About

About
Blizzard Comedy is the brainchild of Non-Binary comedian Jonny Collins. It is a retaliation to the aggressive, drunken atmospheres of many big comedy clubs that put off so many from seeing their favourite comedians live.
Our objectives are simple:
  • Provide a safe space for audiences
  • Give platforms for under-represented and marginalised communities to present their comedy
  • Being a genuine alternative to mainstream clubs
For more information about how we go about achieving this, please check out our website.


Why we rely on donations
We think that the best shows should be available to everyone and that the opportunity to enjoy a great comedy show on a night out shouldn’t be exclusively for the wealthy. For that reason, we ensure that we have a number of free concession tickets available at every show for those who can’t afford the usual entry fee.

We are grateful to everyone who can afford to the pay the entry fee, as well as anyone kind enough to support us either regularly via our Patreon page or via singular donations to our PayPal.

Our Patreon page is for anyone who wants to offer us ongoing support. This might be because you’re planning to come every month and it’s just easier, or if you’re a generous soul who likes knowing that they’re continually supporting the arts.

Either way, thank you.


What we do with the money
Firstly, we pay all of our acts. Comedy is a tough game and it’s the least we can do the people who make it worth you leaving the comfort of your own home.

We also need money to cover general admin costs. Things like having a nice website, a user-friendly ticketing service and other things that make our lives easier all cost money to get right. The better quality tools we have access to, the more time we can devote to putting on a great show.

Money can also ensure that our show is as accessible as possible. This ranges from keeping plenty of earplugs around for people who are sensitive to loud noises to hiring BSL interpreters so that people with hearing impairments can enjoy the show too. Earplugs cost money, interpreters who can stay out late on a school night cost even more money.

If after all this we have any money left over, we use it support local charities who do good in the community, whether that is through cultural initiatives like our own or making a direct impact on the lives of the less fortunate.
Goals
$111.80 of $426.87 per month
Each show costs about $320 per month to put on. Once we hit this target, we'll officially be breaking even after every show.
