Default an agent is an agent is an agent...

I tend to be from the camp that believes most agents are evil with a few exceptions. What is it that makes a good agent not evil? What do you expect from an agent as a minimum? What would you like to see in a "dream agent"?

Personally, most agents I have become familiar with tend to have a general lack of morality/honesty. I would like to see an agent that lets every person involved know how much money is involoved and who is getting what.

What do you think?

Default Show me the money!

What do I expect from an agent?
1) gigs
2)an acceptable paycheck
3) timely payment, i.e. within 4-6 weeks, hopefully less.

Of course the agent will make money on the deal; how much is not really my concern. To my knowledge it is typically in the 15-25% range. could be different for variety acts (I do music).
