Open Mic Comedy Rooms in Melbourne

Open mic comedy rooms in Melbourne have returned. However, not all rooms are ‘open mic’. Many are curated, meaning you need to have your name ‘on the bill’ before getting up. So reach out (probably via Facebook) before popping down to the following comedy rooms.

Be patient. The open mic rooms are slowly opening up, although most are still curated, except The Rubber Chicken, which you can get up on the night.

Also, don’t be afraid to organise your own open mic room. All it takes is grunt work, a generous venue operator and a Facebook post and you’ll have a packed room full of new comedians who will love you for it.

  1. Hi,

    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?

      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

  5. Hi. How can I please put a call out to the amateur comedians of Melbourne to see if anyone is interested in a 15 minute gig for a private party on Saturday 23rd of November?

  7. Hi. I am trying to organise for my father in law ‘Papa’ to take part in an open Mic Night! All his life people have told Papa he should be a stand up comedian – guess that would happen quite often but he seriously does have a gift. He is such a character and if you want a rough idea what he looks like just picture Frank Zappa straight out of the 60’s but a little more grey in his hair. How am I able to organise something for him? He is quite the procrastinator and is at loose ends in his life yet still has so much to achieve at 62 years of age. I live in Palm Beach Gold Coast but he lives in Belgrave in the Hills, but my husband and I would certainly fly down for the experience. Really unsure where to start with this. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks…. any advice would be great.
