More Information

A fresh and relatively new comedian, Pete is often described as a “thin” Johnny Vegas! Original clever comedy, clean but suited to mainstream audiences, Pete is currently making his name on the after dinner circuit.
His real talent is personalising the act to suit each event and ensuring that characters from the room are included in the show (without offence of course!) and delivering a dry, dead pan speech
to the audience.
Pete has worked alongside many of the ‘big names’ on the circuit and some of the friendships he has formed with the nation’s most prominent sportsmen are testament to his personality.
He is an ideal person for sportsmen’s dinners, benefit dinners, testimonials or events to recognise sporting achievements. Pete is a very funny and competent Master of Ceremonies. Extremely professional in his approach, he is instantly likeable and has a great rapport with his audience thanks to his dry sense of humour and witty ‘off the cuff’ remarks which are delivered in a
unique but non-offensive manner.
One of the hardest working comperes on the circuit, he will personalise his act to suit the function. Be it a sports dinner, corporate event or charity function, he will make the night run smoothly and also excel in raising funds through auctions, games and wacky ideas.

”Pete Emmett did an amazing job for us, a massive thank you. He had everyone who attended in stitches and I couldn’t believe how much money he helped us raise for Motor Neurone Disease. I can guarantee if you book Pete that everyone will have an enjoyable time with Pete and it will be a huge success. Thanks again” Sarah Lewis, Motor Neurone Disease Association. 2016

Pete Emmett did a great job for us, thank you. He was good company throughout the meal and his act was nicely tailored to our evening. A good choice.

“Pete is a hilarious comedian who I have seen in action on many occasions. He is a very likeable and talented young man who can alter his act to suit the audience, a rare talent indeed. His ‘This is your life’ for me was so funny but also very moving and something I’ll always remember. It’s nice to listen to a comedian who can make people laugh without being rude or offensive”.

Mike Stevo Stevenson , Sky Sports Commentator

“Audiences will always have an enjoyable time with Pete. He will help any event go with a lighthearted swing and loads of laughter. An evening with Pete is a guaranteed success.

Senior Fundraising Manager, Holly Bank

The evening went splendidly with Peter giving us an hour and a quarter of jokes and stories from his repartee. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks once again.

We all love having Pete as our compere / comedian for the evening he is very funny and researches about the charity

I would say for any event he is amazing, you can tell him I said so.
Lynn Duffy St Helens RLFC 4th July 

Our charity dinner last Saturday went so well – and I can honestly say that Pete was fantastic ! I have worked with Pete at previous events (I worked on Jon Wilkin’s Testimonial a few years ago and we used Pete), so I knew he wouldn’t disappoint. Pete is great to work with – I provided him with a running order prior to the event so we both knew what to do on the night. He was professional but amused the guests – didn’t step over the line at all – and guests thought he was such good fun ! So all in all, I cannot thank Pete enough for being the MC at our event. A true gent and professional and a dream to work with. Best regards

Pete was brilliant and went well with all the company which was of mixed gender. We will certainly be using him again for similar functions as and when we hold them. William R Bass.MSL Property care service

Although it is less than 24 months since Pete was last at the club he was appreciated fully by our audience of 100 .This audience included 30 ladies many of whom were attending their first Lunch with a Crunch and to be fair Pete involved them within his act and they ” lapped it up” enjoying his local humour to the full.

I would be happy to welcome Pete to any of our functions as he is adaptable to the circumstances and opportunities that present themselves on such occasions.

Very polite , no swearing and respectful , a top man and a credit to Halifax.

Richard Turner – Old Brodleians

The dinner went very well and Pete Emmett worked very hard. We had a little problem with a heckler who had consumed to much alochol but Pete handled the situation well.

He also helped out at the very end of the evening with the auction for club funds and his contribution was both funny and successful and much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.

I have spoken to several people who attended the Dinner and all were very impressed with Pete Emmett. The feeling was he assessed the attendees perfectly and kept everyone amused without resorting to smuttiness, just what you need when the average age of the audience is 60+
Many thanks

Tony Elviss. Otley Chevin Rotary Club. Dinner

Pete Emmett was fantastic on Saturday night, his humour and personality were perfect for our event. He had done some research, knew what the event was about, he was early, organised and nothing was a problem to him at all. I think basically he is a really nice, versatile, very funny man, whose ‘banter’ was totally appropriate for the audience. He promoted our electronic silent auction very well indeed, enabling us to maximise our fund raising and engaged very well with everyone in the ballroom, carrying out the ‘Head & Tails’ and all announcements throughout the evening. If I were to require any kind of compere in the future, I would not hesitate to book Pete again.

He did a first class job!

Please pass on our sincere thanks to Pete,

Gillian Reader. Nat Fed of Demolition. Spring Ball.

I wanted to pass on our thanks and let you know what a fantastic job they (Pete Emmett & Dean Windass)both did. This was our first every Sports Dinner so it was important it went well as we plan to do do one every 3 months. Pete in particular was absolutely brilliant and without doubt one of the funniest and sharpest people I have ever met.

I have had several phone calls, texts and emails since Thursday night from people that attended, all saying the same thing and what a great time they had.

I don’t know whether customers normally send feedback, but please pass onto to both Pete and Dean, our thanks and appreciation for their handwork and performances, especially after such a long journey down They were both engaging, funny and sincere and made our night perfect

Matt Bright – Clun Chairman – Westbury United. 

Sorry for the late reply. I’m just getting over Saturday’s event!

I have to say, you weren’t kidding about Pete. He’s a fantastic guy and a great character. He was the best host we have had whilst doing these events; he was caring, conscious about how he was reacting and talking with the audience, and it was a perfect event – in which Pete had a massive part to play.

The next time we have a charity ball, Pete will be the first person we look to book.

Thank you for all your assistance leading up to the event

Scott Bailey, Dawson Group.23/03/17

I was going to drop you a line to let you know that Pete is an excellent comedian. His unique way of telling jokes is very clever and I haven’t seen it done by any other comic before. Not only that but he mixed and spoke to a lot of people at the dinner and didn’t disappear at the end of his set he stayed and chatted. Everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed him and his ability to memorise names of those attending was amazing. I only hope he enjoyed the evening as much as he made sure we did.

I would recommend him to anyone looking to ensure their dinner is a success and want a good laugh.
