CORPORATE TRIVIA

Marty’s brand of Comedy Trivia has so many elements to it, yet he manages to run it to a tight timeline that can only be achieved through years of stage experience.

Marty adds his great one-liners where appropriate through the entire quiz and also starts each round with his now famous comedy parodies, all focussed on our Covid challenges. Or he can even write parodies focussing on the client’s business or event.

The questions can be tailored to your particular event’s theme or field, or you can decide to utilize Marty’s huge database of general knowledge questions. Or you can provide your own questions for Marty to use if you prefer.

If requested, each round can contain a hilarious heads or tails game to break up the normal questions, where guests can win a smaller prize. These heads or tails games have to be seen to be believed.

There are 3 or 4 rounds of 15 questions. And the final round is all musical questions.
The difference is that Marty takes advantage of thirty years of piano bar experience by actually singing and playing the questions on a piano, live.

Prizes can be supplied either by the client or by Marty. All answer sheets, pens stationery and background music during breaks is also provided by Marty so there’s no extra burden on the event organizer.

His capacity to provide any style of tailored questions, music and lyrics to suit the most discerning corporate client, combined with his 30+ years of experience in comedy and hosting makes Marty Fields’ Comedy Trivia a unique yet reliable and versatile entertainment choice for your next event.

Feedback
I just wanted to pass on my appreciation for you assistance during the recent Sensis Business Series you hosted around Australia. As an inexperienced presenter I really valued your support and encouragement during the series. Your constructive advice really helped me to focus on the key parts of my presentation, shake the nerves, and get the message across to the audience. The feedback I have personally received has been fantastic. It was great working with a true professional, and I had an absolute ball at the same time. Thanks a million. Yellow Pages Online

I can't remember hearing a funnier man. He held the crowd for forty minutes to the level that you could hear a pin drop.

Landmark Wholesale

The response to your hosting of the AAMI Ball last weekend was extraordinary. People have already booked their tickets for next year, so of course we would like to book you for next year as well.

Tote Tasmania

Thanks for your great work at the Derby Ball! I have had lots of excellent feedback in relation to your comedy and MC work.

Cadbury Schweppes

Marty was very easy to work with and an excellent choice for our event. He livened up the room and thoroughly entertained our lunch guests, who were politicians, sponsors and clients important to the North Queensland Cowboys. We received great feedback on his performance and would recommend Marty for any corporate function.

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys

Marty was fantastic and exactly what we were after. We found him to be very professional, adaptable (thank goodness because of the event nature) and obviously funny (he read the audience really well and finished at a perfect time!) Happy to recommend him for future events. Thank you so much for your patience with the event info!

Hi Event Management

Marty was very funny, he read our audience very well and was very well received by them. I received great comments about his performance from our guests.

Atlas Copco

I just wanted to pass on our team’s appreciation for the way you handled that heckler at our event on Sunday night. I have seen comedians rip people to shreds, and while it may be ok in a smoky pub, at a corporate event it doesn’t fly. But what you did was highly professional and well handled. You didn’t make fun of him, only of the things he said. You preserved his dignity when he clearly didn’t deserve it and most importantly intertwined it into your performance without missing a beat, allowing the rest of us to continue to enjoy the show. As you said to me afterwards, in a corporate environment you never know who you’re dealing with so you err on the side of caution. What you didn’t know was he was actually one of the directors and essentially the boss. You made the absolute most out of a tricky situation and I have not seen it done as well. I felt I should pass on this feedback as it was widely voiced on the night after you’d gone. Congratulations and I’m certain we’ll see you again soon.

SCTV

Marty did a great job - jumping in to help out at the last minute when our booked MC fell ill. Marty conducted himself professionally and had the audience in stitches right from the start.

Master Builders Association

Fantastic night. Marty Fields is a funny man, and entertained a group of 200 footballers. Not an easy task but he pulled it off spectacularly.

Queensland Police Service Australian Football Club

Marty is an excellent entertainer, but also a lovely man. Very polite, and appreciative.

Mt Isa Chamber of Commerce

Marty proved to be a great choice for our sponsors, directors, staff and guests. His warm and vibrant personality shone through whilst thanking our sponsors reading a brief description regarding their company. Marty then introduced and assisted our directors in handing out our awards in an extremely professional manner. Marty's comedy routine was extremely funny and well received and was appropriate to the audience. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Marty, a true professional, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to MC or perform at a corporate function or any other function for that matter that required a true professional with a quick wit.

Fletchers

Marty is an excellent entertainer, but also a lovely man. He was very polite and appreciative.

Mt Isa Chamber of Commerce

Thank you for your recent efforts as our M.C. You controlled the event, cutting a path between propriety and hilarity. And all new material! Everyone’s been raving about you. Cadbury look forward to a long association with you.
