Celebrities including Jimmy Carr, Emma Stone and John Barrowman are offering their services on Zoom as speakers and quiz hosts for as little as £200.
Performers have been listed online by entertainment agency JLA, among others, for events to be held virtually for often far less than the cost of a physical appearance.
Jeremy Lee, the director of JLA, told the Sunday Times these events would be ‘fantastically less expensive’ as companies ‘don’t have to hire somewhere in Park Lane or a fancy hotel somewhere, and they don’t have to pay for dinner.’
Carr and comedian Al Murray are among those confirmed, with the JLA website quoting both their appearances as costing between £10,000 and £25,000.
Russell Kane is also available for the same price, with an appearance from Bill Bailey costing more than £25,000.
