**It’s a TicketText update klaxon!**
The new & updated TicketText Scanner App has been released!
We’ve added some new features and improved the old system so you can have the best TicketText experience possible!
Here’s everything you need to know...
You will never need to print out a guestlist again. The app allows you to control your guestlist with ease using your smartphone or tablet. The app is connected to our live servers so once you have scanned a guest’s e-ticket the app will instantly update, allowing you to track up to the minute sales for all of your events. You can even keep events on sale once your show has started so you can continue selling tickets throughout the night!
Guest can’t find their barcode? Not a problem! Search your list by name and swipe right or tap on a guest’s name to check them in.
Avoid long queues and complaints at the venue. By setting up multiple box office staff on the app you can sign in guests simultaneously. Speedy and efficient.
Need to make a last minute line up change? Simply click through from the app to your promoter page to manage your event in real time.
For the past 20 years, The Backyard Comedy Club has been one of the most beloved London comedy venues. Located in the East End, comedian Lee Hurst founded the purpose-built comedy venue that has become a platform for the world's biggest comedy stars whilst still supporting the best in upcoming talent.
Alongside their wildly popular weekly shows, aptly named Thursday, Friday and Saturday Night at The Backyard Comedy Club, the venue is home to a large selection of comedy nights that cater for specialities ranging from health to musicals to evenings of unnecessary detail; if you want to laugh about it, The Backyard Comedy Club will have a night that lets you.
The best of the best perform at The Backyard Comedy Club, Russell Howard doesn't believe there's a better comedy club in the world, and in October Rhod Gilbert is performing a special one off charity night with The Comedy Hump to raise funds for the Velindre Cancer Centre. The centre supplies specialist treatment to over 1.5 million people across South East Wales and beyond. Based just outside of Cardiff, every year they treat over 5,000 new referrals and around 50,000 outpatients.
Surely there's no better way to spend an evening then in the presence of a hilarious Welshman raising money for charity? No, we don't think there is either.
October 3rd 7.30pm

TicketText is looking for an enthusiastic graduate to join our team in Kings Cross.
Established in 2013, TicketText is a rapidly growing live entertainment group. Specialists in the comedy sector, we have operating divisions in B2B and B2C ticketing, content, live promotions and venue management.
Our clients include the likes of Micky Flanagan, Jason Manford, Have I Got News For You, and a huge number of other comedians, comedy clubs, agents and venues.
We also run our venue in the heart of Kings Cross called 2Northdown where we host an array of comedy shows, acoustic gigs and spoken word.
The team is young, dynamic, small and friendly and the office environment is relaxed but hard working. The office is shared with two other lovely companies, one of them has a dog who wears a jumper!
On occasion, we all work evenings, attending and helping out with shows and the (very) occasional weekend. We’re a social team and have drinks in the office on a Friday evening, as well as going for team lunches. (We also love an excuse for a monthly team day out. This month we’re off trampolining!)
Being a small team, you will be supporting all aspects of the company, becoming involved in a number of different areas where you will learn a huge amount.
There is massive opportunity to grow within the company and develop your position.
Some of the day-to-day tasks include:
Marketing and Sales
- Creating content for all social media accounts (read: create original content yourself or source funny content from the interwebs)
- Help with maintaining social media accounts
- Creating, sending and manage HTML email campaigns
- General office admin
- Assisting with new business and sourcing leads
- Assisting in content writing for our websites and blogs
· Supporting our account managers and assisting clients where necessary
· Responding to client requests and queries via email and over the phone
- Helping generally with shows in the venue (located below the office)
- Assisting generally with the sales and marketing admin
- Customer service enquiries
We’re looking for a recent graduate, with a passion for comedy and live entertainment. You will be organised, friendly, and hard working (ideally) with a great sense of humour. There will be some work in the evening required so flexibility is a must.
