For Comedy Club bookings
I have a huge fan base. I perform to all types of audiences. I
can go clean or dirty. I do many Corporate, cruise, college,
club and one night gigs. I pride myself on being able to perform
an audience made up of any group, all Black, Hispanic, White,
Gay, Old, Young and so on. I have sold out almost every show
(Paid ticketed shows and freebie ticket shows) this year and I
get standing ovations at 90% of all of my shows. I push drink
sales heavily from the stage, so they are much higher when I am
in a club and I also heavily promote! I try to add at least 1000
Myspace friends to every town I go to every time I am booked
there and I blast them over and over with info on the shows. I
also post multiple bulletins on the net like Craigslist,
Twitter, Facebook and more announcing my shows. Then when I get to town I go out every day and heavily
promote on the streets. Name one other headliner that does half
of that. Call my references to check these facts, I have many
is the deal, bring me in at the rate you pay headliners, if
while I'm there, I sell out shows, Get standing O's and your
drink sales go way up, then book me back for higher pay. If none
of that happens, never book me again.
I am a pro. In 25 year I have never missed a show not for
illness, the death of my brother or anything. I show up early
and leave late. I am honest and reliable. I have never had
trouble with any club or booker ever. I respect the club,
employees, bookers and lodging.
During my club shows, I do a 10 min. bit on performing for the
troops. I ask the audience to raise their hands and order a shot
to do with me at the end of the bit. The waitresses find all the
people with their hands up. I sell an extra 10-200 shots per
show. This makes drink sales go way up. Especially as the
headliner because by the time I hit the stage everyone has
already had their 2 drink min. Ex: Recently at the Loony Bin in
Oklahoma City I did 7 shows and did this shot trick. They sold
about 300 or more extra drinks. On Fridays first show the bar
ran out of all glasses. If shots are a minimum of $5 each then
the club made a minimum of an extra $1,500 because of me. That
is an average pay of a headliner in many comedy clubs. I do this
to make money for the club, but I also do it expecting to get a
faster rebooking and higher pay on my return.
I have a huge loyal fan base. I have been listed on many comedy
websites as one of the top 20 comedians in the country. Almost
every patron that comes up to me after the show says "You are
the best comedian I have ever seen in my life".
Dante, Rebekah Kochan and Ron Jeremy are also available as a tour called Ron Jeremy's XL Comedy Tour.
I am looking for headliner spots, I also love when I can
bring my own opener, it is my girlfriend.
