Perform With Us
Through this page you can apply to perform both at The Butterfly Club (anytime) and at Campari House (for MICF 2021 exclusively).
The Butterfly Club
We present north of 1100 performances of 200 productions every year, many of them new works. Our model is to present short seasons (six performances or fewer) of shows that suit an intimate environment, in one of two dedicated performance spaces that seat 76 and 40 patrons each.
Instead of charging a fixed hire fee or a minimum guarantee, we underwrite the cost of the venue and charge a fee on tickets sold. If your season doesn't sell any tickets, you won't owe us a cent for the space.
Campari House MICF 2021
We are in charge of programming shows at Campari House in Hardware Lane during the 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Unlike the underwriting model at The Butterfly Club, at Campari House we operate on a traditional hire plus commission basis.
If you specifically wish to be programmed at Campari House, please say so in the "About you" section below.
Our shows involve a single performer or small cast, go for 50-60 minutes, have no interval, and rely on clever writing and confident delivery to convey the artist's message.
Write down as many of the items below as you can. Don't panic if you don't have all of it - even if you don't have most of it - send us what you do have and we'll get started. Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk.
