Gong Show ~ entry going up
« on: August 22, 2006, 09:41:07 pm »

I'm increasing the entry to £2.50 for everyone. We've never been paid by any sponsor (apart from one at the beginning) and The Dickens can't carry the cost any longer.

We have the £100 prize and MC/support act to pay for, nothing I can do. It's a price increase or it folds but your opinions are welcome.

N.B. Comedy Store Gong costs a fiver to get in.

How about running the price increase in tandem with giving folk a free badge?

Fair's fair I reckon. I dont pay to get in anyway but I would happily do so if it meant the night continuing.

i'd say that's fine. Also makes the free entry draw actually worth it  :)

The free draw they do on the gong show is usually for the funny magnet just afterwards

Im not fussed about paying that, its definately worth it

THIEVING BASTARD!!

It's about time people knew the truth about how Peter Vincent runs these nights:

He is given £3000 up front from The Dickens Inn to run the show
He takes over £9000 on the door and keeps a hundred percent cut
He brings in over £3000 each show from various sponsorship deals and protection rackets
He takes a 90% cut of the bar takings (and he deliberately hikes up drink prices to maximise income)
He charges each gong act £50 to enter the show, and an extra £25 if they don't want their set sabotaging
He pays the support acts with threats and the comperes get redeemable 'Karen vouchers'

He has no respect for the paying customers, to the point were he takes a photo of each of you as you come in, then spends most of the show desecrating on the snaps and force-feeding them to Gavin (who pays £20 an hour for the privilege of working for the Funny Magnet Regime)

AND NOW HE WANTS TO CHARGE YOU AN EXTRA 50p!!!!!!!!!!!!

My lovely horse, running through the field
Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?

I want to shower you with sugar lumps, and ride you over fences
Polish your hooves every single day, and bring you to the horse dentist

My lovely horse, you’re a pony no more
Running around with a man on your back, like a train in the night.

Kapow!

Hehe, a bit of wee came out then.

It makes you wonder if Slater is high maintenance...or perhaps they have some special news it's too early to tell us about yet?  ;)
