The waiters are based in and around London and perform all over the UK and Europe.
Café Kølbert are comedy waiters who tailor each of their shows to the event at hand. They entertain for at least an hour, usually during the meal. The "show" starts with them emerging with wine to pour for the guests, this is an excuse for our actors to interact, in character, with the blissfully unaware attendees. The waiters are quite subtle to begin with. Then the Maitre D' character blows their whistle to get their staff to line up for an introduction of themselves.
The Maitre D' will also make a specially tailored speech about the party and its guests which has been previously put together using information from a questionnaire filled by the client. Then it's back to work for the waiters who, as their cover is now blown, are braver than ever. The close interaction with the guests is now added to by spontaneously bursting into a song, poem, or something of the like, to the delight of the whole room. After that the Maitre D' has had enough and it is time for another line up, that also entails a finishing act. The whole show is carried out with the guests still able to eat, drink, and talk to each other.
