Open mics give start-up stand ups a chance at laughs
If you are a comic at any level, from those that have been on professional tours to those that have annoyed their girlfriends and showerheads with the same jokes for three months, heads up.
Giggles Grill, attached to The Comedy Catch at 3224 Brainerd Rd., has open mic comedy shows every other Saturday night. The next show is this Saturday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m.
Comedian Rodney Alan Wiggins is currently in charge of the open mic nights. Early this month, he opened for former “SNL” cast member Rob Schneider at The Comedy Catch.
Arrive between 7:-7:30 p.m. to reserve a spot in the line-up. Each comedian is given approximately five minutes of stage time and they can enjoy the rest of the show for free. If you prefer to sit in the audience and laugh, there is a $2 cash charge for the show.
There is also a two-drink minimum, but be aware of the 15 percent gratuity surcharge on all tabs before you order that sixth rum and coke.
The Comedy Catch and Giggles Grill is moving downtown in April, so there will only be a few more open mics at this location.
