  • Yeah, Comedy! A Stand-up Comedy Open Mic presented by Lafayette Comedy at The Jefferson St. PubLafayette Comedy presents "Yeah, Comedy!"NEW DATE: NOW ON WEDNESDAYS!Each week experienced and amateur comedians take the stage to showcase new and old material with up to 5 minutes of stage time.Location: Jefferson St. Pub. 500 Jefferson St. Lafayette, LA 70501Cost: FREE!Hosted by Maggie Shipley and J.P. Leonard.The show kicks up at 8:00 p.m. Interested performers should sign-up with Maggie or J.P. by 7:45 p.m.DOWNTOWN PARKING DETAILS:-Metered spaces are currently free after 5:00 p.m.-Parking Garage: 121 East Vermilion StreetSo you want to be a comedian? Read these tips to help guide you through your first time on stage.1. DON'T RUN THE LIGHT!Generally, each open-mic performer gets 4 to 5 minutes of stage time. When you have 1 minute left, the host will signal you with a light (usually their cell phone light). This means you have 1 minute left. Best practice is to not "run the light" and go past that mark. It throws the pacing of the show-off and is just rude to other performers. When you see the light, acknowledge it with a thumbs up or a nod.2. Know Your MaterialKnow what you will do before you go on stage. Sure, all these pros look like they are just ranting, and some are, but they have many years of experience and generally get on stage with a basic idea of where they are going. Practice your material before you get on stage. Bring notes. Just know what you will do.3. Watch the ShowWatching comedy is just as important as doing it. You get to see how comedians carry themselves on stage and what crowds like and don't like. Applaud. Listen. And don't talk.4. Don’t insult the crowdThere is a difference between crowd work and just being an ass. If you insult the crowd by going over the line, you will be warned. If it continues, you may not be allowed back. We have to answer to venue managers and owners. If it takes away their business it does not look well for us.5. Move the Mic StandMoving it 2-3 feet out of the way makes you look better and removes a distraction. If you choose to leave the mic in the stand, go for it.6. Hold the Mic CorrectlyDon't cup your hand around the mic top. You are not in the Wu-Tang, so no need for that. We want the crowd to hear you clearly, and also, when you cup the mic, it makes trouble for the sound guy.7. Record YourselfSet your phone on the stool and record your set. Listen. Edit. Repeat. It is the best way to determine what works and what doesn't. You don’t need a video crew. Just listen to your set.8. Don't Steal or Do Street JokesDon't steal from comedians. There is no cover band in comedy. Do original material. Don't do bits you found online. Avoid any jokes your Uncle Larry told you. If you can find it online, don't do it.9.
