After-dinner speech writing…

So you’ve been asked to introduce or host a corporate function or after-dinner event and…

…you haven’t started the speech and need one from scratch

…you have an outline and need it fleshed out

…you have a speech but would like it polished

…you’d like some one-liners and ice-breakers

Here’s where I can help…

Whether or not you are familiar with the sector or audience you’ll be speaking to, this is not an issue. I will do the research on the latest talking points, issues and hot topics facing them and craft a speech or set of gags that will be engaging, topical and memorable. Clients have commissioned me to write speeches for a whole variety of audiences, including:

As you will see from my About page, my comedy work has been featured on all the major UK TV channels, BBC radio and in the newspapers including The Guardian. I’ve also written extensively for the stage so understand the demands of live performance.

I can therefore offer you the following:

Topical gags

Political or pop culture jokes from a writer who's written topical gags for Radio 4, ITV and Channel 4

Audience-specific gags

Jokes about the sector or industry you’re addressing that will really hit the spot


A tailor-made speech to suit your needs such as conference speaker or host of awards ceremony.

Shows I’ve written gags and sketches for include:

Horrible Histories (CBBC & BBC1), The Weakest Link (BBC2), The 11 O’Clock Show (C4), 2DTV (ITV1), Headcases (ITV1), The Charlotte Church Show (C4), The All Star Impressions Show (ITV1), The Four O’Clock Club (CBBC), Parsons & Naylor (Radio 2), Weekending (Radio 4).

People who’ve delivered my gags and lines include:

Charlotte Church, Russell Howard, Warwick Davis, Matt Baynton, Will Mellor, June Whitfield, Iain Lee, Anne Robinson, Roy Hudd, Andy Parsons and Henry Naylor, Kevin Eldon, Cariad Lloyd, Mark Heap, Anita Dobson, Simon Brodkin (as Lee Nelson) and Jerry Hall.

So whatever the event, I can write you that punchy speech or gags you’re looking for: material that could only have been written for them on that occasion. And all crafted by a highly experienced professional comedy writer. Visit the shop now or contact me for further details.
