This may be a little too “inside baseball” for the general comedy fan. As part of our Death Mic 2017 open mic competition, we reached out to Erin Naylor, manager at Helium Comedy’s St. Louis club. She gave us insight into how independent open mics can work to help comics develop material that’s ready for a comedy club.
So if you’re a comic out there on the grind, take note. And if you’re a comedy fan, this gives you some idea of what you can expect at a local independent open mic, vs. the more organized club open mic.
