Lesley is taking the next 2 weeks off (except for this Friday when the Poitical Pundits will be in and I'll be gone) so I'm left to my own devices for show topics, blogs and Facebook postings.
Lets start here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Edmonton-Comedy-Festival-presented-by-ATB-Financial/171487302895114
Graham Neil and I have been working really hard to put together another great comedy festival for Edmonton and I'm excited to give you a sneak peek at some of the acts we have coming. Derek Edwards, Nicki Payne and Steve Patterson are all confirmed along with 26 other acts. The full line up will be announced June 6th and there'll be some big names in that announcement.
If you have a sports team or a charity that wants to raise some quick cash we're offering "Comedy for a Cause." We sell you a show at The Westin or 4 Points by Sheraton. Here's how it works: You pick a show on Friday at either venue and buy all the tickets (That's 150 at 4 Points or 130 at The Westin) and we'll discount them by 50%. You resell them through your organization for the face value and the profit is yours. That will raise $1625 to $1875 for your organization pretty painlessly. We need your commitment before June 6th when all the tickets go on sale to the general public. We provide the stage, the venue, the talent, the volunteers and everything else... you just have to sell the tickets. If you're a sports team, for example, with 25 players you get each set of parents to buy 6 tickets and... voila... you're sold out and you raised $1875. To make it happen just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll make it happen.
If you want to help us out by buying a block of tickets for any show including the Galas at The Citadel just drop me a line and I'll give you a deal on the tickets but these are NOT for re-sale.
I get a lot of emails asking if I do private functions. I do... and a lot of them. To hire me to come to you just visit my website at http://www.andrewgrose.com and hit the hire me button. My agent Nancy Beaven will take care of you from there.
