Game Day Entertainers  

 

The Sioux City Explorers are looking for people who would like to let their creative, goofy side break through by creating characters to entertain the crowd.

 
 
You will get paid to hang out in the ballpark and mingle with fans throughout the game and help those who may not be the world’s biggest baseball fans still have a great time in the stands.  The best description that we have come across for this position is one part cheerleader, one part vaudeville actor, and one part rodeo clown.
 
We want you to create a character complete with costume, make-up, and whatever personality comes along with it (within reason of course).  You will be “in-character” from the time the gates open until the game is over.  
 
If you would like to see the all-time greatest example of this type of activity, do a quick search for Max Patkin online, the “Clown Prince of Baseball”.  
 
Send us your name, resume’, and contact info along with a brief description of your idea for a character you would like to develop.  We will reach out to set up a time for us to meet and see what we can figure out.
