Up to an hour's comedy is £250. A one-handed full show/private event is £500 - because those really do take a collossal amount of energy and work! AND if you've got an event that would prefer several different comedians to appeal to different tastes, I'm part of a group of comedians in the South West who regularly work together at festivals - all of us are competition finalists at the very least. Up to four of us at a time would be happy to put on a show for you - and we have varying age-range too. Cost for that would be about £700 but it would be worth it so that everyone has a good time. Feel free to enquire by message with no obligation at all. Thanks!
Usually just me - but if you need three or four comedians then it would be from the following list: Sandi Smith, Melanie Drew, Richard James, Christian Russell-Pollick, David Hoare, Dorian Wainwright, Mark Dennet, Richard Jay, Darcie Silver.
Maggy Whitehouse is a maverick priest, stand up comedian and BBC radio Devon presenter. She’s grey haired, she’s feisty and she does not do fluffy. Think Father Ted but in a slightly better cardigan. ‘Brilliantly subversive’ — Chris Brooker, Bigmouth Comedy. Maggy began stand-up at the age of 56 and was a finalist in the 2016 Bath Comedy Awards and the 2015 Funny Women Awards. Adam Hills said, ‘Ridiculously funny - You drink before you go on stage?’ She is an independent Catholic priest (for real) and specializes in taking the piss out of religion from inside the box. Steve Bennett from Chortle wrote, “A witty presence, acknowledging her unusual place in an atheist-dominated comedy circuit, with an excellent comeback to hecklers.” Paul Tonkinson said, ‘Funny, warm and strangely inspirational. Gives me faith in comedy.’ Both Maggy’s mother and her Bishop think she should get a proper job.
"What do you call a vicar who has you crying with laughter? Maggy Whitehouse. Western Morning News."

"Maggy Whitehouse, a vicar (yes, you heard right) who does a totally accomplished, wry and witty routine on the difficulties of religion, that would probably have got her burned at the stake 400 years ago.Though, of course, they wouldn’t have let her be a vicar then.

"Maggy Whitehouse is one of the most unique, distinctive & brilliantly subversive acts I've seen in years. Essential booking. Oh and funny. Very funny."
