The Three Hour Rule -
Why We Arrive Early for Shows

As someone who’s traveled quite a bit, I know firsthand how unpredictable it can be. And when you’re hosting a live comedy night, travel can throw a major wrench in your plans.

That’s why I wanted to touch base with you about the day of show arrival time. Look, I know you want everything to run like clockwork, but when it comes to travel, there’s no such thing as a sure thing.

Whether it’s flight delays, traffic jams, or just plain bad luck, there are a million things that can cause a comedian to arrive later than expected. And as someone who’s hosted plenty of shows, I can tell you that it’s just the nature of the beast.

So my advice to you, my friend, is to always treat the day of show arrival time as an estimate. That way, you won’t be caught off guard if the comedian shows up a little later than expected.

And don’t worry – if the comedian is running behind schedule, they’ll do everything they can to make it to the show on time. They want to be there just as much as you do.

We  follow the Three Hour Rule. That means we plant to arrive at the venue at least three hours before showtime

And why do we do that? To allow for any mishaps, of course.

We can account for any unforeseen circumstances. We can get settled in, check out the venue, and make sure everything is ready to go. And if there are any hiccups, we have plenty of time to work through them.

Plus, arriving early means we can get to know you and your staff better. We can chat, grab a drink, and make sure we’re all on the same page. And that’s always a good thing.

So there you have it. 

When it comes to travel, the only thing you can predict is that it’s unpredictable.

By arriving early, we can ensure that everything runs smoothly and everyone has a good time.

Just be flexible, roll with the punches, and you’ll be just fine.
