For two decades, Jeff Beacher has been a true media visionary, starting his career as “the best showman on the Las Vegas Strip” and beyond before reinventing how celebrity relationships connect with businesses across entertainment, investment, and emerging technologies like AI. In the model of legendary showman P.T. Barnum, Beacher has proved that the art of entertaining is at the very core of enterprise.
Long before the term “influencer” became a buzzword throughout popular culture, Beacher was moving the needle across industries, curating global campaigns, raising brand awareness and increasing profitability via his remarkable relationships throughout media and entertainment. Through his sphere of influence, he seamlessly connects consumers, businesses, and governments all the way from Hollywood to Africa.
Beacher’s visionary start began with the wildly successful, highly acclaimed vaudeville theatrical production, Beacher’s Madhouse. From its start in Madison Square Garden and Broadway in New York to Beacher’s rise as the Las Vegas Strip’s youngest headliner in history to the man behind Hollywood’s hottest production at the Rosevelt Hotel. Beacher’s Madhouse became a truly legendary variety show. During the show’s multi-year residency at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Beacher earned the key to the city and he was dubbed “the Greatest Showman on the Strip” by Rolling Stone magazine.
Along with his Vegas success, Beacher’s Madhouse became the first headlining show in the history of LA’s legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel before kicking off an 81-city tour. Capitalizing on those successes, he returned victoriously to the entertainment capital of the world, selling millions of tickets and selling out shows night after night at the iconic MGM Grand.
Kelly Osbourne and David Arquette were his creative partners at the Madhouse, helping usher in A-list crowds that often included Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, Mick Jagger, Christian Bale, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Kim Kardashian, just to name a few.
Beacher was living the dream. Tour brought him across the country, where he’d always stay in luxury suites and penthouses at the very best hotels. For 17 years, Beacher would live in the most stylish hotels in the world.
Late nights entertaining, sold-out shows and constant business deals took a toll on Beacher’s health, however. When his weight reached 440 pounds, he decided it was time to wind down Beacher’s Madhouse and reset.
He completely reengineered his lifestyle, upgrading his diet, amping up his fitness routine and embracing a positive outlook on life. Down hundreds of pounds and feeling better than ever, Beacher became an emblem of his new motto: “Happy and Healthy!”
In 2021, he founded the Healthy and Happy Foundation to help low-income people afford life-changing weight loss treatment. Beacher also empowers others to make huge health changes as a sought-after public speaker.
That refreshed mindset offered Beacher new insight – from his early days giving comedians and artists a place to connect intimately with crowds of fans, his calling has always been bringing people together for the betterment of all. Thus, the entrepreneurial showman launched his Beacher Media Group, a place where he could elevate those close one-on-one relationships to their truest potential.
Forbes described him as “one of those entrepreneurs who got into the game early on, connecting the two worlds before we even knew the word ‘influencer.’” As a leader in the space, he surrounded himself with top-tier clients like Airbnb, Lyft, Wag!, Hard Rock Hotels, Gopuff, and Wynn Resorts, deepening their relationships with Mariah Carey, Beyonce, The Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and thousands of stars ranging from celebrities to athletes to influencers and moguls. These global campaigns created tens of billions of social media impressions, and billions of dollars in media value.
Bloomberg credited Beacher with helping turn Airbnb into a bonafide luxury brand as its lead entertainment relationship consultant, introducing the then-startup to close friends like Mariah Carey and more. In addition to his role at Airbnb, he currently serves as an entertainment consultant for ChatGPT.
Beacher Media Group’s Tourism division’s first major client was the Dominican Republic. After experiencing multiple PR disasters, the Dominican Republic was able to attract Beacher’s help as they were looking to reclaim their position as the Caribbean’s #1 tourist destination and turn their country into one of the most coveted global tourism destinations in the world.
This collaboration elevated the Dominican Republic to an iconic, luxury destination and a power brand by adding influencer value, and by building awareness, trust, and interest in the country. The small country of 10 million enjoyed dozens celebrity stays, billions of earned media and social media impressions, and $100s of millions in ad value—raising the overall GDP and future tourism appeal. In short order, Beacher Media Group was able to reverse the lagging tourism trends, leading to increased visitors and average spend.
Beacher Media Group’s roots in Hollywood are well-established. Its Entertainment Division produced The Gong Show, featuring Mike Myers, Chelsea Handler, Jennifer Aniston, Priyanka Chopra and others, as well as launching Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution with names such as Enrique Iglesias and Taraji P. Henson, in addition to helping create Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas. Beacher Media Group also collaborated with Doug DeLuca, the executive producer of The Jimmy Kimmel show, to create Fox’s The House, which aired its 3rd season in early 2022. He co-produced the thriller Wash Me in the River, starring Robert De Niro and John Malkovich, and has produced multiple podcast series, including The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show and a series with the late Broadcast Hall of Famer Larry King.
Fully embracing Beacher’s motto of “happy and healthy,” Beacher Media Group and Beacher Ventures pursue relationships and partnerships that contribute to global good.
In 2022, Beacher co-founded 444 Capital with the D’Amelio family – Charli, Dixie, Heidi and Marc — and renowned Silicon Valley fund manager Doug Renart, primarily investing in female founders and other traditionally underrepresented populations of entrepreneurs.
He also works with Big Idea Ventures, a leading investor in the food technology and agritech sector. BIV has been behind major innovators in the alternative protein industry and continues its positive impact by partnering with governments around the world to fight food insecurity and forge new food ecosystems. Beacher’s other investments include co-founding Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream with his longtime friend and famous WeHo restauranteur, Craig Susser.
As Beacher continues, his world is only expanding. He’ll return to his roots in October 2023, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Beacher’s Madhouse with his A-list friends, VIP fans and unforgettable entertainers on the stage. The story of Beacher and the Madhouse, full of massive successes and big failures, is also being adapted into a documentary.
The secret to Beacher Media Group’s success is simple – Beacher and team curate brilliantly integrated, highly impactful stories at every level. These authentic, experiential narratives have a proven track record of leaving celebrities happy, and their fans more engaged than ever. The showman’s extensive expertise, deep pool of contacts and a highly polished, global savoir faire unleash the potential in every relationship and every business opportunity.
