Case study



Find out why TryBooking is a popular event ticketing platform for comedians around Australia.


TryBooking has supported comedians and the Arts community for over 10 years now, providing users with a powerful, cost-effective event ticketing platform for shows.

The ticketing platform is a popular choice for comedians because of the local support, affordable pricing, and powerful features. It is easy for comedians to create events on TryBooking and for guests to buy tickets online.

In 2017, TryBooking was used by over 120 comedians for Melbourne International Comedy Festival to sell tickets online for their shows.

When asked why they chose TryBooking over other platforms, the largest factor was low pricing for both themselves and their guests.
