The performers are more than welcome to join in, or may just walk around the concourse and interact with fans. Up for discussion.

Includes

All entertainment options include:

  • Client and end-client interview/s to develop custom written material and to do decide what political topics are on/off limits;
  • Combination of up-to-the-minute political humor, and custom written event-driven material (industry buzz, VIP roast/toast, geographic location, political issues facing company/industry, etc.);
  • Client and/or end-client will have final script/jokes approval; and
  • In-character post-performance meet & greet photo op (if wanted).

Base Rider (for On-Stage Performance)

  • One (1) wireless lavalier lapel microphone per performer;
  • One (1) wireless handheld microphone for audience interaction;
  • One (1) podium with light per performer;
  • Multimedia projector and minimum of one screen / we run multimedia presentation off of an iPad with a VGA or HDMI connector;
  • Sound system for entrance/exit music (if multimedia projector and screen are not available); and
  • Green room or dressing room for touch ups (mirror, one chair per performer, table, water, light snacks)

Production Suggestions (Not Required)

  • Keep the appearance a surprise -- only let the attendees know that a special guest/s will be addressing the group;
  • Have a few "Secret Service Agents" casing the room prior to the appearance to create ambiance and anticipation -- we use actors or local security guards dressed in dark suits, white shirts, dark ties, and ear pieces;
    • At larger budget events, we have actually had "Secret Service Agents" stationed at the doors to the meeting room to pat down, scan with metal detectors, and use "Bomb Sniffing Dogs" on attendees;
    • At other events, we have slipped "Top Secret Questionnaires" under attendees' hotel room doors on the evening before the performance; and
  • If having an in-character post-performance meet & greet photo session, we recommend a designated "Photo Booth" with either a "Presidential Set" including blue velvet drape, American flags, and Presidential seal, or a "Red Carpet Set" with association/sponsor logo wall backdrop, red carpet, red velvet rope, and gold stanchions.

NOTE: We can help with all of the above, if you need our help.
