Weekly Comedy Open Mics in Memphis

Our places to practice in the Bluff City.

Open mics are a fantastic place to see comedy being molded, made and, sometimes, completely stepped on. They are usually free, and a chance to see great bits come to life, and horrible bits die.

Memphis hosts a variety of open mics in different parts of town on every weekday. Most mics allow 3-5 minutes of stage time for anyone who signs up. Punctuality is almost always appreciated. Hosts and venues are listed below. To sign up at an open mic, usually showing up on time and speaking with the host is all that is required.

List current as of April 20, 2017
