Grown Up Comedy Open Mic

Stop by Barrister’s Tavern every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:00pm (sharp!) and catch some laughs at the end of your work day! This FREE show features both veteran and rising stand-up comics as they work out new material and perfect their craft. The show is just an hour, so you can catch our show and still have time to meet up with friends, see a movie, head out for dinner, or whatever else you’re up to on a Tuesday night!

THINGS TO KNOW:
* FREE ADMISSION! (But buy something. Barrister’s lets us perform because they’re in the tavern business! Keep the show going!)

* LOCATION: Barrister’s Tavern, 1535 Montgomery Hwy, Hoover, AL 35216.  Barrister’s is at the corner of Montgomery Hwy + Lorna Road, set back from the street. Look for the green “Barrister’s Tavern” awning sandwiched between EconoLodge & Waffle House.  Take EXIT 252 off I-65, the US-31/Montgomery Hwy exit.

* This is NOT a family friendly show; age 21+. We don’t have language or content restrictions. This is Grown Up Comedy…..for grown ups!  🙂

* NOTE FOR COMICS. There are approximately 10-12 slots (up to 5-minutes each) per week. Sign-ups are 6:45-7pm, choose your slot. Once the show starts, your name goes on a “standby” list, and if we have time we’ll fit you in before the show ends at 8pm. (There’s almost always enough room for everyone!). If you are a travelling/professional comic in town for a gig and would like to work out a longer set, email us – we can usually accommodate you. If you are driving more than 60-minutes, you can email (grownupcomedyal@gmail.com) a request to sign up in advance to secure a slot, or message us via Facebook the day of show. Never tried comedy before? Give it a shot! This is a very friendly and supportive bunch for newbies.

We’re back! Our first dance walk of 2019 will be 2pm on Sunday, March 24th at Railroad Park. We’ll meet on the grass across from the Boxcar Cafe (which is located under the 17th Street Plaza covered area). Just look for the balloons!

What is Dance Walking? It’s a fun fitness craze sweeping the globe. We are dancing and walking our way through Birmingham on a quest for fun, people, music, and FITNESS! Everyone is welcome and all ages are encouraged to join!*

We’ll provide music via megaphones throughout the dance walk, but feel free to bring your own or listen with some ear buds. Who cares as long as you’re moving! We’ll dance walk around the park until we’ve had our fill. Maybe it will end in a dance party in one of the rainbow tunnels!
