What’s the difference between a normal MC, and a character MC?

That’s like asking about the difference between decaf and a regular coffee, or a bicycle and a motorbike: you feel like you’re getting the same thing, but it’s just missing an extra oomph. A Character MC is that extra oomph your event may be needing.

Don’t get me wrong, having a traditional MC isn’t a bad thing. There are many types of events where oldies are goldies. But it’s important to open your mind up, and really wonder, “But wouldn’t it be better to have a character MC?”

What is a character MC?

In case you weren’t not sure, a character MC is a performer who is acting as a character, whether it be an impersonation of a famous personality, or an original character created by the performer themselves. Because of this extra set of skills, you just know that only the most proficient and professional performer can fill the role.

There is a huge range of character MCs, and you may be surprised at how many are suitable for events otherwise deemed ‘formal’ or ‘serious’.

Creative entertainment for events

For example, Award Nights are an annual, serious event, right? But everyone’s dressed up and ready to have a good time, to unwind and maybe have a few drinks, so it would be a perfect opportunity to elicit laughter and smiles. Cue a hilarious, larger-than-life character MC who would not only put all the guests at ease, but keep the night right on schedule.

How about team-building events? Or post-conference events? These are official, result-driven events, so there isn’t room to be silly, right? But think about it this way: team-building exercises are doubly effective when the participants are enjoying themselves while participating. Post-conference events occur after a long day of official work, so everyone may be feeling a little bit drained, and unmotivated to attend yet another event. Again, a vibrant and fun character MC is essential in these cases to lift morale, plus the attendees can feel the extra effort that went into making them smile.

Character MCs aren’t just for corporate events, either. Private events like birthday parties, engagement parties, hens/bucks nights, or even weddings, are also really suitable for character MCs. It gives these events a structure, without sacrificing fun.

Ice-breaker

Then, there’s the fact that these MCs are a character, so the guests feel comfortable interacting with them freely. It’s the same principle with a mascot suit, or a Santa outfit; you probably wouldn’t run up to an average person and give them a high five or sit on their lap, but once they are in character, the awkwardness is completely gone. Guests are more likely to pose for photos, or make jokes with a character MC, and all this translates to a happier, more engaged guest.

Some character MC choices:

One of our most popular host/MC characters is Dick Deveroux, played by the prolific Daniel. He is like a Joan Rivers sort of red-carpet reporter (and is a must for Hollywood-themed events), and his over-the-top antics are suitable for all sorts of events that need plenty of colour and sound.

Then, there’s Randy Mangold. Played by the same performer who plays Basil Fawlty in our Fawlty Towers tribute acts, Randy is described as a prolific Psychic, Cryptozoologist, UFO hunter, author, speaker, storm chasseur and investigator of the paranormal. Short of being the actual centrepiece of the event, Randy is suitable for private events, as well as events aimed at broadening minds…as well as drawing laughs.

There are countless other characters, such as Santa, Dame Edna (impersonation), Big Tony, and Dr Phil (impersonation) just to name a few. The best way to choose the right character MC for you event is to chat with our sales consultants, who will ask you all sorts of questions aimed at providing you the best entertainment. (For more info on what goes on when you call, read here!)

So, raise your glasses – or your phones – and give character MCs a go! They are guaranteed to improve your event tremendously.
