How to Get Them Butts in Seats
for Your Comedy Night

I hear you’re looking to put on a live comedy night at your bar/restaurant. Well, I’ll tell you what – that’s a damn fine idea. People love to laugh, and they especially love to do it with a drink in their hand.

Now, if you want to fill your seats, you gotta get creative. And I’m not just talking about adding a splash of cranberry to your vodka tonic. I’m talking about some real marketing genius.

As promised, I’ve got some tips and tricks for you to pack your venue for your upcoming live comedy night! With these strategies, you’ll have butts in seats and a night of laughs and good times.

  1. Social Media: Use your social media accounts to promote your event. Create an eye-catching graphic or video, and share it across all your platforms. You can even boost your post to reach a wider audience.  With The Pub & Grub Comedy Tour™, you get a killer post with all the juicy details of your comedy night. You get  eye-catching graphics and videos to grab their attention. All included in the service package.

  2. Email Newsletter: Send an email to your subscribers with all the details of your comedy night. Include the date, time, ticket price, and a link to purchase tickets. You can also offer a discount code or early bird special to incentivize people to buy tickets. Hell, if you’re feeling generous, throw in a free drink or basket of onion rings. People love that stuff.

  3. Street Team: Enlist the help of a street team to promote your event. These are your foot soldiers, your guerilla marketers. They’re gonna hit the streets, put up flyers, and talk to anyone who’ll listen about your comedy night. And if they’re really good, they might even convince people to come in for a drink or two. Get your staff to talk to  customers in your bar. Offer them a free raffle ticket for a grand prize or a small commission for each ticket sold.

  4. Partnerships: Partner with other businesses in your area to promote your event. This could be a local radio station, newspaper, or even a nearby hotel. Offer them a discount code to share with their customers, and in exchange, you can promote their business at your event. You scratch their back, they’ll scratch yours. And if you’re lucky, you might even get a mention on the airwaves.
