“Australia’s Funniest, Most Engaging MC”
Why Your Event NEEDS a Hilarious, Engaging MC
Psychological studies show that, if you can get people into a happier, more engaged mental state, they listen and remember up to twice as much.
When you book an MC, you want to know that they have the experience to handle any situation, no matter what it may be. Marty was an Aussie comedy MC working full time in the UK, so he can pretty much handle anything and keep your event moving along.
His MC style and energy is contagious and his clients just love him, as one client said “Marty just gives off this amazing approachability that works for scientists and truck drivers. As soon as he opens his mouth you just want to ask him home for a barbie.” He is flexible and easy to work with, he fully commits to every event he is booked for, providing creativity and ideas to help the event flow effortlessly.
Marty Wilson has been engaged as the MC for large-scale events across Australia and Asia, his vast experience and knowledge of events protocol and operation is a great asset for any event coordinator.
So, if you need a multitasking, pleasant, quick off the mark, fast on his feet, humorous, great to work with MC… Marty Wilson is the right choice for your event.
“The role of MC is – incredibly – often left until last when planning a big event. It’s an extraordinary misreading of priorities, particularly when you consider an MC will make or break an event’s success. After the content and agenda, the MC is probably the most important decision and organiser can make. And it shows when the wrong person is chosen – someone who can’t read the crowd, is heavy handed, or just tries too hard.
Marty Wilson is someone I’ve seen perfectly nail the delicate balance of the MC’s true role – to orchestrate, not dominate; to give presenters a head start, not set them up on a high wire; and to mould an event into a continuous whole, rather than a series of set pieces. Marty seems effortless in his approach; his experience as a comic was honed in front of some of the toughest audiences in the world, and it shows. He’s great at putting the crowd at ease, pushing the boundaries to break down the walls, and getting audience members to connect with each other and to the speakers. He distills the meaning and the objective of an event, and accelerates the process of its participants getting there.

“When it comes to MC’s Marty Wilson has all the skills. He got the crowd up when we were a bit flat in the morning, he settled them down when they were getting a bit rowdy at our Awards Dinner, and he made sure they were focussed and ready for our speakers. Marty expertly chaired our debate and even interviewed our sponsors on stage making them all feel comfortable and look confident. Whether you’re after an MC, a facilitator, or just someone to keep the energy flowing, Marty Wilson can do it all.”

“I’d recommend Marty Wilson as an awesome MC for any event. He is calm, professional, incredibly easy to work with and instantly bonds with the crowd. He’s also flexible and happy to take on any challenge – at our event he actually compared two rooms at once, with the second staggered 15 minutes behind, and you could tell he loved he loved it. You can see all those years working as a comic in the UK as soon as he’s up on stage.
Where he gets his energy from I don’t know, but he has a sixth sense for knowing how to transfer it to the crowd and keep your conference bubbling along. When you add to that his ability to do one of his own keynotes, that slot in anywhere on your program, he is also incredible value for money.”
Louise Chamberlain, Director of Marketing
“Marty kept the entire evening moving along with his humour, while maintaining the focus on the fund raising purpose of the function. He read the night well, kept everyone engaged and he made an important contribution to the success of the evening.”
Max Gosling, CEO
“Thank you Marty Wilson, MC Extraordinaire. You ran the night seamlessly, took a noisy, rowdy crowd and controlled them beautifully and left all our members feeling so warm and welcomed.
The UK Comedy Club Joke Competition was something I’ve never seen an MC do before, it was an absolute hit with the crowd, you engaged with everyone in the room, got heaps of laughs and made them all feel part of the act.
Your consummate professional attitude took so much weight off my shoulders, allowed me to actually enjoy myself, and helped make our night a huge a success – the Board, CEO and guests all raved about the night and your MC skills. Feedback included compliments on how the event was kept running to a tight schedule and that you were very entertaining and comical – great praise indeed! I will be happily recommending you to event organisers in my circle and I hope we can work together again soon.”

“The light hearted yet thoughtful approach was the highlight of the conference. We are delighted with the extremely positive feedback we have had.”

“How can we ever thank you enough? You absolutely made the evening with your comic genius and MC skills. We are still receiving glowing comments from our guests! Not sure whether it was your self-deprecating style, or perhaps the amount of alcohol consumed by our guests, but you were in fact relegated to what one might call ‘Superhero without the mask’ status… Wendy and I have both been asked many times post the dinner: ‘Who was that man? He was absolutely brilliant!’
We are so very grateful for everything you did for us, all the time and energy you devoted both pre and during the event to ensuring the flavour of both your MC duties and your keynote speech surrounding your experiences and insights as an author, fitted perfectly with the nature of the evening and guests. You pulled together every part of the night (and at times a rather rowdy crowd) with humour and style ensuring everything ran perfectly. Event organisers should have you on speed dial!”
