SPACE - STAGE SET UP Yipes, that was close!
"This isn¹t a stage. It's a broom closet." Yes, it's true, Chris Camp can perform in most any venue indoors or out, but more space is usually better. Open areas with high (or no) ceilings work great (He turned on a ceiling fan once by accident). Contracts for your event may include safety parameters. They need to be adhered
to for safety and performability.
SOUND What'd he say?
From 10 to 1000 people, you¹ll never have to worry about hearing Chris Camp. He carries his own sound equipment, or can plug directly into yours with his cordless microphone, transmitters and receiver.
INSURANCE Yeow! That's smart!
Don't worry Thousands of volunteers and no one has ever been injured during one of Chris Camp's shows. Thrilled, yes! Hurt, No. But just to make you feel better, Chris carries "variety artist" liability insurance. Now that's using your smarts.
Need to be listed as "Additional Insured"? We can do for a small fee.
EXPENSES Hit the road Jack - or - Have whips will travel!
Bookings outside the home base area, may requiretravelarrangements such as airfare, ground transportation, per diem, and accommodations, and will be arranged event by event basis. He's gotta eat ya know.
WHAT KIND OF SPACE DO YOU NEED?
For best results a minimum space of 25 feet deep and 25 feet wide is required. For a more dramatic show, a
preferred space of 25 feet deep by 60 wide is requested. This allows me to use “Big Momma”, the 30 foot whip.
WHAT ABOUT CEILING HEIGHT?
A minimum ceiling height of 12 feet is a must and the higher the better.
Ceiling must be free of obstacles
(i.e. fans and lights). For ceilings under 12 feet, some routines/tricks may be adapted or eliminated for safety.
CAN YOU WORK INDOORS AND OUTDOORS?
I can work in almost any area, both inside and out.
When outdoors, grassy areas are preferred and should be flat as possible.
Asphalt and concrete are unacceptable unless covered by heavy canvas tarps which meet the space requirements
mentioned above, and must be noted prior to the event. Rocky and dirt surfaces also need tarps to prevent ruining
the whips and accidentally throwing pebbles or debris. Area can be covered with sod or fine sawdust if needed.
If working indoors, most surfaces work just fine. Carpet and wooden gym floors are GREAT. Smooth concrete
surfaces are sometimes alright, but may need to have tarps or carpet
WHEN YOU BRING BACKDROPS, HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED?
OUTDOOR SHOW — SINGLE DAY/NO PROPS
Working area should be minimum of 25”x60”. Smaller areas will require adapting some routines.
OUTDOOR SHOW — WITH PROPS
Working area should be minimum of 30” deep and 60” wide to accommodate backdrops, cactuses, rocks, etc.
OUTDOOR SHOW — WITH PROPS AND TENT
Working area should be minimum of 45” deep and 60” wide to accommodate tent, backdrops, cactuses, rocks, etc.
DO WE NEED TO ROPE OFF AN AREA FOR YOU?
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BAD WEATHER HAPPENS?
In times when weather is a factor, (i.e. heavy winds or rain, etc) the show may be altered,
shortened, or cancelled to provide ample safety to both the audience, performer and equipment.
DO WE PAY A DEPOSIT?
There are cases where a deposit is required, but not always.
CAN YOU LIST US AS AN "ADDITIONAL INSURED" FOR OUR EVENT?
I would be happy to do that for a small fee.
DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE A HOTEL?
For shows away from home base and multiple day events, hotel accommodations may be required.
