Beth is a publicist, specialized in entertainment and events. She worked at a big-time PR agency for a decade, managing clients like Verizon go90, Hardee’s, FedEx and Anheuser-Busch (including 5 years as lead on Bud Light’s special events and sports programming: Final Four, COPA, NFL, Super Bowl, “Whatever, USA”). She left the corporate world to work with funny people, including actor and comedian David Koechner (Anchorman, The Goldberg’s). Beth has developed and enacted publicity plans with major movie studios (Paramount, Universal, Drafthouse) and television networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, Comedy Central). She’s also worked with comedy clubs across the country, promoting stand-up shows through interviews, local press tours and social media. Here in the STL, Beth has publicized shows for a variety of stand-ups including Tim Meadows, Ben Bailey, Michael Yo, Ian Bagg and Roy Wood Jr.
Each June, you can find Beth making the world better at Big Slick Celebrity Weekend in Kansas City. Since 2014, she’s raked in oodles of national attention (and millions of fundraising dollars) for the charitable efforts of Koechner, Paul Rudd, Rob Riggle, Jason Sudeikis, Eric Stonestreet and their dozens of generous, famous friends.
Jon, known as “Beebs,” is a live event production specialist with more than 16 years of global experience. He’s served as a site manager at Scotland’s iconic Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Glasgow’s West End Festival, as well as managing events ranging from Corporate Launches to E-Sports Competitions.
Beebs was introduced to the St Louis while managing a UGC e-sports tournament in 2016. He was attracted to the region’s entrepreneurial scene and moved to the United States in 2017 and founded ByJack, a merchandise production company aimed at defeating the industry’s “minimum order” pricing stigma (no, you don’t need to order 25 to get a good deal). In less than two years, ByJack has attracted more than 50 clients including The Muny Theatre, Taste of Downtown St Louis, Cosmic Reunion Music and Art Festival and TipperMusic.
Beebs currently jet sets between London and St. Louis as he manages major events in both cities - from producing large scale corporate shows in London to spreading hay at Soulard Oktoberfest.
Along with Travis Terrell, Chris has served as co-host and producer for the We Are Live! podcast (and radio empire) since its inception in 2015. In addition, Chris co-hosted the “National Bagg Radio” podcast with comedian Ian Bagg (part of Bill Burr’s All Things Comedy network). He’s also appeared on “The Adam Carolla Show” and “The Koy Pond with Jo Koy”
When not interviewing the nation’s top stand-ups or comedy writing, Chris can be found networking with area businesses - concepting and selling custom, entertainment-centric event sponsorships and content / podcast packages for brands across the Midwest. Just some of his (dozens of sponsor) relationships include Vess Soda, Memphis Grizzlies, Edward Jones, Liberty Mutual Insurance and Urban Chestnut Brewing.
In STL, you can catch Chris hosting weekly, local comedy showcases, as well as “Target Practice Live!” (a comedy roast battle he co-created). Behind the scenes, Chris is consistently developing new projects for radio, television and, of course, podcasting.
