I am now tentatively re-filling the diary after the lockdown. Still waiting for more clarification from the Government and Equity. Before you go any further there will be some strict conditions to me taking a booking. Please read this first. At this stage bookings will, of course, be provisional in as much as they can change in response to the local council and government guidance.
I Am Currently Seeking Quality Representation
My name is Garry Desmond I primarily work as a comedian and comedy vocalist depending on your needs. I am currently seeking new, quality representation from agencies in the UK and abroad.
I was previously managed by two different agents over the last 10 years and they were both awesome, however, I decided to go freelance to expand my circuit and remove the restrictions that management placed on my diary.
I also offer various other services more on that below.
The comedy vocal show consists of 3 x 30 min spots or 2 x 45 min spots of;
- Great songs from the 50's to the 80's and an occasional more modern song.
- Original comedy songs in the form of parodies of famous songs
- Silly impressions of famous people
- Plenty of clean or tongue in cheek jokes without bad language.
The Stand Up Show is 45 mins to 1 hour in length and contains;
- Stand up (Available in cheeky, adult or blue varieties depending on your needs)
- Comedy Songs
- One normal song at the end, normally a big number.
Book With Confidence
I am a FULL-TIME professional entertainer and travel anywhere in the UK and abroad to work. (Fees permitting.) I am always early to gigs and as any agent I have worked with will tell you, you can be sure you will be paid your commissions as soon as I receive your invoice.
I use a quality EV sound system for all shows where I am required to provide the PA.
I carry full public liability insurance of £10m provided by Equity.
Feedback From Venues And The Public
Want Demos? You Got It!
Click here to see demo materials. The link will open in a new tab so you do not lose this page. Please forgive the showreel up until now I have never really needed one as I was managed. I am currently filming pro quality demo which should be available by April. The current showreel is just random footage people have taken at my shows but will give you an idea of audience response to my work.
I can also work as compere or actor. I am currently working with Treble Clef Productions providing character narration for "The Everly Brothers Dream" and "The Hollies Story" theatre tours.
I am also very adept at voice-overs and intros should you require those services for your acts.
I am seeking work in Clubs, Hotels, Parks and theatres, I rarely do pubs. I am sure I do not have to tell you that comedy is getting much harder to place well, people under 40 seem to get upset and offended at the smallest of things. I love making people laugh not upsetting them so I am looking for work in the right venues with an average audience age of 40+
My comedy is also clean enough to suit any senior functions such as Christmas parties and will also work in the presence of some children.
Placement Presentaion Nights
I no longer accept football or pool presentation nights for the reasons listed above. Darts, Dominoes, bowling and other presentation nights are not a problem I do plenty of them. Stag and hen are also no longer offered for the same reasons.
