About Booking Variety Shows
Hiring a variety show for your event is a great way to make sure you provide a little something for everyone. Variety Shows are perfect for parties or fundraisers, and can range from political satire to impersonators to light entertainment, with each act being introduced by a master of ceremonies or emcee.
There are a few things to remember when hiring a variety show for your special event. You want to find variety shows that specialize in the style of entertainment that you want for your event. Do you want music to be a part of it? Or is comedy most important? Do you want a family friendly performance or something geared for adults? These are just a couple questions you should ask yourself before you start your search. You should always ask to view video of their past performances. Also, read reviews and call references. Talk to people that have seen or booked the show in the past. Feedback is a great way to ensure you book the best. Last, always get a contract. Read it carefully and work out any details in regards to deposit requirements, length of performance, scheduled breaks, attire, travel, and lodging. Also, inquire about specifics. Will the variety show need a special type of floor or stage? How much area is needed?
