Welcome to Comedy Write Now.

First things first, signup will be from 8 PM to 10:30PM. You will put your name on a slip of paper and throw it in the box of names. The box will be pulled promptly at 10:30.

At 10:30 PM I will announce what we will be writing on. There are a whole bunch of different ideas I have for this but the initial night will just be a random selection of Apples to Apples subject cards. After that we will have 10 minutes to write a 3 minute set inspired by the subjects on the cards. There are no real rules here except it shouldn't be material you have already worked on somewhere else since that defeats the purpose of the exercise.

After 10 minutes we will all stop writing and I will do my set so that no one else has to go first. Then I will draw the names of the first 5 performers who will do sets. I will continue to draw names until the venue forces me to quit. If you don't get selected one night you will be the next time. Last time over 40 people signed up so there was no way I could get to all of them.

What the purpose of this is to force people who are having a hard time writing material to actually do so under pressure. Also, no one is expecting fucking miracles so the bar here is pretty low. Don't be embarrassed about the quality of what you have written. It's a pretty good bet no one else has written any magical stuff either.

However, I am not expecting to do any kind of critique of what is performed. If you want that you should go to Critical Comedy which does that very well. If you do want some sort of feedback I suggest asking the other people there after the mic is over.

That's pretty much it. I would like it if the people doing this mic would stick around and watch everyone else so we can all share in the struggle together.

If this sounds like a good time to you congratulations, you can come every week.
If this doesn't sound like a good time to you congratulations, you never have to come.

That's pretty much it. Feel free to ask questions about the mic or anything else in the comments below.
