The bottom line is this, we care what our favorite celebrities are doing. They intrigue and excite us on a daily basis. So what if I told you there was a way to stay connected with your favorite Musicians, actors, directors etc?! Celebrity engagement with an app is an elusive goal for many a startup. But CEO and co-founder Andrew Maltin dove right in with his new app, Hang w/. Maltin is one of many L.A.-based tech entrepreneurs trying to take advantage of the town's access to high-profile talent. Maltin's app connects celebrities with fans to share content the moment it's happening.
Bello's unique talent is combining jaw-dropping daredevil stunts and hysterical comedy! His motto? "No audiance member should need more than the edge of his seat!" He's amazed over 40 million people in his live performances over the last decade. He's the first person in Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey's 140 year+ history to have a production named after him. "Bellobration" featured a cast of hundreds of human performers, elephants, horses, dogs, and audience members all donning wigs of Bello's trademark hair!
