Comedians, Cheap Beer and SILENT RUNNING!!

Upcoming events. If you don't know how to post here, ask a mod. They probably won't know either, which is why this whole thing is a total mess and I don't know why I still try, I really don't.

Comedians, Cheap Beer and SILENT RUNNING!!

Post by Rebel Pope » October 27, 2006, 1:27 pm

Capuan.com is hosting a party at Tony's on Hans Schoeman in Randburg with some great comedians (Al Prodgers, Malcolm Ferreira and Alyn Adams among them) and most importantly Silent Running.
The whole wonderful event only costs R30 at the door and if you are really dedicated you'll make that back on the cheap drinks.
It takes place on Saturday 25th of November and doors open at 8pm.
No excuses you must all be there!!

i don't think recovering the costs of paying for all the entertainment and the venue counts as exploitation, chris. :shrug:

I'll entertain myself at home for free then. Thought you would have a party that attracts people to the magazine comedians and band but obviously i am wrong. If i was organising something like this my friends would come for free and the public could pay or the whole thing could be free but whatever i don't care. won't post here anymore.

i agree with ceek and matt.

warren: is it financially viable to have a guest list for friends thing?

if the event is run at a loss because of this then matt's argument holds water, if the costs can be recouped in other ways then i agree with chris. I don't think it's at all fair for us to expect warren to subsidise his friends.

15 friends = R450 bucks...

I don't think it is a sound plan to organize something which requires your friends to pay in order to break even. Anyways i am the dick again so whatever.

well i agree with you dude ...

it is a kak one making a profit out of your friends too, so if warren is doing that then he's the bastard.

i don't think there needs to be a bastard though.

well, that if we ask him not to charge we won't get paid? and neither will any other entertainment? i.e. no reason for party?

or am i missing something here? :shrug:

i suppose not, although if the majority of people coming are friends then no one will pay and we're left without any cash again.

i guess the comparison is that if i had a party and bought R1000 worth of beer, and you guys came over, i'd expect y'all to chip in, you know?

Look guys this party is being advertised in the main media and through thousands of pamphlets. Come, or don't, either way I couldn't give a shit cause at 150 people the venue will be packed, and it will be a pretty amazing party, either way. I just thought you guys might like to support your friends' band. If this thing works out then these gigs will become a regular occurence and therefore regular work for Silent Running. Yeah incredibly bastardly of me.

The problem is at 150 people we need to charge everyone or we won't come close to covering costs. As it is we are only planning on breaking even. The amount we are charging is negligible when you consider that on Sunday at cool runnings you pay the same just for the comedy. Chris i think it's time you started getting out more and seeing just what you pay to get into a show these days.

Just as an addendum. Don't sms me to tell me there is a cool party and make me think it is an intimate private friends thing when it is a party thing and specify that it is a pay party from the beginning. Then i won't get confused. Good luck with the event.
