THE GRINNING IDIOT COMEDY CLUB

"A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin

BEHAVIOUR BOND

      
The Grinning Idiot Behaviour Bond is not designed to compromise your party’s evening but rather to ensure that some larger groups do not spoil the evening for others.
 
The aim of the Bond is to encourage collective, responsible behaviour and co-operation from the whole party. The Behaviour Bond applies to bookings of 8 or more people and is payable in cash only on the night.
 
The Bond is £15 per person booked.
 
The Behaviour Bond must be collected together in its entirety before any member of your party enter the comedy club.
 
On entry a member of your party will be asked to sign 2 copies of this agreement, one of which they will be required to retain as a receipt.
 
Should all the conditions of the Bond have been adhered to then the Bond can be collected as the last member of your party leaves on presentation of your receipt.
 
Entry will not be permitted without the full bond and tickets are non-refundable.
 
Lost receipts will result in collection the next working day by arrangement and upon presentation of a passport or photo card driving licence by the signatory.
 
The Grinning Idiot reserves the right to retain the entire Bond.
 
We are not looking for excuses to retain your bond; we only wish for everybody entering our event to be able to enjoy their evening without any disturbances to the performance.
 
If members of your party are not adhering to the rules, they will be approached by a member of staff and given a verbal warning; if it is deemed necessary to approach the party for a second time, the party member(s) will be asked to leave and the bond will be retained in full.
 
There is no appeal; the decision of the organiser will not be taken lightly and is final.
 
 
      
THE CONDITIONS
 
1) Polite, respectful and courteous behaviour is expected by all members of your party towards the comedians, venue staff and other customers. Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated.
 
2) No using your phone during the show; no flash photography or recording is permitted during the show.
 
3) Persistent talking during the show, or constant, abusive or just tedious heckling that is not in the spirit of the show can result in warnings; in the event of any of your party members being asked to leave the venue, the full bond will be retained.
 
4) Any member of your party found in possession of or found using any prohibited drugs will be asked to leave. This will result in the loss of your Bond. Names may be taken for police records.
 
The list above is not exhaustive, and any damage and costs incurred beyond those that can be recovered by the Bond will be pursued through court proceedings.
