New Rules for Open Mic

Hey Philadelphia, we've been listening. We wanted to change Open Mic so it's more accessible to EVERYONE! 

Starting March 5, 2014, we are opening up sign-ups online at www.heliumcomedy.com for a full 24-hours. We will start at NOON the Wednesday after Open Mic and end at NOON the next day.

If you did not get on the list (you will be notified by email either way), you will have a second chance to sign up in-person at Helium Comedy Club beginning at 6 p.m. and ending at 7 p.m. the actual day of Open Mic. The final list will be posted at 7:30 p.m. and will be drawn by random lottery with priority given to the first people to sign up that evening.

Please note that you will not be able to sign up in person earlier than 6 p.m. Take advantage of this opportunity before the show to network with other comedians and enjoy some of our happy hour specials including $4 beers.

Questions regarding this can be directed to openmic@heliumcomedy.com



Happy Birthday Promotion
