Ever wonder about how a variety entertainer prices their work? Typically, there are six factors:
  • Night of week (holidays  and weekends are more)
  • Travel Time (of course)
  • Size of Audience (TV of 30 million pays more than fundraiser of 500 pays more than home party of 25)
  • Audio/Lighting/Stage Provided or We Provide (nothing more irritating than not being able to hear or see the entertainment)
  • Length of Performance (e.g., four hours of strolling mixing magic, or a 10 minute, hi-tech show, or normal 45 minute show)
  • Number of Performances (most of us discount if you sign up another party, or contract several performances)
Nothing shocking here - but good to know whether you're booking Ash K. or one of his colleagues for a kid's party here in San Francisco, or hiring him for working your corporate event.

New Pics!

More to come later, but my chum Pat Johnson did his usual incredible work.

Getting Ash to behave for the whole session? Another story!
