Don Reid

After Dinner Comedian | Stand Up Comedian |

The list of theatres Don has worked in, probably is second only to the great man himself “Ken Dodd” with whom he has worked with on many occasions over the last 25 years, and too long to list here.

Star performers he has supported include household names such as “Barbara Windsor”, “Russ Conway”, “Vince Hill”, “Val Doonican”, in Cabaret, Theatre, and Music Hall.

Don has produced, directed, and starred in many shows, successfully and one not quite so, that resulted in my bankruptcy and the loss of my house, but that is another story. He has written material for people so varied; from John Conteh and Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, to Ken Dodd, for his appearance on the “1999 Royal Command Performance”. He also received the rating as Britain’s Number one production comic a few years ago, from the top producers at the time.

Comedy, fire eating, juggling, sword swallowing, have all been given that touch of comedy magic by Don over the years. Nowadays Don works extensively on the after dinner circuit and cabaret circuit. He is also always in great demand for corporate events, rotary dinners, round table dinners and golf day dinners.For a number of weeks each year he also works on the Arcadia and Oriana cruise liners for P & O, on Fred Olsen Lines and Air Tours.

Don also produced the video “Take Courage I Did !” which was a comedy tribute to his brush with a Granada 2.9. Ghia which came off worse as it’s scrapped now.
