Socks Zoom Shows - Top 15 Sales Chart

 Here's a bit of fun, a Top 15 chart of the Socks' Zoom shows based on ticket sales. Audiences have always included extra guests, so this doesn't reflect the total number of people in the 'room', and also bears no relation to the quality of the show. So, which show's our biggest seller to date?

15 - April 17 - Superheroes - 21 (See what I mean about quality? Our award-winning show sold fewest tickets to date)

14 - April 30 - Social Club 2 - 25 - (Not, as I thought, our lowest-seller ever. But, at £5 a ticket, our lowest takings)

13 - Nov 7 - Roll Up - 26 (A last-minute addition to the schedule, when its live outing in Birmingham got cancelled)

12 - April 2 - Social Club 1 - 30 (The first of our brave new venture with guest acts)


11 - 
Dec 31 - Hogmanay Quiz - 32 (Another gig announced at short notice, with stiff competition on the night)

10 - Sept 25 - New Material Night - 33 (Actually featured less new material than the subsequent show)

8 = Aug 13 - Socks In Space - 37 (Our first Edinburgh Fringe Zoom show, that won us a 4 star Scotsman review, and bigger audiences for its successors)


8= 
Jan 22 - Burns Night - 37 (A fun themed night, I was pleased with how much new material we came up with)

7 - Mar 19 - Talking Of Changing The Subject… - 40 (Some have called it our funniest show, made up mostly from material that pre-dated our current fan-base, from our 2009 & 2010 shows)

5 =  Oct 30 - Hallo Ian - 54 (The most new material of any Zoom show, one I'm very proud of)

5 = Aug 21 - Boo Lingerie - 54 (Our second Edinburgh Zoom show, benefitted from the previous week's 4 star review)



4 - Feb 12 - Murder Mystery - 55 (Working with Bedford Fringe's box office helped here. Hopefully not an experiment too far)

3 - Aug 29 - Shakespeare - 56 (The best show, and the biggest crowd of our Edinburgh Zoom season)

2 - July 31 - All Request - 62 (Our Zoom debut. After which, it would seem, some had had their fill)



1 - Dec 11/13 - Xmas Special - 64 (Scores the biggest sales, by dint of us having to re-perform it two days later, because of broadband problems, netting an extra 8 sales for the second night)

Let's see how well we do with our next show. Will it be our last before live gigs take over in earnest? Only time will tell...

May 14 - Eurovision Sock Contest
