COMICAL CATERING and COMEDY SPECIALISTS were founded in Sydney, in 1987 and 1989 respectively, by DON MURCHISON, when he ceased nation-wide touring of Australia & New Zealand, to be based in Sydney.

Previously Don became well known for comedy, satire, cooking shows, musical novelties (musical saw, one man band, electrified kitchen sink), poetry, plus childrens shows with the Rudi Trudy Rooster & the Spunky Monkey Cookery Shows; performing in most major Australian & N.Z. shopping centres, festivals, universities, campuses, cabaret, skifields, schools, A & P Shows, festivals, company Christmas parties, & on television. Don has three books to his credit, & his mobile animated vehicular sculptures in Australia and New Zealand have achieved international acclaim, featuring in magazines world-wide.

COMEDY SPECIALISTS is now an established company in the fields of Corporate Comedy, witty After-Dinner Speeches, Corporate Impostor Characters, sophisticated Novelty Messages & individualised Acts. They also provide entertainment packages to service the requirements of Conferences, Christmas Parties, Sales Launches and Special Events. Combined with entertainment packages, they can also arrange music, decorations, a photographer, and catering; along with significant and highly entertaining packages for companies on Buses (Comedy Bus Tours) and Sydney Harbour (Comedy Harbour Cruises.)

COMEDY SPECIALISTS offer tourists the opportunity to have a good laugh, while sightseeing in Sydney. Tourists can see the sights of Sydney on a fun-packed bus excursion. The host is a comedian!........& to add to the fun, the waiters & waitresses are also comedians, who dress up as hilarious costumed characters, intermingling / ad-libbing with the guests, while serving delectable cocktail food & quality Australian sparkling wine! (See COMICAL CATERING above!) Comedy Specialists will take your tour party exactly where they would like to go - sightseeing, shopping, to popular or secluded beaches, on a wine trail, etc...... This will not be a stuffy tour - this is a hilarious tour with comedians!......Alternatively a unique and highly entertaining Comedy Cruise of Sydney Harbour (with COMICAL CATERING), enables tourists to see the city lights by night, or the city sights by day, while being thoroughly entertained!

The CHOOKMOBILE-'LIMO' ACT has been one of Don Murchison's most popular acts over the past six years. There is an alternative to travelling from the airport & driven to your hotel in a cab, bus or limousine...Travel with laughter in the Chookmobile!...The whole journey is a show on wheels!..... Tourist couples can also embark on a unique sightseeing tour of Sydney with Comedian Don Murchison, in the infamous Subaru Waggon - the SubaRooster...popularly referred to as the Chookmobile. During this journey of adventure tourists have many fantastic photo opportunities. Don can take a roll of film, to capture, interesting and highly entertaining highlights of the drive. Do not expect this to be an orthodox tour! - There is a fake spider under the sun visor!...& Don may even fake a breakdown!...But its an action packed show-journey that tourists will fondly remember for the rest of their lives!.......If you are arranging a Hens Night, or want your Company Director taken to a conference, this is the only way to go! - Go laughing!!!

Most tourists will be aware of the television show, Faulty Towers. The FOOLTY TOWERS IMPOSTORS ACT was a popular new addition for late 1995.......During reasonable daylight weather conditions, a very realistic Basil look-a-like is rescued from a sinking dingy, by an even more realistic act-a-like Manuel, who sails to the rescue on a windsurfer!.........This could only happen on Sydney Harbour!.............But this is not all...!!! The rest has to be seen to be believed!............& if it is someone is having a birthday, please let COMEDY SPECIALISTS know in advance, because one of the comedians can jump out of a gigantic Birthday Cake, or a surprise Birthday Parcel!

Many foreign couples are now getting married or remarrying in Sydney. Most people take their initial wedding very seriously, but like to enjoy a laugh! To remarry in a foreign country is not only exotic, but also very romantic. Comedy Specialists specialise in COMEDY WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES, with a special show which re-enacts weddings in comedy! Couples reaffirm their vows in comedy, with a comedian dressed as a priest! Novel and spectacular locations include Sydney Harbour (enjoying a cruise at the same time); a mountain top, in the snow, complete with a skiing package; and on the Great Barrier Reef, with the bride and groom exchanging padlocks on each others fingers, under water, in scuba gear, on a coral reef, and then dancing to a band on a deserted coral island! The comedy can be part of a hilarious real wedding too, complete with marriage celebrant, if client prefers!
