NOT JUST STRETCH GOALS: DREAMS!

Thank you so so much to everyone who has supported us so far. Now we can dare to dream!

These are our stretch goals. But more than that, they represent what we're trying to achieve with Angel Comedy.

The full details (and some hectic GIFs) are in update #5 (or just click on the graphic below).

 We are building a permanent home for Angel Comedy that is affordable, supportive and welcoming to audiences and comedians alike.

Angel Comedy has grown from a once-a-week gig into a seven nights-a-week “Comedy Institution” (according to Timeout). We have 1000 people through our doors every week. We support new talent and host big name acts.

And we’ve done all this in a single room above a pub.

The Angel queue, yesterday. Help give these people a permanent home.
The Angel queue, yesterday. Help give these people a permanent home.

Six years in, and we’re running out of space, plus, if the landlords want their room back, we’re out of a venue. We also have dreams, BIG DREAMS, that need more space than a borrowed pub function room.

So, like many six year olds with BIG DREAMS, we’ve gone and bought the lease on a pub.

I know, right? But, it’s okay. In fact, it’s brilliant. We’ve been lucky enough to find a place right around the corner from where we started. It’s an old Victorian pub, and the outgoing landlord chose us over a gastropub, which is certain to please the local Islington residents. 

Wow, you really have bought a pub. So, tell me about these BIG DREAMS

Our ambition for the Angel Comedy Club is to build something more than just a venue for comedy nights. A permanent home means we can create something special for audiences, comedians and our local community.

  • A fully kitted out performance space, with minimal/free hire costs
  • A great place for comedians to work; desk space and access to a podcast studio with minimal/free hire costs
  • A training room for running courses and writers rooms 
  • A friendly space, where audiences and performers feel comfortable, valued and supported
  • After-school stand up classes for kids; in a borough that suffers over 37% child poverty, we will offer free places
  • Working with Silver Comedy to offer stand-up classes for older people in our space, as well as in care homes 

And it won’t stop there. We have so many more ideas, as has everyone who has seen the venue. We want to bring as many of those ideas to life as we can.

But first, we need to make it into a fully functioning, comfortable and professional venue. And that's where you come in…

In return for your support, we're offering some GLORIOUS REWARDS.

Is it true I can name anything in the club?

Yes. As a backer you can have an engraved plaque, with your name, dedication, or anything you want* on pretty much anything in the pub: 

Name the chairs, the beer pumps, light switches, urinals, the fire exit, the stage, and more…
Name the chairs, the beer pumps, light switches, urinals, the fire exit, the stage, and more…

So, like a Pharaoh, your name and/or sarcastic message will live on in the very fabric of the building, for eternity. You can lord it over non-donating audience members screaming “Look upon my works ye mighty, and despair”

There’ll also be exclusive t-shirts and hoodies, personalised tankards, VIP comedy nights and the official Angel Naming Day Party.

An artisan carpenter skilfully prepares the bar, ready for you to name.

*We reserve the right to refuse obscene or offensive dedications. But if you can’t hold back, and it is hard sometimes, check out our “post-watershed” rewards. 

I want to name something, and get a t-shirt

With these tempting add-ons, you can. Just make your pledge, choose your reward, and then go to "Manage Pledges" and increase your pledge amount to include the value of the add-on you want.

Our add-ons are:

Includes Angel Comedy badge + zine + tote bag + t-shirt + delivery
Includes Angel Comedy badge + zine + tote bag + t-shirt + delivery

 

Includes Angel Comedy badge + zine + tote bag + hoodie + delivery
Includes Angel Comedy badge + zine + tote bag + hoodie + delivery

Get (almost) anything else

If there's any other combo you'd like, just choose your reward and add the value of the additional item(s) as described above (including shipping if you're not in the UK).

The only restriction is that limited rewards (like naming things) cannot be added on. They can only be selected using the button in the rewards section (otherwise we can't count them).

For example, to name a chair and get a t-shirt: 

Select YOU NAME IT: A CHAIR for £50. Then add the value of a T-SHIRT, £23. Total pledge, £73.

If there's a combo you'd like, but can't see here, let us know and we should be able to sort you out.

