The Lakely Presents: Clear Water Comedy Open Mic Night!

Tuesday May. 24th, 2022 | 8:30-11pm

Open Mic Night is coming to The Lakely Stage!

Join us each week on Tuesday nights as we feature Clear Water Comedy Open Mic Night with a plethora of entertainment and experiences, from musicians and comedians to improv and spoken word — anything goes, and you never know what (or who!) you might see or hear! Both established and emerging artists in the Chippewa Valley are encouraged to perform!

Each week, a different artist will host the evening, and lead off the program with 20-30 minutes of their own work. Following this performance, open mic begins. Whether it is music, comedy, sketch, live readings, poetry, acting, improv- all are welcome!


Emily Watkins
