Comedy Corner Open Mic Night
Jul 21 @ 3:00 pm – 6:45 pm

This is THE show that got the whole thing started! The popularity and success of this open mic has fresh stand up comics crawling out of the woodwork and is attracting nationally famous talent wanting to test new material. They start at 10pm sharp (meaning by like, 10:05) every single Friday, and it’s 100% free! Come see why they’ve been voted “Best Open Mic” by the Minneapolis comedy scene.

The show typically runs 90-100 minutes and features 20 local and national performers doing short 3-5 minute sets. The show is frequently PACKED, so get there early to get a table! They do have food and alcohol service in the comedy room, and bottomless bowls of peanuts/popcorn!

If you’re interested in performing at the open mic, SWEET! They welcome new comics and try to accommodate everyone brave enough to take the stage. They keep the shows tight, and expect you to respect that. Read the rules when you sign up (it’s the giant thing in the green room titled “THE RULES”) and know they use an algorithm to help make our list to help keep things fair. They get 40-60 comics signing up for 20 slots every week.

This means that while you are new, you will not get up EVERY week when starting out, but the more you come, the better your chances of earning that coveted stage time. To sign up, go to this link on Friday (and only Friday) after Noon.

Bollywood Dance
Jul 27 @ 12:00 am – 1:30 am

Learn Bollywood Dance at Tapestry Folkdance Center!

Bollywood dancing is a stylized freestyle dance form based on moves used in the Indian/Bollywood films. This dance is very energetic yet simple and is primarily modeled on classical and folk dance forms like Bhangra, Raas, Kathak, and Lavani. Also influenced by Western dance styles like hip hop, Bollywood dance is lyrical and attitude/expression oriented. In this class you will learn short choreography of about a minute or two each week (4 dances in a month)!! We will also email a video of the dance and the music, so you can dance anytime you are bored! In short, it’s way too much FUN!

All ages and skill levels are welcome!

$8 general, $6 members, $5 students, free admission to kids 13 and under

Check out Tapestry Folkdance Center for more information.

With four fast-moving rounds and drink money on the line, this is the game show that cannot be avoided!
