What is the mission of the Clean Comedy Circuit?
The Clean Comedy Circuit’s mission is to recruit and unite venues that are committed to providing high-quality, family-friendly, stand-up comedy events on a regular basis.
What is the Clean Comedy Circuit’s goal for churches?
The goal of the Circuit is to convert as many churches as possible into what we call, “Comedy Churches.” That’s just a phrase we use to denote that a particular church recognizes the benefit of a high-quality comedy event for its church body.
Is the Clean Comedy Circuit only for churches?
Absolutely not. However, churches are usually the best fit for a venue because churches are always looking for a way to host an event for the entire family to enjoy. But if you have a venue that is not a church that you are interested in getting on the Clean Comedy Circuit, by all means, contact us through the website.
What must we do to get our venue into The Clean Comedy Circuit?
The first step to becoming a Circuit Member Venue is to commit to doing at least two comedy shows a year. Preferably any given venue would commit to doing a quarterly show at the beginning, and work their way up to doing monthly shows, but to become a member a venue must commit to at least two shows a year. If your venue is interested in simply producing a one-off show, then becoming a member of the Clean Comedy Circuit might not be the best idea for your venue at the present time.
What Cities are the Clean Comedy Circuit currently in?
Currently the cities that sponsor and deliver Circuit shows are Columbia, SC, Nashville, TN, and Minneapolis, MN. We have development plans for other cities in Michigan and Pennsylvania with possibilities in Kentucky and Alabama. We are constantly looking to grow the Circuit so if you are interested please contact us via the website.
How do the venues pay the comedians?
Each individual venue member will be able to set up its own way of paying its performers. Ticketed events, love-offerings, budgeted monies, or combinations of all may be utilized. The principle stays the same, however. Stacking a run of shows together over one weekend means that churches that wouldn't normally be able to afford some of these comedians will get the privilege of hosting a comedy night for a big-time performer!
How do the venues find and book the comedians?
The Clean Comedy Circuit has a board of directors made up of select venue's pastors and also a few select comedians. This board of directors will insure the quality of the comedian both from a "funny" stand-point and from a "clean content" stand-point.
