About

Good Times Comedy Club

Project 2019-10-09 13:54:42 +1300

Post-quake Christchurch's comedy scene has exploded. Comedy has now become part of our cultural identity as a city, and it is time we finally had a dedicated comedy venue. Good Times will be just that. Providing a good time for all, right in the heart of Ōtautahi.

And we have a long history of providing laughter in this fine city, with regular shows through Grandpa Figs, and our annual two week festival The GoMedia Comedy Carnival.

Obviously there are a lot of costs in getting a venue going, but if we can raise 10k then we know we can get up and running to a level we're happy with. We have bigger plans beyond that though, and anything we raise above 10k will go towards shaping Good Times in to a world class comedy club.

If you want Ōtautahi to be a more creative city, then please donate as much as is fiscally responsible for you.

Some bloody bonza signage concepts!

30/11/2019 at 11:22 AM

Identity Signs has done an amazing job of whipping up these designs for our signage. This is our dream signage, the ideal situation... but it's not going to be cheap. So how much of this happens is really dependant on the PledgeMe campaign. Big bold branding is going to be super important to making this work, so the more we can do the higher our chances of success!
Please spread the word, go find a friend today who you can convince to pledge, and go hustle your boss to grab a private function!

We really think Identity have killed this by the way, and they're just awesome to deal with. If you need any sort of signage done then make sure to give them a call.

Ten Days to Go!

29/11/2019 at 9:03 AM

We are so close to making this happen with just ten days to go! Unfortunately we are tracking below where we need to be, so please go hustle a friends in to pledging, or better yet, convince your boss to grab one of the staff functions!

The media are now on board!

27/11/2019 at 10:41 AM

A big thanks to The Press and Stuff.co.nz for noticing our little venture and giving us a cracking little article! Not only has it really helped us get the word out to the public... but we've already been approached by another major media outlet who wants to cover what we're doing, so keep an eye out for an update on that!

Here's a link to the article, why not go find one friend today who you can convince to pledge?

Halfway there! Here's a floor plan!

21/11/2019 at 7:19 PM

Thank you so much for your support so far! We are getting closer to our goal, but also a whole lot closer to the end of the campaign, so please remain vigilent and keep spreading the word!

Below is a floor plan to give you a little idea of what Good Times will be like. You can find more information in a video I just did on the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GoodTimesComedyClub).

Thanks again!



Over 1/3rd of the way there!

06/11/2019 at 11:30 AM



Less than a week in we have already raised $3486! That means if just one of you convinces your boss to grab a work function then we will be half way there! Thanks so much for the support so far!

We've hit 10% so here's a little glimpse inside the space!
