Over the last ten years I have had many websites designed, built, hosted & updated by Alys McDonough and I wouldn’t use anyone else. Her service has always been reliable, fast, efficient and very reasonably priced. She also managed and produced a show I did at The Melbourne Comedy Festival, which involved promotion, ticket and merchandise sales, booking of venues and anything else that needed doing. She is more efficient at her work than many of the larger management agencies.
Alys is an incredible comedy producer . She had successfully produced comedy shows at Australia’s most prestigious venues . I have been fortunate enough to work with Alys on several occasions . She pays close attention to both production values and looks after performers and treats them with the utmost of respect . Alys is extremely proactive in making sure ticket sales are up and shows are at capacity. Alys is a one woman show who is highly skilled be it producing one off shows or for large scale comedy festivals. An amazing and creative person to work with. Alys’ graphic design skills are world class. So happy I found her to design my website. Alys is always happy for my input and when something needs to be updated, Alys is on to it right away. Alys has also designed eye catching flyers for me. She really is a talented graphic artist and I highly recommend her.
Alys 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 Alys’ service though is her encyclopedic 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!’
Alys is by far one of the hardest working people I have had the pleasure to work with in the industry. She absolutely prides her self on her work by delivering on what she promises, which to me is very important. Alys has fantastic organisational skills which made everything go as planned and she easily adapts to her environment to make it work if things don’t go according to plan. What I love about Alys is that she tells it how it is, she doesn’t promise the world and under deliver, she tells you what her services are, how she plans to do it and then gets it done. I would highly recommend Alys, her professionalism, services and results are worth every cent.
Thank you for your great work on my web site. I love your ideas and I’m thrilled with the result … and really appreciate the super efficient service you gave. I’d be more than happy to recommend you to my friends and associates.

Alys (otherwise known as ‘The Flyer Ninja’) is the best flyer distributer we’ve dealt with. We worked with Alys over the course of one month while she was helping to promote our 2017 Fringe World show. Over the course of the festival we had 36 performances and Alys was an important part of our team and our success. Alys contributed towards our selling out of 20 shows and coming very close with most of our other shows during our season. We regularly saw Alys in action talking to people and her manner in dealing with people whilst flyering is extremely personable and friendly but not pushy. During festivals you often have people pushing flyers in your face from all directions but Alys has such a friendly approach – choosing who she talks to and finding thier interests so that she can make suitable recommendations. She also took the time to see and understand our show before she got started so that she knew us and the show well which helped her to successfully promote the show. I can not recommend Alys enough!”
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!

Alys is incredibly dedicated to her work, she researches the shows she’s working with so that she knows how best to represent them. You don’t just get a flyerer, you benefit from her experience and enthusiasm too. She’s experienced, hard working and reliable, a pleasure to work with.

Alys is a woman of many talents! Always very professional, friendly and dedicated to her work. She gives a lot of time to understanding artists and their shows and does an amazing job being seen in all the right places to sell shows. I’ve loved attending her comedy shows – as a producer, Alys is very well organised and you can see the dedication and passion she puts into them. Can’t wait to see what Alys creates next!
Alys fliered for me during Perth Fringe 2016. She was great- always engaging with the punters rather than just flinging fliers at random people, so that she gave out fewer fliers overall, but had a much higher hit rate of people actually turning up to the show because of Alys fliering them. She’s reasonably priced, very reliable and really cares about the shows she is promoting. I’ll definitely be booking her again.
