We love comedy. We love Cincinnati.

This city has low key one of the best comedy scenes in the country. There are a lot of great opportunities to go out and enjoy original comedy – no streaming necessary. We’re coming to you live almost every night of the week right here in the Queen City. Support both seasoned comics testing out their new material and struggling newbies at an open mic (or even give it a try yourself). Come to a showcase to see the best comics in the city run their tried and true material in an intimate setting – you might even see a big name drop in to do a set as they pass through town.

Shows may get cancelled last minute and are not reflected on this site. Verify on the Facebook group before driving out.

This Calendar should be up-to-date, but go ahead and read the previous statement one more time. If you run a show in town that you would like included on this website, reach out in the Facebook group.

Open Mics

Visit the Facebook group to make sure the mic is happening before you drive all the way to the venue. The Calendar may be of use of you, too. Whether you’re looking to take your first shot at comedy or just want to watch newbies and seasoned comics testing out their new material – there’s an open mic going on to satisfy those urges.
