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 even ...

Biography

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 ...

From The Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge On Friday April 25th, 2015, members and guests of the Thousand Oaks Elks Lodge #2477 were delightfully pleased with a homemade Italian dinner. A delicious and satisfying meal enjoyed by a sold out crowd. The meal was followed up by comedy entertainment headlined by Perry Kurtz. Perry roasted our incoming and outgoing executives, and kept our members and guests laughing with delight at his jokes, stories and interactive antics.

Long Beach Senior Arts Colony 200 E. Anaheim Street Long Beach, CA 90813 August 5, 2014 Dear Perry, Thank you for entertaining our residents on July 29th, 2014 at the Long Beach Senior Arts Colony. This was the first time we had a comedy show and hopefully it won’t be the last. You got our residents laughing throughout your lively show. They especially enjoyed the “blues” song at the end where you were able to make up lyrics on the spot about them! Many thanks again and we hope to have you here again in the near future. Cheers!

Virtual Services Offer

Personalized and Interactive Comedy & Music About and WITH Your People

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.

Humor Training 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.
Everyone likes to laugh. Now YOU can be the reason they are happy.
