BWW Feature: Cabaret Artists Join Richard Skipper In Online Campaign Urging People To #Stayhome

Cabaret community staple Richard Skipper is on a mission to spread positivity. Often, Richard speaks of the need to veer away from the negative, to focus on optimism and joy, to celebrate people and life - that is why his brand is named Richard Skipper Celebrates. Well, now, Richard Skipper is celebrating staying home. Many people have used their social media to talk about how difficult it is for them to remain indoors, to remain under voluntary quarantine, to remain physically isolated from their friends and loved ones - and while it certainly is difficult, especially for people who live alone (we all feel your pain, friends!), it is essential, at this time, to stay at home and bring us closer to ending this global health crisis.

So Richard sent up a call to arms to all of his friends in the cabaret, concert, and nightclub communities:

I hope you are doing great in the midst of this craziness! I have started a #StayHome campaign! I reached out to Adam Rothenberg of #CallMeAdam and he did a brilliant job! I will be sharing this on my various media platforms! This is what you do: Film yourself doing a 30 second PSA encouraging people to STAY HOME.Go to your favorite room or favorite corner and film yourself and be as creative as you can. Then send to! I want to flood social media with this! Are you up for the challenge?

The response to Richard's flare was immediate and it was impressive. Daily, his Youtube channel filled up with messages of encouragement, reminding viewers of the necessity, even the benefits of staying home. Why... just look at some of the videos Richard has collected from the artists of the cabaret world!
