Why You Should Sign Up for Special Guest App

Published on 14th May 2019


Special Guest is an app created for performers to get the word out there about their talents and find themselves real, paying gigs. 

Turning your passion into a livelihood is extremely difficult, and no one knows that better than the apps creators, actor and comedian Damon Wayans, Jr. and entrepreneur Kristopher Jones. 

Their vision is for performers to network easily with those looking for quality talent, whether that be bands, DJs, dancers, magicians, or comedians.

The app already has respect from prominent figures in the performance industry, and it is continuing to grow in popularity. 

Whether you’re looking for a way to turn your passion into a career or you’re an individual or company in search of an act for your next big event, Special Guest can help.

For Performers:

Manage your career

Getting started with Special Guest is free and gives you the same benefits as hiring an agent to book paying gigs for you. 

If you’re just starting out in the performance industry and are looking to find a few jobs where you can display your talent, it can be daunting to foot a huge bill to an agent before seeing any results - but not with Special Guest. 

This app allows you to connect with real people right away to see if you are a good fit for their performance needs. 

Need a little help getting started? A talent buyer will help you find the jobs that are right for you without taking a cut of the profits like a typical agent would do.

Show off your skills

Special Guest allows you to create a professional electronic portfolio where you can market yourself to your potential future employers.

Upload videos of your talent to your intended audience can know what you’re all about. Whether it’s your magic act, a song you’re singing, or a video of you swallowing swords, let everyone know with as much evidence as possible that you’re a pro at what you do and display what you have to offer to the world. 

Special Guest also allows you to connect your profile and bio to your social media accounts so your audience can get to know you and your work even better. 

This app allows you to be both the performer and the entrepreneur, marketing yourself the most authentic way possible.

For Booking Talent:

Find the right performer

If you’re the one looking to hire a live entertainer, whether it be a wedding, corporate party, or restaurant, Special Guest is also for you. 

We understand what an amazing atmosphere a live performance can create and Special Guest wants as many people as possible to experience great talent in person. 

For restaurants and bars especially, Special Guest can be a vital tool in gaining more business through providing live entertainment. 

This app makes the process of hiring an act simple, and with the help of our team, you can have the perfect candidate for your next event on the books in no time.

Think outside the box

For your live performance needs, you may be thinking of typical types of entertainers - bands, DJs, comedians. Special Guest allows you more options than you might imagine as far as the performers who are available on their app. 

Looking for a ventriloquist? Special Guest has your back. Someone who can swallow fire? We’ve got that too. A Barack Obama impersonator? You already know the answer. Sometimes, the best entertainment is the least expected.
