Heroes Manifesto 2017
As reigning ‘Spirit of the Fringe’, we at Heroes have decided that its time for us to take over the Fringe… Up the Revolution!
Our guerilla tactics, innovative model and word of mouth success has seen us add a venue every year since we started five years ago.
In 2017 we are very proud to add the new Monkey Barrel Comedy Club to the Heroes growing family. (including The Hive, Dragonfly, BlundaBus and maybe the Garden Shed will be back?) This will give us two more purpose built comedy rooms centrally located on Blair St and taking us from 44 shows last year to 66 next August…
With over £70,000 worth of ticket sales last Fringe we continue, year on year to double the ££ we make for acts. If we were to carry on at this rate (and why not eh?) In another 5 years we will sell 2.2 million tickets. Which is EVERY SINGLE TICKET AT THE FRINGE!!
The only way the ‘current’ Big Four venues and the rest of the commercialised Fringe Industry can prevent us taking over the Fringe is a Bay of Pigs style counter invasion… OR they could simply decide to stop putting artists in debt?
We are more than happy to have a chat and let the other venues know how we do it. Afterall I became a promoter by accident and all I really want to be is a bus driver.
In the meantime we are currently taking interest for next Fringe. Any shows that want to sell tickets and keep 90% of the income with no hidden cost can drop us a line.
