Why Use StandUpComedyToGo.com For Your Private Event? What makes StandUpComedyToGo.com different from other bookers?
When you Hire a Comedian for your private event or party in MD, DC, VA, most comedy bookers simply dispatch a comic to your event expecting you to provide the stage, sound system & spotlight. At StandUpComedyToGo.com “It’s all in the delivery”. We provide the talent and all that equipment, as much or as little as you need. You make only 1 phone call instead of 3 or 4. We also provide necessary signage and photos of the comics performing at your event as well as a faux brick wall backdrop to make it feel more like a real comedy club show.
We will help you select the best local talent by emailing you video clips from our stable of approximately 100 local comics. If time allows, you can see them perform live at one of our 3 weekly public shows to help you decide. We can do G, PG or R-rated shows.
Why choose us? Most bookers simply dispatch the comedian to your address assuming you are providing the stage, spotlight, and sound system. We provide the comedian AND any sound, stage and spotlighting needed, as well as an on-site producer to ensure everything runs well for your event.
Most comedians secretly dread private gigs because they lack one or all the crucial elements needed to have a good show: stage, sound, spotlight, & strategic seating of the audience. All the “production values” you have at a real comedy club. But private gigs are infamous for lacking these. Every veteran comic has a bag of horror stories from previous private gigs.
There is usually a sound system provided-that’s a no-brainer, but a stage, spotlight, backdrop curtain, & strategic seating of audience are not obviously crucial to the “non-com” general public, so they are often overlooked, making the comics job much harder than performing at a real comedy club. Thus the dread.
We solve this dilemma by providing all this equipment along with the comics(hence our slogan “It’s all in the delivery”), and an on-site producer to make sure we correctly duplicate the comedy club look & feel.
This puts the comic back in his “natural habitat” where he is most comfortable.
This will ensure the comic has fun on stage. If the comic is having fun onstage, your audience will too.
