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.

THEN, write Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org, and he'll call or email them.
When he's coming to town, he'll send

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 47 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
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 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? 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 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 ALSOo 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.
