We are a small independant comedy promotions company. We have been running for 4 years (the last 3 years with no funding) and are looking to expand and take more shows to this years Liverpool Comedy Festival. We have also in the past worked with LJMU, LIPA & MerseyCare Recovery College doing confidence through comedy & stand up comedy specialist workshops. With the view to doing more in the near future, these funds would be used as a kickstarter for branding, publicity and our own equipment as we have spent the better part of our 4 years borrowing sound systems, lighting and making our own flyers.
Here is a testimonial from one of our students:
" It's fun and interactive but affects people on a deeper level. Performing stand up comedy to an audience? That's something most people never do! And something they never believe they can do even if they've never been affected by mental health issues, anxiety, low confidence or low self-esteem! We struggled to believe we would end up on stage. Then we had 6 weeks with Kiefer (BottleTop Comedy founder); teaching us how to develop material, work the mic, act confident, etc. The showcase is all to family, friends and people from the college. Everyone was so supportive when i did it. My showcase went brilliantly and I loved the course. I even carried on doing comedy after completing it. "
