Sydney has a fairly healthy open mic scene these days, with several popular weeklies where you can sign up on the night – rather than hustle the promoter to get your foot in the door. Here are four we recommend. 

Looking for a post-show drink? Sydney's best bars will keep you going, and grab a late night snack and one of our faves.

Comedy, Stand Up

THURSDAYS: Tudor Comedy
