Comedy Open Mics

Open mics are where our performers hone their craft, trying out new jokes, refining old jokes in an environment where they aren’t worried about getting booed or jeopardizing future work. I think it’s pretty neat to see someone who writes on stage. Perhaps you’ll take the time to check one of these open mics out.


Un-Manic Mondays Open Mic

Salem’s longest running open-mic. Good crowds and usually 6-10 comics. 5-15 minutes depending on how many sign-ups we have.

Signups and show start 9ish.
