Comedy Open Mic – Seattle
October 14 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Hosted by Skippy Sprinkles- always different line-up of comedians hand-picked from the Pacific Northwest comedy scene–as well as occasional headliner, feature and opening comics who may be honing new material or preparing for a TV performance. It’s always a great show, and FREE before 8:30pm after 8:30pm it $5 to get in. Each show is a hilarious mix of professionals working on new material, amateur comedians working on their chops, and first-timers being thrown in the mix.
How do I sign up?
Anyone interested in performing on Open Mic night sign-ups the night of the show at 7:30pm. Preference is given to people that bring people for the audience. Please email Dana@laughscomedy.com
for groups of 10 or more.
If you are a comic visiting from out of town, please email us and we will try to make room for you. All performers must be aged 18 or older.
What if I’m not chosen to be on the show?
We do our best to give everyone an opportunity to perform but we can’t always squeeze everyone on to the show because of high demand. If you are not selected to perform, we have a standby list and your name will be added. We will call names in the showroom from the standby until the show is over. Be persistent and patient (and nice) and we are trying to give everyone an opportunity to take the stage. If you’re not selected, please stay for the standby list and support the show anyway. Your support of the other open mic performers is noticed and appreciated and won’t hurt your chances to be selected for a future open mic.
*A certain number of open mic slots are made available to touring professional comedians. If you are wondering whether or not you’re a touring professional, you’re probably not a touring professional. (Keep working hard and you’ll get there though)
All scheduled performers get 4 minutes on stage. Please stick to your time. Respect the time, audience, and other comedians.
Open Mic is used as a starting ground for many comics, as well as a place to practice new material for veteran comedians. Some jokes may kill, others may bomb, but it’s always a good time. Be sure to support those appearing on stage; it’s not as easy as you think! Sit down and watch the show from an empty seat in the showroom. You never know…you might learn something!
Please stay out of the staff’s way as they are very busy. Stay clear of the aisles. Also, you should order from a server and tip them. It’s the right thing to do and good karma.
