Pete burst onto the comedy scene in 2007 and his unique humour has seen him make rapid strides on the circuit.

This much in demand comedian has already worked alongside the likes of Johnny Vegas, Mike Tyson, Dame Kelly Holmes and Sugar Ray Leonard.

Having started life entertaining at Halifax RLFC, his hometown club, he attracted the interest of some high profile clubs and was snapped up by Everton Football Club and St Helens Rugby League Club, where he still works as corporate match day host. In 2016 he also accepted the prestigious role as host at Liverpool FC, working exclusively to the directors and shareholders of the club.

His versatility means not only can he perform stand up comedy, but has a real skill in interviewing celebrity guests. He spends hours researching and crafts a routine that combines humour and light banter with ensuring the stories flow, and the audience feel all questions are answered. He is a natural as a corporate host / presenter where he takes a similar style to ensure awards ceremonies and fundraising become a real event for the crowd.


“Pete Emmett did an amazing job for us, a massive thank you. He had everyone who attended in stitches and I couldn't believe how much money he helped us raise for Motor Neurone Disease. I can guarantee if you book Pete that everyone will have an enjoyable time with Pete and it will be a huge success. Thanks again'' Sarah Lewis, Motor Neurone Disease Association. 2016
“Pete is a hilarious comedian who I have seen in action on many occasions. He is a very likeable and talented young man who can alter his act to suit the audience, a rare talent indeed. His ‘This is your life’ for me was so funny but also very moving and something I’ll always remember. It’s nice to listen to a comedian who can make people laugh without being rude or offensive”.
Mike Stevo Stevenson , Sky Sports Commentator
"Pete Emmett did a great job for us, thank you. He was good company throughout the meal and his act was nicely tailored to our evening. A good choice.Audiences will always have an enjoyable time with Pete. He will help any event go with a lighthearted swing and loads of laughter. An evening with Pete is a guaranteed success."
Senior Fundraising Manager, Holly Bank Hospice
"The evening went splendidly with Peter giving us an hour and a quarter of jokes and stories from his repartee. Everyone thoroughly  enjoyed it. Many thanks once again."
David Downsbrough ,Elland Golf Club, July 2015
"We all love having Pete as our compere / comedian for the evening he is very funny and researches about the charity. I would say for any event he is amazing, you can tell him I said so. "
Lynn Duffy, Honeyrose Foundation, July 2015
"Pete was brilliant and went well with all the company which was  of mixed gender. We will certainly be using him again for similar functions as and when we hold them. "    William R Bass.MSL Property care service, September 2016
 "Although it is less than 24 months since Pete was last at the club he was appreciated fully by our audience of 100. This audience included 30 ladies many of whom were attending their first Lunch with a Crunch and to be fair Pete involved them within his act and they " lapped it up" enjoying his local humour to the full.I would be happy to welcome Pete to any of our functions as he is adaptable to the circumstances and opportunities that present themselves on such occasions. Very polite , no swearing and respectful , a top man and a credit to Halifax."
Richard Turner  -  Old Brodleians RFC  September 2015
"The dinner went very well and Pete Emmett worked very hard. We had a little problem with a heckler who had consumed to much alcohol but Pete handled the situation well.He also helped out at the very end of the evening with the auction for club funds and his contribution was both funny and successful and much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending him."
Andrew Smith. Annual dinner. Illingworth Cricket Club. November 2015
"I have spoken to several people who attended the Dinner and all were very impressed with Pete Emmett. The feeling was he assessed the attendees perfectly and kept everyone amused without resorting to smuttiness, just what you need when the average age of the audience is 60!"
Tony Elviss.  Otley Chevin Rotary Club. Dinner February 2016
"Pete Emmett was fantastic on Saturday night, his humour and personality were perfect for our event. He had done some research, knew what the event was about, he was early, organised and nothing was a problem to him at all. I think basically he is a really nice, versatile, very funny man, whose 'banter' was totally appropriate for the audience. He promoted our electronic silent auction very well indeed, enabling us to maximise our fund raising and engaged very well with everyone in the ballroom, carrying out the 'Head & Tails' and all announcements throughout the evening. If I were to require any kind of compere in the future, I would not hesitate to book Pete again. He did a first class job! Please pass on our sincere thanks to Pete."
Gillian Reader.  Nat Fed of Demolition. Spring Ball.  March 2016
 "I wanted to pass on our thanks and let you know what a fantastic job they (Pete Emmett & Dean Windass)both did.  This was our first every Sports Dinner so it was important it went well as we plan to do do one every 3 months. Pete in particular was absolutely brilliant and without doubt one of the funniest and sharpest people I have ever met. I have had several phone calls, texts and emails since Thursday night from people that attended, all saying the same thing and what a great time they had.I don't know whether customers normally send feedback, but please pass onto to both Pete and Dean, our thanks and appreciation for their handwork and performances, especially after such a long journey down  They were both engaging, funny and sincere and made our night perfect."
Matt Bright - Club Chairman - Westbury United. 04/02/2017, with Dean Windass
"I have to say, you weren’t kidding about Pete. He’s a fantastic guy and a great character. He was the best host we have had whilst doing these events; he was caring, conscious about how he was reacting and talking with the audience, and it was a perfect event – in which Pete had a massive part to play. The next time we have a charity ball, Pete will be the first person we look to book. Thank you for all your assistance leading up to the event."
Scott Bailey, Dawson Group. March 2017
"I was going to drop you a line to let you know that Pete is an excellent comedian. His unique way of telling jokes is very clever and I haven't seen it done by any other comic before. Not only that but he mixed and spoke to a lot of people at the dinner and didn't disappear at the end of his set he stayed and chatted. Everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed him and his ability to memorise names of those attending was amazing. I only hope he enjoyed the evening as much as he made sure we did. I would recommend him to anyone looking to ensure their dinner is a success and want a good laugh."
Andy Hargreaves. Heywood CC April 2017
‘Pete was very professional and always delivers the right tone for our events. His unique delivery style ensures that he is not like the many standard presenters on the circuit.  Pete is a host we will not hesitate to book again."
Amy Kirsopp. Newcastle Falcons June 2017
 "I came across your website 3 year ago when looking for a compere for our biggest charity event of our calendar. We booked Pete based on positive reviews and we were not disappointed. Pete was professional from the word go. He was friendly, and hilariously funny. Pete kept our audience entertained and we were thrilled with his work. From that, we have booked Pete specifically for the next 2 years running. Pete could turn up with 5 minutes to go and still walk on set prepared and eager to please. We look forward to having Pete come again next year."
Shiree Kerry. Eve Merton Dreams Trust. June 2017
"The event was a great success and Pete was brilliant. I have already had multiple emails from the attendees saying how good they thought Pete was. I have seen Pete at a number of functions and his ability to read the room and pitch his material in just the right way is very impressive. Pete’s ability to involve the audience through hilarious jibes, whilst keeping his ‘victim’ onside is another great skill.  There was a mixture of ages in attendance from 20’s up to 70’s and Pete catered for everyone.I would and will be recommending Pete and will be using him again soon!"
Jeremy Thomas, Deloitte LLP 4/10/17
