School Of Laughs

In this episode we address the key components of a performer-based contract for shows you book outside of the comedy club. Specifically, we talk about how to draft a contract that has YOUR best interest in mind. 

We cover:

  • Refundable and non-refundable deposits,
  • Who pays for travel,
  • Cancellation policies,
  • Staging, lights and sound,
  • Event time line,
  • Performance time,,
  • Why you need multiple event contacts,

and much more.

Your stand-up comedy career is quite a journey. The School Of Laughs™ podcast, blogs and courses are designed to help you navigate the ups and downs. Visit for more info about online and live comedy classes.
