On the first Tuesday of every month, The ALTdot Comedy Lounge holds an OPEN MIC NIGHT. There are 12 open mic spots available, at 5 minutes apiece; 7-minute spots are given to those comics who bring five or more audience members. Any comic is welcome to sign up as long as you bring some people with you. The shows also feature a headlining act and a host. One comic from each OPEN MIC NIGHT is awarded a spot at the following Monday's ALTdot Comedy Lounge.
