Gill Smith
Gill Smith - Comedy Writer & Performer

I enjoy writing speeches, comedy or serious, and can write something to suit your audience, whether you're working with or without props, such as slides or magic tricks. If you want to talk or perform in public, I'd be happy to help.

Ken Canning and Clarissa Experience includes:

  • I've written for the brother of a well known TV presenter, worried that his surname gave his audience high expectations.
  • A mind-reader asked me to write him jokes and work on adding comedy to his existing routines.
  • Two for the price of one - I wrote a routine for a ventriloquist, complete with new lyrics to a well known song, to suit his purple feathered puppet friend - Ken Canning and Clarissa, pictured.
  • Helping a corporate speaker suit his audience - up for a laugh, but without offending the boss.
  • I write and perform my own stand-up comedy.

Maybe you're set to give a wedding speech, and are worried about keeping the guests' attention? Or you've got a presentation to do that needs humour? Perhaps you've got your big break on radio, and want to be sure your audience will laugh? Maybe you want to try stand-up comedy, and you need a routine? Or you're established but need more material? I can help - just e-mail me to say "Hi Gill, I'd like you to write my speech".
