We are Excess All Areas

Excess All Areas entertainment specialists provide exclusive, high quality entertainment for colourful and opulent corporate events, office parties, birthdays, weddings, civil union celebrations, festivals… you name it, we’ve done it.

Excess All Areas was born from over 25 years’ experience in programming, promoting and performing in live entertainment by its Founder and Director, Paul L Martin  (named ‘Best Producer’ in the Fringe Report Awards 2012).

Paul founded Excess All Areas to champion innovative, stylish and surprising entertainment in all its guises, whether that’s introducing the Next Big Thing in cabaret to corporate events or writing and directing our annual sell-out adult pantomimes (Time Out Critics’ Choice 5 years running). Paul has acted as an ambassador for cabaret, making TV appearances  and celebrating excellence in the industry by founding the London Cabaret Awards. In 2013, Excess All Areas launched the Cabaret Convention, the first ever UK-wide meeting of cabaret producers, venue-owners and performers.

With front-line experience, Paul and his team know what goes into a great and glamorous night’s entertainment. Leave the blood, sweat and tears to us and enjoy the best entertainment in the UK.

Excess All Areas has the best Little Black Book in the industry – and we’re not afraid to use it. Our astonishing network of performers allows us to give you a selection of the best performers for your budget, event and location, whether you’re looking for a wow-factor performance or a romantic, atmospheric act.

Our priority is getting to know you and finding the right entertainment for you and your guests. Feel free to fuel our imagination with film references, mood boards, colour themes, books, images – the more we know about what you want, the better the chance we’ll hit the nail on the head.

Our performers are creative and so are you. Think of us as creative entertainment matchmakers.
