Open Mic is used as a starting ground for many comics, as well as a place to practice new material for veteran comedians. Some jokes may kill, others may bomb, but it's always a good time. Be sure to support those appearing on stage; it's not as easy as you think! Sit down and watch the show from an empty seat in the showroom. You never know...you might learn something!

Margaret Cho was and raised in San Francisco. “It was different than any other place on Earth,” she says. “I grew up and went to grammar school on Haight Street during the ’70s. There were old hippies, ex-druggies, burnouts, drag queens, and Chinese people. To say it was a melting pot – that’s the least of it. It was a really confusing, enlightening, wonderful time.”
Ignoring the traditions of her patriarchal culture, her mother bravely resisted an arranged marriage in Korea and married Margaret’s father a Korean joke book writer. “Books like 1001 Jokes for Public Speakers – real corny stuff,” Cho says. “I guess we’re in the same line of work. But we don’t understand each other that way. I don’t understand why the things he says are funny and the same for him.”
What Margaret did know is that being a kid was hard. Racing toward adulthood as fast as she could to escape the constant bullying she endured, Margaret began writing jokes at 14 and professionally performing at age 16. Getting picked on, and not having a feeling of belonging, is a subject that’s not only near to Margaret’s heart, but something she still feels very deeply despite all of her successes. In that sense, Margaret has gladly and graciously become the “Patron Saint for Outsiders,” speaking for those who are not able to speak for themselves, and encouraging people who can to use their voice to promote change.
In this day of watered down comedy Nick Di Paolo's brutally honest performances remind us of what great stand up should be - funny, socially relevant and a little bit reckless.
Nick has performed on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan O’ Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show. Additionally, Nick was one of the stars on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, a stand out on many Comedy Central Roasts and recently released “A Breath of Fresh Air”, his fourth one-hour special, to rave reviews.
His strong political opinions and razor wit have made “The Nick Di Paolo Show” a must see program (airing live Monday through Thursday).Nick has also hosted shows on New York’s 92.3 Free FM, “The Nick Di Paolo Show” on SiriusXM, co-hosted “The Nick & Artie Show”.
Not limited to stand-up, radio and writing, he has had acting roles on FX’s Louie, Inside Amy Schumer, The Sopranos, Cop Show and CK’s critically acclaimed Horace and Pete as well as many other sitcoms.
The road to success has been a steady climb for Nick Swardson, who started his career in St. Paul/ Minneapolis, then on to New York and Los Angeles, where he first found success by writing "Malibu's Most Wanted" for Warner Brothers and by featuring in the hit Comedy Central series RENO 911. After catching the attention of Happy Madison Productions, he quickly became a fixture in the company, writing or co-writing and producing such projects as "Grandma's Boy," "Benchwarmers" and co-producing "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" with Adam Sandler and Kevin James. More recently Nick has performed in movies such as “That’s My Boy,” “Blades of Glory,” “30 Minutes or Less,” and “Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star,” which he wrote, starred in, and produced. His first CD/DVD, "Party", on Comedy Central Records (produced by Happy Madison) went platinum. He followed that up in 2010 with his first one-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central, “Seriously who Farted.”
In addition to his career in film and in the world of Stand Up Comedy, Nick continues to have a prolific career in television. His Comedy Central sketch show, "Pretend Time with Nick Swardson” ran from 2010 to 2012, and he voiced the role of Troy on FXX’s animated show, “Chozen.” His Comedy Central Special, “Taste It!” premiered last April on Comedy Central. Nick also recently co-starred in the animated film “Hell And Back” with TJ Miller, Bob Odenkirk and Mila Kunis and co-starred in the most-watched movie on Netflix to date, “The Ridiculous Six” starring Adam Sandler and Will Forte. Most recently he co-starred in Sandler’s second film for Netflix “The Do-Over” starring Adam Sandler and David Spade.
Deon Cole is one of the most in-demand talents on the comedy scene. Not only is he currently a cast member on four hit TV shows, he has also appeared in several popular feature films, released multiple standup specials, and follows a non-stop tour schedule. Armed with a “comic authority born of undeniable charisma” (AV Club), Deon’s completely unique style and delivery have made him a wildly popular performer with fans and critics alike.
Deon plays the character of adjunct college professor "Charlie" on ABC's hit series Black-ish. His role on the Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award winning show, now in its fourth season, is a favorite, with Vulture declaring “Deon Cole is a comedic genius,” AV Club naming him a “scene stealer,” and Variety offering “Cole reminds me of John Belushi, another performer who brought essential sweetness to his unpredictable characters, and who could make you laugh just by looking a certain way at another person on screen.” In January 2018 Deon brought the beloved “Charlie” to Freeform in the Black-ish spinoff series Grown-ish, with Variety declaring him “the hilarious secret weapon that “Black-ish” has deployed in many side-splitting workplace scenes.” The half-hour comedy, which Deon stars in alongside Black-ish breakout Yara Shahidi, is a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education.
Deon also stars as “Det. Daniel "DJ" Tanner” on the TBS comedy Angie Tribeca. The popular show, created by Steve and Nancy Carell, also stars Rashida Jones and is currently in its fourth season. In addition to his three scripted shows, Deon host the game show Face Value currently airing on BET. The show, Executive Produced by Wanda Sykes, finally answers the age-old question, “Can you judge a book by its cover?” Face Value flips the script to award cash and prizes to contestants for correctly guessing facts about strangers from all walks of life –based solely on their appearance and a few personal details. As host, Deon humorously breaks down stereotypes, exposes prejudices, and celebrates the human spirit by highlighting the commonalities and differences among people of various backgrounds, races, religions, beliefs and life experiences.
In addition to Deon’s cast member status on four TV shows, Deon will appear in the Whitney Cummings directed film The Female Brian. Fellow cast members of the much-anticipated feature include Toby Kebbell, Beanie Feldstein, Cecily Strong, Sofia Vergara, Blake Griffin, Lucy Punch, and James Marsden. He has also been featured on several other comedy fan-favorite series including Benched (USA), The League (FX), and Wild N’ Out with Nick Cannon (MTV).
He hosted his own series Deon Cole’s Black Box on TBS in 2013, and he is a familiar face on the late night and daytime circuits, with multiple appearances on Conan (TBS), @midnight (Comedy Central), Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC), The Talk (CBS), and The Real (BET). Deon earned his first Writers Guild Award Nomination and his first Emmy Nomination for “Writing for A Variety, Music or Comedy Program” in 2010 as part of the writing staff on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (NBC). He earned his second Emmy Nomination in 2011 for his work with the writers of CONAN (TBS) and he wrote for Conan O’Brien when he hosted the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner. Most recently, Deon received a 2017 NAACP Image Award Nomination for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his work on Black-ish and was featured as a presenter at the 2017 BET Awards.
In June 2016, Deon’s first hour standup special Cole Blooded Seminar premiered on Comedy Central. His half hour special premiered on Netflix’s The Standups on July 4th, 2017. His standup comedy has also been featured on Shaq's All Star Comedy Jam (Showtime), John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show (Comedy Central), and Laffapalooza (Comedy Central), along with his own Comedy Central Presents: Deon Cole.

