"The next big thing"

"There’s no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy"

Corporate

"He fully understood his corporate audience and hit the nail on the head when it came to encouraging the transition from the working day to comedy stand-up – from sitting down it took just seconds for the audience to be in stitches."
Jackie Murphy
Managing Director, Flagship Consulting

Testimonials

"Lloyd Griffith was our Guest Host at the Annual Negotiator of the Year Award at Bainbridges this year and proved to be a superb host. His rapier wit and quick snappy anecdotes had the audience in stitches. He seemed extremely knowledgable about our business and must have done endless research, which really did pay dividends. I can’t recommend him highly enough and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any business in the area which is looking for a professional comedian to host their awards ceremony or works evening."
David Acres
Wilkinson Grant, June 2012
"We have booked Lloyd to be MC on several of our events now. From the initial briefing through to the show itself Lloyd is extremely professional, always well turned out and adds value to all the shows he has worked on. Lloyd is open to writing his own material or working with us on scripts that have already been developed, adding his own personality. Every show Lloyd has done has been different, he can do humour or serious messaging, he can warm an audience or host the whole evening. He is a pleasure to be around and consistently fantastic to work with."
Charlotte Duffin
Senior Producer, Google, July 2013
"Lloyd Griffith acted as our MC to host Flagship’s first ever comedy night in on 19 July 2012 and was a storming success. His perfect blend of wit and humour were exactly what we were after for an event that celebrated how laughter and comedy are such strong links between work and play."
Jackie Murphy
Managing Director, Flagship Consulting, September 2012
"Lloyd helped make a special event that bit more special! His combination of humour, song, and a practicality that made him easy to work with helped ensure an Awards event that will never be forgotten!"
Robin Barker
