As of right now, no indoor shows. The shows that are happening are in "open air" theaters with
social distancing protocols. No audience participants and entrances and exits into & out the theaters
are "one way". All seating is being sanitized between shows.

My friend Mike Bliss is doing his show outdoors.

Good thing for Mike he is so creative. His show was LOTS of audience stuff. Obviously he has to change that, but if anyone can adapt it is him.


Oh I love Mike! Yeah I’m guessing he can’t do much pick-pocketing right now can he? I love his rope-tie escape, he makes it look so easy!

I had 4 confirmed bookings this weekend and there couldn’t have been more of a contrast. Here is a report:

The first one cancelled with 24-hours notice because of local outbreak of covid-19.

The second was a crowed swim club with not one face mask to be seen.

The third was restaurant. When I got there I discovered they had decided to close. No one told me.

The forth was a small outdoor party for about 20 people in which every child and adult (including me) wore a mask the entire show.

Outlook: I have no idea!

Ken- I think you summed it up quite well - seems to be anyone’s guess.

My fall tour just officially cancelled today... and a large event in JANUARY cancelled earlier this week.

Meanwhile Disney World is opening up with cast member previews today and annual passholders by reservation later this week.

The fireworks business is equally getting destroyed. Last year I had 12 shows, this year I was lucky to get 2. 7 shows got cancelled within 48 hours. Pyro Spectaculars normally has 400 - 500 shows on the 4th... this year they had 10.

My big tours are all gone until at LEAST 2021 but the promoter is starting to book "Drive In" events. Originally it was just in LA and NYC but now there are around a dozen starting all over the country. Creativity is winning!

I read that Nevada is going backwards with more restrictions, but I'm not sure if that actually means anything? Florida said they were closing bars but then opened a loophole that allowed bars to stay open if they are serving food.

It is a political football. It will go back and forth.

Las Vegas itself will have trouble controlling patrons. There is no way people going there with the expectation of "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" will capitulate to severe restrictions and social distancing and masks. It simply won't happen.

Again not taking a position on right or wrong. I, unlike EVERYONE on the internet, am simply not qualified as an infectious disease expert. I am only telling you what I see, and what people will do.

I actually saw, of all things tonight in Branson a FULL TOUR BUS!

Holy cow I couldn't believe it. Took picture as proof. A tour bus with actual tourists.

I have NO IDEA how smart THAT is. Might have been a family, or whatever. Seemed very odd though.

Believe me that was the LAST thing I thought I might see.
