The Backline hosts an Open Mic for standup every Tuesday at 9pm. Each
comedian will be allowed 4 minutes, and names will be drawn from a hat
for those who show up before 9pm, people who show up after will be added
at the end. Whether it's your first time or you perform weekly, why
not try out your material in front of a great crowd at one of the best
standup venues in town?
The 1st 20 names put into the
hat will be pulled at random until all 20 have gone and each will
receive the full 4 minutes, after them you will go up in the order you
submitted and possibly lose 1-2 minutes depending on overall turnout.
Since names are pulled at random, comics are encouraged to sit and watch
everyone else, creating a fun and encouraging audience. 5 seconds of
grace period before music plays you off. Prepare accordingly.
The show rotates hosts each week (Andrew Morton, Carmela Anderson, Stephanie Finklea)
