How Dots helps Don't Tell Comedy improve payouts for comedians

Brett Kushner

Brett Kushner

COO, Don't Tell Comedy

Building a brand centered around secrecy, yet still Don't Tell Comedy has successfully created a network of independent comedy shows that span throughout the United States. Creating a social media presence and loyal customer base around secret comedy shows is difficult - but Don't Tell Comedy has succeeded in creating one of the most successful comedy networks till date. Yet, one of the biggest problems they've faced has been automating payouts to their comedian lineups and producers. Prior to Dots, Don't Tell Comedy was forced to send lump sums of money to the show producers, and trust that they were going to pay out each of the comedians. This lack of transparency and traceability left much to be desired, so they decided to partner with Dots to power payouts directly to their comedians and producers.

Dots payout links are their solution of choice. Dots' payout links made comedian onboarding easier, faster, and with nearly 0 churn. Being able to pay comedians immediately, to the digital wallets they preferred, became a huge competitive advantage. Payments to Venmo and CashApp are the norm now - a step up from the impossible to track cash payments of the past. Don't Tell Comedy ensures that their comedians are happy and excited to get paid, while Dots handles all of the difficulty on their behalf.
