During Covid-19 restrictions, Laughs Unlimited Comedy Club is killing it with outdoor shows by using silent disco headphones to deliver social distanced hilarity!
Laughs Unlimited Comedy Club is in the news using our headphones. The August 2020 news article is titled: Laughs Unlimited Celebrates 40 Years and Pivots to Entertain Under Covid-19
“The headphones provide a surround sound experience that creates the close intimacy of laughter in the group setting of a comedy show without the concerns of the general public hearing jokes they didn’t sign up for.”Sacramento KFBK news –
They call it “Inside Jokes – Outside Laughs.” Below is how it works:
The club started with 40 silent disco headphones with guests at tables on the sidewalk.
The show worked so well, that they went to 80 headphones in one week.
The city liked the silent comedy so well that they closed the street and invited the club to use the whole street!
The club charges admission on a per-headphone basis. Only the people wearing the headphones can hear the comedy.
The comedians are saying that the outdoor-silent-headphone-comedy works even better than comedy indoors because the headphones help audiences to pay attention.
The guests are less self-conscious and more focused while wearing the headphones and are therefore laughing harder.
They tell me that the audio going directly into their ears allows them to hear the jokes better, – even while they are laughing. This allows the comedians to build the jokes on top of each other faster and more effectively.
More laughter means more fun for both audiences and comedians!
An added benefit is for the guests that ‘don’t get it’ and then fall behind, -you know, -the ones who ask their friends for clarification and then miss the next joke? With the addition of the headphones, they don’t interrupt their friends as much and so both they and their friends are missing fewer jokes and laughing more often.
When guests do want to talk to each other, they simply remove the headphones, but because that takes effort, they do it less during the show. And if they do, it never disturbs the other guests.
Here is a YouTube interview showing the how well headphone comedy works for Laughs Unlimited.
The headphones eliminate all audio distractions.
The comedians love the headphones so much, they are actually contemplating continuing the use of the headphones indoors.
The neighbors love it because there are no loudspeakers. The only amplification is inside the headphones, so it makes a much more quieter gathering.
The headphones have a range of 300 meters, so there is plenty of social distancing available.
Because of the extended range of the headphones, there is plenty of room for audience growth as well.
