Stand up for Labour offers a morale boosting night out for Labour Party supporters.
It combines the best in comedy with inspiring speeches from leading party figures and trade unionists, and is an opportunity for local activists to rally together and raise funds in the process.
What we can offer
Tickets are not expensive. We aim to raise funds but we prefer to do so with a big crowd. The main aim is to gather as many Labour supporters as possible to ensure an enjoyable evening. A concessionary rate is offered and carers get in free.
The aim is to get rid of the Tory-led coalition, to engage more with local Labour supporters and to help comedians perform to a cultured, informed audience.
Promoting the party
Part of Stand up for Labour's policy is to promote the event as much as possible to get the party name out on posters in shop windows and on local websites. Publicity is written following Labour Party design and it gives the party a visual presence outside election campaigns.
If you are interested in holding a Stand up for Labour event, we can supply the comedians, the promotional material and technical operator. We will consult you on which political or guest speakers you would like and on the suitability of venues.
Pushing for ticket sales
In order to ensure that the local Labour Party group will make as much effort in ensuring the event is a success, we are now asking for a small fee before we will confirm a booking. To be successful, an event needs CLPs/groups to promote the event among members through a number of emails and also puts up posters and hands out flyers.
Stand up for Labour is here to help CLPs with any advice on what can be done to attract more people and we also work hard on social networks and through our own contacts to get the word out about the event. Other than this fee there is no charge to the CLP or group and, after expenses are covered, all the profits from the event go to them.
If you are a comedian and you would like to be considered for a spot, we are happy to give you stage time as long as you have passed the Eddie Izzard test of a comedian (100 gigs).
