It's rare that I take the time to talk about shows in Las Vegas; mostly because the Social Media and online marketing for these shows and headliners are typically so poorly executed that it really doesn't merit mention in a column focused on those topics... that's not to say I don't see my fair share of shows in town; but the launch of 'The Coop Show' at Planet Hollywood's Sin City Theatre really caught my attention because of it's specific attention to Social Media marketing. It's also worth mentioning given the huge Headliner news with Britney Spears in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood -- this great show may not have all the production value of Britney Spears -- but it also doesn't cost $350 for a ticket.
The Coop Show marketing team invested some time and effort in launching a strong campaign, in advance of the opening of the show, about Sean E. Cooper and the show coming... then amazingly they launched the show with the support of discount powerhouse Groupon; which added more value to SEO and Social impact. Hook, line and sinker I put my $15 out on the line on an unknown show just on a whim... and was I ever surprised.
The Coop Show description reads:
The voices aren’t just in his head! The multi-talented Sean E. Cooper headlines this riotous 60 minute Las Vegas comedy show at Planet Hollywood. The Coop Show features dancers, a DJ, and a wide array of clothing and hats; as voices and ideas speak to him he can immediately share his wild sense of humor and deep rooted love of singing and dancing with the audience. Coop will take on some of his favorites like James Brown, Sammy Davis, Jr., Biggie Smalls and Michael Jackson, while the rest of the show is a total stream of consciousness.
It's a rather spot on description of the show; riotous is true -- Sean E. Cooper had me laughing at his silly antics the entire show -- and for once at the end of the show I was actually wanting to see more.
The Coop Show is headlined by Sean E. Cooper who I later found to also be the only male performer in 'Fanatsy' Topless Revue at the Luxor (which he still does). 'The Hardest Working Man in Vegas' as his DJ described him truly seems to be working his ass off with two different shows nightly.
Run, don't walk to see 'The Coop Show' at Planet Hollywood.
