ABOUT THE ORGANISERS: NEXTUP and COVID-19At NextUp, our mission is to amplify the power of comedy whilst supporting comedians and the wider comedy community in as many ways as possible.Since COVID-19, we've been flat out trying to support performers as best we can, initiatives include:
A Just Giving fundraising campaign to financially support comedians who need it most. At the time of writing it's raised over GBP 100,000.
A live-streaming service called NextUp Now that gives comedians a virtual live-streaming stage to perform and earn revenue from.
Doubling our commission payouts to any venue or comedian who promotes our video subscription service, helping them earn easy additional revenue.
Ticketed live gigs via Zoom (like this one) that present comedians a 'closed-door' comedy club-like scenario to practice their material and earn revenue from.
It's going to be a while before live comedy returns to its normal state but we're determined in the meantime to create a working model that benefits everyone and we'd like to thank you for your supporting this gig, and live comedy.
Tickets are limited so please don't wait to grab yours.
The virtual comedy gig takes place in a Zoom meeting so be sure you have that app on your computer or phone. Make sure your microphone input volume is set to 40% and you wear headphones so we can hear everyone and there's no feedback. We'd encourage you to turn your video on too but that's optional. Like a comedy gig, the focus is on the performer but it's nice to generate a bit of a virtual atmosphere, so the more of you we can see and hear, the better.
Also like an in-person comedy gig, you can be also be removed by the host if you decide to fly off the chain.
Please note: that by attending this gig - you consent to you image being used for promotional purposes.
Once you've bought a ticket, you will be emailed a unique Zoom link for you to login with. Only one person can use each Zoom link so please do not share your link or both people won't get in.
