The Sims 4 Entertainer Career

Rewards for Musicians and Comedians

The Sims 4 Entertainer Career
The Entertainer Career lets you choose between Comedian and Musician

The Sims 4's Entertainer Career lets you choose between making your Sim a Comedian or Musician. You likely know which you'd want to choose based on the goals of your Sim, but I'll still highlight the benefits of each Career below and suggest some good Traits and Aspirations. Thankfully, the Career branches early and its early levels let you choose whether you want your Daily Task to be Writing Jokes or Practicing your Sim's Musical abilities, so you can get a head start in either Branch.

How to: Entertainer Career Cheats

Here are the first four levels of the Career, and its requirements. The Ideal Mood is Inspired for 1-2, Playful for 3-4. Sims can get Inspired by taking a Thoughtful Shower, Playful by taking a bubble bath or watching the comedy channel on a television:

Comedian Career Rewards
Rewards for the Comedian Career Branch

The Comedian Career will see your Sim to honing their Comedy Skill and provide some perks you couldn't otherwise get. The Ideal Mood for Comedians is Playful, but strangely the rewards you receive are all Energizing Decor at time of writing. Still, even Playful Auras won't help while at work. What really helps is the Goofball Trait, as it will randomly trigger Sims a Playful buff. If your Household has Children, Childish can also help as they can get Playful by playing with Children. A big reason to follow this Career rather than doing Stand-Up Comedy is the extra earnings you'll get on Work Days. The best Aspiration for this Career is Joke Star, found under Popularity.

Note the level 9 Reward, which gives you the ability to Perform Comedy in Space. That's really what it does - get a Rocket, build it up with the Rocket Science Skill, and you can go off to the stars and earn $400 and an 8 hour Confident Moodlet (again, weird.). You cannot do this repeatedly, but must wait for the buff to disappear first, thus it can be done every 8 hours. Use mirror to raise your Charisma Skill after making your Sim brush their teeth to get Confident. This will boost Skill gains by a large percentage.

Musician Career

Musician Career Rewards - Piano and Guitar, with Misc Items

The Musician Career will task your Sim with learning the Guitar or Violin, along with Piano. This Career's Rewards will help make your Sim inspired while at home, should you enable their Emotional Auras. You'll get an unique Guitar and Piano out the Rewards, so if your Sim is musically inclined, take this Career Branch.

The Ideal Mood for Musicians is Inspired. Select the Musical Genius Aspiration under Creativity to make the most of this Career, while also choosing the Music Lover and Creative Traits. Select between Guitar and Violin so that you can work to level only one of them, given the need to also master the Piano.

Comedian is a dangerous occupation, done to its full potential. I brought up two sims through childhood to young adult, childish and goofball traits, joke star aspiration. They got married and had a boy, my legacy child. Both died early as young adults from hysteria.

I know, right. Playful is the most dangerous emotion for sure. Unsure I've had so many close calls with hysterical sims. Including one death at my sims own wedding. Poor guy. (His new spouse did manage to plea successfully for his life, but still!)
Omg... Really??? ScaredScaredScared
Yep, he had many Happy buffs so the one playful moodlet tipped him right over into Hysterical. Least my sims got to befriend grim I guess!
Jason Huntersays...
What are the CAS parts specifically in rank 10 of the musician career?
I don't know sorry. A google search didn't bring any new info either. I couldn't get the cheat to work to promote my sim to L10 as some of the cheats seem to not work after the Dec patch. If I find out I'll post back. Maybe try asking on the forum, somebody may have a sim who has maxed this career and so will know.

I've been having a bug where my sim can no longer write comedy routines. At first the long routines were not working, but now he can't write medium routines too! My other sims can and I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone know what I can do? He's in the comedian branch
There's a few things you can try: travel away from the lot with everyone in your household and back, restart your PC, delete cache files, repair your game. If it is still not working correctly you can try making your sim quit his job and retake it then test. If this works then save your game, if not quit without saving so that your sim is still at the same level of his career as there is no point to taking a hit if you don't need to. If you are still having problems feel free to post in the forum.

Can we create music band in sims 4?
We can not currently form bands in The Sims 4

with the get together expansion, you kinda can but its not perfect

Can sims be famous on sims 4?
Not really. If you have the Get Together expansion pack they can belong to a 'popular' club which makes it so that other sims might cheer on seeing them or look at them and react in a positive manner. It also gives a slight positive boost to any new friendships on introduction.
I found taking the Art Lover Trait in lieu of the Music Lover trait is advantageous in the Musician's career , as it gives you inspiration (who needs happiness :)). Thought I'd give myself a challenge, start that career at $0, ended up not being much of a challenge. Just went to the back of the museum, got $50 of collectable, went to museum got all inspired, and started painting at the Museum easel. There's a piano, toilet, sink, benches to nap on (6 naps for a sleep), hop over to the gym for an inspirational shower. Gave my Sim the Snob trait, as trying to make them playful is difficult. Again painting to the rescue, make one playful painting, keep it, enable it, rinse and repeat. As I gave my Sim the Art Lovers trait she just Admired a few of those, and was playful little snob.

So the whole experience taught me a lot, but ended up being an easy challenge I set.
Bessiesays... the first picture of the entertainer career uniforms., i think u got it switched. comedian uniform is the pink one while musicians wear the violet uniform
I think generally career outfits can be a bit buggy. I've had a sim go right through the musician branch in his swim wear! Huh Laugh
Hi! My sim's level is 5 (musician) so i'm sent to the lounges but there is no one in the lounge except my sim playing alone having no one to chat with ._. Am i the only one ?
You could have him travel with other sims when the travel sims menu comes up. If you add sims to his group them they might stay at the venue while he plays or whatever.
With the entertainer job, can my sim become an actor/actress with any other packages?
If your asking is there any active 'entertainer/rock star' career... nope. Only the base game entertainer career currently.

I'm not sure 2hat level my sim is but she is in the comedian branch. An opportunity came up -

X is getting ready to take the stage; been practising a brand new comedy routine that she wants to debut for the audience. Suddenly her cellphone rings.. it's the president of Plumbob Pictures recording studio ! He's been keeping tabs on her career growth, and thinks she's going to be the hottest new comedian to EVER hit the airwaves. In fact, he wants to lock down exclusive tv rights to her act but there's a single stipulation: must go to the studio immediately and debut her new routine live on TV !

Is X ready to skyrocket her career upwards, or will she contunue growing on the comedy circuit at a slow and steady pace ?

Film the Stand-Up Special (X will gain fame and be prompted to the top of the Comedian Career)

Perform at the Club (X's life will continue unchanged.)


Did they get rid of the Entertainer Career? I don't see it anymore in my game.
