What to Expect
I'm easy to prepare for - I just need a microphone and a stage.
In advance of any performance, I schedule a phone consultation with the client, so that I can customize my act to the event. It's important to me that each performance is as unique as my audience. I edit the content rating (anything from squeaky clean to mature content), level of interaction, and content based on that call.
One of my strengths as a performer is audience interaction in the moment. In many of my private performances, I ask audience members to write down topics on a note card and drop them in a bucket. During the show, I pull those topics out of the bucket and riff on whatever the audience has written down. This allows me to give every audience a unique show that is just for them.
Many private events serve dinner. I do ask that food NOT be served during my performance and that the room is designed so that all of the chairs in the audience are facing the performance area. I want to deliver an unforgettable experience, and I've found that I can do that much better if the audience isn't distracted by a meal being served.

Additional Booking Notes
Ideally, the performance area is brighter than the audience, but if that's not possible, I am flexible.
I need a hand-held microphone and mic stand. I prefer a wireless mic whenever possible. Microphones that are attached to podiums will not work.
