Geoff Whiting

Geoff Whiting, the founder of Mirth Control Comedy, is an accomplished and vastly experienced comedian in his own right.

 

Making him a uniquely placed person for booking comedy for your corporate function, regular comedy night, charity fundraiser or wedding.

This year Geoff celebrates 20 years on the stand-up circuit. During which time he has established himself as a comedian and popular compere. His funny, strong, versatile act lends itself to any occasion. He has a wealth of experience in working at all the notable comedy clubs in Europe and many corporate and private events with audiences of 12 to over 1,000 people.

When he's not performing, Geoff book's other comedians into comedy clubs and has had the pleasuring of seeing many new acts, such as Jimmy Carr and Sarah Millican, build their careers over the years.

Geoff has supported Michael McIntyre, Harry Hill, Dara O Briain, Omid Djalili, Lee Mack, Ross Noble, Rhod Gilbert, Milton Jones, Micky Flanagan, Noel Fielding and Lee Hurst.

He has made regular appearances on TV and radio, as well as being an excellent TV warm-up having cut his teeth on a series of the BBC's Shooting Stars. After overcoming a fear of flying Geoff is now performing at comedy clubs and corporate events across Europe: from Budapest to Guernsey.

Geoff is one of only a handful of comics worldwide to have performed stand up comedy in a pod on the London Eye (for BBC: The One Show) and was the first English speaking comic to ever perform at Club 99 in Bucharest, Romania.

Testimonies

"Geoff Whiting takes the stage with consummate ease and works the audience like a miner at the coal face, digging out nuggets of information to fuel his comedy." - Independent on Sunday

"Geoff Whiting was the perfect compere. His lack of ego, his audience technique, and, of course, some great material, were a perfect warm-up for the main-billed acts." Funny.co.uk

"...a master of the 'That's so True' type of humour. He ad-libbed brilliantly and hooked the audience." Evening Standard

 

" He is one performer who just gets better every time I see him and his merciless ribbing of various audience members had the room crying with laughter " - The Guernsey Press

"...wonderfully confident, highly entertaining..." Scene Magazine Bristol

"We recently hosted an extravagant corporate party at the Oxford Belfry Hotel, for over 130 valued guests and customers. As well as singers, dancers and professional cocktail makers, we employed the services of Geoff Whiting – primarily as a stand up comedian but also as compere and host for the evening.

We were most impressed with Geoff’s performance and professionalism and would gladly recommend him for this type of work. The audience on the night were pretty tough, but despite this he was a storming success and worked the crowd with confidence.

With only a few minutes briefing, Geoff handled his compere duties with ease, ensuring a seamless link between the many audio/visual and award presentations.

We would happily employ him again for corporate events, as he is not only professional but also very funny!"

The Marketing Team, Unique Distribution

"This is just a quick note to say how pleased we were with your set in Nottingham. It was a bit of a gamble for us to go for a comedian as we have not done this at our conferences for many years.

It was a really entertaining set, pitched at exactly the right level and you had the audience on your side within seconds. I was pleased with the way you worked the ‘Driver Hire’ references into your material without going over the top or spoiling the flow of your original material. I guess this comes down to a combination of natural talent and your professionalism in preparing thoroughly for the event.

I’ve had lots of really positive feedback from the conference delegates about the evening and you definitely made a major contribution to its success.

Thanks again – it was great fun!"

Richard Owen-Hughes – Group Marketing Director, Driver Hire Conference

"At On Screen Productions we are involved with a good number of corporate events each year for large UK companies on the whole. I have utilised the services of Geoff Whiting, stand up comedian on three occasions and he has been a huge success each time.

He has been equally well received as a host and a stand up comic at these corporate events and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any event. I have found him highly professional and versatile in terms of tailoring his act to the particular audience he is working with.

If you wish to call me to discuss any aspect of his work I would be delighted to confirm this information."

Richard Cobourne, On Screen Productions Ltd

"Geoff was our compere on the night and came across as warm and likeable, the kind of person that audiences trust. Using notes given to him about the senior managers, he was able to personalise his comedy and was so funny, it went down a storm with the audience of over 100 people. It was really great to deal with someone who was professional and made things easy for me. The feedback from the partygoers was all positive and most of them said it was the best Christmas Party they have ever been to. This is directly linked to the quality of the comedy set and we would definitely use Geoff in the future and recommend him to other people too."
Julie Taphouse, SSE

"I booked Geoff for a charity event I was organising at Watford Football Club. From the moment we agreed the booking I knew i’d made the right choice. He was professional from the word go, the communication was good and it was clear Geoff took the event as seriously as I did.

The actual event went really smoothly and Geoff managed to work with a difficult room layout whilst engaging and entertaining the crowd with his set. His improvision skills were fantastic by the end of his set the room was full of laughter.

I’d have no hesitation in booking Geoff again and am looking forward to seeing him perform at a comedy club soon."
