All For Laughs: Bengaluru Here 's A Comedy Open Mic For Each Day

The city has more than one every week, but I’ve decided to pen down the go-to list to make it easy for you to pick from | BINGE

An open mic is a space where upcoming comics or aspirants of the art can come try their luck in the spotlight. It’s essential to nurture the grassroots of any performance arts and comedy open mics do just that for stand-up comedians. Some of these venues are curated open mics too.


If you are looking to make evening plans that wash your worries away for a few hours, I would recommend a comedy open mic. When compared to a comedy show, an open mic is lighter on the ear, cheaper to book and just overall a fun experience. The city has more than one every week, but I’ve decided to pen down the go-to list to make it easy for you to pick from.

 

MONDAY: Zostel, Indiranagar

Monday evenings at Zostel, the backpacker hostel franchise, hosts the perfect laughter riot to wash off your Monday blues. The open mic held at the friendly game room is open to both outsiders and guests of the hostels. The mix-n-match of national cultures and personalities of the audiences allows the comics to thrive and turn this into the ultimate laughter spot on Monday evenings.

Ticket: INR 100/-

Tuesday: Bistro Claytopia, Koramangala

One of the early venues for standup in Bengaluru, Claytopia is a revered spot for the comedians of the city. Uniquely themed, Claytopia allows you buy clay items and sit there and paint them...all while you enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee. The venue always attracts an active crowd that is hunting for more than "Netflix and Chill". The open mic held in the indoor section of the room presents some of the most seasoned comedians in the city. When you go here, you must try anything off the burger menu. Just be sure to eat between comedians, and not during. I learned this from experience.

Ticket: RSVP on EventsHigh

 

Wednesday: Urban Solace Cafe, Ulsoor

India’s longest-running comedy open mic, (yes! Indias.) is the open mic evening at Urban Solace. The weekly Wednesday laughter ritual has been going on for 8 years.

This well-located space has always been a promoter of arts and performance and is the city’s favorite hangout spot for all members of the creative industry in Bengaluru. The Spicy Basil Chicken and their curated wines are perfect for a comedy night.
