On Thursday nights, January 9 through April 2, join us at Trek Brewing for an Open Mic comedy competition. Three winners each week will advance to a monthly battle round. These monthly battle rounds will determine who secures each of the ten spots on the Weathervane stage for the final Stand Up Showdown on April 18 where they will compete for bragging rights and a $500 cash Grand Prize.
WHERE: Trek Brewing 1486 Granville Rd. Newark, OH 43055
WHEN: 7 – 9PM Thursdays, January 9 – April 2. Sign-ups begin at 6:45, and are on a first-come first-serve basis.
WHO: All comics welcome. Each evening will be hosted by Nick “Pyro” Sensabaugh. Weekly rounds will be judged by our audience. Monthly Battle Rounds and the Final Stand Up Showdown will feature guest judges.
Please note: While Trek Brewing is a family-friendly brewery and audience members and comics of all ages are welcome and encouraged, there may be content or language during the course of each stand-up act that isn’t appropriate for all ages.
WHAT: All comedic styles are welcome: parody, stand-up, sketch comedy, etc. Each comic will receive a 5-minute slot in our weekly Stand Up rounds.
HOW: To be fair to all comics, sign-ups must be in person, begin at 6:45 each Thursday, and are on a first come, first served basis.
WHY: Because laughter IS the best medicine. Plus, Thursdays are also Trek Together nights at Trek Brewing, with $1.00 of each beer purchased donated to a local charitable organization. Laughter, beer and helping others!
COST: Weekly rounds are FREE! There is a $5.00 cover charge for our Monthly Battles (the last Thursday of each month).
