I can’t believe that people are prepared to pay to play – I can’t even believe that people are prepared to play for nothing. With the exception of people like Pear Shaped and a few others who are trying to keep comedy professional, it’s a sad indictment that comedy at grassroots level has sunk to such depths that people – 99% of whom should never be allowed to perform in public anyway – should be prepared to pay to foist their inabilities especially on paying audiences. Also the emergence of sad little “entrepreneur” wide boys, who appear to think they can achieve some kind of status in the business by ripping off the equally deluded for peanuts.

Pay to play is wrong, wrong wrong and anyone found running such a club should be made to ride a donkey backwards through town and pelted with ordure (in other words, shite). :lol:

Resarecting an old topic I know but worth doing to remind acts, however desperate they may be for stage time that Pay to Play (i.e. acts buy a ticket or similar) is wrong and immoral.

Prospective acts should boycot such clubs (also "bringer gigs" where a condition of getting a spot is to bring an audience with them) so that this particular "business model" withers and dies. :!:
