Open Mic Night – Every Wednesday
The Joke Joint is proud to help new comedians develop their skills and material.
Every WEDNESDAY at 8:00 you’ll see several comedians, young and old, amateurs and professionals, getting up on stage, and doing their best to make you laugh!

To perform at open mic, come in to the club an hour before the show, and ask to perform. If you don’t get to perform that evening, you’ll be given the opportunity to sign up for a future show.

Free Comedy Workshops on Wednesday nights at 5:30pm
In addition to providing a show dedicated to developing talent in the Space City the Joke Joint also offers a weekly workshop every Wednesday, from 5:30 to 7:30.

These workshops are intended for performers (new and experienced) to get together to try out new jokes, share stories and suggestions, and to offer support. The workshop is completely free and you are welcome to stay for the Wednesday night show, too.
Please do not call the club for information.

St Danes

St. Danes is a mixed bag. Some nights you die. Other nights you fly. It’s loud bar who patrons are a mix of Rice football players, frat boys, business professionals and random folks tempted of the promise of 35 cents wings and 3 dollar beer…s.

The Comics are a ragtag line up of pros, semi-pro, amateurs, promising hopefuls, the hopeless and the attention starved. Imperfect, unpredictable, unforgiving and affirming. It’s Houston Comedy at it’s best and worst on a Thursday Night.

  1. I’m looking for open. Mic nights for july and august. This would be my first time on stage I’m so excited to finally get started. I really don’t where to start. I really need your help. If you can keep me posted on open mic nights please I would appreciate it.

  2. Can’t wait to start open mic! I did a couple shows in front of a high school audience and it was awesome! Definitely want to do this some more!

    • Did you have enough material to be comfortable? What advise do you have for someone who is just starting to participate in open-mic nights?

      • Confidence is key as usual. Also, perform what you find funny, being a true comedian always has the best outcome.

  4. A lot of places use Friday and Saturday nights for paid shows and headliners. You don’t want to risk a bad beginner making people uncomfortable and cleaning out their house on a prime night.

    For those asking for advice:

    Know your style-
    Are you a shock comic? Outrageous? Sarcastic? Dry? Stick to what you are comfortable with and don’t try to be something you aren’t just because you feel like it’s what people want.

    Have material-
    Long awkward pauses kill the momentum of even the best sets (unless that’s your style.). Have something on standby to go to. Something that flows naturally so you don’t have to stumble your way through it.

    Understand that it’s not all glamor-
    I’ve heard several stories of comics just dogging people at open mic night to discourage them. You have to understand, it’s very competitive for paid gigs. Even the nicest ones are secretly hoping you bomb.

    Have realistic expectations-
    Even the best comics get a dead crowd every now and again. Chances are, you will bomb at some point. Be willing to accept that. On the other hand, I don’t know of a single comic that got an HBO special after their first open mic night.

    DO NOT STEAL MATERIAL-
    It happens all the time: a comic hears something at an open mic night, and figures out how to deliver it better, and fits it into their routine. But comedy gigs see the same faces frequently. If you get caught, I’ve heard of fist fights, public shaming, and everything in between. That’s a reputation you just don’t want.

    Have Fun-
    Your energy is going to lead the audience. If you are having fun, they are more likely to have fun as well.

    Know your audience-
    What works well in church may not go over well in a dark, seedy bar.

    Good luck, at least you can say you tried. That’s more than most.
