FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday 5th October 2012

Sydney entrepreneur, Adrian Saunders created FiveMinutesLive.com. Adrian was one of the two founders of Sydney’s iconic “Quest for the Best contest”. The concept combines Saunders passion for creating online communities with his love of stand-up comedy.

“The most frustrating part of being a new stand-up comic is the lack of stage time available. When you do land a gig, often the audience is small and consists of other comics nervously waiting their own stage time. FiveMinutesLive.com allows comics to have a global audience. Our commitment is breathe new life into the local comedy scenes, create an opportunity for comics to develop themselves and create the stars of tomorrow” Adrian Saunders Founder
