The Three Waiters was formed in 1988 in Sydney, Australia, and their shows have since changed the face of private and corporate event entertainment forever. They are truly one of a kind!

They are the brainchild of Society Photographer and Opera Singer Mark Bradley, who appeared at over 2,500 events throughout a 10-year period before bringing the group together.

The Three Waiters has performed more than 11,000 shows in 85 countries, making them the most popular act of any kind. They are available for private parties, fundraisers, weddings and corporate events.

The Three Waiters show is flexible, with audiences ranging from thousands at sales conventions to a dozen executives in a boardroom. They can entertain any type of audience–from construction workers to company executives.

Following a performance by The Three Waiters, everyone in attendance leaves with one thing in common: they have seen and enjoyed an amazing experience together. The result is an enthusiasm and energy that inspires motivation and teamwork.

As an ensemble, The Three Waiters are the most professional corporate events act in the world. They can read an audience and react accordingly, giving the best and smoothest results possible.

Full Profile

    The world’s most successful corporate entertainment act, having performed nearly 10,000 shows in 77 countries, The Three Waiters involves three talented singers posing as waiters or service staff at an event before unleashing a dynamic show in the style of The Three Tenors. This award winning show of thrilling voices and sophisticated humor has surprised and captivated audiences ranging from royal families and heads of state, to corporate events and private parties.

    The concept of he Three Waiters involves three talented and highly entertaining opera singers dressing and hoaxing as “real” waiters before grouping together to take the audience through a very amusing, yet sophisticated show. The Three Waiters brings an unbeatable combination of surprise, humor, and amazing voices to any gathering.

    As an important part of the act, each performer actually works the floor as a waiter for some time before the performance begins. They also dress and act the same as the “real” waiters, thus giving no clues of what is about to come. They cover as much of the floor as possible while interacting with the guests, and as a result the guests feel like they are part of the act as opposed to watching a staged show. Picture your next corporate function where the evening is running according to plan with the usual mixing and mingling of invited guests and clients. Suddenly, one of the food or beverage waiters burst into an aria from well known opera songs, from Pavarotti to Dean Martin or Andrew Lloyd Webber to Puccini, culminating in a performance of true “Three Tenors” style.

    The Three Waiters are made up of the best performers that opera and musical theatre have to offer. Each artist is chosen after an extensive audition process. Not only must they be vocally outstanding, but they must also possess a dynamic personality, with a flair for character-acting, timing and comedy.

    Often described as “An Event Planner′s Dream,” The Three Waiters has changed the way Event Planners and their Guests view live entertainment, whether at an intimate dinner for 12 or a gala function for 1200 or more.

    Lately, several “Singing Waiters” acts have imitated our original concept of Singers masquerading as Waiters (or Guests, a Chef, a Security Guard, a Guest Speaker, etc). But with well over six thousand shows under our belt, offices in Sydney, London and New York, a long list of awards and a great creative team working tirelessly to keep the act polished and fresh, The Three Waiters is still your best option for Surprise Entertainment!

    Moving toward the future, The Three Waiters seeks to continue achieving its original key objectives:

    • To create and provide live entertainment of an international standard and make it available to events large and small throughout the world.
    • To enhance events through the use of Corporate Theatre, while keeping the focus on the client and their message.
    • To surprise and delight audiences using original ideas, theatrical expertise and creative cunning.
    • To utilize the very best talent the world has to offer, and put that talent where audiences least expect to find it and,
    • To teach audiences to expect more than ever before when they arrive at a private function…

Demo Video


“Passion is our middle name”.

This demo video gives just a taste of what it would be like having The Three Waiters at your event. Nothing appears to be out of the ordinary at first. Suddenly, the head waiter calls for everyone’s attention, and makes an announcement. He completes his announcement with a stunning display of vocal talent.

Just when the audience thinks everything has returned to normal, another member of the wait staff makes an announcement, ending it with his own song. Two waiters are now vying for the audience’s attention. A third waiter makes his appearance and belts out his own tune, rounding out the trio of surprise entertainment known as The Three Waiters. What follows is a funny, sophisticated, and totally interactive experience.


Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


The Three Waiters programs are sophisticated, hilarious, require very little production assistance.

They will enhance your event, but never interrupt it. The Three Waiters are perfect for breaking the ice between guests, even the most introverted audience members will join in and cheer along. Best of all, The Three Waiters appeal to any age or demographic group. With over 6,000 shows under their belt, you can think of The Three Waiters as your event’s insurance policy.

The Three Waiters is an energetic vocal trio of professional performers posing as waiters; they sing everything from Verdi to Elvis. They blend in so well with the other staff, the audience has no idea that they’re in for the time of their lives once they burst out in song.

The original program, “The Show,” is still considered to be the best surprise entertainment show available. It was created by a Society Photographer and Opera Singer named Mark Bradley in Sydney, Australia. Extremely successful and in high demand, this unique program prompted the creation of more specific and tailored programs.

The Show:
The original and still the very best Surprise Entertainment show available, "The Three Waiters" involves three singing waiters hiding in plain sight at your private function before unleashing a dynamic and sophisticated live performance a la The Three Tenors!

