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.
