Open Mics Calendar

Here is a list of "Non-Toxic" Open Mics for Stand-Up Comedy throughout NYC.

  • Viewing this page on your computer will give you the option to sort the list in order of day, time, cost, or any way your heart desires. If you're on your phone, you can't sort and you'll have to click on the individual mic name to see the info. 

  • This list will ALWAYS be growing and changing. If there's a mic I'm missing then by all means send me the info! If any of the information is incorrect, use the contact form to let me know!

  • Please consult the Mission Statement/FAQ if you have questions about how mics are chosen for this calendar, or what is considered "toxic"
