Mark Lanahan - Entertainer & Host
Amongst my many jobs I was a Hotel Manager in London and Security Officer & Steward at The Royal Albert Hall for over 8 years. I changed my life to follow my dream of Acting and Singing and in 1994 trained at the prestigious Drama Studio London.
My most notable straight acting role was at the Royal National Theatre as ‘Launce’, along side my dog Norm as ‘Crab’ in ‘Two Gentlemen of Verona’.
I appeared regularly at the Players Theatre Old Time Music Hall in the West End; Principle artist in Operas such as 'I Pagliacci' & 'De Fledermaus'; and have appeared in TV commercials and toured in plays all over Britain and Europe.
In 2000 I started singing with the original surprise singing waiter act ‘The Three Waiters’ when it arrived on our shores from Australia, singing for royalty, heads of state and all manor of celebrities such as Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Wayne Rooney and to such far flung places as Dubai, New York, the Seychelles, South Africa.
Through my career I have been involved with just about every event situation from escorting HRH the Queen and dignitaries, to being Father Christmas!
I bring all this experience to make your day unique and special.
