LEWIS SCHAFFER CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

New York Jewish comic Lewis Schaffer is crowdfunding for his Five Star Edinburgh Fringe show Lewis Schaffer: You are Beautiful.

Already this year Lewis Schaffer has accepted sponsorship from a Palestinian-owned freight company that serves the Middle East, now he has set up a crowdfunding site in yet another attempt to generate revenue.

*Purchasing one £10 ticket gets you one ticket to Lewis Schaffer: You Are Beautiful at Just the Tonic Community Project, Five Stars in The Scotsman.
*Purchasing two £10 tickets gets you two tickets to Lewis Schaffer: You Are Beautiful at Just the Tonic Community Project, Five Stars in The Scotsman.

Actually selling tickets is an alternative form of fundraising for Schaffer. He was known as the King of the Free Fringe, and still tours the UK doing his free show ‘Lewis Schaffer is Free until Famous.’

“Last year was the first year I charged for an Edinburgh show since 2009 – selling out most of the shows at five pounds a ticket. This year tickets are £10 each. Next year I am going to charge £15 each.” Said Lewis Schaffer. “I have to think outside the box, and actually selling tickets is a very weird thing for me to do.”

In an unusual move Schaffer is bringing back last year’s show, originally titled: ‘Lewis Schaffer, Free Until Famous, £5, this year re-titled Lewis Schaffer: You Are Beautiful.

The show is a story of an old love affair and earned him tremendous reviews last year, with critics calling it “endearing”, “electrifying” and “inspirational, almost spiritual.” Comedian Stewart Lee listed it on his top shows of 2015, calling Lewis Schaffer a “genius Jew”.

Schaffer said: “I know it is frowned upon to bring the same show back to Edinburgh for a second year but I am tremendously proud of this show. And most people haven’t seen it. and it got Five Stars in The Scotsman.”

“But people know that no two Lewis Schaffer shows are alike so I’m hoping they will come back and see the show again. The best way to guarantee a seat is to buy a ticket.”
