(Updated 19 September, 2022)
Practice is essential to a stand-up comedy career. Sure, the Hard Knock Knocks stand-up comedy course will allow you to hit the ground running, but even we acknowledge that it’s still no substitute for getting up on stage, trialling your material, and bombing – often.

Thanks Karin. I’ve made the update.
Love how Karen spelled her name with an i to try get away with looking less of a Karen.
Hey Magic Mic is no longer performing at Monkey Magic.
Any of these opening up again soon? <3
Best to check with each one-by-one.
COVID-19 has knocked out quite a few open mic rooms for now. We’ll be updating this page as soon as we learn of rooms returning, or new ones opening.
