Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).

One of the UK's top comperes, Windsor is a first class host with a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in any room.
By transferring his street experience of audience control and off-the-cuff humour, Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.
