The Hottest Stand-Up Comedy Happens Every Friday Night at The Beast! March 25, 2014

East Village, Manhattan
The Hottest Stand-Up Comedy Happens Every Friday Night at The Beast!, Manhattan, New York

After a long week, you’ve probably got a lot on your mind. Your job is boring, your love life is a mess, and your family is driving you crazy. Why not turn your personal frustrations into golden stand-up comedy?

At 7:00 p.m., the Hot Chicks Room at the Upright Citizens Brigade East comes alive with The Friday Night Hot Chicks Open Mic. The Hot Chicks Room doubles as the Beast’s bar and waiting area, which means that anyone waiting for a show in the main theater is subject to rip-roaring stand-up comedy from a wide range of performers.

Here’s how the open mic works:

At 6:45 p.m., the jar comes out, and performers who want to take the stage drop their name in. Registration ends ten minutes later. At 7:00 p.m. sharp, the host of the Hot Chicks Open Mic draws 16 names at random. If your name is drawn, you get to decide when you perform in the lineup. This is bad news if your name is drawn last, but there’s good news: if this happens to you, you automatically get to perform next week.

The Friday Night Hot Chicks Open Mic is free! There are no tickets to the event. Just bring your ability to laugh, and – if you’re performing – your most hilarious stories. While you’re watching the show, make sure to grab a few drinks from the bar in the back of the room, where the lovely bartenders are serving delicious craft beer and wine from all around the Northeast!

Whether you stick around for more comedy or stumble elsewhere in the East Village, the Hot Chicks Open Mic is a great way to start your Friday night. Great sketch and improv comedy shows happen all weekend and into the work week at the Upright Citizens Brigade East. If you’re looking to laugh, visit the comedy theater online for their full schedule. Don’t forget to brag about your visit to your friends by mentioning @UCBTheatreEast on Twitter!
