For over 16 years these fabulous Comedy Waiters have been creating dining havoc. This dubious duo provide speciality, and interactive entertainment for a wide range of events and parties.
In various guises, these Comedy Waiters, unbeknown to your guests, will intermingle with the ‘real’ waiting staff and this is where the leg-pulling fun begins!
The Dumb Waiters pretend to be REAL waiters and interact with your guests, gossiping and talking about everyone in a way no real waiter would dare! Then, when your guests see the Comedy Waiters eating crisps and talking on their mobile phone whilst pouring you wine, everyone will start nudging each other, giggling together and pointing! It’s the perfect ice-breaker for Weddings, Birthdays and Corporate Events! Elvis and Virginia’s odd behaviour, antics and general daftness, will ensure that gradually the penny will drop, and table by table people will realise all is not as it seems!
These ‘dumb’ waiters deliver a dish that is a mixture of ‘Fawlty Towers’ with a dash of ‘Trigger Happy’ nonsense. This duo serve a feast of fun leaving your guests wanting seconds!
Be it a Corporate, Birthday or a Wedding party, hiring comedy waiters has proven to be the perfect ice-breaking entertainment. They have adapted to various situations over the years, including Meet and Greet, Queue Management, Exhibition Stand work and of course Silver Service and standard 3 course dinners.

“Just a quick line to say how wonderful Peter the comedy waiter from the ‘Dumb Waiters’ was on Saturday. He did a great job of keeping everyone entertained. We loved him”.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
