Show Description

Perry Kurtz can provide a One-of-A-Kind Personalized FUNNY Show to fit YOUR specific needs. No agendas or ranting in an attempt to change the world. Just laughter and music to make your guests laugh for up to and over an hour.
Every show is created on the spot about and with the audience. Aside from 18+ hours of established material, I bring the audience into the show, making THEM the stars. I close the shows with raps or songs about whatever the audience is doing AS they do it,. Then I get them to sing and dance along. I've done this for ages 5 to 107.
Material is written about your eve ...


Perry Kurtz was born(?) in Philadelphia at 2:32am. at Doctors Hospital. As a 10 year old Cub Scout (they had no membership restrictions in those days), he briefly entered the entertainment field when he threw his voice into a sock and began giving puppet shows (at gunpoint) at local playgrounds. Graduating from Northeast High School in 1968, he attended The Hussian School of Commercial Art in downtown Philly.
After graduating in 1972(and paying off his instructors to pass him), he began freelancing for national label companies creating finished art for Pepsi, Tab, Sprite, Levi Strauss, Gerb ...

Perry Kurtz - Clean Stand Up Comedian - Los Angeles, California Event Location: Canoga Park, CA Event Type: Elks Lodge Comedy Night 12th July 2019
Dear Fellow Elk, On Friday, July 12, 2019, Perry Kurtz brought a wonderful comedy show to our Canoga Park Lodge for our members. He opened the show with material specifically for our members, based on information we had supplied him with in advance. His material was very funny without being offensive, and had everyone holding their sides and crying from the laughter. We plan on hiring him every chance we can and are recommending him to other Elk lodges in our area. With that in mind, I recommend Perry Kurtz as a valuable entertainer and producer, fully capable of supplying any organization with an excellent evening of comedy. Truly Yours, Dave Delozier

Perry Kurtz - Clean Stand Up Comedian - Los Angeles, California Event Location: Redondo Beach Junior Chamber of Commerce, CA Event Type: Comedy Fundraiser 21st September 2018
On behalf of the Redondo Beach Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees), I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to you for so graciously performing during our Comedy Nite III fundraiser September 21, 2017. The event was a smashing success! Your performance was very entertaining. The Mariah Carey intro was classic. You had people laughing hysterically before you had said one word. Without the generosity of people such as yourself it would be impossible for us to give back to our community. We appreciate you donating your precious time and energy for us and making Comedy Nite III an event we will all remember. Sincerely, Tiffany J. Anthony Comedy Nite III Chairperson 200 North Pacific Coast Highway, Redondo Beach, Ca 90277

Perry Kurtz - Clean Stand Up Comedian - Los Angeles, California Event Location: West Hills, California Event Type: Woman's Charity Group Luncheon 19th May 2018
To Whom It May Concern: I hired Perry Kurtz to perform for a woman's charity group luncheon. Having seen Perry perform local comedy club, I thoroughly enjoyed his array of talents-from intelligent and very clever comedy to musical abilities! He is a very talented individual and exceptionally professional. The above attributes were important, as we had to book his services and count on his preparation and appearance for our specific audience. Prior to the luncheon, we had a conference call with some of our board members which gave Perry the material he needed to do the above. He was a tremendous hit, needless to say! Easygoing, talented, flexible and reliable are the words that come to mind in my experiences with Perry. I would highly recommend Perry for any kind of event, or age group. Cordially, Ava Better, Shomrei Torah Synagogue, West Hills, California

Virtual Services Offer

Interactive Virtual Comedy & Music Shows

I create interactive comedy & music shows on-the-spot. Not only will I write material about your event or people, but I will interact with them to get them into the show, and make THEM the stars. As a comedian that spent 6 years working 2 hours or more each week for 6 years with Robin Williams in the 80's in San Francisco, and then again appearing with him at many of his shows at The Improv and The Comedy Store through 2014 in Los Angeles, I learned that my improvisational skills are focused on and with the onlookers.
By the end of my show, the crowd, of ANY size, will be singing along to some old songs, and singing along to a new song that I will create about whatever they are doing AS they do it, and getting them to sing along while I play my keytar, seen with me on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2019. The Virtual format allows me to see the crowd AS they see me, and we work immediately as a team. All material is G to X rated on YOUR needs. No 2 shows are the same.
Contact me soon if you have ANY questions as my schedule is dwindling faster than my love life.

Interactive Comedy And Humor Education and Motivation

I have taught comedy and humor education to over 3000 people. Many just wanted to understand why it was funny. Others wanted to naturally funny, as people like funny people. Others wanted to be comedians. Some wanted to use humor to sell. All because they understood WHY it's funny.
In all cases, with the virtual foundation, I can interact instantly to help my "Classmates" (that sounded cool) to be naturally funnier. That means they can make people around them laugh with almost no effort. You see someone you know or work with. They have on a red shirt. You say, “I have a shirt the same color at home.” You instantly will get, at least, a smile. That is called relative humor. It is based on what is happening NOW. Underneath it all is motivation to keep going and Never Give Up!
Everyone likes to laugh. Now YOU can be the reason they are happy.
Contact me soon if you have ANY questions as my schedule is dwindling faster than my love life.
