Put your name on a piece of paper and pray to the gods it will rain down into the hands of either Jacob Lie or Stu Melton. Or don’t…your chances of getting called up are about the same either way (100% chance!). This is the open mic you need no matter what it’s like outside. Come in and forget the sunshine. No windows. No fresh air. Just the way we like it!

The Kaleidoscope is an experiment where friends and strangers get together and perform. Every week, four improvisers will form teams with whom they have never performed to create teams that have never existed and will never exist again. Like a kaleidoscope: every time you look you will see something different. Hosted by Tao Yang

Andy Sandford hosts a secret lineup of some of the funniest standups that NYC has to offer. All doing their newest, rawest, most untested material. Witness the birth of comedy gold, or the death of a once promising premise. Both will likely happen, and that’s the beauty of the process. It’s all good, because the comedians are all good.

Fish n Bits

Enjoy some British delicacies like dry humour, absurd surrealism and silly accents as comics get two and a half minutes of stage time. The bucket is always open so late comers are welcome. This mic is also pro shorts on stage when the weather is nice enough. It is also the world’s first and only cryptocurrency themed comedy night, where host Dominic Fogarty provides a weekly update of crypto prices in real time

‘Sup is an open mic that showcases female, queer, and gender non-conforming voices. It is an experimental space for people to try new things and express themselves.

It’s fun & chill. Come try stuff.

No one likes you…….GOOD!
       Welcome to The Dump!: A Goddamn Storytelling Show!
        This is where Jake Hart(RISK!; Nights of Our Lives) hosts NYC’s funniest storytellers & YOU! Get 8 MINUTES of stage time to tell any ONE true story ya’ll want.  No themes, no judgments.  Just a room full of shitty people scrambling for a reason to live.

Most comics in this city came here from somewhere else to chase a dream or run from something. Either way, we’re all New Yorkers now. But where we’re from definitely shapes our style, our attitude and our life. We’re all a little bit different, but the same because we just wanna make people laugh. This monthly showcase picks comics from one particular town and lets them stretch their legs doing a longer set so we can soak up more of their hometown flavor. Hosted by Trey Galyon, who isn’t really from anywhere. He’s lived in Boston, Lexington, Orlando, Philly and Austin. He’s running from alot of somethings but bringing some of the best talent in NYC to The Creek and Cave the fourth Tuesday of the month at 10pm! Oh, and it’s always free!
