We operate across North America, from Los Angeles to Vancouver and Tampa to St. John’s, and many of the performers listed with us travel. Our performers are MCs, comedians, musical acts, magicians, celebrity impersonators, humorists, hypnotists, illusionists, tribute bands, and more. Whether your need a clean act or something with a bit more edge, you can find exactly what your event needs to be a smash hit.

Book Early

The key to a successful event is planning early; that means months in advance. Book everything well ahead of time, including the venue, the catering, and, of course, the entertainment. Otherwise, you might just find out that the venue or entertainer you had your eyes on is already booked, leaving you with second best. Booking everything early also means that you can include all of the details in your promotional material and social media long before the event, generating interest and guaranteeing a good turn out. If you’re planning a summer event, make sure you book outdoor space, but double check the kinds of noise restrictions you’ll have to follow and time everything appropriately.

Get Your AV Arranged

Most good venues will handle the sound and AV for your events, but it’s always a good idea to double check. Make sure they can supply microphones, speakers, lighting, and any additional AV requirements unique to the act you’re booking. Don’t get caught off guard the night of; if the venue isn’t handling AV, make sure you bring an expert in to do it professionally.

The Corporate Entertainers Guarantee

When you book a performer with Corporate Entertainers, you’ve already got a contingency plan in place. That’s because we have a “Just in Case Guarantee” that we can find a replacement with a similar act in case the entertainer you’ve booked has to cancel due to an illness or unforeseen circumstances. We only work with professional performers, so it’s a remarkably rare occurrence, but that doesn’t stop us from covering all of the bases. Your big bash is important to the team at Corporate Entertainers, so we do everything we can to make sure that everything goes flawlessly.

Don’t Forget About Travel

Every entertainer is different; travel and accommodation expenses are typically not part of the fee you pay a performer, but all negotiated when you sign the contract. If that seems daunting, don’t worry – we’re here to help you every step of the way. That’s the customer service difference that’s kept us in show business for over forty years.