I’m just about to give you 20K. Where will my money go?

The place needs a lot of work, and we’re already nostrils deep in renovations. But our limited budget will only take us so far.

We’ve covered the basics. We’ve stripped, cleaned and made the place habitable. We’ve built a stage out of pallets. We’ve lavished a lot of love on the bar, which is almost ready for action. And we’ve had the thumbs up from the council fire inspector.

Your 20k will be essential for transforming the old place from functioning shell into a beautiful performance and teaching space, and of course, bar. To do that we need to:

Fix the leaking roof; sort out the plumbing; install professional stage lighting and sound; build a proper stage and sound proof the performance space; buy and install flooring throughout the club; buy chairs (the room seats up to 150 people); get decent aircon to keep audiences cool on hot nights; fix up the outside space for the smokers and sunseekers; make the toilets gender neutral; make the cellar less terrifying; get proper signage outside the venue, so people can actually find us.

A team of experts is working around the clock. We should probably move the clock.

There’s a lot to do. When are you opening?

We’re aiming for a grand opening in September 2016. In the meantime, we’re hoping to run the club as a work in progress, a beta version, to learn as we go. As a backer, you’ll hear about secret gigs and get to see how things are getting on.

So why Kickstarter? 

Angel Comedy has always been free and survives on donations from its amazing audience, so crowdfunding the development of the club makes perfect sense. Plus, we don’t have much money.

Wait! What? FREE? How the jeffing fudge does that work? 

The Angel Comedy business model is this: Free.

Free to get in, and then, if you enjoyed the show, you're welcome to make a donation on the way out.

As a business model, it shouldn’t work. But it does. And thanks to our audiences, Angel Comedy is a success story. A success story based on honesty, respect and a love of comedy.

But this is capitalist Britain! Are you Reds? 

Maybe. But, really we just wanted to create a comedy night that people value, both acts and audiences. 

As performers we often played at badly run gigs to paying audiences. Price does not equal quality. And while promoters favour big ticket acts and big ticket prices, there are less and less good gigs for new acts. 

We knew there was another, albeit less conventional, way. 

Free means more accessible. If you want to see great new comedy, Edinburgh previews or established acts, you can, regardless of what you can afford. We think this is important. 

The popularity of Angel Comedy allows us to book 80% new acts, giving valuable stage time to new comedians, many of whom have gone on to have their first paid gigs on our stage. 

Like we said, as a business model, it shouldn’t work. But it does.

Do you pay your acts? 

Yes. We always have. But we want to pay them more. Improving this is part of our plan for the new venue, where we want performers to get the majority...if not all...of any ticket or bucket money collected.

Who is behind all this? I WANT NAMES! And maybe pictures. 

Barry Ferns is an award winning comedian, writer, director and idiot. He is one of the founders of Angel Comedy, and has won the Malcolm Hardee Award, The Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award, and been nominated for best MC at the Chortle Awards. 

He's been described as "A surreal Genius" by the Metro, the Times have said "expect Big things", The Guardian "So funny someone should call a paramedic", "The Scotsman "Bold original and Fresh and deliciously funny too" Arthur Smith "A total joy on stage and off". And for 7 years was called Lionel Richie.

Sarah Pearce has previously managed a theatre company and a circus, and was one of the comedians who helped set up Angel Comedy. As well as running an award winning comedy club, she is also training to be a psychotherapist.

Dec Munro has a background in running and MC’ing club nights (Test Tube Comedy). He also sits on the Participant’s Council of the Edinburgh Fringe Society. He mostly recently directed and co-produced "Bubblewrap" by Sofie Hagen which won the 2015 Foster's Prize for Best Newcomer.

Rachel Warnes knows how pubs work. Not only is she an experienced pub manager, she's also been the landlady at the original Angel Comedy venue since the club started, so she knows how Angel Comedy works too.

Risks and challenges

We already have a licensed venue, and after the initial works are completed it will be functioning and legal. So this is going to happen.

We also have a great team, with the core skills needed to make this work: promotion, curation, pub management and running a successful comedy club.

So, the risk is we build it, and you don't come. But you will, won't you?
