Comedy Open Mic
New Joke Night
Vienna's longest-running English comedy open mic! A fun mix of professionals working on new jokes and up-and-comers honing their craft! Unlike most art forms, comedy can only be practiced and perfected in front of an audience. That's the beauty of the open mic--it's a place for comedians to develop new material with audience feedback to know if their new joke is an instant classic or a complete dud.
Every new joke has to start somewhere, and that's what the open mic is for! Vienna's English comedy scene has come a long way since 2016, and we want to see it keep growing. That's why we open NEW JOKE NIGHT up to the public to give Austria's comedians a chance to work on new material as they move toward the next step of their careers!
