Featured Entertainer Peter Scott!

Where do you Serve?: 

Throughout the Metro Washington, DC area.

 

What type of Entertainment do you Provide?: 

I specialize in cartoon entertainment otherwise known as caricatures at every type of event from baby showers to bachelor parties.

 

Number of years in the business: 

I did my first caricature professionally in Springfield Mall in the Christmas season of 1976.  I guess that's over 3 decades!

 

How did you get into the entertainment business?

I come from a family of entertainers.  Both Mom and Dad were actors on Broadway and Mom was a professional singer as well.  I felt I had 'greasepaint in my blood' but was more strongly directed to art.

I did have a good memory:  I played Laurel in a Laurel and Hardy skit directed by Dick Van Dyke who had performed as Laurel as well and who went to our same church in West LA where I grew up.   Being a caricature artist took me out of the lone artist's studio and out where I could have 10 minute dates with the entire world.

 

What's your favorite type of event? 

I was in the Peace Corps in Malaysia for 3 years so I really enjoy international events, but honestly I enjoy big galas in 5-stars as well as one-year-old birthday parties in homes.

 

What's your most memorable event?

There was one day that my first event was a baby shower drawing everyone in diapers and my last event was a bachelor party drawing the honoree and his entertainer who as you can imagine wore considerably less than a diaper.

Valentines Day Fun Facts!

 

· Women purchase approximately 85 percent of all Valentines.

 

· Every Valentine's Day, the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare's lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet.

 

· About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets.

 

· The ancient Romans celebrated the Feast of Lupercalia on February 14th in honor of Juno, the queen of the Roman gods and goddesses. Juno was also the goddess of women and marriage.

 

· Many believe the 'X' symbol became synonymous with the kiss in medieval times. People who couldn't write their names signed in front of a witness with an 'X.' The 'X' was then kissed to show their sincerity.

 

· Girls of medieval times ate bizarre foods on St. Valentine's Day to make them dream of their future spouse.

 

· In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve."

 

· In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared February 14th the holiday of St. Valentine's Day.

 

· Physicians of the 1800's commonly advised their patients to eat chocolate to calm their pining for lost love.

 

About eight billion candy hearts were made last year, the association says-enough to stretch from Rome, Italy, to Valentine, Arizona, and back again 20 times.

Ed S, was "AMAZING".  He was the life of my 40th birthday party.  Ed was prompt, funny, loved the children and extremely entertaining.  He put so much heart and life into each picture he drew.  I loved it and so did my guests.  Thank you aboutfacesenterainers.com for making my party "MAGNIFICO".
