Open Mics

Open mics are a free-form type of stand-up comedy show. Usually, getting stage time at an open mic is as simple as talking with the host. Experienced comics will often try new material at open mics and develop them until they are fully crafted before trying them at showcases and clubs, making a local mic a great place to see popular and professional comedians in a raw and playful setting. Open mics are usually free, and can be found almost every day of the week.
