Will Ferrell

While on a promotional comedy tour for his 2008 film "Semi-Pro," Will Ferrell required a Janet Jackson-style headset microphone, a mobility scooter, and a rainbow on wheels on stage, according to his tour rider.

And while the movie star does not require a meal during the show, it would be a really good idea to keep Ferrell's stash of peanut butter protein bars as far away as possible from fellow touring comedian Demetri Martin who is "extremely allergic to nuts, particularly peanuts." (3 pages)
