The Mic on State

The Mic on State is THE must see comedy open mic in Madison! Comics perform to large crowds at one of the few Comedy Central Certified clubs. Each week, 20 - 25 comics are given 3 minutes to perform in front of a large and engaged crowd. Your chances of getting onstage improve if you have been cut in past weeks, bring audience members, or are from out of town. Out of town comics are encouraged to call or email ahead to help solidify a spot.



The Harkener

β€œThe Harkener is a weekly showcase & open mic. The show will start around 9, with sign up available 8:45-ish. There will be 3-4 open mic spots then three booked sets, and then open mic spots til the end of days. The booked sets will be 5, 7, and 10 minutes. The idea is to allow comics the opportunity to run and tape what they believe to be their "tight" 5, 7, or 10 minute set. No - I am not offering nor will I be able to tape anyone's set, but it's a great room with great sound and that's why God gave us iPhones. See you there!”
