bones selects to give the bill! This causes much laughter and chatter around the table.
