Emcee Script

Sharing is caring!

Each and every event you do as an Emcee will be different, so it’s impossible to give an actual Emcee Script that you can use for every occasion.

However, we have assembled the next best thing!

A collection of lines, phrases and words that you can use to slot in to any Emcee Script! We have also provided links to several other popular articles here on the website that will help you write specific sections of your Master of Ceremony Script.

So, whatever it is you are writing, be it …

Emcee Script for School Program
Emcee Script for Seminar
Emcee Script for Opening Ceremony
Emcee Script for Event
Emcee Script for Wedding
you’ll find some useful bits here.

In the Resource you will find snippets that can be used for …

Emcee Greetings
Emcee Opening Remarks
Introducing Speakers
Thanking Speakers
Emcee Closing Comments

We also include my personal collection of Powerful Words. Use these to beef up any Emcee Script you are writing.

We know you will find plenty of useful material. Treat this as an ideas source rather than a finished script. Like a buffet meal, select little bits from each section and put them together like a Jig Saw Puzzle!

We strongly suggest you Bookmark this page. We will be adding to it over time.

Now, what are you trying to write?

Is it an Opening Speech?
A Speech to Thank a Speaker?
or do you just need some great lines to get you started as the MC?

If you would like a more in depth article on each of these topics, please follow these links.

201 Powerful Words

Why use ordinary words in your Emcee Script when you can use Powerful Words?

Add these into Openings , Intros, Calls to Action and Thank You’s.

I started putting this list together when I had to Emcee some Talent Shows and wanted different words to use each time.

I’ve subsequently used the list at Product Launches, Trade Shows Exhibitions etc.

    Thank you for the bucketloads of the nuts and bolts.
    There’s no point in reading an article like this unless you do something with the words in it. =)

    • Mr Hyde February 27, 2019, 2:47 pm

      Totally agree Jon. And that’s why we tend not to give complete scripts on the site, you’ll have everyone saying the same things.
      Rather a toolbox and some frameworks. Cheers

  • Nad March 13, 2019, 1:51 pm

    Very helpful. Thank you.

  • Angel Bogart March 19, 2019, 10:43 am

    I really appreciate it that you mentioned how emcees should treat scripts not as a verbatim source of materials to use, but as a buffet of ideas. Uncle George would sure like this suggestion because he’s planning on emceeing our grandparents’ diamond anniversary party. He wouldn’t want to memorize a full, finished script for the gala and would like it if he could just be himself and get ideas from your online list of spiels. Thank you!

    • Mr Hyde March 28, 2019, 4:47 pm

      Thanks Angel. Some people do like an exact script, but I like the framework or keypoints approach myself. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment
