Flat12 Bierwerks

Once a month on a very special Friday, Rocketship Comedy holds a show downtown at Flat12 Bierwerks. All year round, audience members can come early and grab a hoagie from Hoagies & Hops, a pint from the taproom, and a seat to watch the show. Nationally recognized comedians like Matt Braunger, Sean Patton, Geoff Tate, Stewart Huff, and Laura Sanders have all headlined past shows at Flat12. 

Tickets for Flat12 can be pre-ordered at a discount at Eventbrite. If there are any left, they can be purchased at the door for full price.

Shoefly Public House

Every Monday we produce The Monday Show stand up open mic over at the Shoefly Public House basement. This is the perfect place to try stand up for the first time, or just to see what an open mic is like in the city. The list is always a combination of new talent and seasoned veterans, and you never know when a headliner like Al Jackson or Megan Gailey is going to drop in to close the show.

Interested in performing? Arrive prior to 7:30 PM to sign up. Spots fill up very quickly. There's no cover charge, and the comedian who brings the most audience members gets a gift certificate to Shoefly Public House.
