<h3 style="text-align: center;">PERORMER INFORMATION & GUIDELINES<br />Important! Please read:</h3>
<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Thank you for wanting to performing during Open Mic at the Comedy Spot! Our goal is to give you a place to learn and perform and to put on the best show possible. Here are some things you should know:</strong></p> <p><strong>• You must be at least 18 years old to perform.</strong></p> <p><strong>• If you are performing, you will not be charged admission.</strong></p> <p><strong>• You will receive a maximum of 5 minutes of stage time. Sometimes we give less time, depending on how many comedians are performing.</strong></p> <p><strong>• Don’t feel that you have to use your full time if you don’t have material.</strong></p> <p><strong>• Please do not “run the light” (go over your time). You will receive a red light signal when you have one minute left.</strong></p> <p><strong>• We try to get as many people on stage as possible. The show usually runs 2 hours. Sometimes, we can’t accommodate everyone. If you don’t make the list, please try again on a future night.</strong></p> <p><strong>• Sign-ups begin at 7:30pm. The host will meet you outside or in the lobby. No additional sign-ups will be taken once the show begins.</strong></p> <p><strong>• We do not take early sign-ups.</strong></p> <p><strong>• The host is in charge of who performs; they make the list. It takes a while to make the list, so be patient and respectful. They are doing their best to get you on stage.</strong></p> <p><strong>• The list will be announced right before the show starts.</strong></p> <p><strong>• If you bring someone who pays for a ticket, we will get you on stage. Promise. </strong></p> <p><strong>• Please be quiet backstage; the audience can hear you.</strong></p> <p><strong>• Be respectful to other comedians and Comedy Spot staff.</strong></p> <p><strong>• Respect the audience. They’ve paid to see you. Don’t shit on them.</strong></p> <p><strong>• We do not want to censor you, but we will shorten your set if it is outright offensive or hateful. We will also limit your set if you are are attacking the audience or if you aren’t telling jokes.</strong></p>

<p style="text-align: center;"><strong><i>Online presales close at 7pm on the day of the event. Doors open at 7:45.</i></strong></p> <p><strong>Improv Wednesdays</strong> features four improv teams creating comedy scenes, off the top of their heads, inspired by cast members' true stories from their past. These hilarious and smart performances start with a single suggestion from you, the audience!</p> <p>You will see new comedians, some seasoned veterans, and everything in between. All of the performers have taken the Comedy Spot's core <a href="https://www.saccomedyspot.com/classes/">classes</a> (Improv 101-301), auditioned, and now have an opportunity to continue their training through regular rehearsals and performances.</p> <p>Each team performs a long-form (scene-based) improv structure (form) named the Helix. Helix performers create high-paced, high-energy, two-person scenes inspired by the unusual parts of cast members' true stories. Characters, themes, and stories continually spiral in and out of the show until they reach a climactic ending. The Helix is an original improv form developed by Sacramento Comedy Spot.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><em>First time at the Comedy Spot?<br />Check out our <a href="https://www.saccomedyspot.com/faq/">Frequently Asked Questions</a>.</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: center;"><em><strong>Online presales close at 7pm on the day of the event. Doors open at 7:30.</strong></em></p> <p style="text-align: center;">For<strong> Drosophila</strong>, life is short and sweet--and that’s just how they like it. Ford Lawson and Andy Sarouhan are two peculiar little improv bugs who’ve known each other for so long, it feels like they share a pair of antennae. Come watch them buzz the stage at 100 generations an hour, seamlessly hatching one story-driven scene after another and always offering a healthy dose of Drosophila magic to bend time, space and reality. Long live the short-lived!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><em>First time at the Comedy Spot?<br />Check out our <a href="https://www.saccomedyspot.com/faq/">Frequently Asked Questions</a>.</em></strong></p>
