Stand-Up Comedy

Open Mic – 3rd Fridays

Reno Improv provides a positive, supportive environment for people to discover, develop and share their unique comedic voice. We host a monthly open mic every third Friday of the month where anyone can practice new material or polish previously crafted stand-up routines. Entry: $5 at the door.

How to Sign Up to Perform:

We start accepting open mic signups the first day of the month at 8 a.m. via email ( There are 12 spots available each month. Six spots will be reserved for people who have not performed stand-up at Reno Improv before. If you’re new to our stage, please be sure to sign up during the first week of the month. Afterward, spots will be given to anyone who reaches out, in order of request. (If interest is high, however, you may not be allowed to perform two months in a row.) Stand-up sets are five minutes long.
