Celebrate Diversity with These Spoken Word Artists!

Neon Entertainment provides live entertainers for college events! We have always been a premier provider of live entertainment, including comedy, music, magic and more, but the pandemic certainly didn’t help live event booking. We were able to navigate and evolve to provide some really engaging virtual programming, and as we are all still getting back on our feet we wanted to remind our readers and users of the outstanding LIVE acts that we have to offer. We have some truly incredible talent to offer your show, but today we wanted to focus on how you can help celebrate diversity with live poetry that leaves an impact.
