Paul Martell is one of Australia’s leading and most successful corporate comedy entertainers and M.C.’s.
“Paul who?” I hear some of you say!
Well you may not have heard of him, but he has been voted COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR by his peers on an unprecedented 25 occasions at the coveted “MO”, “ACE" & “VARIETY CLUB HEART AWARDS”, the latest being 17th April, 2018. He remains in constant demand and is still one of the busiest comedians in the business due to his ability to continually ‘re-invent’ himself, stay fresh, non-offensive and current.
PAUL’S INCREDIBLE ADAPTABILITY at being able to work in any arena, has seen him make numerous appearances for major ‘Corporate’ events as well as ‘Sporting’ events such as the AFL & NRL GRAND FINALS, BLEDISLOE CUP, A LEAGUE, STATE OF ORIGIN, AUSTRALIAN OPEN TENNIS, FORMULA 1, MELBOURNE CUP FOR CROWN CASINO and SUPER V8’S on the Gold Coast. He has also performed on prestigious ‘Cruise ships’ such as QUEEN MARY 2 and in ‘Concert halls’ around Australia with international legends such as SHIRLEY BASSEY, JULIO IGLESIAS, SHIRLEY MacLaine AND ENGLEBERT.
As a ‘MASTER OF CEREMONIES’ he is continually re-booked at conferences and award dinners such as the PARK TRENT PROPERTIES GROUP whom he has toured Australia with for 3 years as MC/Comedian with JESSICA MAUBOY, SAMANTHA JADE, DAVID CAMPBELL AND LEO SAYER.
PAUL and his wife JANE SCALI, were invited to entertain on the GALLIPOLI CENTENARY CRUISE alongside BERT NEWTON, DARYL BRAITHWAITE, KATE CEBERANO, JOHN WILLIAMSON, ROSS WILSON and NORMIE ROWE.
Paul’s HOAX CHARACTERS are specifically tailored to your business and his brilliant impressions of SEAN CONNERY, MICHAEL CAINE, ROBERT DeNIRO, RUSSELL CROWE, JACK NICHOLSON AND NICOLAS CAGE to name a few, are a highlight of his act.
Proof of Paul’s ongoing popularity is confirmed in these recent testimonials…
“After hosting 4,480 people at 5 Gala Dinners across Australia, having Paul with us was the standout highlight. We have been overwhelmed by the feedback received from our guests at each event about Paul’s outstanding comedy talent – they all think you are Australia’s best kept secret. Anyone who can hold a room over 1,100 people together and have them laughing so loud from the beginning to the end has a rare gift. Truly professional, best ever stand-up routine, wow’s the audience non-stop, and a real down to earth genuine person.”
DAVID FRASER-CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER – CAPRICORN
“Just thought I would take this opportunity to thank you for the great show that you did for us at the Paint & Hardware Legends Club at Crown Casino. This was your third time with us over a number of years, and it seems to get better each time; so much so that the high standard you set makes it difficult for me to select and book other acts for subsequent years. I got rave revues from everyone that I spoke with who had been at the luncheon. Not only for the extremely professional manner in which you performed, but also for the generous and friendly time that you spent with some of the guests..
Until the next time, Kind Regards, Ron F”
RON FLETCHER – CEO
“Thank you so very much for your help in bringing Paul Martell to Newcastle for the Engineering Excellence Awards. It was a great night and Paul’s performance was absolutely perfect for our audience, except for the fact that they probably all have broken ribs now from laughing so much!! As you know we have booked Paul twice now and yet again people were abuzz about how much they enjoyed his show. He manages to have the entire room enthralled and in stitches, and he does this with absolute professionalism and without vulgarity.”
LOUISE DUNCAN – OFFICE MANAGER – ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA
“On behalf of Beacon Financial Group I should like to thank you and Jane for your contribution to the success of our conference. You promised me a “wow factor” and delivered. I also appreciate you and Jane joining delegates for a social drink and chat following your performance. Everyone valued the opportunity to meet the two of you personally and share a story or two; you really went the extra mile. It was a fabulous evening.”
PETER DALY- CEO – BEACON GROUP
“Not only did you keep the “business” of the evening moving along as MC, your feature set was fantastic! We have had rave reviews all around. It makes such a difference working with someone so professional and so good at just getting the job done”
KAREN FAWCET McEWAN – EO – NOVUS FOUNDATION
“The feedback from the members has been outstanding. They loved Paul. Some people want to know where Paul Martell has been hiding; they can’t believe that they have never heard of someone that funny!”
BRUCE STEEL – CEO, S.P.A.S.A (Hyatt, Perth)
“You are brilliant. A lovely human being. And you always put a smile on our faces”
ALAN JONES AO – RADIO 2GB
“We continue with Paul as he runs a tight ship and our audience looks forward to his ad-libbing and entertaining throughout a busy evening that could otherwise be longwinded and boring”
MICHAEL WATERS - CEO, ALSA
“As a comedian with us 3 years ago, you were received by ParkTrent and our clients with such high regard that your movement to MC was a natural progression. Your natural flair with the audience and your ability to connect with all cultural backgrounds has provided a magic evening time and time again. You are a true professional Paul, and a true gentleman personally. It has been our pleasure to have your talent as part of our special evenings year after year..”
RON CROSS-CEO, PARKTRENT PROPERTY GROUP
“John Blackman tonight gave RAVE comments re your act. He worked with you at the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast last week”
MIKE McCOLL JONES- CHANNEL 9 COMEDY WRITER
“Your performance was quite simply the greatest routine I have ever seen live - you were astonishing! Never have I received such feedback and accolades for a performer of any ilk. You stole the thunder... You rocked the room... You wowed Alan Jones and you proved once again that you are the best stand-up comedian in Australia by an absolute country mile!”
