UPSTAIRS Open Mic at Helium
Covid-19 Update - Spring 2021
Due to current safety protocols, lineups will be solely chosen from the online form. No in-person signups are permitted at this time.
Online signups will begin the Thursday before each Mic. Selections will be made on that Friday. If you do not make the initial list but signed up online, we encourage you to still come. Alternates may be used for "no-shows".
Comics are required to abide by all safety protocols. Failure to do so will result in a removal from the lineup.
Open Mic Info
So you think you have what it takes to make people laugh? Helium holds its Open Mic Night most every Wednesday at 8PM, open to both new talent and seasoned comics. Signups open typically starting at 12-2PM on Thursday the week before the Open Mic you are signing up for, and end 24 hours later at 12-2PM on that Friday. Comics signing up should prepare 3 minutes of material, and be patient with the process, as we get over 100 sign-ups every week. You will be notified via email by Friday night if you have made the list. The final lineup will be posted by 7:30PM in the club that evening, and is drawn at random. Please note that comics that do not make the initial list are encouraged to still come to the show. They may be chosen to be alternate comics for any possible no-shows. Take advantage of this opportunity to network with other comedians.
