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 james@jamesuloth.com or call (323) 570-HAHA. If James is unavailable for your event, we can help find you another great comedian.

How to Have a Fundraiser Comedy Night A Fundraising Guide

Having a successful fundraiser comedy night can bring in between $4,000 and $16,000, we have worked with organizations that have pulled in $80,000 from a single fundraising comedy event.

James has been performing and helping to produce fundraising comedy nights since 2003. He’s the creator of 2 of the largest fundraiser comedy tours in history www.WoofRaise.com and www.ComedyForTheCure.com. Both of the tours have raised over $1 Million dollars each, and have annual events in over 40 cities across Canada and USA.

With the experience he has from producing these tours he can help give you some tips on having a very successful night of comedy. When its time to hire a comedian, get in touch with us. We have hand selected and vetted all of our talent.

How to Have a Fundraiser Comedy Night.

1. Have a committee or group of people working together to make your comedy night a success. The more people you can have helping sell tickets and put the word out in the community, the more successful it will be. The most powerful advertising is word of mouth. There will always be some members of the group who are more social butterflies and will sell lots more tickets, find those people and encourage them :)

2. Pick the right comedian or comedians. Knowing what audience you expect to come out, hire the appropriate comedian. A fundraiser comedy night is different than just having a comedy night at a bar or comedy club. It takes a special kind of comedian to perform for an audience that comes out to support your fundraiser.

James Uloth has been performing comedy since 2003 and has played for 100’s of fundraisers and done over 3000’s of shows in 4 different coutnries. If you need a comedian that is versatile and with a long resume have James play your event.

3. Choose the right date. Make sure you aren’t competing directly with any huge events in your community. There is often no ideal time, you’ll be competing against something and that is just the law of averages. But don’t go head to head with a huge branded annual event that the entire town goes to i.e. the 11th annual chili cook off.

4. Promote, promote, promote. Make sure to get the word of mouth out there like we mentioned in #1. Also send out press releases and phone/email the local media. On top of raising money on just this event, you’ll want to raise the profile of what you are fundraising for. A comedy night is a great reason to be reaching out to the media and letting them know who you are.

5. Have volunteers available for the day of the event. Make sure you have enough support to help set up the show room. Many hands make light work. You’ll also need people to be managing the door and taking tickets. Even though you are fundraising, people will try and sneak in if they can….. believe us we have seen it many times. Make sure to have a control system with hand stamps or wristbands.

6. Have a silent auction and raffle items. Its important to monetize your fundraising comedy night. When you have that many people come to an event, have places for them to spend money. A silent auction can bring in lots of extra proceeds, and everyone loves a 50/50 draw and other raffles.

7. Decorate your event to make it have a personal touch. Let people know what you are fundraising for by showing them. Have a display on the way in with pictures. Decorate the stage with your colors, have fun with it :)

TIP: Don’t put balloons or other decorations between the sight line of the audience to the comedian. They will distract from the show and people will be always moving around trying to see past them.

8. Snacks. Its always great to have some snacks around, something even inexpensive like putting some chips on the tables. Its a nice touch and the audiences appreciate it.

9. Did we mention to hire the right comedian! Make sure to see video on the headline comedian, he is the most important part of the night. Make sure he has experience in performing at fundraisers.

10. Have a great time. Its important to have fun while you work this event, the people coming out to support will recognize this. Laughter is contagious, and you will see it spread. It takes effort to put on an event, plan it out correctly and everyone coming is coming to have fun. Let the power of comedy take effect! guide on How to Have a Fundraiser Comedy Night How to Have a Fundraiser Comedy Night for your cause

How To Have a Fundraiser Comedy Night

Are you the one selected to put on a fundraiser? It can be a daunting task but we’ll let you know some tips on how to have a fundraiser comedy night.How to have a fundraiser comedy night James Uloth

James Uloth has been a comedian since 2003, he has played over 3,000 shows in 4 different countries and has performed at and helped to produce 100’s of fundraisers. He’s the creator of Raise The Woof and Comedy For The Cure, they are 2 of the largest fundraiser comedy tours in the world.

