We have Open Mic on Wednesday nights at the beginning of a regular comedy show! We are looking for beginners with original comedy. You should dress better than the audience in front of you. You will be a performer on open mic night.
Three (3) Open mic participants are allowed to do 3-5 minutes of clean (no cursing or street slang), original material. In other words you may not tell jokes you heard or read from somewhere else.
You must call (803) 798-9898 at 10:00AM the last Monday of each month to sign up for the following month. No walk ups ever! There are slots open for three participants and they are assigned on a first call first booked basis.
Open Mic’rs are encouraged to bring guests for your performance. Your guest may see the entire show for 50% off the ticket price, typically $5. The club notices Open Mic’rs that promote their appearance and brings their fans out to the show. Bring 10 or more friends that pay $5 and you will automatically be re-scheduled for next month!
Please take these rules seriously. We do not play with open mic performers. Be professional.
