INFORMATION FOR ACTS PERFORMING AT OUR SHOWS
Firstly, thank you for performing with us. We appreciate you, and we enjoy putting on exciting, diverse and dynamic line ups for our comedy audiences.
The day to day business is run by both of us, us being Ross and Rhuiradh, if you need to contact us, email us or message one of the social media pages for the company - ScotsBestComics, GoodEgg, or BlueLampComedy.
Your timings, venue address, and payment details (if a paid spot) were in the email we sent you. If you do not have that, drop us a line at email@example.com - try and not DM us on personal pages as they will be missed/ignored probably!
If you are in the early stages, or doing a progression/trial spot for us, please note our booking ethos is smash 1 or more of these spots, and then we will get you paid work - we have done it loads recently.
We tend to work on this basis with occassional exceptions:

GOOD EGG EDINBURGH GIGS ARE BOOKED BY INVITATION, TENDS TO BE ONLY THOSE IN EDINBURGH, LOOKING FOR NEW MATERIAL. WE NEVER BOOK UNSEEN, WE NEVER BOOK AFTER RECEIVING EMAILS - WE JUST DONT HAVE THE TIME, SORRY. REPLACEMENT COMPERE, ON THE ROAD GIGS, AND FESTIVAL COMPILATION SHOWS ALL BY INVITATION ALSO.
We don't have a formal code of conduct for our gigs, like other larger clubs, but we expect acts to be respectful of the other acts, staff etc. Please raise any issues with us if you feel this is not being adhered to by others at the show that we have put there - acts, door staff, tech, admin staff.
As part of accepting these gigs, we will ask you to share/repost/retweet anything you are tagged in. Its not mandatory, but very helpful, especially if you have a sizable online following.
If you have a preferred current headshot/action photo for us to use in marketing the show(s), please do email us firstname.lastname@example.org otherwise we will just use what we can find online.
If you have to cancel your performance, please give as much notice as possible to allow us to find a suitable replacement. This is especially important if you are the headline act, as we tend to market our shows with a marquee name, which we have found is a driver for ticket sales.
