AUSTRALIA'S LEADING SUPPLIER OF CORPORATE AND SPECIAL EVENT ENTERTAINMENT
BASED: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
What, you've never seen Marty Coffey? As Marty might tell you
"... I'm really quite famous. It's just that a lot of people haven't seen me yet."
In fact most Australians have at some stage seen Marty perform,as he has appeared on every major television show in the country. He is perhaps best known for causing a furor on Ray Martin's Midday Show when he pretended to juggle live kittens with a running chainsaw, upsetting many short sighted home viewers... all in the name of comedy!
Among his routines are the uproarious apple, bowling ball and egg juggle where he eats the apple during the stunt. There is the "dangerous objects juggle" atop a two metre unicycle where Marty enlists the help of the audience in getting started. And of course he likes to finish on his now famous chainsaw juggle (sans kittens for the stage act!). With or without cats his deftness for combining hilarious patter, visual surpise gags and tension building stunts always keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
Marty Coffey certainly has a sensational approach to comedy basing it around juggling - or a sensational approach to juggling basing it around comedy. Whichever way you look at if Marty Coffey has a sensational comedy act.
With his high impact thirty minute show Marty has always been in huge demand as a guest artist for Australia's biggest touring acts. He has also supported international acts such as John Cougar Mellencamp, the Everly Brothers, Thelma Houston and Isaac Hayes. In more recent years Marty, now an Australian citizen, has become one of the most sought after comic performers in Australia's corporate market, performing at events for Mercedes Benz, AMP, National Mutual, Sony, IBM, Commonwealth Bank and Elders just to name a few.
He has entertained at private functions for Kerry Packer, John Singleton and Prime Minister Paul Keating. This popularity is partly due to the large doses of sidesplitting audience involvement, a real winner at functions from small groups to gala balls. It is also the powerful universal appeal and versatility of his show, an important feature when perfection and professionalism are the standards.
Marty's comedy act and years of experience as an entertainer lends itself easily to the role of awards dinner compere. From the unique way he commands undivided attention at the start of the proceedings to the sectacular way he can close the show, the audience is always wondering "What is he going to do next?" The answer is always something even bigger and funnier. Marty first started regularly doing compere work on Open Mike Night at Sydney's Comedy Store in the mid 80's. "The challenge was to break his act up so that he could always use his failsafe stunts and routines to reel the crowd back in after an amateur act "died"."
Possibly the greatest training ground for Marty was where he started out as an entertainer, as a busker in Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco. Here, he would not only have to command a crowd's attention, but organize them into a coherent audience.
If the role of Master of Ceremonies demands:
Just read what these clients have to say:
"I can only highly recommend Marty's performance. He appealed to the audience perfectly and had a many standing ovations. Of course, it was a cocktail party."
"Everyone who attended our dinner enjoyed Marty's performance."
