This excellent photo of me holding a baby lion was taken by the amazing Kelly Davidson-Savage. But it’s really not related to this post. Anyway…
Instead of renaming our festival something sad, like the Exxon Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival for $1,000,000, we’re offering a chance for people and companies to sponsor specific, fun/ odd things at our festival. You can also just buy a 1/2 page or full page ad in our festival program. If you’re interested in these, please email Julie Smith-Clem at juliesmithclem (at) gmail.com. She’ll also get you our full list of sponsorship stuff.
We’d like to thank some of our awesome sponsors so far, including, Newbury Comics, Otto Pizza and Cuntwarbler Whiskey! Thank you very much, wonderful companies!
HERE IS AN AWESOME, PARTIAL LIST OF THINGS YOU CAN SPONSOR OR BUY
$100 – Special thanks in our festival program under the heading “barely charitable organizations.”
$250 – 1/2 page ad in our program.
$450 – Full page ad in our program.
$250 – Eugene Mirman will make a 1-2 minute phone call on your behalf. Got good news for someone? Are you recently engaged? Got a promotion? New home? Let Eugene be the one to call your mom – or anyone you want to share the good news with…he’ll be very complimentary towards your achievement.
$500 – Your logo can 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).
$750 – Notebook of Advice! Eugene and some of the comics will write life advice in crayon inside a wide-ruled spiral notebook for you to keep.
$1000 – Official Sponsor of the “Throw a Water Balloon at a Slam Poet” booth outside of a venue before one of the shows.
$1250 – King or Queen of the Festival – You will get two seats in the front row to every show. Eugene will also make you two crowns. You will be royalty throughout the festival, sort-of…
$1500 – Judgmental Parent – You will be the sponsor of the Official Judgmental Parent who will sit by the merch table and anyone can come up to, talk to them, and experience a brief potentially spirit-crushing conversation in which they are told what they’re doing wrong with their life.
$2000 — Advice from a Priest, Rabbi & Nicolas Cage Impersonator. You can make this happen! We will set up an advice table at a show and give the gift of their combined advice to everyone that attends and seeks their help. You will be the official sponsor of our Priest, Rabbi & Nicolas Cage Impersonator and everyone will know that it was your company’s generosity that made it possible.
$2500 – Official sponsor of our “Play Connect Four with a Dermatologist” table.
$5000 Official Sponsor of our AWKWARD DUCK BOAT RIDE! Featuring businessmen, a variety of religious music, unusual food and, if we’re lucky, a former cast member from a bad reality TV show.
