Biography:

A Versatile Comedy Entertainer

One of the most versatile comedy entertainers on the circuit, Barry York has certainly built up a national reputation as the ideal act for almost any booking.

A stand up comedian, Barry began his professional career fronting a “showgroup” that incorporated both comedy and music into an entertaining routine. Barry has now performed as a solo artiste for over 22 years, and has concentrated purely on comedy for over 12 years.

Sportman’s Dinners & Golf Clubs

Barry performs predominantly for the after dinner market where his clean, yet “cheeky” act, combined with his razor-sharp wit are a match for all audiences, whether mixed, or all male. The sportsman’s dinner environment, where he particularly excels, has seen Barry work alongside some of the biggest names on the circuit.

Master of Ceremonies

As a Master of Ceremonies, Barry finds himself equally at home. His succinct and easy to understand voice is ideal for Corporate hosting, yet his wit and charm lend his style to more laid back events, where the audience may become a little restless!

Recently Barry hosted the Caudwell Group Annual Awards Dinner to 2800 people. A daunting prospect to many, yet Barry was unfazed.

Reviews:

“His act was very clean, nothing offensive was said….very professional and entertaining. We would not hesitate in using him again.”

Calverley Utd Ex players – age range 20-65, mixed.

“A huge thank you for your professional services at our awards night in January…Everyone had a superb evening. I know from bitter experience that our guests have seen off at least one top named entertainer and made others wish they were somewhere else.

By saying that I want to emphasise what a good job you did. You provided the perfect style required to make the events swing, proffering well timed introductions and subtle humour for our speakers and Lenny Henry
