HOW IT WORKS
Like we said its beautifully simple, we know it works and here's how.
We host a night of Stand Up Comedy for you and your guests.
Firstly let us say, that there is NO cost to you or your charity for our service.
Now before you say " But, Stand Up Comedy can be risky, how do we know the acts will be suitable?" Don't worry Anne and myself have been putting on events like this for a long time, we know what works. We've even created a FAQ page if you'd like to read it then press here
We work with over 100 comedians up and down the UK and some from around the World. We are able to match our comedians to your guests and make sure everyone has a great time. During our due diligence we will find out the expected demographic of the audience and book the acts accordingly. For instance a comic and their material may go down a storm at the local rugby club but, not at the village hall ! Rest assured we book the right comedians for the right venue.
How do we make money and raise funds for your charity?
Again very simple. We charge a ticket price which we keep, usually set around £12.50. We have our own online booking system which we use to sell the tickets. This covers all our expenses including paying of the comedians, booking the venue and obtaining a drink license(if necessary) and promotion ( we do a lot of promotion!) to make every event a success. If you think your supporters would pay more for a ticket and you want to charge your own amount, then we will pass any extra revenue on to you.
Your charity makes money from providing the drinks and food, trust me there is a lot more money in food and drink than there is in comedy. To give you an idea, one of our regular nights ( A Community Centre) has about 130 people attending and they take just less than £3000 at the bar !! On the flip side one of our smallest events had only 32 people attend and even though they were really only drinking soft drinks they still managed to raise over £300.
The fact is that once our charities see how successful, fun and hassle free our events are, they then wish to add them to their annual calendar of events. Some as many as 4 time a year.
If you'd like to know more about what we do, what we expect from you and how really simple we make the whole event, then keep scrolling. Or if you are really keen then use the link below, we would love to hear from you.

Decide if you want to have a raffle or auction to raise further funds
Sit back, have a great night and watch the funds roll in
Decide when you want to do it all again
* When it comes to stocking the bar. There are many local firms that will offer a sale or return option. We can help you source them.
Also we have found that if you engage with local suppliers and offer them some free advertising on or around the night. Then they quite often will do you fantastic deals price wise meaning you can maximise your profit. It usually consists of adding their name to our promotional stuff or allowing them to have a banner in the bar area.
We here at Comedy At Work will help with all of this.
Here at Comedy At Work we have had many success stories and have helped to raise thousands of pounds for various charities through our events.
