Pete has an excellent sporting knowledge having worked in sports journalism for a number of years. This knowledge has led to him hosting major sporting events where his interviewing style guarantees intriguing questions and plenty of humorous banter.

 ''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 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.

Richard Head. Yorkshire Gentlemens Cricket Club. 12.11.15

“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

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.

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.

Our charity dinner last Saturday went so well - and I can honestly say that Pete was fantastic ! I have worked with Pete at previous events (I worked on Jon Wilkin's Testimonial a few years ago and we used Pete), so I knew he wouldn't disappoint. Pete is great to work with - I provided him with a running order prior to the event so we both knew what to do on the night. He was professional but amused the guests - didn't step over the line at all - and guests thought he was such good fun ! So all in all, I cannot thank Pete enough for being the MC at our event. A true gent and professional and a dream to work with. Best regards

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

 

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.

The dinner went very well and Pete Emmett worked very hard. We had a little problem with a heckler who had consumed to much alochol 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. 20.11.2015

 

 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+
Many thanks


Tony Elviss.  Otley Chevin Rotary Club. Dinner 12.2.2016

 

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.  12.3.2016

 

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 - Clun Chairman - Westbury United. 04/02/2017

Sorry for the late reply. I’m just getting over Saturday’s event!
 
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.23/03/17
 

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 25.04.17
 
‘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 27.06.17
 
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. 27.06.17
 
        The event went really well and we have raised a total of £1,500 for The Celtic FC Foundation. Pete was very good entertainment. He mixed well with the guests, had good clean jokes and made people laugh. He made a key contribution in our shirt auction which raised £400. Everyone liked him.
