In the days before banks started passing out credit cards on high school and college campuses and giving mortgages to people who were having trouble paying the rent for their apartments, credit was treated as a privilege, not a birthright. It was often said that to qualify for a loan you simply had to prove you had the resources to make said purchase (car, house, boat, RV or whatever) without a loan.
In my years as a comedy variety artist, I have often heard comedians and other entertainers remark, and even complain that getting an agent is a lot like getting a loan, or like getting a loan used to be. All you have to do in order to attract the attention of a talent agent or speakers’ bureau is get to more gigs than you need without the aid of any agent.
We, at Aardvark Comedy and Speaking, have decided to become part of the solution to this problem. For all of the entertainers out there who can’t get an agent to give you the time of day (let alone any gigs), we would like to help. We will take the time to look at your bio, photos, and demo. And, if we can’t offer you work immediately, we will give you tips to help “punch up” your promotional package in order to get work.
Unlike the many entertainment listing services (GigMasters, GigSalad, etc.) you find online and elsewhere, we will not accept a fee unless we get you work. That’s right! No monthly, quarterly, or annual fees just for showcasing your entertainment services on our website.
So, all you stand-up and sketch comedians, magicians, jugglers, mimes, ventriloquists, impressionists, etc. we WANT to hear from you. And children’s entertainers, All you clowns, storytellers, balloon artists, send us your information. That also applies to all you motivational/inspirational (both religious and secular) speakers, keynote speakers, and education presenters (for schools, seminars, and workshops).
Whether you offer pure entertainment, a message, or entertainment with a message, we want to hear from you. And, remember, you won’t pay a cent unless we get you work.
For all of you event planner out there, you really should check us out because we have high quality entertainers and speakers who are “flying under the radar” so to speak. You won’t find these energetic entertainers and gifted speakers at any agency. You can only get them through us.
