About this Event

In this week’s Zoom Dive we talk to Clara Heimerdinger, founder of Nice N’ Spiky comedy to demystify working in the entertainment industry. Clara is a live entertainment booker, promoter, and producer who cut her teeth working for the prestigious BBC for over 15 years whilst building ‘Nice n Spiky’ as a side hustle.

Two years ago Clara decided to make her side hustle, her full-time job, and has since worked with some of the biggest names in the comedy industry from Jimmy Carr, to London Hughes and many more. In this session, Clara will talk about her experience to date and the key things you need to know when working with entertainers. We might even have a special guest. So watch this space.

This week we discuss:

  • The complex world of working with artists and entertainers
  • The importance of authentic relationships with the people you work with
  • Spotting talent and risk-taking
  • Pivoting comedy to a new digital landscape - The lessons so far
