What to Expect
Each event is different, but you can definitely expect a good time! I can stop by for a quick couple of songs, or entertain guests by mingling and taking photos. You could hire a few entertainers to take turns performing, or just set me up at the front door to greet, or pop champagne for your party quests (that’s my absolute favorite noise)! We’ll work out what you’d like beforehand. I could even personalize a song!
This Marilyn had her first performance at age 15, won her first lookalike contest at 16, and by 17 had relocated from Louisiana to San Francisco and began working for a 50’s Diner as their Marilyn Monroe and at age 18, was working for 3 lookalike companies! That year, she was hired by the California Artichoke Board to represent them for a year of campaigning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marilyn having been Artichoke Queen. Then next year AmerIcon started her career in Los Angeles (with the William Morris Agency representing her as Jessica Kiper) and has since done theatrical productions, live performances, and won several contests as Marilyn Monroe.
“Sugar” is best known for her role on Gilmore Girls (Shane), her roller-girl role on Weeds, and her two seasons on the CBS show, Survivor. She also plays Candy Edwards in the video game L.A. Noire. Please see her IMDB for other movies/television/theatre work, and her reels.
Additional Booking Notes