Gulman’s latest special, “The Great Depresh,” is his most ambitious work yet — a tour de force look at mental illness, equal parts captivating and inspiring.

If the little angel and devil on your shoulders ever hung out without you, became best friends, and started their own podcast, it would probably sound a lot like Mormon and the Meth-Head. A former Mormon and a former Meth-Head come together to form an equally wholesome and horrific duo. Vulture calls them "your typical pals who tour as stand-ups together, share a storied past of social isolation, and love each other in a “You’re the best friend I’ve been looking for my whole life” way."
They are indeed an unlikely pair. They have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes how to keister meth in Arby's bathrooms across Portland. In their respective routines, they each tackle topics like love, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but with polar opposite perspectives. Audiences get to see their world through Aaron's naive, innocent eyes as well as through Jessa's bleary, bloodshot ones.
A teen mom-turned-meth-addict-turned comedian, Jessa Reed tells raw and candid stories about about her past and her new life as a homeschooling housewife trying to blend in with the normal people. Her honesty is shocking, inspirational and not for the faint of heart. Jessa has been seen at clubs and festivals around the country, and made her stunning television debut last year on Comedy Central's "This Is Not Happening." Then Epix aired a brilliant episode on her story on their late night stand-up series "Unprotected Sets."
Once adored by mothers everywhere, Aaron Woodall is a nice young man coming to grips with a dirty, cynical world. As he finds out that love isn't real, God is dead, and beer doesn't even taste very good, Aaron effervescently shares his disillusions with a sense of wide-eyed excitement. Aaron was one of Team Coco's Top Ten Comics To Watch at last year's New York Comedy Festival and his jokes have been seen on FOX, Hulu, Fusion, and Epix. His first special is streaming now on Dry Bar Comedy.

You can take the boy out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the boy… Stand-up comedian Dusty Slay grew up on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, and his observational comedy and eternally optimistic outlook is peppered with ironies: growing up poor, a love for both hard-core country and classic rock, a career history peppered with jobs like waiting tables and selling pesticides, and what counts as fashion-forward thinking in his world. The trucker hat, long hair and mustache, flannel shirt and oversized glasses aren’t affectations to cultivate a stage persona as the B-side of a 1970-something Bob Seger single—it’s just Slay.
“There’s still a lot of jokes to come. I looked at everything as experience,” he says. “Let’s not get mad about it, let’s enjoy it.”
Just this year, at age 36, Slay has become the youngest comedian to ever perform at the legendary Grand Ole Opry Stage in his adopted hometown of Nashville. He’s notched three appearances in front of “my people” at the Holy Land of country music in less than six months and has also been tapped to host CMA Festival’s Forever Country Stage in June to keep fans laughing between appearances by the biggest stars in country music.
The breakout comedian’s Comedy Central Stand-Up Featuring premieres May 16, and he is also set for a second appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this summer. He’s also primed to appear live at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest 2019 in San Francisco, all continuing the momentum from previous sets on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, andLaughs on Fox;regular stints on The Bob & Tom Radio Show; and a host of live appearances across the country.
Dusty was just picked as one of 2019's Top Comics to Watch by Variety Magazine.
