Today I talk with CLUB 52 member and PATREON supporter Susan Sussman about setting up your first fundraiser show. Susan is a comedienne from Norfolk, VA who I met through the podcast. She followed through on some of the suggestions I made in THIS BLOG about setting up a show. Then we talked live about the event. And, next I followed up afterwards to see how it went.
Lot’s of great info on this episode about setting a comedy show, whether it be your own show or a comedy fundraiser show.
We cover a lot of ground, including:
- How many comics to have on the show
- How long the comedy show should be
- Where to set ticket prices
- Stage, sound and lights set up
- Expecting the unexpected at a fundraiser show
- Marketing and advertising
- Food and beverage
- Structuring the line up of the show
and much, much more.
CLUB 52 IS THE ONLY WEEKLY PROGRAM
DESIGNED 100% FOR COMEDIANS!
“Club 52” is a 52 week, email based stand-up program. It will include a weekly challenge designed to help you become a better comedian. This year long program will feature an email every Friday from me. I will ask you to take a serious look at some of your business practices, writing processes, performance techniques, branding, marketing and a whole lot more.
The program starts the week you join and continues for 52 weeks as long as you are still supporting the podcast through Patreon at the $7 a month level.
