How it works
No experience necessary! Come find out what it feels like to tell a story live on stage.
Come prepared to tell a story and put your name on the list. The list closes at 7pm.
Performers will be selected randomly from the basket. The show ends at 9:30pm.
Your name wasn’t selected? Come to the next Open Mic on the first Monday of the next month!
Tell a 6-minute story. You’ll hear a 1-minute warning ding at 5 minutes and a “done” ding at 6 minutes.
Tell from memory or read from notes—up to you!
After you tell your story, stick around to hear the rest!
What Kinds of Stories?
It can be a funny story, a sad story, a serious story, a “fall off your chair” hilarious story—but it must be a brutally honest and true story. Great stories on stage have a beginning, middle, and end, and involve stakes (something that stands to be gained or lost).
What We Aren’t
No stand-up comedy
What else to leave at home:
No hate speech
No political stumping
