Stand Up for Mondays

All-ages Comedy Open Mic
Have material you want to work out AND get feedback on? Almost every branch in the Boston Public Library has an auditorium with a stage. Why not use it? Everyone gets 4-6 minutes depending on the turnout. Then get immediate feedback (if you want it) from the group after your set. It’s great for comics of all levels who are working out their first set or their fiftieth. It’s free, early and welcomes all ages. This workshop is led by Maya May (Boston Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival) Show and go – or email her to get on the list.
