25th Annual Def Comedy Jam Awards

​The Def Comedy Jam 25th Anniversary Special was held on September 5th at The Beverly Hilton. Encore provided all lighting, internal audio, projection, and staging for this prestigious event that featured comedy legends Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Craig Ferguson, and more. The show will air on Netflix once post production is complete.

Encore Director of Sales David Umfleet negotiated and worked directly with the Technical Supervisor and Scenic Designers for the Golden Globes. Michael Cooper, Bruce Ryan, and Larry Weimer are very well connected in the industry and have multiple options for equipment rental needs. They chose to work with Encore because of our “one-stop shop” strategy that would ultimately make load in/load out faster and more efficient.
