How do I sign up to perform?

Sign up is available 12 pm- 7 pm day of show and is now ONLINE ONLY. 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.

How do I check in for the Mic after signing up?

Check in at our host stand, or let Alec know that you've arrived in person. Please make sure to do this no later than 8:25 p.m. so we have time to get the list together with all the names that are checked in.

When will I know if I’m performing?

List of performers is put out promptly at 8:30pm. This list is not posted online until after showtime. 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. You may save seats for guests until 8:25 only, after that, all seats are first come first serve. We recommend arriving early to guarantee a spot in the showroom.
