PERFORMER INFORMATION and GUIDELINES — Important! Please Read:

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:

  • You must be at least 18 years old to perform.
  • If you are performing we don’t charge you admission.
  • You will receive a maximum of 5 minutes of stage time. Sometimes we give less time depending on how many comedians are performing.
  • Don’t feel that you have to use your full time if you don’t have material.
  • Please do not “run the light” (go over your time). You will receive a light when you have one minute left.
  • We try to get as many people on stage a possible. The show usually runs 2 hours. Sometimes we can’t accommodate everyone. If you don’t make the list please try again.
  • Sign-ups are at 6:30PM on Sundays and 7:30PM on Mondays. The host will meet you outside or in the lobby.
  • Sorry, we don’t take early sign-ups.
  • The host in in charge of who performs- they make the list.  It takes a while to make the list so be patient and respectful, trust me, they are doing their best to get you on the list.
  • The list will be announced right before the show starts.
  • If you bring someone who pays for a ticket we will get you on stage. Promise.
  • Please be quiet backstage- the audience can hear you.
  • Please be respectful to other comedians and Comedy Spot Staff.
  • Please respect the audience. They’ve paid to see you. Don’t shit on them.
  • 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.
