First Friday Open Mic: A New Comedy Open Mic In The Salem/Keizer Area Is Here All Summer

Check out the newest comedy open mic in the Salem/Keizer’s area! And this is PNW Comedy’s first event with our new branding: The Willamette Valley Comedy Club @ KHT. First Fridays are here all summer long, so take a peek at the first one on June 4th. If you’d like on the mic that just happens to be in a really cool spot for comedy, email stating that you’re interested in performing by 9 am on 6/4. The sooner you email, the Copy of pnw comedy presents (1)more likely you are to grab a spot (we’re already filling up for this month!). Set times are dependant on the total number of people that sign up and show up.

A small number of walk-up spots will be available for every open mic this summer. These day-of spots are available for sign-ups starting 30 minutes before the show.

Attending the First Friday Open Mic is free with advance online reservation, though, if you have a good time or what to support us putting on more open mics like this, we do have a Pay What You’d Like/tip jar available. And for those that are more into spur-of-the-moment activities, day-of walk-up General Admission tickets cost just $5 at the door. There is no cost for comedians/performers to attend, though they are encouraged to send a message to to let the producer(s) and host know to save a spot in the theater for them.

The June 4th start time is at 9:30 PM, with the doors opening and seating beginning at 9 PM. Concessions consisting of water and a small variety of candy will be available for purchase. Some content may not be suitable for everyone, so this event is for those aged 18 and up.
