The idea behind Comedy Gumbeaux’s open mic is the get comics ready for their next step. There is a showcase at the beginning of the show, where comics get the opportunity to host, open, feature, and headline. The host gets 7 minutes, of which 5 minutes can be done up front, with 1 minute between the opener and the feature or all 7 minutes up front. The opener gets 7 minutes, feature 10 minutes and the headliner gets 15 minutes.
After the showcase is over, the open mic starts, with comics start with 7 minutes, then 5 minutes and finally three minutes.
Comics will be bumped for Celebrities, Veterans, and Out-Of-Town Guests.
