Wilson Comedian Compere and Host

Detailed description for this Specialty act

Gary Wilson The Clown Prince of Comedy and Irelands leading smile specialist! • One of Northern Irelands leading comedians, comperes and hosts, Gary Wilson is much loved by audiences and his fellow performers. • Admired for his professionalism in any situation, Gary has a vast repertoire of material to suit any occasion or audience. • Gary prides himself on his appearance and it has been known for people to say – “he has a jacket for every joke!” • Topical and current are just two words used to describe his comedy stories about life, love, money, death and anything else that can raise a laugh. • Gary has recorded two best selling comedy albums and is about to record a DVD this year. • Having performed in nearly every provincial theatre in NI, as well as The Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall in Belfast, Gary has worked with some of the leading showbiz names during his career including Jimmy Cricket, Roy Walker, Charlie Lansborough, Foster and Allen, The Alexander Brothers and Charlie Lawson to name just a few. • Other venues include hotels, village halls, churches and open air events. With audience from 20 – 3000 – he still gets them laughing! • Gary has also been tasked to host and compere events that have been attended by the First Minister of NI, The Taoiseach of the Republic of Ireland, The American Consul, Representatives of Royalty and numerous other leading figures from around the world. • Gary has performed right across Ireland, Spain, and Scotland and in Blackpool. • An accomplished auctioneer and fundraiser Gary’s skills have benefited many charities over the years. • Gary also includes some comedy magic and ventriloquism in his act – great for getting some audience participation. • If you can imagine Mrs Brown, Dame Edna Everidge and Les Dawson’s Ada in the one frock – well then you would love to meet Gary’s character Miss Peggy O Dee – guaranteed chaos will ensue when she is on the show! • Gary is also keen to show his vocal skills with a song or two as part of his show if required – he has penned some very funny comedy songs and also enjoys songs from the 50’s and 60’s as well as some country greats. • A great people person Gary , when acting as host and compere at events, likes nothing better than going the extra mile and meeting his audience off stage for a chat – and maybe even a dance if the ladies fancied it! • Hilarious, Adaptable, Professional, Talented, Funny and Reliable – are just some words that have been used to describe Gary over the years.
