OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMEDIANS
HOW TO GET BOOKED AT FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB!
We are looking forward to working with you and getting to know your comedy better so we can find appropriate spots for you. As with any business, the better we know you and the more professional you are, the more opportunities you will have. We need to keep you on the top of our minds so we can book you for shows.
The three things we look for in comedians are
#1: Be Funny | #2: Be Professional | #3: Be Supportive of the club
Q: WHAT DOES PROFESSIONAL & SUPPORTIVE MEAN?
A: Treat our staff well. Tip our wait staff when they serve you. Treat other comedians with respect. Keep all doorways and walkways clear and watch out for staff and servers trying to serve your fans and guests. Don't bad mouth the club. If you have a complaint, tell our management. Don't hang out or bring friends into the Mainroom Greenroom unless you are performing as well, even then please be respectful of headliners. Don't be demanding or rude. Let us take care of the guests who are buying tickets first. Listen, pay attention, and learn our schedule. If you ARE booked on a show bring out at least one or two people to see you.
We always need comedians for last minute drop outs and fill-ins in both Claremont and Burbank rooms.
Here are a few ways that you can get regular bookings in our rooms:
1) Call in on Mondays: (818-845-9721) If you are available and interested in doing guests spots during the week, the best thing to do is make a quick call to our office and let us know you are available to do guests spots that week. We will put you on a list and as spots become available at any of our locations Burbank, Claremont or in the Yoo Hoo Room. We will pull from that list first when we are looking for fill ins.
2) Come to Auditions & Bar Shows: Come to auditions at 6pm on Wed & Thurs and do your best 3 minutes for us. The owner and or primary bookers of the club are always present to meet you and watch you at auditions.
3) Uncle Clyde's Contest: Enter and win Uncle Clyde's Comedy Contest. This is always a great sign of talent. The winners of our contest have obtained management, and often get booked for lots of different types of events, both at our club and off-site for Corporate, Clubs, Casinos Cruise Ships and many other events. They also win a paid Mainroom feature spot sometime in the year.
4) Take Classes: We believe in creating a community of comedians that support and help instigate one another to do better comedy. If you are an active student in our classes, not only will you have the opportunity to perform in Class Showcases but there will be comedians who you work with who are also producing shows here that may want to book you in their shows. EMAIL: Classes@FlappersComedy.com
5) Produce your Own Show: Ask about how you can produce you own show. By producing successful comedy show complete with talented comedians and a lot of happy audience members attending you will gain the attention of the bookers and owners of the club. Also make a few bucks for yourself!
6) Hang Around: Come on down to see shows. If there are seats available we always try to offer comedians a seat at no charge. We do ask that you observe the two item minimum in lieu of the cover charge. We apologize that on Special Events, there may not be seats, but we will do our best to accommodate you. You never know. We have pulled comedians hanging around the club onstage to fill in for Emcees, and Features -Even Headliners just because they were standing there and available to go onstage.
7) Please keep your talent profile updated on www.FlappersComedy.com. On the Calendar page you block out dates that you are NOT available to work then if we request you for that date we will be notified. ___________________________________________________________________
