My favorite way to fight ignorance...
is with education!
I saw a rather insulting post about the Chicago #NoFilterShow and decided to pull some ticketing numbers this morning to drop a little bit of knowledge for some folks. Enjoy!
Average run length of headliner comedy shows currently in Chicago and coming within the next month: 45 minutes (shows ran between 35 - 75 minutes)
Average ticket price for a standard floor level seat: $48.23
35% of those tickets also require a 2 drink minimum at the venue as well so you could really plan on adding $12 to that at least.
If #NoFilterShow was my client, and because most of the shows I referred to are solo acts and there are three headliners here, I’d probably tell them to raise the pricing to $45, so really they are saving you a couple bucks already.
I hope this information is worth the middle finger too!
