Keith's hilarious show had us in stitches from beginning to end. His unique blend of current life experiences and unusual upbringing is a perfect recipe to a great show! Don't miss the chance to see this one of a kind performer. "9 out of 10 Martinis"

What to Expect
Everyone will have a fun and enjoyable time!
Podium for Keynote Speech
Podium for Keynote Speech Quality microphone and sound system Stage area if crowd is large
Quality microphone with microphone stand
Stage area if crowd is large
An adequate sound system consisting of two (2) microphones (one for backup) with removable head ; no cordless or radio mics. With an adjustable single microphone metal base (no legs), plus two stage monitors, if possible.
If booking to speak at a banquet or corporate dinner, entertainment should start at after least dessert time. People want to talk during dinner, most audiences prefer to enjoy the entertainment after dinner. Also the food serving can be distracting, along with the clanking of all the silverware and glasses.
I would prefer that there isn't a huge "moat" or dance floor between me and the audience.
Thank you very much for consideration.
