A comedy show is entertaining on all levels. Comedians that come look to have fun, crack entertaining jokes, and have everyone leave feeling jovial and upbeat. Some comedy events are for adults, while most can be appreciated by those of all ages. Comedians usually are on top of what is current in the news and what has happened locally, which can grab the attention of the audience and keep them involved.
Depending on the comedy show, you can have comedians that bring all kinds of humorous, provocative acts. Seinfeld, Louis C.K., George Carlin, Chris Rock and Kevin Hart are just some of the legends of the standup circuit who have been able to make people keel over in pain from laughing so hard. The reason they can do it is because they have a following and are masters of their craft.
If you are hosting or planning to showcase a featured comedy event, there are a few tips you should know to be successful before venturing into the unknown of comedy.
- First make sure you have an audience. A comedy event is a great niche market and no one can put a price on the stress relief they get from laughing for 2 hours straight. But make sure if you plan on making this a consistent event, that you will be able to bring people to the seats.
- The comedic makeup of the performers must be congruent. If you carry three comedians for an event; you don’t want one that is very vulgar and the other two comedic acts to be clean.
- One last thing you should know to make is that location is huge part of the process. Bars, nightclubs, festivals, arenas, music halls, and outdoor events can all hold larger audiences and give you a more engaging atmosphere.
If you can correctly bring the funny, the people will come just to hand you the money. As the famous Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughter, is a day wasted.” Don’t waste your time having a comedy event that isn’t something you invested to make you best work.
