Perry Kurtz is Recommended by Mark Lonow of The L.A. Improv for
Comedy & Humor Training
"Perry Kurtz is VERY unusual. Before he even speaks a word, there are four minutes of continuous laughter. He possesses the `boy-next-door' quality, like Dana Carvey and Kevin Pollack, that makes you laugh at/with him. Every show is as unique as he is. Outrageous, strange, yet extremely likable, Perry Kurtz is a performer who MUST be seen to be believed."
San Francisco Calendar Magazine
"Kurtz was unstoppable. Even the natives feared him."
Martin Sheen, Apocalypse Now
"If I was as funny as Perry Kurtz, maybe I wouldn't abuse my wives."
Charlie Sheen, Malibu County Jail.

I AM the laughter. And I can bring that to YOUR people, even virtually.
Nothing works faster to bring the mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. 30 years ago, I was part of clinical trials at The Moffitt Cancer Center in Florida proving that 30 minutes of laughter creates a flow of natural endorphins, which can reduce pain AND stress for up to 48 hours or more.
Now that the world is opening back up, many locations are beginning to schedule entertainment to keep their residents happy. For that reason, my schedule has come back to life.
Perry Kurtz. is a 71 year old full time professional comedian and entertainer of over 49 years. 18 years ago, he realized that there was a large group of people that could not get out to get a good laugh. So, he began focusing on the retirement, convalescent, and family communities.
Perry has appeared on numerous TV shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Gong Show and others, headlined national comedy clubs & at all types of corporate and private events around the world. He IS a One-Of- A-Kind.
Perry's interactive and motivational comedy & music show:
engages & motivates the audience by his talking with them, not at them. "OK. Who's got a birthday this month? Who's the oldest? The youngest? The tallest? From out of town? Still married? Bingo winner? A Vet?" He focuses on the successes and experiences in their lives, to remind them that they can have a tomorrow if it is important to them.
includes tried and true funny material about our lives, and keeping the brain and the body active and positive.
is culled from his daily life, and other performances as well as jokes from other audience members. The focus of the show is laughter, music, and motivation to continue living and never give up.
gets them interacting with himself AND each other. THEY are the stars. It's not just Perry telling stories, it's US telling OUR stories.
Engages, Enlightens, and Invigorates.
Each show is closed with some sing-a-longs, and he creates a song, on the spot, about whatever they are doing AS they do it, and getting them to sing along as a group. Some even play the tambourine or dance. Whether your population is made up of seniors, convalescents, active, assisted, memory care, young people, or a mix of all the above, Perry has material that works for ALL ages and activity levels, and each show morphs into whatever the audience needs. It's their show. No two shows are alike. And all material is clean (family friendly), unless otherwise requested. It will ALSO help keep your staff happy.
To help you make a decision, please view any of the numerous videos on the Demos page of his website (http://www.vintageentertainment.us/demos.htm). They are 5 minutes edited down, up to over an hour shows unedited, a few convalescent shows, and a few Non-Senior Shows. More information can all be found at http://www.vintageentertainment.us. There are numerous references at many different organizations on the site. If you need to get in contact with anyone more local to you, let us know and we will get you in touch with them.
Shows normally run 35 to 60 minutes. But, NOW, virtual shows, will be about 30 minutes.
The immediate benefits of Perry's shows are that the attendees will be happy and relaxed for a few days or more.(less whiny too) The memories of the show and motivations, for those that can remember, will provide joy for as long as they CAN remember. What they forget, the others will tell them about.
Perry's shows, along with TV credits, can also be featured in your calendars AND advertising as another "perk" for your "prospective" residents. ("Look what WE got!") He can also host or emcee any events you may produce for your residents OR employees. AND these are great for holiday parties! He will also send you posters or banners with pictures of himself on the different TV shows that you can display on the property to get people in the seats.
