You may think that clean comedy events won’t attract big crowds. People nowadays seem to love the crass comedy numbers on TV a lot.
But at some point, people get tired of the same dirty routine they’ve seen a thousand times. You want something fresh, but familiar at the same time.
Here are a few reasons why clean acts are gathering wider crowds around the country:
1. Clean Comedy Events Feature a Wider Range of Subjects
There’s only so many ways you can tie in risqué topics with your daily life. If the whole act is out to shock people, you’ll run into a wall at some point.
There is such a thing as oversaturation. It’s not that some aren’t funny, but all of these shocking subjects have been overdone.
The stars at clean comedy events tell relatable stories with a humorous twist. That is, without going overboard.
Take Jeff Allen for example. He’s had a whole routine about the wacky thoughts of his 15-year-old son. Like how he would sift through the papers to buy a $30,000 pick-up truck for when he’d get his license – with the total of $9 he had in his room.
Stories like this are for everyone – grandparents, parents, and children alike. You can market your event in more than a few places this way. Take advantage of this fact.
In the end, it’s all about creating a funny and relatable experience for your audience. You’ll attract a public that wasn’t there before.
2. Clean Comedians Are Not Restricted to Comedy Clubs
Parents and grandparents don’t usually appreciate the “adult” nature of comedy clubs. The clubs could feature a lot of smoking and drinking, especially if they have a bar.
The elderly would much rather go into a less smoke-filled place. Somewhere cozy where they can laugh without feeling like they’re going to cough up a lung.
A club might even have a minimum consumption fee, which people will not appreciate.
Take advantage of the fact that clean comedians have a wider range of jokes, and choose a more inclusive venue for your event.
Places like coffee shops, diners, parks, and even bowling alleys can feature clean comedy events with no problem. The owners won’t fear the act will drive out customers.
Who knows, you may even gather new attendees if they see your poster outside your chosen venue.
3. Clean Comedy Brings People Together
Businesses and other organizations looking to create an event for everybody will concentrate on it being very work-safe. That guarantees that parents can bring a child or teen to the show without fearing for foul language.
That’s one way to bring more people to the venue. Another one is to consider the fragmented society of today, and what you can do about it.
Political ideals are especially divisive within communities nowadays, and humor serves as a bridge to bring people together.
It’s no use having political and religious jokes at a comedy event and risk alienating a part of the audience. Give your attendees something they can ALL laugh at!
