Corporate & Funny Comedian - Perry Kurtz
About this pro
44 years in business
Perry Kurtz is a COMPLETE JERK!!! Don't EVER hire him to do his warped brand of so-called comedy in front of Seniors who live in Assisted Living. He shared the most INSULTING, CONDESCENDING repertoire on 2/14/15 in OC, CA. What an asshole for talking to our precious residents the way he did. Don't pay him a penny for this or have him degrade our beloved elderly any further. Don't let him say to your residents what he said to ours!Feb 18, 2015
Perry Kurtz made our last event one to remember. Not only was Perry very funny, he brought videos and music that had the crowd cheering. Everyone at work still talks about Perry's improv rap song.Oct 19, 2012
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I perform standup comedy or my improvised narrational karaoke every night.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?When I was a 10-year-old Cub Scout, I was on a children's show. While Gine London drew pictures on his big easel, I was given his chimpanzee to hold. It had a very large lollipop in his hand and stuck it in my hair. While it was trying to pull it out of my hair, and my head was bouncing all around, I just stood there and held it like nothing was going on. The audience was laughing like crazy. At that point I knew I wanted to be an entertainer. I eventually developed a sense humor and became known as The Comedian. All my life people said to me, you should be a comedian. Then in 1974, I went to the Crazy Horse Saloon in Barrington, New Jersey, entered a talent contest and got up and sang a crazy version of Eleanor Rigby in Jerry Lewis's voice while I played an electric guitar. I won the contest and walk out with big-money. A few weeks later I took a stand up comedy course in Philadelphia, and began doing standup in March of that year. Now I have the best job ever..
- What types of customers have you worked with?I am available to host/emcee, or appear as a featured speaker or entertainer at ANY type of event, festival, affair, or party. Material is written for each occasion. Material is G-Rated to XX-Rated depending on your needs. All material is non-sexist, non-racist, and non-offensive. If you're buyin', I'm flyin.
