Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Yes, you are entitled to a FREE consultation. Just email me at marc@allwriteonthenight.com or call me and we can chat further.

Examples of other questions have included:

Q: I want to order more than one speech, can you offer me a discount ?

A: Yes. A discount is available for regular speech work or buying more than one speech at the same time.

Q:  I’m not an after-dinner or wedding speaker but I still want help with a speech or gags. Is that something you can do?

A: Yes. I’ve written material for all sorts of people and occasions including: birthday parties, eulogies, and army dining out speeches.

Q: Your speciality is comedy but can you help with a serious speech?

A: Most definitely. I’ve helped with speeches for business men and women and conference speakers. Where appropriate, these speeches can include ice-breakers and light humour.

Q: Have you written wedding speeches for same-sex couples?

A: Yes, I have. My service is for anyone who is getting married and needs to make a speech.

It’s usually within a couple of weeks or less as I like to do several drafts of a speech before sending it. However, I can write super-urgent speeches. I’ve even written a speech on the DAY of the wedding for someone who called me that morning. Just email me for my current likely turnaround time.

  • After the speech is ready, we can chat on the phone.
  • I can also do a version of the speech with “director’s notes” indicating how best to deliver certain lines. There is no additional charge for this advice.

Lots! I won’t list them all but here is a selection:

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