With 46 years of experience as a working comedian, all my shows are about and with the audience. My material is what THEY need. G to X rated per the booker. I never offend & haven't bombed since the early 80's. At the end, I will have them singing an improvised song..

I am a working full time comedian of 47 years, been on The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show with James Corden (which got 45 million views), America's Got Talent, Let's Make A Deal, and many other shows as well as national commercials.
My show is about the people in the room. As I have 18 hours of material, I create my show on the spot to match the needs of the crowd and the show producer(you). It's all GP rated (clean unless otherwise noted), interactive, & motivational.
Birthdays are extra special because I write material about the birthday person based on info I get from family and friend ...


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 ...

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 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.
