Instant laughs Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
Providing fun, entertaining evenings of stand up comedy that provide a special experience, which you will not get other stand up comedy clubs at affordable prices.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I created Instant laughs, because most open mic comedy nights are located in North London, there is not a clear progression structure and most do not provide a real audience. It is a disservice to acts, as it makes it difficult to judge a performance. Furthermore, people are missing out on the freshest stand up comedy, because of where they live. I am looking to provide a solution to this problem.
Why should our clients choose you?
I have over two years of experience in stand up comedy, have gigged across the UK, know many comedians from the very top, to the very bottom of the stand up comedy ladder, been to lots of comedy nights. Consequently, I have friendships with many of the best comedians in the UK, can bring affordable high quality comedy entertainment, because I do not have to go through comedy agencies to book the best comedians.
CEO and director
From January 2015.
Booking the acts and managing the running order of each night I manage the bookings of who hosts, headlines and performs on the night. I make sure I pick a line up with a good mix of acts, to provide a great show. I have built up a friendship with many of the top acts on the circuit and I am able to recruit them for a reduced fee, because of it. Promoting and advertising the night The success of the comedy night is focussed on putting on a good show and bringing in a large crowd. Consequently, a substantial amount of effort goes into advertising on online platforms such as: Time out, Twitter, Facebook and the local Guardian. Furthermore, I also employ large amounts of street marketing, as a result of the marketing methods employed, we have gained a regular audience of thirty plus. Doing the filming and photography of nights I manage a team of photographers and film-makers for the nights, which provides photographs and filming for the acts at an optional £5, it helps them analyse and improve their performance. It was a challenge to bring the best out of the team. However, by providing the right incentives, learning the moments to be firm and lenient, play an integral role in the success of the comedy nights.
From December 2014 to January 2015.
Answering queries for current and new customers I dealt with a wide range of queries from current and potential customers, these would often include: installation and maintenance of products and security systems, joining us, arranging appointments, finding out the types of security systems they needed. In most instances, I would need to take down the customers contact details and what their requirments were, then put them through to the right person and department. If they wished to speak with an individual at the office, I would consult the individual first, then send them over the details. A certain level of detail and listening skills, were required in ensuring the details were accurate, whils speaking in a clear, polite and courteous phone manner to them. Getting quotes for products Had to do research into the components used in CCTV, Fire alarm and Intruder alarm systems and the suppliers that provided them. Then I would have to consult the suppliers of those products, to find the best price possible for our requirements. Build the design for security components of fire and intruder alarm system Provide the schematics for the components of Fire alarm and Intruder alarm systems, I had consider where the components needed to be placed, what components were needed and how they would engage with one another. I had to take into consideration where a burglar would break into the building, what places a fire and smoke are most likely to appear.
From May 2013 to May 2014.
