About Funny Business Agency
Funny Business Agency is a family owned and operated national entertainment booking agency based in the United States. We are large enough to handle any task, but small enough to give our clients the care, respect and attention to detail they deserve.
Over the 3+ decades we’ve been around, we have built and nurtured relationships with talent in a variety of entertainment fields. We know the best current up-and-coming acts in the industry and we knew many of the now celebrities back when they were just starting out.
From comedy festivals to comedy clubs, college conventions to corporate events, cruise ships to casinos, we make it a point to keep abreast of the latest industry trends and to maintain and diversify our relationships that have helped make us one of the leading and most trusted booking agencies in the business.
Here is what an entertainer said about us:
The single most important part of doing a corporate comedy show is trust. A performer has to trust that everything out of his control — logistics, technical set up, etc. — runs smoothly. Whenever I work with Funny Business Agency, I’m extremely confident that everything is set and it’s going to be a really fun show. They know comedy and they truly care — top-notch pros in every sense of the word.” -Keith Alberstadt, Comedian
