Based in New York and specializing in the LGBT market, Eddie Sarfaty has used his unique brand of comedy to help raise both funds and awareness for a variety of political, educational, charitable and social organizations.
An evening of Eddie's stand up is an easy and inexpensive way to draw a crowd With Eddie's show there are none of the high costs usually associated with producing live entertainment – no sets to build, no costumes to rent, no musicians to hire, and no royalties to pay. With minimal effort and equipment, Eddie and his support staff can help you produce a successful comedy fundraiser anywhere – a theater, a restaurant, a community center, a lecture hall, or even a private residence.
Working closely with your development staff, Eddie and his team will help you plan and promote an event that is both financially successful and fun. In addition to entertaining your audience, they will provide you with templates for flyers, posters and print advertisements, issue press releases and publicity stills, schedule interviews with local media outlets, work with you on procuring the support of corporate and private sponsors, handle ticketing, and book additional talent if required.
