Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear.

There is low probability to book Chris Parnell for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Chris Parnell agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Chris Parnell, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Chris Parnell booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Chris Parnell, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
