Comedy For A Cause facilitate comedy shows for sports clubs across Australia which feature some of the best comedians from both the Sydney and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
We arrange a partnership with a local club, who will help promote the event. (Or we can come to you). We provide all of the lighting, sound and staging needs. And most importantly, we offer you professional event management and marketing advice that will not only help your organisation make huge profits through ticket sales, but also gain sponsorship and raise additional funds on the night through things like raffles and auctions.
Our shows generally feature: a top notch emcee, 2-3 support acts and an internationally touring headliner. Run time is approximately 2 hours, with a 15-20 minute intermission, during which raffle/auction items can be sold.
Tickets are usually sold for $30-$35 for adults or $20 for students of which we charge a small portion.
The shows can be All Ages and 100% appropriate for students, without substituting the exceptionally high standard of the show.
These events are always an enormous success and appeal to a much broader audience than your typical dry and weary fundraisers like trivia nights.
(Please keep in mind, all of the details described here are flexible and can be tailored to meet your individual needs).
