Frequently Asked Questions
Are your performers really "little people"?
This is a very common question. All of our performers are of average height. Our costume design is understandably misleading. Hint: The secret is in the hats. It wouldn't be Those Funny Little People without large, roomy hats for our characters, which conceal our dedicated performers.
How much do you charge?
We prefer to answer this in a phone conversation, since there are different show lengths, and special discounts or additional fees that may apply.
How long are the shows?
Most shows with two Little People are about 20 minutes long. We also offer some 30 minute and 40 minute appearances featuring
2 Little People.
Can we hire just one Little Person?
Yes. But our menu of shows in this category is limited. (But growing!) We have done office birthdays, G-rated Bachelor and Bachelorette parties with 1 Little Person, and even a "Little People" Elvis impersonator. These shows are only about 10-12 minutes long. One Little Person for a meet and greet appearance is also popular, such as our leprechaun for an Irish Pub.
Do you provide your own music?
Yes. Our shows are on CDs and IPODS. We have our own sound equipment and a representative to handle the set-up at each show. Often a DJ is in place and will play our CD or IPOD in his or her system.
Can we make special requests?
We have many "off-the shelf" shows, but are always ready to listen to your ideas. One or two special songs can be added or substituted, as long as they fit into the show content. Signs, logos, or props can be added with enough time. Customized scripts and costumes are also available. Fees for changes or additions vary depending on your request.
Do you have "Little People" in any other states?
Sorry, we are a Chicago-based company, but we are willing to travel, and make out-of-state appearances often. We also perform many shows in Indiana and Wisconsin on a regular basis
How do I become one of the Little People? It looks like fun!
It is a lot of fun if you are cut out to do it! We are always looking for good quality people! You must be of average build and have good energy. We hold auditions several times a year, and usually post these on Craig's list and a few other publications. You must be able to pick up dance steps quickly, as there is dancing in every show. We also look for natural ability in puppetry. Some of our best candidates have been actors, dancers, and people with experience in band or drum corps or aerobics, but anyone is welcome to audition. You must be able to give up some week-end time and have a reliable car. It's a great part-time job! Call anytime for more info.
