Stand-Up Comedy is one of the hardest talents under the entertainment umbrella. Come and support amateurs and professionals alike as they test out new material to better their act at our comedy open mic at The Orlando Improv inside the Fat Fish Blues bar.
Want to try stand-up yourself? Feel free to sign up and give it a try. Anyone can get on our Fat Fish Blues stage during the open mic night.
In addition to the stand-up comedy open mic, we also offer a FREE writing workshop beforehand that we call “Blank Page”. Everyone who shows up will start off with a blank piece of paper and will write something they’ve never written before.
We also have a professional show going on in the main room. (Different every week)

🎤Sign-up begins at 7pm
🎤We will get up as many people as possible, but open mic needs to end at the same time as the main room. This is beyond the control of the host but is in the hands of club managers.
🎤If you put your name on the list but you didn’t get a chance to perform you will be placed on the bump list for the following week.
🎤If you are on the bump list and you show up the following week you still must arrive at 7:00pm for check in.
🎤If you do not show up for 7:00pm check in your name will be omitted from the list and you will have to sign up again.
🎤You must physically be present to put your name on the list. You cannot sign up a friend if they are not there.
🎤The managers and host reserve the right to put up someone even if their name is not on the list.
🎤Set lengths will be determined at the time of the show. Usually between 3 – 5 minutes.
🎤Comedians can’t sign up two weeks in a row. You can perform one week, then come back the following week to put your name on the list again.
🎤If the host calls your name and you’re not in the room and you miss your spot, your name will be omitted until the following week.
🎤If you’re on the bump list and can’t make it, you can NOT push it to the following week. You’ll have to come back and put your name on the list again.
These rules are in place to make sure everyone gets a fair chance at performing at The Orlando Improv Open Mic.
Thanks, and stay funny!
