I stumbled on today’s FamilyFirst site, as I do so many others, by accident.
I intended to do a column on Bill Cosby. But in looking for a site on him, I stumbled onto the one run by his agent. And once I started looking at the various acts that can be had by folks looking for entertainers, I just couldn’t stop!
You would have to have some bucks to hire any of the performers. It takes $,3500 minimum for a non-celebrity, $15,000 for a known name. But I still found it a load of fun to read about the various artists you could hire to show up at a party for your kids, if you were quite wealthy, of course.
For instance, there’s Bill Peterson. Never heard of him? Well, he looks and sounds just like Rodney Dangerfield! Read his profile, it has lots of great Dangerfield jokes.
Looking for a magician? How about Marco Tempest, technology wizard? He uses computer-generated graphics and sound, as well as effects like darkness and smoke, to produce some amazing effects.
Or would you like to hire Jay Leno to tell jokes to a small group of visitors in your living room one evening? It can be done, but it will probably cost more than the $15,000 minimum.
And, of course, you can book Bill Cosby, too.
So have a fun look at how the other world lives, and wonder at the variety of entertainment acts that you can hire, if you have the bucks to cough up!
