Shows Available

Garry currently has several different shows available and when we say he is an all-rounder we mean it. You can hire him for any of the shows or services below:

Comedy Vocal Show (As Garry Mac)

The comedy vocal show is a mixture of jokes, comedy songs and normal songs from the 50's 60's 70's 80's and a few from recent years. The comedy songs are typically rewrites of famous songs which audiences love. There will also be impressions and a little audience participation just to keep things moving.

Stand Up Shows (Garry Desmond)

These come in three varieties depending on your needs:

The Blue Show
A word of warning here BLUE IS BLUE!!! There is bad language and lots of explicit sexual reference. This is not a show for the faint hearted it is funny but VERY RUDE please call Garry for more info on this show if you have any doubts.

Adult Shows
The material for these shows is not so sexual in nature just good cheeky comedy delivered with a little bad language for effect. This show is for adult-only audiences.

There are two completely different shows enabling two shows per year at each venue without repetition.

Family Shows
The family shows have no swearing and no sexual content within the stand-up. However they ARE quite cheeky, they may contain a few near the knuckle jokes aimed to go over the kid's heads. These shows have been performed for various tour companies including Thompsons, Airtours, JMC, First Choice and others during Garry's 15 years in Gran Canaria. The thing to bear in mind is that stand up is stand up, Garry is not a children's entertainer but working in Gran Canaria for so many years has become an expert at getting the cheeky stuff over the children's heads.

This show is the most suitable for working men's clubs with language restrictions. There are two completely different shows enabling two shows per year at each venue without repetition.

The stand up shows will typically include an opening song, a comedy song in the middle and a comedy song at the end. This, of course, depends on the venue and suitability.

Stand up shows are 45 mins to 1 hour in length. Please bear in mind that stand up requires the full attention of an audience, therefore these shows are limited to clubs and some holiday park venues, they do not work well in pubs unless your audience is used to seeing comedians in your venue.

Vocal Show (As Garry Mac)

Performing under the stage name Garry Mac this show is mainly a vocal show with just a few one-liners and comedy songs thrown in. Suitable for all audiences this show is aimed at venues with a limited budget. Please note that the songs will be from the 50's to the 80's so this is not suitable for a "young" venue.
