Ever been to an open mic night and seen the same sort of performer get up... over and over again?
Yeah, us too.

Because being an ‘open’ mic night doesn’t necessarily make it an accessible mic night. It doesn’t necessarily make it a funny mic night, either. And we want to change that.

At Not An Open Mic Night, you will see a wide variety of comedy from a diverse range of comedians; developed at Theatre in the Mill’s Women’s Comedy Workshop.

Ranging from stand-up, to improvisation, to monologues, to drag. We guarantee you a programme that is experimental, courageous and - most importantly - funny. Like, eye-wateringly, side-splittingly, maybe pack a spare pair of pants funny.

Great comedy requires a great community. If you’d like to develop your funny in a safe and supportive environment, you might like the Women’s Comedy Workshop. 

The dates of the next set of workshops are:

Workshop 1 - Saturday 20 October, 1.30-4.30pm

Workshop 2 - Saturday 3 November, 1.30-4.30pm

Workshop 3 - Saturday 17 November, 1.30-4.30pm
