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 wasn’t 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, Capone’s ability to adapt to any audience has made him a mainstay in the comedy arena..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Capone to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Capone in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Capone or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
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 booking Capone for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Capone, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Capone. After we consult with them, we will provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate Capone booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Capone for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Capone booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Capone charge for an event. An example fee to book Capone is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. 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 as well. 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.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Capone agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Capone manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Capone for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Capone agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready 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 the travel costs when researching the Capone 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 Capone, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
