Fundraiser Info

How can you raise money for your group through The WSOC?

All you do is simply sell tickets to The Main Event of The World Series of Comedy September 23-28, 2019 at the Casino Queen in St. Louis, IL. For every ticket sold, a donation will be made to your group by The WSOC – the donation you receive is based on which show your guests choose, and the total tickets sold.

The earlier in the week you hold your fundraiser, the more money your organization will receive. Also, the more people that come as part of your fundraising group will trigger an increase in your donation.

All members of your group will pay full price for the ticket, and your group will receive a donation from the WSOC at the conclusion of the festival based on tickets sold.

Benefits – for those that purchase tickets all one show:

  • Your group will be announced from the stage
  • Your group will receive complimentary tickets to our late-night shows
  • At 50, 75 and 100 tickets unlock some bonus benefits for your group, including ads in our program books, showrooms signs, the chance to set up an information booth at the venue, VIP passes, the chance to be a guest judge for a show, on site video board signage, and even your group name and/or logo printed on the official WSOC T-shirt

You can purchase one of two ways:

  • Each guest in your group can purchase tickets through our website at where your fundraiser will be listed, they use a code provided by the group leader (which in turn will be provided to that group by a WSOC salesperson)
