The WSOC is proud to offer custom sponsorship items starting as low as $100. Clients are welcome to choose an “a la cart” approach on how they would like to present their brand during our events.
Inventory items range from print ads to online branding, direct marketing to our comedian database, event signage, product give-aways or even title sponsorship for various aspects of the festival. The only limit on how we present your company’s image and product to the audience and our performers is our own creativity.
Whether your goal is to increase brand awareness, provide product sampling, direct traffic to your website or generate foot traffic at your retail outlet, we are happy to create a custom sponsorship package just for you.

Where will our logo be displayed?
Your Logo will be on our website, throughout the hotel, in the showroom, and at the Meet & Greet. It will also be on our two large video screens on each side of the stage, in the hotel rooms and all off-site events such as Bowling Night. The host of the show will talk about your company telling audience members to visit your website, your store or buy your products.
Who will see our logo?
The festival is at The Belterra Casino so you will be reaching people from all across the United States and the world. Your logo will be seen by:
the thousands who go to our website and Facebook pages
the hundreds who will attend the comedy shows
all of the hotel guests who stay at the hotel during the week of The World Series of Comedy
the comedians who will be performing
the thousands of people walking and driving by the hotel everyday the week prior and the week of the festival

What is the audience demographic?
Comedy is enjoyed by everyone. The potential age range of people seeing your logo is very wide, from 18 to 95. Most audience members fall between 21 to 65. In almost every comedy show audience you will find every ethnicity. The one thing they all have in common is they like to laugh and have a good time. Our comedians range in age from 21 to 65. Users of very age and ethnicity go to our website.
How much will it cost to be a sponsor?
We have different sponsorship packages that fit any budget. We know what it takes to get the word out and we can work together to make your business more successful! And, it will only help us grow The World Series of Comedy!
Will you trade goods for sponsorship?
Yes, we love to trade! We have a list of things we need to make our festival successful. Many of these are things you may already have. Getting your logo out to everyone may be worth a trade for both of us. Just email email@example.com and let him know you want to be a sponsor.
What kind of Sponsor are you looking for?
We are truly looking for everything. Our audience is so diverse that any company who wants to sponsor us will find the right people they want to reach.
Do I have to be at The Main Event to sponsor the festival?
No. We travel all over the country and Canada each year, producing The World Series of Comedy. The fact that The Main Event is in a large Casino Resort means people from all over the world will see and learn about your company.
Can I get a free hotel room for the week of the festival?
Benefits such as accommodations during the festival depend on the size of the sponsorship package negotiated.
My business is very small. You probably won’t want us as a sponsor?
We benefit from partnerships of all sizes. And, just like we love helping comics, we also love helping other businesses grow.
Can I get free tickets or VIP passes to the comedy shows?
Yes. We would like nothing more to have you at a show and point you out to the audience! Amounts of tickets or passes will be negotiated for each sponsorship plan.
Can I play in the Poker Tournament with the comics?
Spots in the tournament can be negotiated in each sponsorship package. We love the idea of having sponsors playing alongside all the comics – as long as you don’t win!
Can I go bowling with the comics?
Yes. We would love to have you join us for this wild night. We will be sure to point you and your company out to everyone who is bowling with us.
Can I hang out at all the events during the week with the comics?
Sponsors are welcome at all of our late night parties. Seats during the daytime seminars can be negotiated in each sponsorship package. As stated before, we would love to let everyone know you are there hanging out with us!
Is there any place I can set up a table?
Booth presence during the festival can be negotiated in a premium-level sponsorship package. Opportunities include locations in front of the audience entrance, as well as booth spots at our famous tradeshow-style Meet & Greet for over 100 comics and comedy club owners.
