Performing at G&B
How To Book Spots
Whether you’re new to comedy or a seasoned pro, we’d love to have you do a spot at G&B Comedy. When performing at a G&B night we do our best to help you find the right night for your style of comedy plus, depending on your performance style and experience, the right spot on the night’s line-up (you don’t want the pressure of being the opening act if you’ve only done a handful of gigs!). We have different lengths of sets ranging from 5 minutes to 7/8 minutes and 10/15 spots to the occasional longer spot and previews, all depending on your needs and experience. We want you to be able to get the most from your stage time so your audience can get the most from your performance.
Promoting You And Getting Your Name Out There
At G&B we want to make sure we do our best to help promote you and get your name out there. One such method is our roller banners. On stage at every G&B show we have a roller banner on which are laminated A4 pictures of each act, including their name plus any Twitter or Instagram details (in the event you want your social media promoted). The audience is encouraged to take a pic of the banner so they have the details and social media links of the acts they’ve enjoyed – your fanbase has to start somewhere! Before the show there are also numerous posts on Facebook and Twitter advertising your night’s line-up plus the occasional Instagram pics on the night during the show. One of the most popular promotional tools, however, is the show’s write-up next day. Done by your night’s MC, the write-up is a fun summary of the show in which everyone gets a mention (this isn’t a critique, so nothing bad is said 😊). This is then posted on the G&B Facebook page and the website’s Show Blog. If you join the G&B Facebook page you can scroll back through years of G&B shows.
How To Get A Spot At G&B
If this is your first time applying to G&B Comedy, just email us with “Booking G&B” in the subject line and we’ll send you our booking info as well as all the details of the things we’ll need from you like pics, social media etc to get you promoted. Alternatively, you can find everything on the G&B Comedy Facebook page along with the list of available spots for the coming month.
If you’ve performed at G&B before, all you need to do is email us with three preferred dates for each venue you wish to perform at. Feel free to apply for more than one venue. Requests for spots are done every Monday and occasionally on a Friday.
