CORPORATE ENTERTAINER ~ AFTER DINNER SPEAKERAWARD WINNING COMEDIAN
One of the most versatile entertainers today, Martin is perhaps best known for his performances from the top table. His ability to deliver a corporate speech to a corporate audience without a trace of smut or bad language makes him without doubt one of the most popular after dinner speakers in the country. Martin has also proved a big hit on the ‘Sportsman’s Dinner’ circuit, and regularly works alongside such sporting legends as Fred Trueman, Jack Charlton, Jimmy Greaves, Bill Beaumont and John Conteh.

Looking at Martin, it seems impossible to believe that his professional career began over 20 years ago when, as an eleven year old comedy impressionist he first appeared on stage. His natural ability to make people laugh quickly guaranteed his progression into stand up – soon becoming a huge hit with theatre audiences throughout the country. As a comedian, Martin has shared top billing in four sell-out summer shows on the island of Jersey, and has since gone on to star alongside such legends as Gene Pitney, Tammy Wynette, Ken Dodd and Les Dawson to name but a few. His talent was subsequently recognised by the Variety Club of Great Britain when they named him ‘Comedian of the Year’ 2 years running.
Today, Martin still enjoys working cabaret, and is always a sought after choice on the Hilton Hotel and Warner Hotel entertainment circuit. He is constantly in demand from many cruise lines, including P & O, Airtours and many other well known holiday companies, where his clean, immaculately presented comedy is appreciated by all.
“Martin had to follow me and Alec Stewart at a cricket dinner, which is obviously a bit like singing after Sinatra and Dean Martin. It was midnight before he got on, but he turned it round brilliantly and had a bunch of drunk, cynical cricketers laughing their heads off. I thought his act was sharp and very funny.” Piers Morgan
TV PRESENTER & WARM UP COMEDIAN Martin has enjoyed a lifetime in television, since his early days in ‘Summertime Special’ to his regular appearances on the ‘New Comedians’.
