Open Mic Night!

Open Mic Night!

Our open mic shows are a BLAST, usually featuring 15 to 20 comics from all over Illinois and beyond! The show is 8 p.m. The lounge opens at 7. If you're not performing, tickets are just $5. Open mic comedy shows are an opportunity for aspiring comics to get stage time and a super-fun chance for anyone who's EVER wanted to tell jokes and funny stories before a group of strangers. It's easy. Prepare 5 minutes ( or less ) and then simply show up, sign up and go up! We've been doing the open mic shows since November of 2000. Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated Janelle James started here in 2012. She now has two Netflix specials and is the hilarious principal "Ava" on ABC's "Abbott Elementary!"

Door Time: 7:00 PM

Other Showtimes

You can arrive for your show up to an hour before the scheduled showtime. The lounge and the comedy room are separate entities, so arriving for a late show while the early show is still going on does not disrupt anything.

We open the lounge an hour before the first show of the night and remain open up to one hour after the last show of the day ends.

Parking is available in front of the club and to the east and west of the building. Overflow parking is sometimes needed and can be found in the grassy area across Farmington Road. There's Butch's pizza and garlic cheese bread, popcorn and chips available for snacking. The lounge has several draft beer choices, bottled beers, frozen drinks, mixed drinks, wine, soft drinks, juices and bottled water.

As always, the shows and the laughter are the most important parts of the night.
