Practice is essential to a stand-up comedy career. Sure, the School of Hard Knock Knocks stand-up comedy course will allow you to hit the ground running, but even we acknowledge that it’s still no substitute for getting up on stage, trialling your material, and bombing – often. Here’s a regularly updated list of open mic comedy rooms in Melbourne. If you know of others, or can recommend an update, please contact us.

    Just wondering whether I can perform stand up at Club Volataire on Friday night this week? I am up from Townsville, how long can the sets last?

    • Team SHKK says:

      G’day Danny,
      We don’t manage the rooms – we just keep this list up to date. Best for you to contact Voltaire directly.

      But, and there’s a huge BUT, the comedy festival has just begun, which means all the open mic rooms are busy with shows.

      Check out the comedy festival website for shows to see while you’re in town: https://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2018
