We have been supplying comedians for private and corporate shows for over 20 years and we also own and operate over 8 "Club Comedy" comedy clubs so we feel that we have the experience and know how to make your event a huge success. Hiring a comedian is much more than watching a few minutes of a video clip and then making a choice. We have booked our comedians in many types of events and have personally seen how the results can drastically vary based on the particular event and the comedian used. We have also owned and operated several fulltime comedy clubs as well as 2 banquet rooms in the past. This experience has allowed us to better understand how to best match a comedian to a specific event in order to assure a successful show. Please read on and take your fill of information and then complete our quote form so we can get the ball rolling. There's no commitment, just a fast and easy way of finding the best comedian match for your event. Sometimes a comedian is a bad idea for certain events, and we may actually tell you that too.
We are going to assume that you are looking for a very funny comedian for an upcoming event and it may even be this weekend! You probably have little to no experience with this process and you don't want to be the person responsible for hiring a crappy comedian...correct? If so, we would like to assist you in the process. Please take a moment to read our explanation below on "hiring a comedian 101" and then complete our short "request a quote form" so we can contact you with some great comedians that will rock your event.
Hiring A Comedian 101:
Location - We have comedians located in most major cities nationwide.
The closer you are to a large city, the more comedians there are to choose from
and supply and demand will work in your favor. Most comedians understand
that travel is part of the comedy business so don't worry if you are 4 or 5
hours drive from a major city. But if you are out in the "sticks" and you
want a great show, you can expect to have to flip the bill for air fare.
This typically will add about $500 hundred dollars to the bill.
Price - Let me guess... you don't want to spend a lot? Good news is that you don't have to spend too much to get a comedian for your event. However, you must also realize that any comedian who is extremely funny, is getting a decent paycheck for what they do. So experience and skill will cost you. You can also expect to pay a few bucks more for a comedian that does extremely conservative or "clean" act because their are fewer of them and so they can charge more. Most people are looking for a PG13 rated comedian who will be able to perform adult subject matter with limited or no cursing. This type of comedian can do 45 to 90 minutes of extremely funny material and they generally charge $1200 to $2500 per show. You will find comedians who will work for less than these prices, however our experience with no-shows and offensive material has lead us to no longer offer "budget acts" so expect to spend at least $1000 for this event. On occasion you can get a better deal if your comedy event is on an "off" day or your show is on a travel day in the comedians area at that time. Depending on the venue and comedian, you may be required to supply a PA system and lighting. Do not try and save money by using a banquet room ceiling-type PA system for comedy, because the poor sound quality will drastically reduce the quality of the show. Not to mention that the comedian will hate you after the show...lol.
Type of shows - We believe that some comedians have better shows for private events than they do for comedy clubs. Knowing what type of comedian to use for what type of event is something we are very good at and take pride in doing. There are straight stand up comedians, ventriloquist comedians, magician comedians, acrobat comedians, prop comedians, comedy teams, musical comedians and so many more styles to choose from. So we would need to learn a bit about your event in order to suggest what type of comedian would work best for you.
Private or public shows - There are many things that are done differently based on what type of comedy audience will be at your event so please take a moment to read our short info sheet on "before you hire a comedian".
Equipment - All of our shows have full lighting and PA systems available if you are unable to provide one. A comedian on a bad PA system is like a surgeon operating with a rusty spoon, they can both get the job done, but its gonna be ugly!
Well that's the basic info that you need to know. Anything more would really just be a bunch of fluff and BS to try and sell you on our company. We have been doing business for over 20 years and the majority of our business is from word of mouth and referrals so we didn't feel that it was necessary to go crazy with an elaborate website marketing campaign. So if you would like to give us a shot, we would love the opportunity to prove ourselves and add you to our growing list of satisfied customers that we are also happy to call friends. We are pretty down to earth people and our business is making people laugh so you can expect a great experience when doing business with us. We wish you the best of success with your event no matter what company you choose.
