Laughter Is The Best Placebo 2017

Tour Info…

I could bore you with the press release but honestly, I don’t think people who are on this page are interested in that.

I am a 30-something comedian who is constantly looking for emotional and electrical outlets. If you can relate, this show is for you.
Something (I feel) you should know…
Something you should know about me is I’ve been performing stand-up comedy for 6 years. This show took me 2 years to write. I’ve done over 800 gigs all over the UK and I feel I know what I am doing (as best you can in this industry). However…
 
I do not have an agent. I don’t have a tour manager. I don’t have any PR. I am a completely independent comedian. As a result I’ve sorted this tour out myself. Which feels great to say / type but has it’s own set of issues. Largely, there’s only so much 1 man can do in a day. 
 
If you are able to help me promote any of the shows, please do. You can email me directly here – simon.m.caine@gmail.com or tweet me @thismademecool
 
I only mention this because I think it’s worth you knowing that the reason I am able to tour at such low ticket prices (or “free” in some places) is because I’ve kept the costs immensely low by doing it all myself. 
A word about “free” shows…
I love the ethos of doing a show for “free”. Doing something for the love of it is great, on paper. But sadly, everyone else in the world doesn’t go along with it and so I do need to earn money. Where possible I do my show and don’t charge entry. This allows you (yes YOU!) the chance to “give me a go” with little to no commitment and then at the end I ask you to “pay what you think it’s worth / you can afford”.The other problem this throws up is that I can drive for up to 3 hours to a venue and not have a clue how many people are going to come and watch me. This lifestyle / job is scary enough without having to have anxiety attacks that nobody will be coming to see you because you haven’t sold tickets upfront. Anyway, enough of my inner turmoil. To combat this I create free ticket links on EventBrite. By signing up for one of those it allows me to be calm about how many people are coming to watch me in a city. So if I am coming to your city and it’s a free show… PLEASE do me a solid and RSVP to the Facebook event (that helps me get a little bit more exposure which is invaluable, but we all know that RSVPing “attending” on Facebook doesn’t always mean we go). So also sign up for a free ticket on EventBrite. Thanks for the support. It really does mean the world.

Ride or Die.
