Caustic Comedy Events aspires to produce stellar International English speaking stand-up comedy show nights.
Caustic Comedy is open to supply show-productions towards corporate groups and companies, public commertial and local television, online radio stations as for festivals, theatres, nightclubs, grand cafes, comedy clubs and various other venue and studio rooms.
For these Caustic Comedy Nights, I will always try to book club-acts that have not played nationally, are not passing through, and are a non-resident. Thus I and we will only try to offer ‘unique’ professional comedy show-programmings with bonafide comedians, preferably with out of this world life-stories or with unique characteristics and or outstanding (background-)storylines that could or should describe this project, jus nìcely.
As part of the provided service towards our clients, we will first discuss their needs by phone and send the summarized confirmation-mail after. We’ll then inspect and examine the proposed showroom in a standard expectancy appointment. To then in consultation provide a custom-made expectancy expenditure with earnings model for your soon to be jovial till frolic evening-filled live stand-up comedy show-program.
Seeing a live stand-up comedy night is a wonderful opportunity for making new friends, as for enjoying ace comedians perform their quick-witted well-crafted cutting edge jolly good comedy night with an occasional socially critical undertone, but within its own humour form.
The stage art itself is mostly a jocular experience in front of a live audience where the performer uses little more than a microphone, comedic spoken word and his or her (humorous) stagecraft to provoke laughter and make us see the funny side of life. Live stand-up comedy is characterized by punchlines, storylines, mimicry, satire, sarcasm, observational comedy, anecdotes and/or a series of one-liner jokes.
The first International Stand-up Comedians appeared in the Netherlands via the UK in the mid-’80s and later on from the US. This subgenre of the artform Stand-up Comedy plays an ever growing part in the global entertainments industry where the current focal point seems to lay on the international comedy(night-)club circuit.
In 2019 Caustic is celebrating its ninth event season right after our very first UK mini-festival 2018 tour along Leicester, Brighton (seaside) and the Scottish Edinburgh. And we’re now heading for our very first decade in EU/UK comedy. At Caustic Comedy, we will try to uphold our promise to build up and deliver seasonal-based performances. Our aim is to bring the international (Caustic) Stand-up Comedy subgenre to a broader audience, in cooperation with many different organizations, co-promoters and venues that contribute to this cause.
Caustic Comedy Nights will relaunch hopefully in January from an all-new venue midst of the cultural heart of Utrecht, Holland/The Netherlands, with every other month shows, on the last Thursday of that same month.
We’ll also at one point be able to set up an international Stand-up comedy, improvisation and writing workshop for new and established comedians by our professional all-around London based comedy coach, Logan Murray(UK), who is a reference point in the UK and international TV comedy circuit.
Caustic Comedy Cultivation Project
Established in May of 2011, Caustic Comedy is an independent production company that promotes and produces exclusive themed concept and live stand-up comedy showcase events. We get to work with reputable comedians and colleague agencies who represent first-class performers in the field featuring top names of the international comedy circuit.
Works on an unremunerated basis as an auspicious army of but one, soon to be a legal person. with the noteworthy support of some graphic designers for our poster and online designs, together with (textile-)printing & distribution companies, and with the occasional local co-promoter. We also get to work with and facilitate interaction between reviewers, PR’s, publicists, editors, journalists. We also work with theatre and festival programmers, all in effort to guarantee the production processes of the stand-up comedy show productions themselves.
I work closely with a sound engineer and light technician if not doing the tech myself and will always bring the the comedic cutlery (mics, cables, micstand). Depending on the location we sometimes can work as part of a fixed support team together with cameraman/editor. We always try to ensure that each event has an appropriate press release and also audio and video clips for further exposure. And depending on the offered budget we then offer a wide PR package via press, (internet-)radio, TV, and social media.
Caustic Comedy Events is partially run by volunteers. The organisation itself does not receive a or any reward privately nor professionally for their duties as a crew nor its future (board)member(s) and associates. Costs incurred will be reimbursed. Artists and partners receive payments on the basis of bargaining or on the basis of receipts or partage(s) and/or out of direct ticket sales. In advance, this is determined and also determines who is at risk of insufficient public interests, and thus this project does not aim for profits and is on a basic expense basis. Earnings are reinvested and have been standardized from its first season onwards.
