New Acts Welcome

New acts are always welcome, but please get in touch well in advance of your intended performance date!

Emma Shannon

It’s best to email below with New Act/Open Mic in the subject line.


New acts are welcome but must request a 7 minute open spot well in advance. The new acts compete on the open mic for the legendary The Lucky Duck Award on Tuesday nights [Every Tuesday night since 1996!]

To win the coveted Lucky Duck, the audience vote for the number one act at the end of the night. Whichever act gets the loudest cheer and applause, wins the Lucky Duck judged by the MC/producer.

Thursday nights while staging the more experienced acts and the best Lucky Duck winners, sometimes includes a couple of open spots to take the overload from Tuesdays while also leaving space for international open mic acts passing through.


Remember only request a spot when you’re sure you are ready, available and able to fulfil.

Failure to show up can lead to a 6 month ban and in some cases a ban forever.

While we’re not prudes, we do not tolerate undesirable sexual content, racist content or humour to offend  or just shock.

Material must have a funny logic behind it and not a personal account of your sexual history that no one wants to know, otherwise you’re in the wrong club!
