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).

There are millions of people in the Tampa area, quite a few of whom would probably like to attend your bachelor party.

ugh... If I was a "midget" and some tool asked me to perform at his wedding, I'd offer to perform a circumcision on the groom with a chainsaw. Now That's a Little Entertainment. Sorry, small joke. Tool

I am looking to hire two guys for a private party for January 16th, here in San Diego. Willing to pay $2000 for that night. Only serious interests please! Thanks!

Hiring a midget for your party is fun for about two minutes. Then it gets awkward. Real awkward. After awhile, he's just hanging out and you're asking dumb questions like, "So, how long have you been a midget?"

Check out the full story of the party I attended at wwjtd (dot) com.

SHORT DWARF .com is apparently a guy named Howard that has no price sheet for his talent. They are very unprofessional and extremely unorganized. Their website says they service areas they don't service therefore they falsely advertise. Not the best resource. I will post better sites. If budget is not a concern, I would go with centerfolds.com at least they are clear and concise with regards to pricing. None of the sly tactics shortdwarf.com tries to get away with.
