Trudy Carmichael is an extraordinary Las Vegas lounge personality that is sure to spice up any party - anytime - anywhere whether you need a grande Mistress of Ceremonies, a traditional Jazz/Pop Vocalist OR a completely Improvised Musical about you or your guest of honor.
Based upon an audience suggestions and details of their lives, Trudy weaves together an entirely improvised Musical ON THE SPOT detailing the triumphs and challenges of their sensational, storied past!
A one-in-a-million talent who puts on a show of shows delivering improvised banter, improvised songs, and improvised comedy. Trudy's stature may be small but her voice is huge and nearly as loud as the fabulous sequin dresses. You never know where the show will go but you can bet you'll love the ride. With nothing more than a suggestion of a name of a one woman show, Trudy sings, sasses, and slays. I was shocked, amazed, and more-than-entertained from the opening note to the encore.
Price Range: $150/hr and up
Gig Length: 60 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
I am a trained vocalist and comedic musical improviser who performs fully improvised One-Woman Shows and Cabarets based on audience suggestions of a made-up show title or song titles and/or their personal objects. This show can be fully customized to be about a specific individual or individuals and cater to an audience of any size.
I also specialize in covering jazz standards and pop/rock classics as well as celebrity vocal impressions of artists such as Britney Spears, Cher, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Grace Slick, Alanis Morisette, Bjork, Sarah Mclaughlin, Norah Jones, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters and more!
I have over 10 years of experience performing as a Hostess and Emcee of a myriad of showcases, Mixers and Charity Events. Trudy Carmichael's sparkling personality and warmhearted humor will elevate any event and take it from business as usual to spectacular and memorable!
