Are you a Performer seeking work?
Go here instead.
For non-job related inquiries (i.e. link exchange, media inquiries,
questions/comments about Adrienne or the website, etc.)
please go here.
We and our performers give generously of our time
and income to the charities of our choice, therefore we cannot
offer free or even deeply discounted performances for other charities,
as worthy as they might be.
If a performer were to work for your event at no charge or at
a deep discount, it would likely require them turning down
normal-paying work for the same date/time. Alas, few of us have
that luxury... we're all just working stiffs, trying to make the rent.
While we appreciate that you may be a non-profit organization,
we, alas are not. We receive several such requests each week,
and it's simply not possible donate our time to all.
Unpaid Media Appearances
Hardly a week goes by, when we are not not asked by a TV producer
or marketing person to arrange a free appearance by one of our performers
for their show or PR media event. "It's great publicity," they will inevitably say.
Quite honestly, In all my years in business, neither I nor any performer
I know has ever received a single paid booking or even a phone call
from an appearance on TV. Thus, we no longer do them.
My performers and I are professionals. None of us work for free.
I'm sure you don't, either, nor do the other suppliers employed
or contracted by your company. For a television show which generates
millions of dollars in advertising to ask a poor actor to work for
nothing is, in our opinion, inconsiderate and disrespectful.
On rare occasions, if I feel a media opportunity is particularly
good for the career of one of my performers, as a favor to
him or her (not to the client!!) I will pass the info along and
give them the option, but these cases are few and far between.
If you want a performer for your TV show or media event,
please be prepared to pay for him/her!
