Expectations for “The Profile” Open Mic
For The Audience: There are no real “rules” around open mic night, other than comics are asked to keep to their assigned time frame (5 minute sets) and the audience is asked to be respectful. Laughing, if the jokes are funny, is appreciated. There is no heckling. An open mic should be a place where comedians are free to try new things. Some will be new to the craft of stand up and we want to support people at all levels of experience in comedy. Oh, support the venue and the staff – order beverages and tip the servers.
For The Open Mic Comedians: Five minute sets and the list is capped at 20 comics. Sign up / list starts at 8:00. Show at 8:30. Sticking around and watching a few other comics after your set would be cool, but there are no rules. As this mic takes shape, we hope it will be a good addition to the local comedy community.
For The Profiled Comic: Bring your best ten minutes. Each week we hope to put the profile spotlight on a different local comedian and provide a venue where you can bring your friends to share in your comedy journey. If you want to be on the list of profiled comics talk to the good people at Rouch Cut Comedy. We hope to share this spot with many local and visiting comics.
