- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Many factors play a role in determining the fees for each show – such as the type of show you are interested in, location, date and time, show length, preparation and travel.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When it comes to children’s entertainment, you will want a show that is equally entertaining for children as well as adults. While some entertainers may lean too far to one side of the entertainment pendulum (either too “childish” or too “sophisticated”), my show gives you the best of both worlds!
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Q. What makes the Kyle Kazoo show different from other magicians in Houston? A. When it comes to children’s entertainment, you will want a show that is equally entertaining for children as well as adults. While some entertainers may lean too far to one side of the entertainment pendulum (either too “childish” or too “sophisticated”), my show gives you the best of both worlds! Q. What does the show consist of? A. In addition to the magic, each show is laced with audience participation and comedy. One thing I pride myself on is making the audience part of the show – whether up on stage or in the audience, your entire group will feel part of the show and will go home feeling that they indeed were part of something unique and fun. Q. What are your fees? A. Many factors play a role in determining the fees for each show – such as the type of show you are interested in, location, date and time, show length, preparation and travel. Q. What kind of events do you do? A. Over the past two decades, I have performed in just about every type of venue – from a birthday party in someone’s living room to a community festival on a grandiose stage – my show can adapt to just about every performance scenario. Q. What ages is the show appropriate for? A. The Kyle Kazoo show was created with children ages 10 and under in mind. Q. What all equipment do you need for a show? Do we need to provide a table? A. All of my shows are very self-contained as I bring everything I need the day of the performance. For events with a larger audience (500 or more), some additional sound, lighting and/or stage equipment may be required to ensure everyone can see and hear the show. Q. How long does it take for you to set up? A. My show follows the adage of “packs small, plays big”. For the most part, I can get everything into the performance area in one trip. Once there, it usually takes me less than five minutes to get set! For larger venues or events that may have additional “moving parts” (audio technician, autograph table, etc.), I may need a little more time to become acclimated with the venue and get everything set. Q. Does your show feature any live animals? A. My show does not currently feature any live animals as I find them a bit high maintenance (they can bite and, well…poop). Q. Do you perform outdoors? A. While some events by their very nature take place outside – company picnics, community festivals, etc. – I prefer to perform my show indoors as it eliminates a majority of the distractions that can come with performing outdoors (wind, rain, squirrels). That being said, if your event is as such to where no indoor option is available, we can make arrangements ahead of time to ensure we are all on the same page with regard to show expectations. Q. How far will you travel? A. While I’m based in Houston, I'll travel anywhere there’s fun to be had!
