WHO WE ARE
Established by David Allberry, The Talent Booker is a leading London based celebrity consultancy and booking service. David is a talent executive with a stellar reputation for casting celebrity talent for some of the UK’s most successful television shows.
The Talent Booker has unrivalled reach and access to the biggest names in film, music, sport, comedy and television. Over the last 16 years we have worked with every major broadcaster and developed relationships with the industry’s leading figures, from commissioners to talent agencies. We are among the very best at what we do.
We have worked with the most sought after talent in the UK and from across the pond such as:
Ant & Dec
I have worked with David for the past decade and he is, without doubt, the best in the business. From The Friday Night Project to Chris Moyles’ Quiz Night and Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, David has consistently delivered guests of the very highest calibre for us. His judgement is always spot-on and he is ice-calm under pressure – exactly what you need in a Head of Talent. David has been integral to our success and I would recommend him unreservedly.
David is a top rate Celebrity Producer with huge experience, a calm head and a great work ethic. During his time at Talkback he booked on shows with a variety of scales and is equally adept at big budget bookings as well as smaller projects. He is a strong negotiator and with the contacts he has I’d recommend him for all your booking needs.
Not only can David book the biggest celebrity names around he also has a great eye for the interesting and unusual bookings and the overall chemistry of the line-up he is putting together. What’s more he also goes the extra mile to ensure that the talent he’s booked are looked after correctly. He asks the right questions, listens to what you want and then gets the job done with the minimum of fuss. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
Persuading top celebrities to starve themselves on a desert island whilst being bitten to death by sand flies for no money requires a certain skill. David not only managed this but they are still all talking to him now!
