Testimonials

Thank you for your great work on my web site. I love your ideas and Iím thrilled with the result Ö and really appreciate the super efficient service you gave. Iíd be more than happy to recommend you to my friends and associates.
Andrew Guild - AG Productions.

"Alys is a miracle worker. Putting together a website has been on my to do list for the last 5 years. I do so many things - stand up comic, festival promoter, artist, writer, teacher etc, that I just couldn't get my head round it. I paid one designer and she just took the money and I never saw a thing. Alys takes a real interest in what she does and offers objective advice about how to present yourself better. She is enthusiastic, committed and absolutely tireless. She is always offering great suggestions and is a real live whizz kid with a great eye for design and a well honed ear for comedy!"
Mandy Nolan/Bangalow Big Joke Festival

Alys took my vague ideas ("...something corporate looking, serious, but funky and fun...not sure about colours but something tropical but not too overwhelming...") and all the assorted bits and pieces, and managed to put together exactly what I wanted. She is easy to work with and works quickly so you can get the site up and running as soon as possible, ready for business. I've had nothing but great comments from people who have seen the site. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Epod's services.
Kehau Jackson - Comedian

Thanks for doing such a great job on re-vamping my website, Alys. I now have a website that I am very happy with and to direct people to, thanks to your superb and efficient work. My agent, friends and fellow comedians think its a great site. Keep up the good work.
Nik Coppin - UK comedian.

"Epod reminds me of my conscientious Asian buddy at school who did all my homework for me and let me look at their exam answers. In short, her internet skills are quick, smart, proactive, attentive and ridiculously cheap. The best and most unique part of Epod's service though is her encyclopaedic knowledge and passion for the comedy world. My comedy career couldn't do without her and my advice to any comedian who wants to succeed is 'Back off, I found her first!'"
Jimbo - Comedian

Epod is fast, effiecient , amazingly creative and has a fabulous eye for detail. My website looks fantastic!!! I am so thrilled with Epod's design! For anyone contemplating getting a website, you can't go past Epod for service, professionalism and value. A heart felt thank you."
Jackie Loeb - Comedian / musician

"Alys did a great job on rejuvenating both my official website and myspace page. Really professional, easy to work with and faster than Marion Jones handing back her Olympic gold medals. Alys' no frills approach was perfect for this cuddly comedian. Lets put it in simple terms, if comedy is Batman then Alys is our Robin...Cheers Alys! PS. I actually am drinking a beer..."
Mick Meredith - Comedian, musician, actor

"Alys took my airy fairy ideas, a couple of of photos and designed this great website in double quick time. With her patience, skill and expertise, as well as her very clear instruction she helped me take my wares to the world and I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of doing the same."
Maggie Wood - Comedian/writer/actress

"We have known Alys for a period of 3 years. In that time, she has set up our website for us, see shawschristmaslights.com which also covers our Easter display. Each year, she updates our website for us with new photos, videoclips and information. We would recommend Alys to anyone wanting their own website. She does a wonderful and very professional job."
Peter & Trudy Shaw - Shaws Christmas Lights

"My attempt at putting together my own site was so lame, a fellow comedian said I looked like a backyarder and that I should use epod. What a difference! Itís certainly made me look heaps more professional, and it was literally done overnight with no fuss whatsoever. She is fabulous!"
Ellen Briggs - Comedian

"Thank you Alys, great job on my web sites. Fast and professional. The feedback i'm getting is excellent. It's already got me lots of work."
Steve Allison - Comedian

Want me to finance your tour? (etc)
Comedians...I get quite a few enquiries about this, so I feel that I should address it here in the nicest way I possibly can as I honestly do love you all!

I am a VERY small independent producer in an already struggling Australian comedy industry. I am not in this business to make money, although it would be a very nice surprise if I ever did!

I do this simply because I love comedy and get a lot of pride and enjoyment out of producing shows that otherwise would not have been made.

I am not rich.

The funds for every tour I do or show that I produce come directly out of my own pocket. I can do this by not spending a fortune (err... anything) on renovations.

My acts always get paid regardless of whether I win or lose. My shows do not get cancelled at the last minute - and in the unlikely event that they did, the act would still be paid for the inconvienience.

I don't do this full time, this is just a side-project to my website design and my other casual work I do. There are plenty of larger agencies that do this full time, and if they have knocked you back, there usually is a very good reason why!

You may be funny and an incredibly lovely, amazing person....but I have to really really really really believe in someone before I spend my very hard earned cash and copious amounts of my time working with them.

And no...I do NOT work for free! (except if you are a charity looking for a website/producer/etc)

In most cases with no-name comics, the financial rewards (if any) that come from producing a show at a festival for example do not match the actual time and money put into it. ie. I also don't do door deals!

I am happy to consider any offers you may have with regards to a set payment for my services, but other than that, sorry not interested. I tend to find comics I like and pursue them myself.

In addition to the above, I don't recommend comics for club gigs unless I know them personally and am 100% sure that they are most awesome. Sorry!

With regards to booking club gigs...another reason why I don't do this in a lot of cases is because it gets awkward if gigs get cancelled at the last minute or if payment is not made within a reasonable time. A small 10% commission for example just isn't worth the time/stress of chasing up money that hasn't been paid for services provided.

As a wise man once said, "Comedy is not funny!"
