"How much does it cost to book Awkwafina for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Awkwafina booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Awkwafina charge for an event. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Awkwafina for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Awkwafina agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Awkwafina, 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 Awkwafina 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 Awkwafina, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
