The Three Waiters

Artist Info

Everyone is raving about The Three Waiters, singing waiters.

One of the world's most successful corporate and private event surprise acts.

The Three Waiters® is the most successful singing waiter act in the world; with nearly 10,000 shows in over 70 countries, it's now arguably the most popular act of any kind for corporate events, fundraisers, private parties and weddings. When The Three Waiters® was created in 1998, the show changed the face of corporate and private entertainment forever.

The concept of The Three Waiters involves hoaxing as real waiters before eventually grouping to form three talented opera singers. The structure of the act is sophisticated yet takes away the seriousness often associated with opera by adding an element of fun, spontaeity and surprise. Because of the vast repertoire and experience of each of the performers the act can be easily customized to suit your particular requirements. Be it a dinner party of twelve guests through to a ballroom of one thousand, the concept has proven equally successful to an audience of football players at, say, a suburban club dinner through to the most discerning opera buffs. 

The Scenario:
As an important part of the act, each performer actually works the floor as a waiter for some time before the performance begins. They also dress and act the same as the "real" waiters thus giving no clues of what is about to come. Picture your next corporate function, dinner. The evening is running according to plan with the usual mixing and mingling of invited guests and clients. Suddenly, one of the food or beverage waiters bursts into an aria from a well-known opera or song from a popular Broadway musical. Your guests are simultaneously stunned by the waiter's behaviour and intrigued by the fact that the waiter sang so well!

As the evening progresses, another waiter effects a similar spontaneous rendition of his own - with matching professional aplomb! At this stage, the collective "audience" realizes that all is not as it seems and they begin to anticipate some progression of the unexpected yet highly enjoyable theatrics.

Just as the two waiters satisfy this anticipation by staging an impromptu vocal "duel," the audience are then further surprised by a "gate crashing" third waiter and the three proceed to "out-do" each other "three tenors" style.
