Hello,

Could someone on the Island possibly a venue owner or current entertainer on the Island tell me if the entertainment circuit is busy at the moment or acts are finding it tough to get seen?

What type of acts if any are venues looking for (I am not an agent) I'm a performer (Comedy)

Thank you in advance for any information

I know a little about the live music scene, but not an awful lot about comedy on the island.

For what it's worth, there's not too many comedy shows around - apart from the odd pub that might have a comedian/hypnotist one night a week (in PDC at least). Maybe some of the All-Inclusive hotels might be on the look-out, but the money here would probably be small enough.

Overall, the clientele on the island are middle-aged, middle-class, and are spending less in pubs and more in the supermarket. This a big generalisation, and there are some 18-30s and families during the summer, but for the harder off-peak months this would be the most common visitor.

Hi
Agree with PubSpy.......apart from a couple of comedy drag shows and a comedy hypnotist there is a shortage of comedians on the island.......people are always asking if there are any comic acts on but as most entertainment here consists of ´´one man and his guitar´´ or the odd group I think you could well find an appropriate niche......but .....you will not get rich doing it as many bars pay quite poor rates for ´´entertainment´´.......but get a following and that could soon change.....Good luck
