Lester Crabtree - Corporate Comedian Also: MC, Compere and Auctioneer

Lester Crabtree was born in the 1970's and named after the most famous jockey in the world "Lester Piggot." From Lester’s' name you can tell that he is the son of a Bookie, which is where it all began......

As well as a bookie, Lester's father was also a very popular and sought after entertainer in the 60's, 70's and 80's so it was natural Lester would follow.

At a very young age Lester's ambition was to become a jockey, however, the stage beat the stable and at the age of ten Lester performed on the boards for the very first time.
Lester swapped his stirrups for the smell of the crowd and the raw of the paint....yes he swapped his saddle for the lights and wonders of being an entertainer on the stage.

Between the ages of 18 and 27 Lester was a part time showman, and had numerous jobs from a window cleaner, a double glazing salesman to a quantity surveyor, it was at this stage he was signed up and became a professional Comedian.

Lester Crabtree is now a firm favourite in the UK and abroad and he performs in all types of venues including corporate functions, Cabaret, Sporting Dinners, Golf days, Military functions, and Comedy clubs, Theatre, Television and Radio.

Lester often performs at Sportsman's Dinners and has worked with some great speakers including Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno Nigel Benn, Ricky Hatton, Smokin Joe Frazier, Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley, Paul Merson, Jimmy Greaves, Neil Razor Ruddock, Nobby Stiles and John Parrot to name but a few.
Television appearances include: Ant and Decs Saturday night Take away, ITV'S out from the crowd and Sky TV'S Just for laughs.

Lester Crabtree is an outstanding unique comedian with the ability to perform at any type of function and this is what enables Lester to be selected time after time..............

After Dinner we were entertained by your Comedian “Lester Crabtree” who was quite simply a breath of fresh air. Having attended and hosted so many Golf and Corporate outings , I have seen many After Dinner Speakers and Comedians, but not one quite as funny as that young man. He had the audience in the palm of his hand from the word go and still had them some One hour and ten minutes later, with not one blue word in sight.

Rob Hope - Dixon Renault

"I write to thank you for the services of Lester Crabtree at our 33rd annual Charter Dinner this October. Witty, articulate, only slightly bluer than a Smurf at the North Pole and very funny.
He took all the pressure off, as it was obvious he was going to do the business.
I would have no hesitation recommending him to any other Roundtable, or for that matter any other occasion where you want every single person who attended to thank you for a great night."

Yours in Table

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for entertaining our staff on Friday at Loughborough University.

I was slightly concerned to book someone that I knew nothing about but I needn’t have been. You had the whole audience in the palm of your hands – we laughed from the minute you came on and it was hysterical when you picked on the people I asked you to beforehand.

Our staff who attended the conference are still talking about your performance and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you.

We are holding our annual golf day probably sometime in September 2007 - I will definitely be contacting you to see if you can do something for us next year.
