Hence, it will be useful to contact the entertainer directly and find out who is likely to come to entertain at the party. The booking also is to be confirmed in writing and should have the entertainer’s name and contact details along with the time of arrival and time spent at the party.
- The second scenario is where the entertainer cancels the booking or simply fails to show up on the specified date of event. Some entertainers are noticed to be eager to make quick money. In the process, they prefer visiting a client who pays more over the ones paying less and just drop the booking.

This written contract is rather a confirmation of his acceptance of the party booking and does protects both the entertainer and the client. Having a written contract will mean, the person can seek recourse by knocking the court if he is not provided by the entertainer what has been promised.
