Book A Comedian For Fundraiser Looking to hire a comedian for your fundraiser and need to know how to get started.  If you are looking for a comedian with lots of experience, I am your man. I have played 1000’s of shows across USA and Canada.

1. Hire the right comedian. The right comedian will makes the big difference for everyone, they’ll be saying how awesome your night was and offer continued support. Make sure to watch some video on the comedian, look at their work history and reviews. (Please see my reviews at bottom of the page)

2. Set up the room correctly. An improperly setup room can really damper a comedy show. There should be no barriers like a dance floor or silent auction between the comedian and the audience. The best set up room has the audience as close to the comedian as possible.

3. Have good sound, stage and lights. For the best show possible you are going to want to have a good sound system. Does the venue have a sound system? But has it been in place since the building was built, does it even work? Sometimes it works to get a local DJ to provide the sound, they will often have lights as well. A stage and lights are great, they make for the most professional show. Sometimes they aren’t available and the show can still go on. Sound system is the most important, they have to hear the comedian!

4. Decorate the venue to make it feel like your event. If budget is a concern just head to the dollar store and get some table cloths and things to dress the place up. Putting some snacks on the table, and other little details add up to make your event look customized. If you have banners , signs, and displays put them up. This is the opportunity to showcase!

5. Promote with word of mouth. Always make sure to speak highly of the event, if someone asks “Are the comedians funny”? The answer is yes, very funny, it will be an amazing night. You know this because you chose the right comedians. Get all the volunteers available to spread the word, put it on social media and have them help sell tickets directly.

When you need to hire a comedian for an event, book James Uloth to provide the laughter. Please read the reviews below. For more information email or call (323) 570-HAHA. If James is unavailable for your event, we can help find you another great comedian.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Comedian?

Youth Hockey Fundraiser Comedy Night | Hire A Comedian

Looking to have a youth hockey fundraiser comedy night? I can help walk you through the whole process in how to have a successful fundraiser. Get that extra funding to help with those expensive ice fees, equipment and travel.

The first part to having a great fundraiser is to hire amazing comedians. I’ll give you a few quick pointers.

1. Watch video: See video of the comedian, make sure they are funny and appropriate for your event.

Check out my videos.

2. Decide the level of content and make sure the comedian can deliver what you want: Will you have an all ages show, adults only with anything goes, or do you want something middle of the road?

I perform at and help provide comedians for between 60-100 fundraisers a year. I have become an expert at picking the right comics for the gig, and can offer my performance at any content level you request.Youth Hockey Fundraiser Comedy Night how to fundraiser for hockey

3. Is the comedian available: Check their calendar and get in touch.

If you see my calendar is already busy, please get in touch. I can sometimes move gigs around and I can also help find you hilarious comedians.

Now I’ll go through some steps on how to make your event a financial success. It’s the main reason you are holding a fundraiser. You can have many streams of income, here are some of the most common.

1. Ticket sales. The first line of income is from ticket sales, but there are lots more ways to earn revenue.

2. Sponsorships. Put together a good pitch for sponsorships and approach local business to help out.

3. Silent auction. Gather silent auction items. Try getting a variety of price points so that even people who don’t have large incomes can still find a way to contribute a little extra, and people with high incomes can get into a price battle over some fancy stuff.

4. Raffles. Have 50/50 draws, and other prize raffles to get that extra income.

Those are the most common income streams, and we see people raising a take home of between $4,000 – $8,000 quite frequently. We have had some events raise $20,000 or more!

Please let me know any questions you have, for more information and to book myself or other comedians please email, fill out the form below or call (323) 570- HAHA (4242)

What to do when you see someones dog | Comedian James Uloth

You see a dog. The first thing you want to do is run up and pet it while making kissing noises. Did you know this is actually a jerk move? Yes, you can frighten some dogs – and people – not every dog is as eager to give a stranger affection.petting a dog

A dog is a pack animal and if it doesn’t think you are part of it’s pack, it can take your signs of affection as aggression. You should always ask someone if they mind if you pet their dog.  Aren’t dogs cool? I love them and want to do whats best for them.

Some dogs like to be pet behind the ears and some like belly rubs. Sometimes the little dog is the boss of the big dog, and sometimes the big dog is the most cuddliest.

I’m not a scientist, but when dogs evolved they learned how to steal our hearts. I feel we owe them something for their loyalty and kindness. One of the major problems facing our pets is overpopulation. It is important to have your dog and cat spayed or neutered.

It improves the quality of life for all pets when we have population control. Both cats and dogs can breed very quickly and exceed the capacities of rescues and shelters.

Some of our shows, the tour goes across USA and Canada!

How can you help? Well, first of all be an advocate for your local animal rescue. Share their posts of animals needing homes, donate some money towards their continued operations and offer help when they need it.

My comedy tour, Raise The Woof has raised over 1 million and counting for animal rescues. What if I told you all you had to do was come out and laugh for an evening of entertainment, and you’d be helping out abandoned and homeless animals?

Laughter is a powerful thing, please support your local animal rescue. For more info on what we do email or call (323) 570 – HAHA (4242) or use the contact form below.

How To Hold a Fundraiser Comedy Night: Step by Step Guide

Here is a step by step guide on how to hold a fundraiser comedy night. Its a great way to not only raise money but use the event to gain publicity for your fundraising cause.

I’m the creator of 2 of the largest fundraiser comedy tours in the world, both Comedy For The Cure and Raise The Woof. Each have raised over $1,000,000 and combined operate in over 40 cities and towns on an annual basis. I love establishing new events and helping people go through the process of creating an event with comedy, which is something I am very passionate about.

Enough of my rabble. Here is a walk through that can help you get through the process.

1. Name the event! brand it something that relates to your cause and also implies comedy. Have some fun with it, hopefully this will become an annual event and this branding will help carry you into the future.

2. Get a venue and lock in the date. The earlier you can plan and get your venue secured the better. It assures you can get the facility you want! That being said there are typically many options for venues. I have played everything from church basements, back rooms at bars, high school auditoriums, community halls, banquet rooms, and so many more.

4.. Hire the right comedian. There are lots of people that call themselves comedians, but very few that can entertain at a fundraiser event. You’ll want a comedian that has experience and that will make you all look good for booking them in.

I’ve performed at and help put on more fundraisers than almost any comedian in history. It would be great if I could provide the entertainment at you event, if I can’t personally be there I can help hire the right comedians.

5. Have your tickets and posters ready to advertise. A great way to get the people out is to have your volunteers actively selling tickets.

6. Monetize the event. You’ll want to have points of sale in addition to ticket revenue. Most commonly you see raffles, silent auctions and 50-50 draws. You can make a tremendous amount of revenue, and even eclipse the ticket revenue by having these other points of sale.

7. Personalize the event. Make the venue have your organizations personal touch. It doesn’t take much extra time or funds to decorate the venue. It shows people at a subconscious level that this a special affair, and they should open those wallets and donate.
