At the age of 17 Randy threw his first party for 500 guests. A few months later he landed his first BIG event and first corporate client, A & M Records. Thirty-five years later, a true entrepreneur, Randy Fuhrman has produced everything from an intimate dinner for two to events for thousands for some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
When Randy started creating parties, there was no such thing as an “event producer” - there were only caterers. But he knew there was more to hosting a fantastic event than simply having a great menu. Randy brought more to the table than food. He created a total experience for his clients. Designing floral arrangements & centerpieces, creating an ambience in the room, and presenting food as if it were art; something had never been done before. Randy Fuhrman was a true pioneer of event production as we know it today, and remains on the cutting edge of event design and production. He is recognized as one of the country’s leading event producers.
His bold personality, unique cooking style and outrageous wardrobe led to a five-year spokesperson position with Southern Comfort traveling to over 40 cities a year. In this capacity, he also used his recipe development skills to create Southern Comfort branded food and beverage recipes. An accomplished mixologist, he served as Playgirl Magazine’s resident mixologist for three years developing a “Drink of the month” and “Recipe of the Month” for their magazine. He has appeared on national and local television demonstrating recipes and has become a highly trained and natural spokesperson.
Randy Fuhrman Events has earned the respect and love of the media. Randy has appeared on “Extra”, “ABC Evening News”, “Good Morning America”, KTLA and in Harper’s Bazaar, McCall’s, Good Housekeeping, USA Today and the Los Angeles Times. Even the Desperate Housewives had him whip up a seasonal meal.
Randy Fuhrman is a “foodie” at heart – he can rival any chef or caterer and is constantly developing his own recipes and menus. He has over forty unique recipes for his world famous brownies. His favorite? The Raspberry and White Chocolate Brownie which he first made as a thank you gift for his Gelson’s customers over thirty years ago.
Today, Randy Fuhrman Events has won numerous industry awards, including three awards for Outstanding Event by Special Events Magazine. He shares his creativity and experience with students at UCLA where he teaches their Special Events Class. Randy has also been one of the favorite speakers at the global Special Events Convention for over fifteen years.
His client list now reads like a who’s who of Hollywood’s A-list, producing parties and events for Nicolas Cage, Robin Williams, John Travolta, Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Joan Rivers, and Diana Ross, to name a few. His corporate clients include Walt Disney Studios, Warner Brothers, MTV Networks, Capitol Records, Ernst & Young and a host others. Randy approaches each new client and event as if it were his first, with a dedication and an energy that has contributed to his many long-standing client relationships.