How to have a fundraiser comedy night and make it a great success.

1. When will the event take place? Make sure it isn’t competition against another fundraiser you’re already having, space your big fundraisers out so you don’t tire out your supporters.  Do you have a venue picked out already? make sure to book it before someone else does!

Comedy is a great stand out event from other fundraising avenues that are going on in a community. In our experience there is almost always something else happening in an area, but stay away from directly competing with mega events that bring the whole community out i.e. the 11th annual Chili Cook Off. Most of those huge events are scheduled well in advance and at the same time of year, so don’t put yours on the same day!

How to have a fundraiser comedy night succesfully2. Do you know what kind of audience comes out to your events? Comedy is great for drawing in new supporters, everyone loves to laugh. But are you familiar with the regular people who support your events, and are they a little more conservative and stiff? Its ok if they are, just remember to get a comedian who will have appropriate content as not to offend them.

James Uloth can provide a show that is squeaky clean. Also if you want something a little more adult oriented he can do that as well. Let him know any content restrictions and he stays well within those limits.

3. Do you have people to help sell tickets? The way to make an event super successful is to have people actively selling tickets. There is always some people in your group who are more social butterflies and will sell more tickets. The more tickets you sell the more money comes in from not just tickets sales but other points of sale at your event.

4. Do you have a silent auction and raffles? When you get a large group of people out you can make a tremendous amount of extra funds from having silent auctions and raffles. Try and have something fun for raffles as well as a 50/50 draw. We have seen some pretty neat things, like a pooper scooper for bingo numbers in a  giant kitty litter box. Something neat not only gets people spending money, but will have people talking about how exciting and fun the event was.

5. Make sure to hire the right comedian. Not every comedian is created equal. Performing comedy at a fundraising event is completely different than being a comic performing at a local bar or comedy club. It takes years of experience to perfect it.

Make sure your comic has videos, reviews and a history of performing at fundraising events, James Uloth has all of this. His likability, professionalism, and all around fun funny show, keeps his calendar busy.

What you should know before hiring a comedian for a fundraiser

What you should know before you hiring a comedian for a fundraiser. There are a few key factors in deciding to hire the right comedian to play your fundraiser. You want to make sure the comic will entertain your event, not offend anyone, and make you look good for having such exciting entertainment.

  1. The first thing is to have an idea of what audience will be at the event. Is it going to be mostly older people, younger people, all ages, or a diverse age range of only adults? Sometimes organizers will have no clear idea of what demographic is going to come out to support, and thats ok.

The easiest thing to do is hire a comedian who has experience in working with all age ranges, and that’s what James Uloth brings to the table.

  1. Another key factor is what content do you want the comedian to stay away from. Do you not want any jokes about sex, no swearing or profanity? Or do you want a comedian who can play with some more edgy material but at the same time not go to far?

James can play anything from squeaky clean to content more suited for adults. Let him know the parameters and he’ll stay in them.

3. Do you have the right budget to hire a true professional? Sometimes the difference of just a few hundred dollars will get you the right comedian for the job. Would you hire the cheapest surgeon? Probably not because when you need something done right, you go with a competitive price not the cheapest.

James’s prices are competitive, he will not be the cheapest priced comedian you find, but you get an amazing comedian for a fair sum.

  1. Does the comedian have the experience to work a fundraiser? When you see a comedian at a comedy club or bar room, that is a completely different style of standup comedy. Working a fundraiser event takes practice to perfect and years of experience.

    James has been performing comedy since 2003, he has done 1000’s of shows and played 100’s of fundraiser comedy nights. He’s the creator of 2 of the largest fundraiser comedy tours in the world www.ComedyForTheCure.com and www.WoofRaise.com, both have raised over $1,000,000. What you should know before booking a comedian for a fundraiser
