Ticketed events are a crucial income source for a wide range of people, including musicians and stand up comedians. If you want to make it so that your creative career has any kind of long term potential at all, you need to start doing shows that you would sell tickets for due to the reason that this would help you earn enough money to pay for other things such as studio time and the like at the end of the day.
Chances are that you think that selling event tickets will be easy if you have a really high profile, but in spite of the fact that this is the case it is important to note that even the most prominent of musicians will fail to sell a reasonable number of tickets if they take things too casually. You need to heavily market these tickets. That would include a targeting social media marketing campaign that would inform people that might be interested in your performance and they would then be a bit more likely to buy a ticket which you would get a commission for.
The main reason why you might not be selling tickets for your event is that people might not be aware that it is happening in the first place. Having all of that information readily available is great because people would have an easier time figuring out where it is and how much the tickets cost. A lack of information can be really disastrous for your event and you would lose so much money that it may very well end up tanking your career and you would never be able to recover from the loss that you incurred.
