Do you wish there was an easier way to promote your team and reap the benefits of performing on a world-class stage?
One of the best ways to be taken seriously as a performer in Hollywood is to treat your craft like a business. You also know that putting your work out into the world and becoming someone who gets recognized is a great way to network.
Now there’s an easy way to do all of that at once – plus, you can even make money while you do it!
Simply showcase your team at the iO West Main Stage to help make your name (and your team’s name) the one that everyone’s talking about. Some of the biggest names in comedy today started at iO, including Tina Fey, Vince Vaughn, Amy Poehler and Mike Myers, just to name a few.
One of the best things about showcasing on the iO West Main Stage is that it’s easier than you might think to bring in some real dollars for your team. Think you might find a way to use some extra cash? Most local improv theaters simply take all the earnings from the box office, or don’t allow showcases on their main stage.
If you’re looking into doing a showcase for your team, then you likely run your team like a business – just like we do our theater. We want great acts to be able to show off what they do, bring people into the theater, and put on a show that’s mutually beneficial. That’s why we structure our Main Stage rentals the way we do – we want to make it as easy as possible for you and your team to have a great experience, make money, and reap all the benefits a showcase can offer you while still allowing us to keep the lights on.
For a half-hour showcase slot, you take 85% of the house earnings after the first $200 in tickets are claimed. That’s just 20 people at $10 per ticket!
For an hour showcase slot, you take 85% of the house earnings after the first $400 tickets are claimed. Again, that’s just 40 people for an hour-long show at $10 per ticket… after that, you take home 85% of the cash!
What’s more industry members are always comped.
