I really can't say enough good things about the Real
Comedy Spot. That's why I've made it a point to catch
this weekly Comedy open mic just about every Monday since the first time I went back in June. I'm hooked!
...And now the open mic that I have enjoyed so much has a new venue- The Red Room. My favorite spot to catch a METAL show, now with Comedy?! I'm even more over the moon than I was before, and I'd like to share this gem of the Portland scene with you!
Yeah, I know it's on a Monday night, but what better way to get over a case of the Mondays than to come out and enjoy the most diverse plethora of Comics that this town has to offer? Hosts, Angela Olson and The Real Hyjinx, both Comics themselves, run this open mic in a way that fosters a sense of community like none I've ever seen. It truly is an open mic night, "By Comics, for Comics."
One of the differences between this particular open mic night, and others in town, is that they allow each Comic a whopping 8 minutes of stage time, as opposed to just 3-5. This practice draws out some of Portland's best veteran Comics, as well as burgeoning talent, and makes for a thoroughly enjoyable show for the audience. (Thinking about getting into performing Comedy? This is a very supportive environment for getting some stage time in! Message me if you'd like details on how to do that.)
Here's the 411 on the Red Room:
-Full menu and full bar
-Ample parking in rear of building
-21 and over only
So, I think that about sums it up! Come out and laugh with us...On a Monday!
