The platform is selling tickets and exclusive merchandise for a “Virtual Comedy Experience” like no other.
Fans will soon be able to step into a virtual Sansar comedy club and enjoy live stand-up shows by well-known comics such as YouTube personality Steve Hofstetter – for a new event series called “Comedy Gladiators: a Virtual Comedy Experience.”
The live comedy showcase will, according to Sansar’s creators, Linden Lab, allow fans to do everything in VR that they could do in a real-life comedy club: purchase tickets in-advance, shop for custom merch and memorabilia, even order drinks.
“Fans can purchase tickets online via the Sansar Store, just as they would for a real-life event, and receive instant access to the virtual venue. Once there, they can purchase a wide range of items, including commemorative virtual t-shirts, beer mugs, and even physical copies of Steve’s most recent book, Ginger Kid,” according to their news release.
Tickets are now on sale at $9.99 for the first event in the series which takes place Monday, December 10, at 7:30 PM PT, and features stand-up and storytelling from Hofstetter alongside Ben Gleib (voice of Marshall in Ice Age: Continental Drift), Maz Jobrani (part of the “Axis of Evil” comedy group), Alonzo Bodden (winner of Last Comic Standing season 3), and Mary Lynn Rajskub (actress in Fox series 24).
