How do I sign up?

Sign up must be done in person from 2pm-8pm on the day of the show. Please note that signing up does not guarantee a spot on the show. We usually have around 40-50 comedians sign up every week with hopes of getting one of the 20 available spots.

When will I know if I’m performing?

List of performers is put out promptly at 8:30pm. This list is not posted online. You must be present to find out if you are performing.

How long is each set?

Sets are 3-5 minutes in length.  Most sets are 3 minutes long.

Is there a 2 beverage minimum for the Open Mic?

Nope! The Mic is different from our regular weekly shows so there is no beverage minimum. We do still have full bar service!

Can I make a reservation to hold spots?

Unfortunately, no. All seats are first come first serve. We recommend arriving early to guarantee a spot in the showroom.
