ImprovBoston's first weekly open mic...
New procedure: The Comedy Lottery signup list for comics will now be available starting at 6:30PM at the box office on the night of the show. At 9:30PM, names will be drawn from a hat to find out who gets stagetime.
In honor of Women in Comedy Month, female comics will receive priority stagetime during the month of April.
The Comedy Lottery showcases local comics of all experience levels each and every Wednesday at 10pm in ImprovBoston’s intimate Studio Theater. Building a bridge to help comics grow from student to pro, the luck-of-the-draw open mic supports ImprovBoston’s ever-expanding base of standups. The Comedy Lottery provides a welcoming, distraction-free venue for artists and audiences alike to embrace the beloved open mic format at one of New England’s premiere comedy theaters. The effervescent Dana Jay Bein is our resident host.
Are you a comic? You may arrive as early as 9:30pm to add your name to the list. You may only sign yourself up - no signing up your friends! The lottery format means names are drawn at random from the sign-up list. While we can't guarantee that all comics will get stage time on a given night, we do try to feature as many acts as possible. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the Lottery.
