As of this writing we are still in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the infection rate is rising in most states. So that means if you wanted to hire entertainment for an event you are out of luck? No! Not at all! Many entertainers have learned to be creative in the way they can safely present entertainment and value to clients. It doesn’t matter if you are a corporation such as IBM, General Motors, or Apple looking to entertain clients or employees or you are a parent looking for fun entertainment for a child’s party. The good news is that it is actually very easy to hire entertainment.
So how can entertainment be done safely and make your event a success. There are two or three factors you have to consider first. How many people do you want to attend the event? What are their age demographics? And where are you having the event (the venue). These questions will determine if you can have a safe in-person live event or have to look at other options. To have a live event you need to have a big enough venue so that family groups can socially distance from each other as well as from the entertainer. If this is possible, then you can have a live event (providing it doesn’t conflict with any local/state guidelines).
This is what is know as the Social Distance Live Show and it is your first option for you to consider. There are some entertainers who will not perform currently, but many will perform if there is proper social distancing in effect including myself. However, let’s say you cannot meet the social distance requirements; well the good news is you still have options. Many performers offer Live Virtual Shows on various on-line platforms such as Zoom and Facebook. Many also offer prerecorded shows. I offer these all these options to my clients. And more good news for all of you.
You are not limited to only one or two types of entertainers. For instance, I am a magician. But entertainers who are singers, jugglers, ventriloquists, acrobats, poets, and more are available to bring you either live-in-person social distanced entertainment, live on-line virtual entertainment or prerecorded entertainment. Don’t let the pandemic stop you from your entertainment needs.
