Get Your Tickets Before It Sells Out….Best Seats Available …………….Every seat in the house will have a great view for shows offered by renowned event planner  Craig Neier.  Craig Neier, founder of Craig Neier Associates and Co-Owner of Catch A Rising Star Comedy Clubs & Productions is offering Socially Distanced Entertainment via a ZOOM Platform that will accommodate an audience of up to 1,000.     Craig Neier Associates provides shows for many Fortune 500 Corporations, and families throughout the United States, from New York, Las Vegas, Reno, and Atlantic City.  In my interview with Craig he explains this innovative way he’s developed to keep performers and entertainers working during these challenging times.

SS:  Craig, your company usually supplies entertainment for so many varied functions in many diverse venues and it all came to a dead stop because of COVID-19.   How did this new presentation concept take shape.

CN: I had been asked by many of our clients across the Country to get involved in productions of interactive virtual entertainment options for various locations, country club’s corporate events, and organizations social and private parties.  So we organized some social medium platforms to enable us to supply “live internet” entertainment to the venues that previously booked our live shows.  

SS: How does it work?

CN: We take care of it all on our ZOOM Platform or in coordination with the Venues platform.  We can also supply the “MC/Host” if required and create the evenings show.  Some of our clients who are unable to proceed with their fund raising Galas have asked us to create social fundraisers because of the current restrictions.  Now with some of those restrictions being lifted we are also being asked to provide outdoor drive in movie set ups, and outdoor stages.

SS: Who are some of the acts you are offering on this performance platform.

CN: Impressionist Singer, Tony Pace, Broadway Star, Josh Young, America’s Got Talent Ventriloquist, Michael Harrison, Chef, Andrew Rothchild, Magician Close Up Artist, John Born, The Sharpe Family Singer, plus we’re working on adding many more.  

SS: Well, one thing for sure Craig, there will not be any obstructed views or extra charge for premium seating at these shows!
