The Three Waiters was established in Australia in 1999 by Mark Bradley and Darryl Lovegrove, and after performing over 4,000 shows in 55 counties, it remains one of the most sought after acts on the national and international corporate entertainment circuit.
The concept of The Three Waiters involves three talented and highly entertaining opera singers dressing and hoaxing as “real” waiters before grouping together to take the audience through a very amusing, yet sophisticated show. The Three Waiters brings an unbeatable combination of surprise, humor, and amazing voices to any gathering.
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. They cover as much of the floor as possible while interacting with the guests, and as a result the guests feel like they are part of the act as opposed to watching a staged show. Picture your next corporate function where 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 burst into an aria from well known opera songs, from Pavarotti to Dean Martin or Andrew Lloyd Webber to Puccini, culminating in a performance of true “Three Tenors” style.
The Three Waiters are made up of the best performers that opera and musical theatre have to offer. Each artist is chosen after an extensive audition process. Not only must they be vocally outstanding, but they must also possess a dynamic personality, with a flair for character-acting, timing and comedy.
