Shaft of Wit have over 16 years of experience performing, promoting and producing live comedy. In that time we have worked with hundreds of brilliant comedians and booked many acts early in their career who are now filling arenas! We bring some of the best professional stand up comedians on the UK comedy circuit, along with rising stars of tomorrow. Booking acts directly saves agent fees and the VAT they add on top. This makes it possible for Shaft Of Wit to book the best headline comedians from the biggest comedy clubs to entertain rural communities in their local.
A comedy night is no fun without an audience. The most successful nights take place in venues with a good number of regulars who support events. Venues with good support within their community usually sell out the first time comedy comes to play. Venue management and their teams play an important role in promoting comedy nights within the venue and wider community. A successful comedy night is a revenue boosting night that creates a huge buzz within a community, all centred around the venue. We love sharing in the success of good comedy nights and enjoy bring people together to laugh.
@shaftofwitcomedy is active on social media, promoting all our events. As part of our commitment to helping communities access great live comedy, We introduce Shaft Of Wit though community groups online and support the venue wherever possible. This activity builds trust and keeps the momentum going if regular events are planned.
Trying to run a box office for multiple events can be difficult. Shaft Of Wit's takes care of all ticket sales via it's own secure box office system on the Shaft Of Wit website. Tickets are issued as contactless e-tickets that the audience present for scanning using their phone. Because we have full control over every booking, we can issue refunds if requested or if an event is cancelled. All tickets must be purchased in advance, allowing venues to set up, staff and prepare.
Stage & Backdrops
If required, we provide a mini stage along with lightweight drapes and Shaft Of Wit artwork. Our set up looks neat and get the audience in the right mood for a great evening of live comedy.
