How did The Loungeroom come about? Does 2020 ring any bells...?
The Loungeroom was born from the cancellation of the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2020 in the hope we could support the comedians who had lost ALL their gigs. We have since opened the concept up to other types of entertainment because why not!
We produce the videos and manage the website for free, then split 60% of the monthly subscription pool [after fees] among the performers based on how many minutes of their video has been watched.
Subscribers not only get new content every week, but they are providing ongoing support to our performers. Winners one and all!
