Do you know what a beat box juggler is?
This was a tough audience of "been there, done that" event planners, entertainment producers, and other professionals involved with special events.
Linda Thompson of Cappa-Graham exclaimed, "I was immediately captivated!"
Since blogs are supposed to be short, it's hard to describe what he does, so just contact Cast of Thousands for more info! Or call me at 888-277-2278!

Marilyn Monroe hits one out of the park!
Our Bay Area Marilyn was the surprise ingredient of a recent birthday dinner in a posh neighborhood of San Francisco. We customized the performance to specifically honor the "Man About Town."
Here's what the client had to say:
"...throughout the day we have been getting 'thank-you-calls' and absolutely EVERYBODY loved M.M. !!!! Such style, such a witty, clever, wonderful entertainer, - those were some of the comments! And as I told you, my husband and I together with all our friends were totally delighted! So once more a million thanks to you, Cast of Thousands, and to the great Marilyn Monroe !!!!!"

Strolling Buffets add colorful fun!
At a recent event, at our favorite Bay Area venue (California Academy of Sciences) we provided three strolling buffet tables to match some of the attractions of the Academy. Butterflies flutter not only in the 4 story rain forest, but on the grassy "living roof" as well. We also created a Moon table and a Stars table, to signify the amazing planetarium. And the grape vines on stilts were also back by popular demand!
As always, at Cast of Thousands we create entertainment customized to each client's specific vision!
Our West Coast Obama awards Kemble
At Event World, 2009, in San Francisco, our West Coast Obama Impersonator awarded Steve Kemble with the "Presidential Medal of Freedom," commenting that Kemble has demonstrated time and time again the freedom to be Steve Kemble, and above and beyond the call of duty to be OUTRAGEOUS!

We won an ISES Esprit Award!!!
Venue: Southwest School for Art and Craft, San Antonio, Texas; Client: GEM Associates, Kelley Gillespie, for her client: L'Oreal Cosmetics, USA
The setting was lovely, on a patio garden along San Antonio's "River Walk." The guests were 400 dermatologists relaxing after a medical trade show. The atmosphere was magical, due to the perfect blend of expert planning, decor, tenting, lighting, costumes, and very talented performers.

Pamela and Steve are Engaged!!!
Have you heard the news? Pamela is engaged to be married to Steve Moore! It happened on June 20th, and this announcement is for those of you who have been on a desert island somewhere and did not receive this momentous news. I met Steve on a recent visit to DC and found him to be absolutely terrific! A wonderful, warm hearted person who is very easy to get to know and who obviously adores Pamela. We are all very very very happy for Pamela and Steve.

Be a Hero! Hire Icons from the Past for your next Corporate Meeting!
(as she did recently for a major corporate event)
Who could inspire and wow a group of very powerful women? Cleopatra, that's who!
(The client could not thank us enough for the performance, and signed up for the next two years for the same event!)
And how about Obama and Abe Lincoln discussing current events?
(all geared to the group's buzz words, issues, and key personalities)
Our performers are seasoned actors and impersonators. Our speech writers hit all your targets!
Can't afford an ex-president or cabinet member for your next meeting? Name your favorite personality from the past, and we'll provide a performance that will make your event go down in history!

Our "Obama" endorses Las Vegas
He reminded the event and meeting planners that Las Vegas is the #1 destination in the country for meetings and conventions. Here's why: Not just the flashy shows and casinos! Las Vegas has 6.7 million square feet of convention space, and an additional 3 million square feet at individual properties. Last year 22,454 conventions and meetings came to Las Vegas!
These meetings pumped 8.5 billion dollars into the economy. We call that some kind of stiumulus! And oh yes, lest we forget--Las Vegas is FUN!

Oh, the places we go, the creatures we see!
One of the many reasons I love my job, besides working with some of the greatest octopi and jellyfish in show business, is where we get to perform.
