Capone Booking Agency Profile

Book Capone for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Born in the Bronx, NY, Derrick Lee was a hustler who traded in his thuggish ways to become a successful entrepreneur and took over the world of comedy as Capone. In 1991, after receiving a nine-month sentence, the soon-to-be notorious funnyman knew the street life wasnt his calling. With a second chance, Capone became a home attendant for the mentally challenged and moonlighted as a barber on the weekends. It was there that he began to hone his comedic skills with co-workers. Performing with professionals such as Mike Epps and Tracey Morgan opened up many doors for the boisterous budding comedian. Today, the funnyman is CEO of DDL Enterprises.He teaches the business of comedy one day per week, at no charge, to up and coming comedians. In addition to his acute business savvy, Capones ability to adapt to any audience has made him a mainstay in the comedy arena..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Capone.

Capone's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of an offer.
CTI can give you exact pricing once we submit your event details to Capone. How much Capone does cost to do an event depends on many variables and the fees we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with booking. Popularity, career stage, and current demand can cause an increase or decrease in pricing. The final fee may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for Capone to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI can not give out direct contact information for the agent or manager of Capone. If you want to send them a message, a gift, or request a free appearance or donation of time, then we will not pass along such material or communications to any of our contacts.
There is low probability for Capone to work a gig for anything substantially less than the published price range. We will negotiate with Capone on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Capone, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider Capone's travel costs, as they may require an entourage of staff and equipment. 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 Capone, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
