CAB Comedy Show Spring 2019
If you missed out on CAB’s Comedy Show this year, CAB Co-Chair, Michael Beaudoin (‘21), is here to give us the low-down on what went down in the arena with Nick Offerman.
As a member of CAB E-Board, Michael shares that, he is responsible for everything regarding the shows. Including planning a budget, selecting an artist, contacting a talent agent, and setting up the stage before and tearing it down after the show.
Regarding the success of the event Michael shares,
“We sold out tickets to the show and the crowd seemed to enjoy every minute of it (I know I did). He is just as funny off screen as he is on screen and I am extremely happy that we had the opportunity to bring him to Bentley this year.
Ever wonder how CAB decides on their Comedy Show star?
“After getting our budget set by AIA, we contacted the talent agency that CAB uses for all of our live event productions including Spring Day and Back2Bentley. These agents gave us a list of names of comedians within our budget who were available the day we wanted to hold the event. From there, we met with our committee members and watched clips from each comedian until we came to a consensus about our top three choices. We sent these choices to our agents who sent the bids to the comedians. Nick Offerman was one of these options, and once he was able to confirm his availability, we started the process of getting contracts signed and preparing for the show!”
