This open mic will always be at least 50% female-identified comics and will feature one or two local headliners.

15 to 20 spots, 3-5 minute sets.

How will you guarantee the 50/50 gender ratio?
- Women who sign up will be confirmed first, and men will be added later to insure the proper dick-joke to PMS-joke ratio.

But what if only 3 women sign up?!
- Then there won't be more than 6 people on the mic, hooray! We can all do extra time and still have a nice, short, perfect pop song of a comedy show. Not a 30+ comics endurance trial of stand-up.

Ok, but then what if 15 women sign up? There WILL be 30 of us!
- Aww, hell no. List is capped at 20 class clowns, so if 15 ladies sign up....well, you do the math.

Is this a Safe Space, or can I say what I want?
- Both! This is a show for grown ups, creatives and free speech. AND... if it seems like you're just angry or trying to be mean or you don't really have a handle on how to talk about certain things, you'll probably get some constructive feedback (an essential part of the free speech equation). Just come and do your best and don't worry.
