Want to be a Comedian?


Do you want to be a comedian, or even just give it a try?

One Mic Stand at Rhino Room gives you the chance!

Adelaide Comedy is looking for the next generation of Funny People to join the hilarious list of excellent comics who have come out of Adelaide Comedy. It doesn’t matter if you are a woman or a man, your race colour or creed as long as you can make an audience laugh with your own material we are looking for you.  Lehmo, Justin Hamilton, Mickey D, Hannah Gadsby, Amos Gill, Demi Lardner, Georgie Carroll, Jason Chong, Lori Bell, Bec Hill, Michael Bowley and countless others have come out of the Adelaide Comedy scene. Could the next one be You?

Each Monday One Mic gives new performers the chance to perform in one of Australia’s most prestigious comedy venues, alongside other up-and-coming acts as well as some established comedians having a bit of fun.  Adelaide Comedy watches the Open Mic’s closely for our next big thing.  If you are doing well on Monday nights you’ll get gigs through out the Adelaide Comedy scene.

Established in 2011, we have already had some brilliant and seriously funny acts discovered through One Mic, and in 2013 FOUR out of eight Raw Comedy state finalists were One-Mic crew!

There are only two guidelines;

  1. Each act must bring 3 paying guests to get on stage that night
  1. Each act is strictly limited to 5-minutes

The ‘paying guests’ rule is an initiative to ensure that each week there will be a friendly, open audience ready to laugh along and support the acts.

If it’s your first time and you would rather your friends didn’t see you, or if they can’t make it on the night, DON’T WORRY! Simply message Michael Bowley through the One Mic Stand Facebook page to arrange your spot on the night.

Doors open @ 7:30pm, show starts @ 8pm. Tickets are just $10 at the door.

Weekly DRINK SPECIALS and GIVEAWAYS to make your Thursday’s extra funny.

PLUS every week one outstanding comic will be chosen to receive a FREE PASS to get on stage the following week without bringing any guests!
