Fundraising for a worthy cause is very rewarding. If you're a community group or organisation looking for practical and effective fundraising ideas then have a chat with Gerard V.

A comedy night fundraiser or hypnotist show is a great excuse for a fun night out, and a lovely way to get your friends, family and community groups involved.

  • More social than a movie night
  • More spectaular than a quiz evening
  • Less work than a fun run

No matter your level of experience with fundraising drives, a comedy hypnotiost show fundraiser is a good idea to explore. There's no harm in asking Gerard V about his availability and the costs involved (he's reasonably priced and there's no up-front cost).

Key points about the hypnotist show fundraiser:

  • Gerard V will bring you a world class show
  • The show is g-rated and guaranteed
  • There's no upfront cost
  • You arrange a venue and sell tickets to the show
  • You could also sell raffles, drinks, food etc.
  • The show is family friendly so you can invite everyone including kids
  • The more tickets sold, the more profit you make
  • On the day of the show you pay Gerard V the agreed amount

You'll need to sell a certain number of tickets to break even and then everything else is pure profit, so the more you tickets you sell the better you do.

Gerard V will make it easy for you:

  • No deposit for booking
  • Often can bring sound and lighting equipment (not always though, please ask)
  • Posters and artwork

You can enhance your fund raising by involving local businesses. You can get them to:

  • Sponsor part or all of the cost of the performance or the venue
  • Contribute prizes to raffle or auction
  • Provide free or discounted food and drink to sell

It is a really good idea to sell your own drinks at the show even if this means you have to pay for the venue. You can make a lot more money if you keep the drinks profits too.




How Much $$$ Can You Raise This Way?

You're probably keen to work out how much money you can raise doing a simple show like this.

It depends a bit on where you are and when you're doing it. It also depends a lot on you and your team.

Send Gerard V a message and he'll get back to you with some actual numbers including costs and the profit you make for a show in your city or town.



Would This Work for You?

Would This Fundraising Work for You?

So can you actually do this? Answer these questiosn for yourself to find out.

  1. Can you get 80+ people to buy tickets for a fun night out? (More is better though, say 180+)
  2. Do you have the confidence to ask people to pay you for tickets and to take their money?
  3. Is yours the kind of cause people will actually support?
  4. Can you arrange a venue somewhere for your event?
  5. Do you have the support of 2 or more additional people who will genuinely help you?

If the answers to the above are all yes then you can totally do this!

If you have trouble asking people for money then you'll struggle.

If your cause does not engage people's hearts, they'll be reluctant to help you.

If you are going it alone - it might be too hard. You'll almost certainly need help.

The show is amazing and world class, so it is worth it for a night out as family entertainment. Even if fundraising weren't involved. And there's no upfront cost so you don't need to be rich to start with. But it does take effort. If there were effortless ways to raise lots of cash, we'd all be wealthy.


If you are still not sure, there's no harm in finding out more about it. Contact Gerard V for a free consultation, you’ll be pleased that you did. This needs to work for everyone.

World Class Entertainment

Gerard V performs in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Europe and the Pacific Islands.

Unconditional Guarantee


Sound, Light & Production

For certain events Gerard V can bring a sound and lighting rig for the show. Basically, if he can drive there from one of his several base depots around Australia or NZ then he can bring equipment with him. That can save you considerable cost and the hassle arranging it yourself.

And remember that if you're going to have a good number of guests in the audience - a decent sound system is a must.







School Fundraisers

We have a special deal for school fund raisers too.






Whacky Wednesday

We have a special deal for Wednesday Nights.

Why would you choose a wednesday? Doesn't everybody want a Friday or Saturday night? Well that's the problem! For many communities, if you organise an event on the weekend then you'll find you're competing with other events for ticket sales, or you find that people are already booked for family functions, 21sts and such. An early evening show on a Wednesday can be easier to get people along to. Especially if they know they'll be home by 10:00pm or 10:30. Also Gerard V is more likely to be available then too. And you get the show for around half price.






Free Consultation

If you're not sure if this is right for you, Gerard V offers a free consultation service over the phone.

  • There's no hard sell - because if your not going to be successful Gerard V doesn't get paid either.
  • It is good to get the right plan in place at the start
  • Gerard V has done hundred of fundraisers, and can help you avoid the pitfalls


There's no harm in finding out more about it. Contact Gerard V for a free consultation, you’ll be pleased that you did. This needs to work for everyone.
