What we're all about

About Us

The Classic Comedy Company is a corporate events management organisation run by a number of experienced Australian performers and qualified events management staff.  At the CCC we firmly believe that the best people to organise your function are the ones who know the industry inside out. 

With a host of Comedians, MC's and Sportspeople at our fingertips, we can provide you with a personality for any event. From our humble beginnings in 2006, the CCC has gone from organising small comedy and sportsman’s nights to providing corporate entertainers Australia wide. 

There is no job too big or small for us, whether you require an MC for your next corporate event, a comedian for your football club luncheon or a sportsperson for a fundraiser.

The Classic Comedy Company prides itself on old fashioned professionalism and we are always available to answer any questions you have in the lead up to your big event. We understand that event organisation often takes place outside of business hours so we to make ourselves available during these times. We are more than happy to answer any questions in person, by phone, text message or email. We can even put you in touch with the talent if you require material tailored to the occasion. 

Not only will the Classic Comedy Company provide you with the performers, we are also able to locate a suitable venue, set up quality sound and lighting equipment and we’ll even design and print posters and tickets for the big show. 

At the Classic Comedy Company we know there can be a huge stress when hiring a corporate comedian so we endeavour to take the stress away by adhering to our company motto “easy to work with”.
