|•How Do I Hire You?
We do our own booking, so the easiest way is to CONTACT US. The more details you can give us, the better! Date, location, type of venue (indoor, outdoor, stage, etc.), type of audience (elementary aged children, all adults, etc.) are some examples.
•What Kinds of Venues Do You Work?
Theater, street theater, festivals, corporate events, galas, comedy clubs, school assemblies, etc. Our best shows involve all ages and lots of people!
•What Kinds of Venues Do You NOT Work?
Sorry, but due to several reasons, we do not do birthday parties, shows at private residences, or religious events.
•How Much Do You Charge?
It varies! Travel time and date are the biggest factors. With more details about your location and desired show(s), we can give you a price.
•How Far Will You Travel?
We've done shows as far as Japan and New Zealand, so nowhere is too far. Air fare & accommodations (if applicable) are generally expected to be covered by the client, unless
specific arrangements have been made. We are based in Massachusetts, so if you are not located in or near the northeast U.S., we would rather fly!
•Are You Appropriate For All Ages?
YES! We are a family show, and this is one of our greatest strengths. The comedy is "clean", but without being "children's" entertainment and therefore boring
for adults. We like to think of ourselves in a Muppet Show kind of fashion ... very appealing to kids, but some jokes go over their heads.
•What Are Your Technical Requirements?
Our show is adaptable and we can tailor it to fit specific needs. But for the full show & all our tricks, we require:
-- Space: 20'x20' flat surface with high or no ceilings, or a large stage. We love lots of space and lots of people!
Please note we do not just do yo-yo tricks; we need space to do hula hoops and unicycle within a safe distance from the audience.
-- Surface: Smooth! Like a hard floor inside or asphalt outside. Grass is OK.
-- Sound & Power: None needed. We have our own sound system that runs on a heavy-duty battery.
•How Long is Your Show?
Usually 45 minutes. This can vary depending on the client's preference, audience, venue & impromptu moments.
•Do You Teach Yo-Yo Workshops? If So, Can You Provide Yo-Yos For Everyone?
Yes. We can work with 30 people maximum and can provide a pre-determined number of Duncan Pro-Yos (our
favorite good quality & inexpensive teaching yo-yo) that you can buy from us wholesale. We can only do the workshop with yo-yos we provide as yo-yo quality greatly varies. Within the workshop, we cut each string to fit each person's height, go through the proper
throwing techniques & basic tricks, and discuss yo-yo maintenance to encourage further practice. If you are interested in the workshop, we need to know a month or more ahead of time so we can get the yos from our
•Do You Do Roving/Walk-Around Tricks?
No. Having a focus,
developing the tricks and creating a relationship with the audience are our strengths, so we would rather not provide a watered-down version. (Plus, doing non-stop tricks for a couple
of hours hurts our string fingers ... cuts off circulation!)
