Turner Sparks - Comedian
About this pro
I've booked Turner for several corporate events over the last few years, and first and foremost, he's a high quality performer on stage in a huge range of settings. For me, that's crucial. You can tell he's got a business background, because he makes the whole process smooth and easy. He's funny, reliable, and he helps us retain more work. I couldn't ask for more.Mar 2, 2018
Turner is a performer I've see during my time performing in and organising comedy in China across several stages. Whether it has been in Hong Kong, Beijing or his previous home of Shanghai I've never seen him fall flat and he has consistently delivered. He performed at our gig which sold out with a solid set that appealed to all the audience members (quite a feat considering our english speakers at Beijing gigs come from all over). Definitely recommend stronglyOct 24, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing depends heavily on the length of the performance, location and special requirements for the show. In addition to the price for the performance, travel and hotel (depending upon location) will be required as well.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to have an initial phone call with the client to learn their specific needs for the performance. As every event is different it is essential to speak on the phone (not online) so as both sides can get a clear understanding of expectations. From the performer's side, I need to be sure that the event and environment will be conducive to comedy so as to provide the best possible show. During this initial call I like to give the client an idea what the room will need in terms of seating, lights, sound and stage. We will also talk about the length of the set, the style of humor (I regularly perform clean comedy when needed) and more.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have toured 15 countries as a headlining comedian, I work most of the major comedy clubs in New York City and regularly perform at country clubs and comedy clubs across the United States.
