Due to varying demands throughout the year, and the scheduling challenge of accommodating both in-person and virtual events world-wide, we recommend submitting all inquiries for bookings as far as possible in advance.
Even if you are still working out the details of your event, it is best to contact us about your booking very early, especially if there will be air travel involved. Preferably three to six months in advance for best pricing and availability.
We typically respond to all booking requests within 24 hours.
Mostly shows for drunk people at corporate functions. The more you drink, the more amazing he appears. Well...most of the time.
All joking aside, Curtis is primarily a stand-up, cabaret, parlor, and stage performer. To put it in simple terms, he performs shows for people who sit down and watch. He does NOT provide walk-around or strolling entertainment (also known as "close-up magic") for events. If you are looking for such a performer who entertains with card tricks and such like, we have a list of references of professional colleagues that we will provide.
Curtis is also a virtual mentalist, performing virtual mentalism and magic shows for various events online.
For additional information about the specific content of a show, or for information about customizing a stage performance to suit your specific event, please contact our office at 833-646-3737 or email us at email@example.com. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
He performs until people just can't stand it anymore, or they pass out, whichever comes first.
In-person, after-dinner shows for corporate events are typically 60-75 minutes in length. Private shows for small, intimate parties run about 45-60 minutes in length on average. However, Curtis is a flexible and versatile performer, and arrangements can be made for customized performance times to best fit into any event.
Curtis' virtual mentalism and magic shows typically run 45-60 minutes, but can be shortened or lengthened as necessary to fit into any virtual event.
Theater, cabaret, and comedy club shows are typically 75-minutes in length for Curtis' full one-man show, or 45-minutes as a headlining act with other comedy entertainers on the bill.
You should have done it yesterday, but you procrastinated didn't you?
Just kidding. Three to six months in advance of your event date is recommended. Curtis performs for a large variety of events and venues, and occasionally is booked 12 months or more in advance. Friday and Saturday nights are the first days of the week to fill up each week of any month, especially during the Holidays (October through December).
However, we get "last-minute" requests quite often and endeavor to be as accommodating as possible. Give us a call anyway and we'll see what we can do!
Not for YOUR children he doesn't!
All joking aside, Curtis loves children, has raised two beautiful daughters and has a grandson. While it is usually safe for children to attend many of Curtis' performances, he does NOT do shows specifically geared for small children such as birthday parties, Cub Scout banquets, Library reading programs, elementary schools, etc.
We know that finding quality entertainment for children's events can be difficult, and we can provide references for excellent children's magicians and entertainers are available upon request.
KEYNOTES & SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS:
A simple podium and wireless, hand-held microphone for audiences larger than 25 people. Overhead projector screens that can display Apple Keynote or MS PowerPoint slides is also important as these are helpful visual aids for his presentations.
A small area in virtually any room of the house, club, or other venue. Back patios or outdoor venues are acceptable as well, but provisions must be made indoors for inclement weather.

The requirements for all events are quite minimal. Curtis is very flexible and accommodating and any special requirements for an event will be discussed and agreed upon prior to the execution of a performance contract.
No, he does not perform for free for fundraisers. Curtis faithfully supports a few charities already of his choosing and nothing more.
And telling him that "it will be good exposure" won't change his mind. In over 30 years in the business it almost never has, and your event is no different whether you think so or not.
However, if you would like to book Curtis to perform at a charity fundraiser, he offers special discount pricing for sponsors for fundraising events. Visit our "Contact" page in the website's main menu for more information.
