Back in 2019 the Amazing Comedy Theater in Huntington Beach was the first venue in Orange County to host a slotted open mic for standup comedy.

Now due to popular demand we’re bringing it back.

A “slotted” open mic is a show where comedians signup online for pre-reserved slots on an open mic standup comedy show.

The performers pay $5 for 5 minutes of stage time and for the convenience of knowing not only that they’ll actually get to go up on the show (without getting bumped for time) but also that they’ll be up on stage and back home or on their way to their next show in just one hour.

We recently had a friend who waited over two and a half hours to go up at another Orange County open mic night dead last and in front of a completely empty room.

The slotted mic format guarantees that you and all of your fellow performers will get up on stage (in front of actual people) all in a one hour time slot.

Our slotted open mics take place several times each week.

You can signup and register for performance slots here:

Tickets for audience members can be purchased at the door or here online:

Thank you very much.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
