Ash Williams first solo stand-up comedy show has hit an early hurdle - he's only sold one ticket.
Ash Williams: Sophisticated (*free entry for pregnant chicks) happens across four nights from Thursday 4 August at The Butterfly Club in South Melbourne.
But on current ticket sales, the Nova 100 host will be performing to no-one.
Ash checked his sales across the weekend and it said ‘0’.
“I thought the system must be down, there’s something wrong here,” Ash told Hughesy and Kate this morning.
“I thought I might just buy a ticket and make sure it is actually broken.
“So I bought my own ticket and the online system’s working fine… so I’ve sold one ticket.”
Having promoted the event to his 3,000+ Facebook friends, as well as a futher 3,000 on his Twitter (and two re-tweets from Nova 100) Ash said he would take his sales campaign to the phones, contacting as many people as he could with a personal plea to come along.
The venue seats 50 people each night, so with one ticket sold, he has 199 to fill.
