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.
