Comedy Night At Ferus

Comedians will get 3-5 minutes of time depending on the amount of people signed up. There will be a bucket that the audience can throw their name into for a chance to do a spot as well if time permits.
Interested in participating? Email winters902@gmail.com
Our open mic is for both amateur talent, and visiting national comedians to work on their material (…or to help rebuild their confidence)! You will see people doing jokes for the first time, expanding on current jokes, and some times just plain eating it… which is pretty awesome! Regardless, Ferus supports comedy as an Art Form, and as an art form, watch us explore, expand, die, laugh, and strike gold!

Cahaba Comedy Night

Join us in the Barrel Room for the Cahaba Comedy Night hosted by Matt Winters! This comedy night will feature multiple local comedians plus we’ll have Taco Morro Loco from 7 – 9.
Would you like to have your chance at the mic? Just follow @winters902 on Instagram and send him a message to sign up!
