Location


So where the hell are we?

Find us in the majestic Seven Corners area of the west bank. To be specific:

1501 Washington Ave. S
Minneapolis, MN 55454

 

We're located in the basement of the Corner Bar. You have to enter through the bar to get to us. We know. It's super confusing. Just pretend you're being super daring and going to a speakeasy or something.

We also validate parking!
(sort of)

Parking in the lot right behind the club costs $4, but the Corner Bar (the place we're inside of) takes $3 off your food or drink tab with the bottom half of the receipt. That's the lot highlighted in GREEN below. Across the street there is another lot that was $4 last time we checked (the one highlighted in yellow). Meters are off after 6, so if you happen to see one - blamo - free parking. There is one hour parking in the south of the place, and in the ramp for the Courtyard Marriott has space as well - so you should be able to find a spot within a block of the place.

This is it; the show that got the whole thing started - still going every single Friday night. We start promptly at 10pm (we usually start letting people in 20-25 minutes ahead of that) with the open mic running about 90 minutes. It's totally free to watch, but you have to be 21+ to get in. We do not take reservations for the open mic, so get here early to make sure you can get a seat. We always run out of seats and frequently have to turn people away.


Looking to perform at the club open mic? KICK ASS! Use the button below to get to the sign up - and if it is your first time make sure you let us know. 99% of the time you will get on if it's your first time through the club with an amazing three minutes for your set. Sign up goes from 12-9:30pm every Friday. Check the list starting at 9:30 to see if you got on.

FAQ


These are the questions we are the most sick of always answering:

Where are you located? 

1501 Washington Ave S.
Minneapolis, MN 55418

Where is your entrance?

Enter through the Corner Bar, then down the stairs under the door marked "Comedy".

Do you serve food?

We do. We have a full food and drink menu. We serve the full menu from the Corner Bar.

Is there service in the room?

Yes! There is a person getting paid to bring you what you ask for during the show. 

How do I get tickets?

You can call/text 612-492-1197 or buy them online. We can do reservations via texting, so you can save the $$ from buying them online. You don't need to worry about the print outs if you order online, we keep everyones name at will call, so just bring an ID.

Are you handicap accessible?

We are not as of yet, we're hoping to put in a chair lift this summer (not the kind for skiing).

How old do you have to be to get in?

Shows at 8pm are 18+, show any later than that are 21+.

I have a baby. Can I bring my baby to a show?

No. We'll allow 16+ with a parent, but no kids. It's weird for everyone involved. 

Can we reserve tickets to the open mic?

No.

How old do you have to be to perform at the Open Mic?

We'll let anyone in to perform, but if you're under 21 you have to leave Immediately after your set. We're also going to put some gigantic M's on  your hands with a sharpie so you don't go getting all clever and try to drink. If you're underage you need to tell the manager when you get to the club, otherwise risk getting banned. 

Are you single?

It depends on who is asking. 

What are you doing this weekend?

Lets just get back to the other questions people might actually care about. 

How much time will I get to perform at the open mic?

Well, it depends a little bit. Your first set you'll almost always get 3 minutes. From there we do our best to reward you for being super funny by giving you more time as you progress as a comic. 

How often will I get on at the open mic if I sign up every week?

The first time you sign up you're going to get time 99% of the time. After that, we try and get as many comics time each month as we can, so about every 2-4 weeks, if you are coming back every week. If you start kicking ass, it might be every other week, or even every week. 

What should I know before my first open mic?

Watch the clock, don't go over your time, if you see a flashing red light your mic is about to get cut, so wrap up. Also - if you sign up, show up. If you sign up and for some reason can't make it - text us at 612-492-1197 to let us know. Being a no show at the open mic is a sure fire way to get your ass banned from performing at it.
