Need to book some acts: Better get on Facebook

So as the 15th May draws closer for the Underground Comedy Club’s opening night, I feel it is time to book in the 2 x 10 min and 5 min acts.

The whole point of the night is to have a variety of acts performing from pros to newbies. I want to support newbies (like myself) to grow and get stage time. I also want to pay all the acts. This is something people have told me is not normal.

Who cares about ‘what is normal’ I feel that if an act is putting in the effort to write material and then travel to a gig they should be thanked. Therefore I will be paying all acts.

Right, it seems the best place to find comics is Facebook. There are loads of groups for stand-up comics looking for, or offering, spots at different venues.

Dan Tambling is a stand-up comedian, sketch comedy writer, actor and producer of ‘12 sketches in a London house’. This is his blog.
