Lipstick and Laugh’s number one goal is to give the absolute best presentation possible!!! It is for this reason they do not present/perform while the audience is eating. Presenting during meals makes it next to impossible for Lipstick and Laughs to establish the rapport necessary with the audience for a successful program. Aside from the performance itself, the sound system is the single most important key to achieving this goal.
|1.|| One professional quality sound system with external speakers which will adequately cover
the performance area and project well to the number of people at this event, keeping in
mind that Lipstick and Laughs’ presentation includes live guitar and vocals as well
as speaking. In-house ceiling speakers are not acceptable.

As stated above, Lipstick and Laughs plays in many different situations ranging from fine theaters to hotel ballrooms, meeting rooms, make-shift stages, multi-purpose rooms and others. We will address all situations in terms of Lipstick and Laughs’ minimum requirements, but as always, the better the staging the better the program. Please contact us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (615) 945-5899.
Please provide an 8′X 8′ stage or riser appropriate for the room, audience, and situation. [8' X 12' is preferable]. If the stage is made of portable sections please make sure it does not squeak or move when walked on.
Please provide three stools.
If either the audience seating or the stage are movable, please locate the stage and audience as close together as feasible. This is important because closer proximity facilitates better connection between performer and audience and thus, a better show.
If you have a choice between rooms for the event, choose the smallest room that will comfortably accommodate the number of attendees you expect. The less empty space in the room the better the energy and connection and again, the better the show will be.
If theater lighting is possible Lipstick and Laughs needs a nice general wash in the middle 2/3 of the stage. In ballrooms or similar rooms where lighting possibilities are limited, the key is to light the stage area in some way to make the show very visible and to help define the situation that this is a show and performance, not background. If possible, the audience should be about 75-90% dark. Also, be sure to light the stage from both sides so as not to cast shadows on one side.
