The Hugh Cooney Show

Hugh Cooney is a unique artist & comedy talent who has been making online videos for the last 15 years.
He's previously has lots of success with his work on YouTube & Facebook (videos getting over 1/4 million views but maintaining the quirkiness of his earlier work & avoiding the more broad appeal of people in a similar field.
Hugh has previously put on some smaller live events but I'd felt he's never put together a live show on the scale to which he's capable.

I approached him with a view to take on producing & promoting 'The Hugh Cooney Show'. Booking the venue 8 months in advance to allow the time to produce, film & rehearse the show & have it as polished as possible by the day of the event & allowing time to shoot the huge amount of video material that's needed fo a show such as this. 

Hugh, alongside Charlie Doran who films & edits Hugh's films acted as VJ for the show, creating lots of on screen material for Hugh to react too. This made the show quite complex as Hugh would need to hit a very high number of queues throughout the night as well as remembering the script.

Hugh & Charlie had a smaller show they'd already performed at a festival in Ireland but I pushed them not to just repeat the format & to take this as far as we possibly good. Going as far as hiring a light aircraft to do some filming.
I suggesting a few new segment ideas to create more crowd interaction as well as some social media elements allowing crowd interaction before & after each performance. I also encouraged the guys to use a lot of on-stage props which I had to source and ship whilst staying within our relatively tight budget.

Having Hugh & Charlie so closely integrated into the promotion process also greatly helped, we were able to put out promotional videos quickly to boost sales when they dipped.

We eventually put on 2 shows, both of which sold out & were extremely well received. Producing & promoting both shows was an exhausting but rewarding process.