Here′s what happens when you book The Three Waiters for your next function:

The event begins: our three professional performers, dressed and behaving exactly like the other staff, greet your guests on arrival - perhaps offering them a pre-dinner drink, finger food, a bread roll or directions to the cloak room. At no time do your guests realise these are Singing Waiters - this is the core of the Hoax: they look like waiters, they work as waiters, but they are The Three Waiters...

Alfredo is the Italian Banquet Manager, a well mannered, experienced service professional dressed impeccably in an Armani suit.

Jean-Marc (the Frenchman) is the charming and understated Wine Waiter; he is dressed exactly like the other staff.

Alfredo makes two short (40sec) announcements before the show begins: one officially welcoming your guests, then later, a second announcement which ends when he sings a huge operatic note, prompting thunderous applause. He bows to the audience, but admits that it was not totally spontaneous: he was bet $50 to sing by one of your guests!

The show commences when Jean-Marc takes the stage and politely announces that another of your guests has offered him $100 to sing a full aria in Italian! The hilarious duel between French Opera and Italian Opera has begun. Jean-Marc′s aria finishes to more huge applause, but Alfredo sends him back to work saying he "will show you how Opera should be sung... by an Italian!" Soon, with a little help from the audience, Jean-Marc and Alfredo agree to settle the debate and sing a song together - when suddenly, a third waiter bursts into the room singing brilliantly and upstaging both the Frenchman and the Italian!

The Three Waiters is a dynamic vocal trio featuring professional performers hoaxing as waiters, singing everything from Verdi to Elvis. It is only at the finale that their true identities are revealed, and then The Three Waiters are gone, leaving your guests cheering!


Corporate Events:
For Corporate and Charity Events, it has been said that The Three Waiters is an Event Planner′s dream. Here′s why...
Corporate Events, Fundraisers, Awards Nights and AGMs - it takes an incredible amount of time and money to make an event of this sort a success.

Think of The Three Waiters as your insurance policy - with well over six thousand shows under our belt, we know exactly how to consistently make your guests feel fantastic! So whether your motive is sales, PR, networking or just for you, your clients and staff to have a great time, it all becomes a lot easier when you have a room full of happy guests!
And at The Three Waiters, that is what we do.

When we launched the show ten years ago a new Corporate Entertainment genre was created: Surprise Entertainment, or Hoaxing. Since then we′ve surprised and delighted literally millions of guests at functions all over the world, but because The Three Waiters is a Surprise Show, we can do almost no mainstream advertising! What does this mean for you? Only that the vast majority of our work comes from positive word-of-mouth from very satisfied customers!

Three Waiters is sophisticated, hilarious, requires very little production, appeals to any age or demographic group and works for parties of twelve or twelve-hundred (or more) people, anywhere there are waiters. The tightly-scripted yet hilarious show is designed to enhance your event, but never interrupt it. Most of all, The Three Waiters keeps the focus where it belongs: on your message, your clients and you.

Wedding Entertainment:
Planning a wedding is a huge challenge. Finding a balance between traditional and new, between what everybody expects to see and what nobody has seen before is extremely difficult. As costs begin to mount, you`re hoping that each element you add will "make your big day perfect". You’re so busy trying to keep everybody happy, you sometimes forget that the reception is supposed to be fun - for you!

What if there was one ingredient you could add - in addition to the decor, the menu, the music - that would absolutely, positively guarantee your wedding reception went off with a bang! One element that would turn a yawn into a cheer, break the ice between generations, between "Bride Side" and "Groom Side" and leave the most restrained of your guests cheering! What if there were a gift you could give your family and friends that would smoothly and elegantly turn your reception into a party without interrupting your running order or taking the focus from where it needs to be... on you...!

Well, there is such an ingredient: it is called The Three Waiters- the original and best surprise entertainment show featuring singing waiters hiding in plain sight at your function.

Sophisticated, spontaneous and lots of fun, The Three Waiters is perfect live Wedding Entertainment for receptions of any size. The Three Waiters requires very little production, works brilliantly anywhere there are waiters, suits a mixed demographic and consistently gets the thumbs-up from Mothers of the Bride (when The Three Waiters sing the finale of "Nessun Dorma" to the Bridal Table, most Grooms cry like little girls!).

Private Parties:
Planning a private party is a challenge - we′re always on the lookout for that "extra something" to make our party unique, surprising, more memorable.

What if there was one ingredient you could add - in addition to the decor, the menu, the music - that would absolutely, positively guarantee your party went off with a bang? One element that would, in twenty minutes, turn a yawn into a cheer, break the ice between strangers and leave the most restrained of your guests standing on their chair, twirling their napkin in the air?

Well, there is such an ingredient: it is called The Three Waiters - the original and best surprise entertainment show featuring singing waiters hiding in plain sight at your function.

Sophisticated, spontaneous and lots of fun, The Three Waiters have delighted millions of guests at thousands of events all over the world. This number is only significant when you consider that we are a surprise entertainment act and can therefore do little or no mainstream advertising. In other words, almost all our business comes from people who′ve seen The Three Waiters, absolutely loved the show and booked it for themselves! Best of all, The Three Waiters is great for parties of any size, requires very little production, suits every demographic and works brilliantly wherever there are waiters!
