Showmentum is an entertainment production company specializing in live comedy. We offer a complete solution for wineries, breweries and public venues. Everything from talent management, ticket sales and on-site production is covered. Just give us a time and place and we take care of the rest. Located in Livermore, CA Showmentum, Inc. provides services all over the Bay Area including greater San Jose, Tri-Valley, Oakland, San Francisco, Marin and Sonoma Counties.
From an entertainment and logistics perspective, comedy is a great watch to increase customer loyalty and drive new business to your space. Showmentum comedy productions are a great way to have a large number of people in your business for 2-3 hours at a time. The floor space is minimal (as little as 8′ x 8′) because you do not need a dedicated space like a stage.
If you’ve ever tried – or even thought about – leveraging your space to host and event, you know what a pain it can be. There are so many moving parts like trying to find reliable talent, promoting the event, and renting special equipment. Even after doing all those things, sometimes the juice isn’t worth the squeeze. If only there were less risky ways to leverage your space to maximize customer satisfaction.
That’s where Shomentum comes in. We provide a complete turnkey entertainment solution including:
- Booking and Managing Talent
- Production Logistics
- Ticket Sales & Collection
- Promotion & Marketing
Booking and Talent Management
We manage the entire relationship
What works for one audience may not for another. That’s why it’s important to have someone like us who can take the time and ensure a proper fit between your organization and the comedians who perform in your space. Showmentum has an extensive network of amazing comics ranging from bright emerging stars to seasoned touring professionals that is always growing.
Showmentum negotiates all the terms and fees directly with the comics at no additional cost to you.
We can turn any space into a performance space
Whether you have dedicated stage or need to convert some indoor or outdoor area into a performance space, we have all the equipment necessary to deliver a high-quality performance. No need to rent an expensive public address system, because it’s included with every show. We can set up systems on-site that work for small crowds of under 100, all the way up to 1000.
Ticket Sales & Collection

Showmentum productions are a great way to improve sales during otherwise slower periods. Whether you’re looking to improve customer loyalty or net-new business, comedy shows are a compelling way to leverage your space with minimal effort.

Fundraisers & Special Events
Events are a great way to raise money and awareness for any organization. However, they can also be expensive and time consuming. Whether you’re a school, a charity, or foundation, your time is best spent doing something else. We can make your next event a big success by taking all the pain out of the process. Here are just some of the ways we help:
Strategy We’ll work with you to determine the purpose of the event, whether it’s raising money, increasing awareness, or just rewarding a job well-done. After that, we set goals so we know what success looks like so we have a clear picture of what we’re trying to achieve.
Budget We can work within your organization’s budget, even if it’s zero. We have relationships with corporations, venues, and retailers who can provide sponsorships and donations. We also specialize in self-funding events. These events generate money and awareness by selling tickets to the general public. A portion of each ticket sold is donated to the sponsored organization.
Marketing & Promotion Whether you’re trying to attract a new audience, or speak to an existing one, we can help you with promotion, advertising and marketing for the event.
Planning and Logistics This is where we make your life easier. We can provide a turn-key solution for any event including booking talent, developing content, production set up. We work with a large roster of talent from musicians to comedians to speakers. Let us find the right fit for your organization and event.
