The Boiler Room hosts the longest-running open mic
in the Pacific Northwest. Our show features up to and
sometimes morethan 20 comedians in 2 hours.
The pace is fast, the sets are tight and the
comics are unpredictable.

3rd Floor Sketch comedian, Portland Center Stage veteran,
and stand-up institution, Kevin-Michael Moore hosts,
bringing his own brand of musical, character-driven comedy
to the show.  Regular guests of the mic include local favorites,
touring features, and the occasional first-timer.  
The show runs from 9 - 11pm,
followed by karaoke until close.

For Audience members:
We do not reserve tables for open mic night.
This is an adult-oriented show, blue material is common;
this is not a show for the easily offended.  
Seating is limited so please arrive early.

For Comics:
This is a comedy mic.  You’ve been warned poets/singer/songwriters.
At 3 minutes you get a light, at 4 minutes we play you off,
at 4:05 you may not be invited back.
Be respectful of othercomedians and obey the light.
We don’t ask you to censor your routine.  Anything goes.
