It was intimidating performing in a venue with such high profile international and national, but the Gelo crew treated my show treated my show with the same importance as any other. The Gelo crew catered to all my needs that the only thing I needed to worry about was doing a good show, and as a performer, that’s the only thing you want to worry about. I look forward to working with Gelo again.

We love comedy

Gelo only programs comedy. We think the world needs more of it, and we can’t get enough of it. This means our audiences love comedy too, and they’ll love you.

We know comedy venues

Gelo have programmed and managed comedy-dedicated independent venues for FRINGE WORLD 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017. In 2015 Rosie O’Grady’s was nominated for Best Independent Program.

We provide support to artists

We provide an online ‘Info booth’ artists to be directed to, regular email-outs of opportunities & info, free workshops for local artists, and social catch ups including but not limited to  chicken nugget feasts.




“super-friendly, very helpful with promotional support, are on top of the admin side of things & their venues are some of the best catches of the festival. Their whole approach is very artist-friendly and I’m looking forward to working with them again when I next do the Fringe.”
