We’re very excited for our festival this year — full of amazing performers, including: Kristen Schaal, John Hodgman, Nick Thune, Wyatt Cenac, Chelsea Peretti, Daniel Kitson, Bridget Everett, Jon Benjamin, Janelle James, a special Star Talk Live guest hosted by Bill Nye the Science Guy, Mehran Kheghani, Ken Reid and more!
We have lots of weird, fun sponsorship opportunities for companies (or individuals). A recent study, conducted by me this morning while day-dreaming, suggests that our festival is the number one way to reach 18 – 49-year-olds with disposable annual incomes of $60,000,000 per household! How do you convince a 20-year-old engineering student to buy YOUR company’s helicopter or iPhone App? By becoming a sponsor of the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival.
Are you a wonderful company or person? Then maybe you’d like to chose an item from our oddball sponsorship menu — which ranges from “quite affordable” to “pleasantly expensive.” Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested and she can provide you with our full rate card with all our sponsorship options. For now, here’s a few:
$100 – Special thanks in our festival program under the heading “barely charitable organizations.”
$500 – Your logo will appear on LOGO JOHNNY (a guy that will walk around with logos on him – 15 sponsors max – at a minimum of 1 show, more shows if we get enough sponsors).
$1,000 (includes 2 VIP tickets to one show) — Before a show of your choice, two MIMES will casually mime your company’s mission statement to audience as they arrive.
$2,500 (includes 4 VIP tickets to one show) — We will prominently display items with your logo in a big trash can.
$2,500 (includes 4 VIP tickets to one show) — Eugene will talk about your company for 30 seconds at the beginning of one of our shows — he can say anything he wants!
$10,000 (includes 2 VIP tickets to every show or 8 VIP tickets to any one show) — Official Sponsor of our VERY SPECIAL AFTER PARTY.
$10,000 (includes 2 VIP tickets to every show or 8 VIP tickets to any one show) — A banner that says “X Company paid $10,000 for you to see this crappy banner we bought for $340.”
We also offer $250 half-page ads in our program and $450 full-page ads in our program, along with several other sponsorship options. So far, our sponsors include one of my beloved childhood record stores — Newbury Comics, the delicious Otto Pizza and famous Cuntwarbler Whiskey. Will you join the ranks of these esteemed companies?
