I heard the Mythbuster guys were here before.  That'd be sweet to see them.

it would be quite funny if they debunk the ns7 product as a 'myth'.

Two of the best closing keynotes I have attended at ManageFusion, were where the speaker was from a scientific background. One was a chap from NASA talking about the Mars lander project. The other was Michio Kaku, the renowned physicist who was involved in developing string theory.
One of the worst keynotes featured a comedian who was frankly not funny - or perhaps you needed to be a native of the USA to understand the 'humour'.
Comedians are ten a penny, so my vote goes for niche specialists who are not from the IT industry.

Mythbusters would be pretty fun but most of their could stuff take time to do. I think a Comedian/Entertainer would be the best choice, if he/she is funny like EdT said.

Jeff Dunham with his comedic friends would be great!

Looks like Jeff is already booked for a sold-out performance in Amsterdam that Thursday. How about getting Conan instead? He's not doing anything and that would be awesome.

How 'bout Terry Fader, at least he should be in Vegas and would stick with the Ventriloquist theme.

Its a best practice to have a "Support Contract" with Symantec...

In past Managefusion's, the last day is usually hang over day from the full week activites.  People also have flights that leave pretty early in the afternoon.  I would think a Comedian would be good to send everyone home with another laugh after a fun week.

Would be my vote.  But we would have to get them to debunk the myth that KVS secretly runs Symantec from a bunker in northern England.

For those who haven't heard I got an e-mail yesterday saying it was Bear Grylls.  That's still some serious coolness!
