Sometimes once in awhile an entertainer comes around who defies description. David Scott as the Swinger is just that type of act. Part comedian, magician, impressionist, musical comedian, and all around Las Vegas style showman David Scott as the Swinger is a entertainment experience that has to be seen to understand. David excels in providing audience interactive corporate entertainment as well as casinos, cruises, clubs and fundraisers. He performs a clean show as evidenced by his bookings on Carnival Cruise Lines. His “Most dangerous bit in comedy” is one of the funniest bits out there today and his musical closer is as much fun as you would ever imagine. He has credits to back up his incredible show including HBO, Carnival Cruise Lines, casinos all over the country, major A room clubs, and holds the Guinness Book of World Records for longest continuous stand-up comedy show at over 40 hours.
The internet is a wealth of information. That is good and bad. Many companies look for entertainment on the internet and there are lots of options. One of the things to be careful of are internet entertainment site like Gigmaster, Gigsalad, etc. These sites do not qualify any of the acts that are listed on these sites. ANYONE who will pay the fee to appear on these sites gets access. Many companies believe because an artist is on one of these sites they provide a quality show or a corporate appropriate show. The key to corporate entertainment is to get an act that is appropriate for the audience and is clean enough to do a corporate show. Many acts are geared towards the club market but are not geared for a corporate show. The key is to find a booker that knows the acts, has multiple years of experience booking corporates, and has multiple references. Any company that books entertainment without those pieces in place is running a risk for their company. Typically you can save a little money by buying on-line sight unseen but more often than not these events are not successful.

A unique and fun corporate event is to bring in a comedy hypnotist. Companies sometimes shy away from this type of entertainment thinking “our company wouldn’t have people that will go up and be hypnotized”. That is never the case. Being hypnotized is a great experience and good corporate hypnotists will not do anything that a person would be embarrassed about. They actually become part of the show and gain notoriety from being part of the show within the company. The hypnotist should be clean, funny, technically a good hypnotist, and experienced. This makes for a great custom holiday party or sales meeting entertainment. Contact USA Entertainment Agency for more details or call 319-846-9336.
There is still time to book entertainment for those holiday parties. Some of the most popular entertainment options are dueling pianos and comedy. If you book these types of entertainment it is critical that you ensure that you will be getting clean, professional entertainment. There are a lot of online booking companies and entertainers who post their clips online who can’t do clean shows or do not provide quality entertainment. Make sure you work with a reputable company to provide your entertainment. These events should be risk free for the event planner. USA Entertainment Agency is one of the companies that can provide this for your event. There are others but do you due diligence to get references and assurances that your event will go off without a hitch
"Since we partnered with USA Entertainment Agency for our comedy shows the crowds have almost doubled. The fact they own comedy clubs gives them insight into how a show should be run. This has resulted in noticeably funnier and more professional shows than what we had with our previous booker. Bottom line - our business is up, our guests are happier, and we are making more money".
