press release: The format for The Big Deuce Open Mic is not like your normal open mic. We usually have around 50 comics that sign up to try and perform from here in Madison and the surrounding areas like Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis. We only put on 20-25 comics per show. That being said, you are not guaranteed to perform just for signing up. To increase your chances of performing we suggest that you bring friends along to add to the crowd. Each comedian will get 3-5 minutes to perform.
