WE BELIEVE IN WIN - WIN RESULTS
Below you can see how much you can raise, the cost and more. Contact us to chat about bonus discounts and incentive options.

To help you get a feel for what we are doing for the community, read this quote from one of our many happy clients that have run
multiple shows.

NOTE: Last year this client sold out 7 weeks in advance and raised over $11,000, this year they expect to sell out the day their tickets go on sale! We estimate they will raise over $15,000. (Update: They sold all 360 tickets the morning they went on sale - yay)!

Here’s a snippet of the email ralated to their ticket sales…

Indications at this stage are that we will exceed sales of our 300 tickets on that morning. I am not shitting you – fair dinkum! We are currently trying to work out how to best manage our sales to be fair to everybody.

LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK

YOUR PROFITS INFO

How Much Will You Make?
You’ll have a Top Line up of Comedians performing at your next fundraiser and we’ll do nearly all the organising for you. You’ll also receive an array of extra’s and a profit margin that will have you laughing all the way to the bank….Scroll down for all profits and incentives.

Ticket Prices
Your club or Charity Organisation sells tickets for $35. If you wish to do a meal and show package - $45 max.

NOTE: All ticket prices for 2016 Comedy Fundraising Festival must be set at $35 and reasonable table nibbles must be provided by the organisation on the night.

Selling Tickets
Your booking fee covers some of the hard work we do behind the scenes, while organising your event. It doesn’t cover the cost of the comedians, which is our responsibility. As a matter of fact, if you don’t sell lots of your tickets, paying the comedians will come out of our back pocket. That’s how confident we are!

Your booking fee goes up according to the amount of tickets you wish to sell. The more money you make, the more we make. That's very fair, but we also do that because we don’t want you to book 400 tickets when really they can only sell 200.

We want you to do very well out of your fundraiser and for the night to be perfect, so we like you to start small. We don’t want to secure a large venue for a client that can’t fill it up (that would mean the event isn’t full and that's not 100% perfect and 'BEING PERFECT' is our thing).

The scaled booking fee is in place, because we don't want you to be greedy, we want you to think carefully about how many tickets you can 'really' sell. Any small club can sell 200 tickets if they are proactive, but we recommend you start small and maybe move up to 300-400 the next year.



Your Huge Ticket Sale Profits
Booking Fee: $1440.00 (Paid 8 weeks prior to your event date).

(Click Here To See The Extra’s You Receive)

Final Payment of $1440.00 is due 2 weeks after your tickets are posted to your organisation.

NOTE: Nibbles on each table must be provided if tickets are $35.

NOTE: An additional fee may apply to events outside of major cities. Please contact us to see if we service your area.

Extra Bar Profits
If you run your own bar, you can expect to earn an extra $10+ per person.

100 @ $10 = $1000
200 @ $10 = $2000
300 @ $10 = $3000


Extra Raffle Profits
We recommend selling raffle tickets at the door as the audience enter the venue, we advise that you keep selling the tickets all night.

Always draw the prize at the end of the comedy show, it a great time to also thank everyone for their valued support.

It makes for a great end to the night.

Discounts
We might cut you a deal if you think you can handle it.

Below is a text message from one of our awesome clients, who we have helped to raise over $30,000 over the last 3 years. This year they nailed it and we expect this will now become a long term annual fundraising event…
NICK JOHNS - THE COMEDY EMPIRE

Nick, Fiona and crew, thanks for a fantastic show at Caboolture Snakes Junior Rugby League Club last night. Absolutely hilarious, we will be in contact again soon for another show!
Tim Wood - Caboolture Junior Rugby League Club
Stand Up Comedians Comedy Fundraising Brisbane
Nick it was an absolute pleasure to host your 4 comedians at Wondai last night. We all had a blast, "heaps" of laughs, and can't wait until next year's function. And to raise a "shit-load" of money as well is "unreal". Still on cloud 9!
Kylie Ward - Wheatlands State School P&C

Thank you for all your advice, help and hard work over the past few months. We have had a blast putting all this together. None of which would have been possible without you. What you are doing is very special and we are proud to be part of it all. Thank you.

One person actually had to leave because they had just had sergery that required stitches and they were laughing that much they were scared they might burst!!!!! I thought that was pretty good going, they must of been laughing pretty hard.
Jenna - Mortlake Kindergarten
Mortlake Comedy Night Fundraising
The principal, the teachers and the parents got bnehind this event! We love it when a community comes together to laugh in a bid to raise funds for things like a new playground for the kids. Even the local pub advertised the event and it wasnt even held at their venue - that's one jolly supportive community! What a great little town, we hope to go back!

As a comedian you have a huge variety of gigs, some are brilliant and some are just terrible. What makes a big difference is how well it is organised. All the gigs I've done for The Comedy Empire have been absolutely fantastic, great venue and audience. One in particular at a soccer club I would rate as my all time favourite, it was a pure joy. Nick would be one the most passionate and professional promoters in the country.
Fiona Mcgary - Comedian
"Fun, professional, well-run gigs, organised by someone who loves, lives and breathes comedy. I had a ball. Nice to work with someone who cares so much."

I have performed several times for The Comedy Empire. Each time a pleasure. Well organised, well run & well attended. As a comic I can not ask more than that. Very professional. I will be back for more.

You will always see a strong, funny and well balanced lineup of comics at a Comedy Empire show. Professionally managed, laughter guaranteed.
Mick Meredith
The Comedy Empire is very much unlike the British Empire in that they have embraced this Indian comic as an equal. Nick Johns & The Comedy Empire provides the perfect balance of servicing both performers & clients. I always look forward to performing for The Comedy Empire & their audiences.
