One of the most versatile comedy entertainers we handle, Barry York has certainly built up a reputation as the ideal act for almost any situation.
A stand up comedian, Barry began his professional career fronting a comedy “showgroup.” The act incorporated comedy and music, and whilst Barry has worked as a solo artiste for the past 20 years, concentrating on comedy, up until cutting back recently, he was still capable of performing 2 hours worth of entertainment! These days, Barry works predominantly with the after dinner market. His clean, yet “cheeky” act, combined with his sharp wit are a match for all audiences, whether mixed, or all male. The sportsmans dinner environment, where he particularly excels, has seen Barry work alongside such names as Jimmy Greaves, Jack Charlton and John Conteh to name a few.
As a master of ceremonies, Barry is equally at home. His clear and easy to understand voice makes him an ideal corporate host, yet his wit and charm lend his style to more laid back events, where the audience may become a little restless! Recently Barry hosted the Caudwell Group Annual Awards Dinner to 2800 people. A daunting prospect to many yet Barry was unfazed.
