You're so predictable.

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.
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.
Curtis is a flexible and versatile performer, and arrangements can be made for customized performance times to best fit into any event. After-Dinner Shows are typically 45-60 minutes for most events, but can be extended to 75-90 minutes.
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.
Does this answer your question?
This is Curtis standing outside of a King Air 90 airplane provided by a client sending him to a gig. While we are based in the Midwestern United States, Curtis travels world-wide. Unless otherwise stated on individual event contracts, quoted fees typically INCLUDE all travel expenses such as air fare, car rental, etc.
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 accomodating as possible. Give us a call anyway and we'll see what we can do!
Not for YOUR children he doesn't!
Just kidding! 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.
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 accomodating and any special requirements for an event will be discussed and agreed upon prior to the execution of a performance contract.
No. Curtis supports a large number of charities already of his choosing. If you would like to book Curtis to perform at a charity fundraiser, he offers special discount pricing for sponsors. Contact our office to find out more by clicking here.
ABSOLUTELY! Curtis excels at taking a special message or theme and making it a part of his performances or presentations. Keep in mind that at times considerable advanced notice may be necessary depending upon the scope of what it is that is needed.
No. That would be a magician or an illusionist. That's okay, people often confuse them. They're all weirdos who look alike.
He did yesterday. Looks like you missed it!
