"If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane." - Jimmy Buffett
A stand-up comedian can be a great way to get your group laughing. Comedy is best served after dinner and can be of varying degrees of spice. You want to be sure the comedian you hire can work within the guidelines and restrictions that pertain to your business, audience and event needs. All comedians will tell you that they can do a clean, corporate show, much like used car salesmen, so you need to book through a reputable agency to ensure your comedian is a perfect match for your event. Pricing is based on experience and credits.

"Music is the universal language of mankind" - Longfellow
What about your music? A DJ is a great addition to any size or type of event. They can perform during the reception, dinner and right through the party. Live music can be smooth and easy listening or highly interactive, whether it is "wallpaper" (the term used for background music) from a single instrument player, duo or trio, to rocking the house after dinner! Bands get booked up quickly during prime times so make sure you book your early! For something different, ask about Dueling Pianos or Acapella groups for your next event!
