Rent A Midget
image What's the one thing sure to liven up any party? How about a midget? That's not the answer that would have occurred to me, but it's the premise behind Rent A Midget, a California company that rents out midgets (or little people) to 'hang out at parties'. Based on their website, this company looks real enough, though the only way to be certain would be to go ahead and try to rent a midget through them. The midget entertainment options range from "Midget Strip Shows, to Christmas Cookie Servers or Office Pranks." As shocking and slightly cruel as the idea sounds, I suppose it's no different than what circuses have been doing for centuries (i.e. using midgets as entertainers).

I need 2 midgets for my April 2008 wedding. My fiance loves the little guys and I want to surprise him on our wedding day. Please email me!

Jenn, that will cost $3000 for three hours of work, or $1500 for one. Midgets are in high (hehe) demand and they only advanced payments in cash.

Hi all, i'm a midget w/ paranormal powers who has been traveling the country on my white unicorn in search of sugar. If anyone would like to hire me, I will work for sugar. PS (must have stable w/ roof or else clip clop will fly away). Closets are more than fine for me to stay in. If you would like me immediatley I can ship myself UPS overnight air for an extra charge.

I would recommend NOT using shortdwarf dot com. These guys really try and get you for the highest price at all possible, and are pretty unprofessional, and they don't even really have any talent. They simply go to the little people forums to get talent, and then simply tack on 100-200 premium. Go to the source, and help the guys that really want help.

There's a dwarf acting group on Yahoo, it's pretty active, and shortdwarf seems to have requests up there more than anyone else. I posted my request for a party elf, and had locked down a resource in under 24 hours.

Need a funny midget for her sweet 16 party
Posted by Taylor  in  dallas/ ft worth texas  on  Sun Jan 20, 2008  at  06:35 PM
well, i think the idea of renting midgets its not only hilarious, but it is the best. and if you don't find the whole midget thing funny, its probably because physically you look retarded, and people make fun of that, therefore, you decide not to make fun of others.period.
