The popularity of the casino comedy clubs in Las Vegas and Atlantic city is causing many other casinos to offer this fun entertainment option. The Casino Comedy club is a great complement to the over all feel of the venue. The comedy club can draw new customers to your casino and give a little break for your regular VIP patrons.
So how do you go about putting in a casino comedy club at your facility?
It is not difficult to prepare a banquet room or lounge for a comedy show but some things are required for a successful event. The room should hold 100 to 300 people with good seating and tables. You want the audience to be seated as close to each other as possible, laughter is contagious. A stage or riser is necessary to give the audience a good line of sight. Stage lighting is also required to get the full effect of the show and to help give the room a show biz feel. The number one thing required for a good comedy show is a good sound system. The greatest act in the world will fail if the audience can’t hear them.
The next thing you will need is to draw a crowd in the seats. Many comics claim to have large fallowing but most do not. The venue will have to draw a crowd because the acts will change each week. You must become known as the place for a great comedy show.
Provide a quality funny show with good acts and provide great service to improve your revenue. Watch the little details and the word of mouth will spread like wild fire.
If you have an ongoing relationship with a radio station this can be a great way to get the word out. Most stations love to be a part of such an event and the DJ will often MC the event giving them exposure at a great venue. You should also use in house posters, direct mail and e-mail. News paper adds are an option and you will definitely want to send out a press release. Some of the booking agents or acts have publicists to do this for you. Many casino comedy clubs will offer a discount admission to their VIP players which adds value to the VIP membership.
While stand up acts will do fine it is always good to have visual and verity acts to offer something different.
Most comedy club shows will last about 90 minutes but in a casino it should be 45 minuets to an hour. You want to offer the customer a break but you also want them back on the casino floor.
Loud talking is very distracting and can ruin the show. The comics will usually take care of any heckling but if someone won’t be quiet they should be asked to leave. Your patron paid to see a professional show not someone in the audience that want's attention.
This kind of event has proven successful for decades from the catskills to vadville and the comedy club boom of the 80's and 90's people seek out good comedy entertainment in good times and bad. We will be there with you to help every step of the way with service that is second to none. If you offer a good fun show and watch the small details your comedy night can provide substantial revenue for you, and offer your customer a welcome relief from the stress of every day life.
