Tips to optimize event results
Booking tips: space & lighting
A number of factors are important so that your event goes well. If ones pays good money for entertainment then they should get full value. Whether a venue is appropriate for Tom’s show depends on space. As he does things like juggling on a unicycle, the height of any ceilings is critical. While there are many tricks he can always do, if the space is limited then he will have to leave some out. The finale number of juggling rubber chickens on the tall unicycle takes the most height. At many events Tom has done the show at one place but the finale outside or in a close by space with more room. And while Tom doesn’t need any spots or special lighting, the general lighting should be adequate so that people can see what he is doing. Sounds obvious but in many places they like to set a romantic atmosphere. Candle light is not suitable to see Tom’s show.
Booking tips: food & dressing room
Performers also have to eat. Tom might be at an event for a couple of hours and just a glass of water might be all he needs. But there is often a lot of travel and preparation time before and after a gig. This may mean that he has gone half a day without getting a proper meal. To support that he can do as good of a performance as possible it is advisable to clarify his needs. Tom eats dairy, fish and eggs but no meat. This means that a sausage or hamburger is not going to be adequate.
Clown Tom does not paint his face and usually needs just a few minutes to get into his costumes. But it is best if there is a convenient place to do so. It does not have to be a fancy dressing room nor even have a mirror although it is recommended. He also needs to store his street cloths and valuables while he performs. Thus it is best if there is some place that can be secured. A shared dressing space with others is OK but somewhere to lock up his wallet and mobile phone is appreciated.
Booking tips: transportation & parking
Tom no longer has his own car. If needed he uses a car sharing system but more often takes public transportation. This can be difficult when he travels with a lot of equipment. If local connections are not good, it is often a great help to have him picked up from a train station rather than go looking for a taxi. If he does drive; then one should have a place nearby to park the car. If he has to drive around searching for parking and then drag his equipment a kilometer or two to get where he needs to perform then it is inefficient. If there is not parking option right by his performing space, it should at least be arranged that he can unload his equipment and re-park somewhere convenient.
