You might have a great act, but what if no one sees? Here are a few ways to get booked, and booked again as a performer. 1. Be easy to reach once you're contacted. It's not a deal until it's a done deal. It's cool to be professional and answer show planning questions. This means no drama the night of the show. Changes happen and you'll want as much notice from the producer, so be reachable once you've made the commitment.
