Open Mics

IMPORTANT NOTE – There are currently no open mics. Anywhere. Comedy is dead. As will we all be soon.

This list was pretty out of date anyway. We’ll have to see where everything stands when (…if) this ends.

A comprehensive* list of comedy open mics in the Boston/New England area.

*This list relies on the people who run shows keeping us updated, it is by no means exhaustive. Contact the host/venue to verify if a show still exists, and if you find something here that is out of date (or have a show that isn’t listed) use the contact form to let us know!
