Make your next occasion a special one by hiring The Game show Entertainer: Doug Shannon! Heads up! As opposed to other entertainment companies, who staff numerous people to host shows, Doug ensures a quality product by only booking himself. This has been his fundamental philosophy for over 35 years. With companies that don't headline the owner, you don't necessarily know who will be your host; worse yet, you don't necessarily know the person's level of quality. This is why it is always wise to hire the owner of such companies. It is in your best interests to keep this in mind.
