Manage episode 289981138 series 2834549
A pivot from a career in law enforcement, in the USA, led Jake Hirsch to discover his passion in live entertainment. More specifically, his experience in interviewing people allowed him to speak with fascinating people and dive deep into the entertainment business.
Jake is, and has been, active in many different aspects of live entertainment, including talent management, podcasting, promotion of events, video production, ticketing, touring, and even creation and promotion of virtual events.
Not content to wait, Jake took advantage of his entrepreneurial spirit to develop and maximize a “pandemic plan B” to offer entertainers a way to safely practice their craft. He developed innovative ways to present entertainment within social distancing guidelines – how about a live zoom concert for 800 people? Or a live in-person concert for over 300 all seated in their private box above the stage? Offerings of daily comedy …. Hush comedy secret shows… the list goes on. Is there any aspect of the business where Jake has not developed personal expertise?
Tune in to hear about:
- How rewarding it is to further your passion as a career and give back every day.
- Jake’s compliment to society during the pandemic.
- The number of different ways there are to experience live comedy and music entertainment, and how live entertainment is surviving the pandemic and lock-downs.
- Potential benefits, disadvantages, and hurdles to either bringing back live entertainment or continue on the virtual platforms after the pandemic.
- And more.
