BENEFITS OF SUPPORTING

Festivals have become one of Columbia’s staple forms of entertainment. It is a lifestyle here. Our town is home to the Roots ‘n Blues ‘n BBQ Fest, True/False Film Fest, BeerFest, Citizen Jane Film Festival and many more. Columbia has found it’s way onto the national scene when it comes to festivals. Why not be a part of the next big yearly festival that brings laughter to all?

By supporting Show ’em Comedy Festival you are supporting a community. Not only our local community, but also the community of comedians, actors and talent who’s mission in life is to bring people together and make them laugh. By sponsoring the Show ‘em Comedy Festival you are providing Columbia with the opportunity to be the next step up on the “comedic career ladder”.

By sponsoring the Show ‘em Comedy Festival, local businesses will be in the spotlight, gaining premiere opportunities that traditional advertising does not.
The Show ‘em Comedy Festival is a team effort and cannot take place without the community. We understand this and are willing to work with sponsors on customizing packages that offer the best return on investment. We have designed sponsoring opportunities to fit every business on every level. We invite sponsors to adjust packages to fit what suits their budget.

It is our priviledge to work together to find happiness and support to make the Show ‘em Comedy Festival the best it can be, for everyone!
