Frequently Asked Questions
Is Greg able to entertain people who don't speak English?
Thankfully, magic is very universally appealing to all walks of life! Although your non-english speaking guests may not totally understand every funny joke Greg makes, they will enjoy his physical comedy and still be thoroughly entertained and amazed by what they see! HOWEVER Greg presents several routines in Spanish when necessary. Greg is also experienced with working with a translator and had developed routines that make the best use of language interpreters.
Is a deposit required?
Yes, typically a 50% initial investment and signed agreement is required to reserve a date. The event is not fully booked with Greg until both of these items have been received.
What do we need to provide on our end?
What is needed varies based on the type of entertainment being provided.
If you go with a strolling/close up magic package, where Greg is merely strolling through your event and entertaining the guests, there are virtually no additional requirements. Everything Greg needs he comes prepared with in his pockets ready to entertain when he arrives at the event.
For the stage show packages, there are some important requirements that are needed in order for a successful performance.
1. If Greg is the only performer with equipment on the stage (besides a podium), then we recommend a stage at least 12′ x 8′ and at least 6 inches off the floor. Depending on how high the stage is, stairs might also be required as there is fun audience participation throughout the performance. In cases where Greg’s equipment would be sharing the stage with other performer(s), a larger stage me be necessary or other special considerations.
2. In most cases, Greg will provide his own sound system unless it’s a performance that requires air travel. In this case, we’ll also need a professional sound system setup and monitored throughout the performance. The best type of mic is a headset mic known as a “country man”. It is wireless and hands free. We also need an an input for an iPod for sound effects.
Once again, most of the time Greg provides his own professional sound system. Please keep in mind that you still may have AV needs yourself and still may want to ask your venue to provide a microphone to show a presentation, announce winners, give speeches, etc.
3. In regards to lighting, we have no specific needs but do recommend not having your event too dark because it becomes more difficult for your guests to experience the amazing magic when they are struggling to see what’s happening.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and most ONLINE payment services. Arrangements should be made in advance for the correct method of payment.
If paying with check, please make check payable to “Rising Star“
Is Greg able to entertain while people are eating?
Technically yes but we really don’t recommend it. By the nature of the entertainment, your guests participate in the magic and are often asked to help out. This is sometimes difficult when people are eating. And also it’s hard to “watch closely” when you’re enjoying dinner.
Will this embarrass or offend anyone?
We’re proud to say that absolutely NO ONE is embarrassed in any way. We’ve heard many horror stories of how other entertainers have completely offended guests in the audience with off color jokes and remarks. Greg’s entertainment is completely G-Rated and never relies on entertaining people by making fun or laughing at people.
What kind of room set up do you need for the stage show?
Typically having the stage setup against a wall having all of your guests seated in front and as close as possible (this helps provide a more intimate feeling). Guests that are seated directly to either side of the stage or behind, have TERRIBLE seats and therefore it’s best to avoid that. A space that can comfortably seat all of your guests without having them on the sides or behind the stage is best. Also watch out for those huge annoying beams right in the middle of some rooms. Please take into consideration your guests so they don’t get stuck behind one of them and miss out on the fun. See the example room diagram below.
Optionally, you can request “pipe and drape” for the stage which basically serves as the backdrop of the performance and gives it a nice feel.
Greg also has a FUNBELIEVABLY THEMED Backdrop that he travels with that is 8 x 10.
What size audiences can Greg entertain?
Greg’s entertainment is best suited for all sized audiences. Greg entertains groups as intimate as 10 people all the way up to 500 guests in a ballroom.
If you have a large group (200 or more), the use of projection screens makes the show even more enjoyable for your guests. Talk to your venue or contact a local audio/video company with questions to further explore that option.
