Open Mic

The next great comedian is out there waiting to be found. We’ve searched high and low - it would save us all time if they came to us instead.

Show us your inner comedian at our Open Mics! There’s a comedian in all of us (even your deplorable Aunt Janet), and there’s no better stage to launch your comedy career on than the Laugh Factory. We’ve helped numerous comedians get their big break and start a full career in comedy - you could be next. Find open mics and sign up below.
