Open Mic

The Great Indiana Mic-Off

These Wednesday night contests are a democratic way for all talent, no matter how new or how seasoned, to show their stuff. The winner each week is invited back for weekend guest sets - and anyone, win or lose, can be recommended for one of our MC Residencies or paid feature and headliner work.

If you're interested, sign up by clicking here >>The Great Indiana Mic-Off. If you are selected, you will receive a confirmation email with appearance date and time and other instructions.

MC Residencies / MC Paid Program

Our host program is one of the most innovative in the business. All MCs share the common goal of moving up in the comedy world - but that's really hard to do ten minutes at a time. To help, we've established MC Residencies - where the same comedian hosts weekend shows for three consecutive weeks, with the express purpose of growing strong enough to become a feature. These residencies are unpaid - think of it as comedy boot camp. These residencies are in high demand, and we don't have many of them. We reserve them for people who have proven themselves at our Wednesday Mic-Off, so sign up today.

Please note: comics that pass the residency or are already established as a performer, will be paid for hosting shows.
