I love comedy, but besides my family, music is my biggest passion in life. Despite this, I would choose to do a comedy night over any other type of entertainment for many reasons. I mean just look at the photo I took of what this band needed. Can you believe all the things they require? Here’s what you need to put on a comedy show.
- A microphone and stand.
- Some basic lighting.
- A small stage.
And you are done. Pretty easy. Plus comedians are generally way less high-maintenance to deal with versus musicians. The atmosphere for a comedy show is one where your patrons are focused listening to a show, so pretty much no chance of fights. In almost 2 decades of doing this job, I can count on one hand the times I felt there was a need for a bouncer. And the final bonus is unlike a band, you only have to pay a couple comedians, (no sound person required) so the cost is lower as well. It seems like a no-brainer.
