– from the Guest Comment Cards at the Las Vegas Wyndham WorldMark Resort
Debbie, Mark and their amazing pet parrots have worked all over the US and have been seen by more than 2 million people at their live performances. Millions more have seen them on tv shows such as the Late Show with David Letterman, Animal Planet’s PetStar and America’s Got Talent. Their unique performance is not only entertaining but if your guests aren’t careful, they could even learn something. Although the show is written for adults, the comedy is clean and appropriate for all ages. Check out what people said about their Las Vegas show on TripAdvisor and Yelp!
What is the show like?
Most people initially think our show will be a presentation or zoo-type talk about parrots, their environment, conservation, etc. While those types of presentations are suitable for zoos and schools, we believe in providing a fun and entertaining experience that the entire family will enjoy. Squawk! is an hour long show that works best in a theater or stage environment and features great talking parrots performing unique and unusual tricks like roller skating, painting, mind-reading, puzzle solving, simple math and so much more. The jokes are written to entertain the adults but is still family friendly. Before one of our Las Vegas shows, a gentleman who had brought his grand-daughter because “she wanted to see the birds” said he wanted to see how we could do an hour show with just parrots. Afterwards he told us he enjoyed the show more than she did.
How much space do you need?
For our stage show, almost any indoor venue with seating will work. We need an area of approx 12 x 20 feet in the front of the room for the bird’s perches and performing table with 6-8 ft of open space before seating begins.
We can do a version of the show outside but typically shorten it to approx 30 minutes. We find most outside venues do not provide sufficient shade or seating for the guests and the brutal summer heat can cause audiences to wilt quickly. Because Florida weather can change so quickly and drastically, details providing for the safety of our birds, props, sound system, etc would need to be worked out. A canopy of at least 10×10 ft or other type of overhead awning is required to provide shade and shelter against any pop up showers that may occur. It also serves as protection if your outside venue is frequented by hawks or other predators. We can provide our own canopy if needed.
We are licensed by the State of Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission to perform with our pet parrots and while we’ve never had an incident in nearly 30 years of performing, we do carry 1 mil/2 mil of animal-inclusive liability insurance.
