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!

Event World Rocks!

Having a great time at Event World! Last night we took part in Steve Kemble's "Happy Hour" event, and interrupted the talk show format with our Obama impersonator (west coast version) presenting Steve with a "Presidential Medal of Freedom!" All went well, and comments afterwards included, Jackie Bernstein of Empire Force Events saying, "Hilarious!" Steve Kemble, "Perfect!" Romaine Pereira, of International Corporate Events, "Dead on!"
What can I say? "Obamas R Us!"
