In its running and organisation One Mic Stand-up is fairly typical of Auckland open mic comedy nights:
- We pre-book comedians. This is done through our Facebook group.
- The call for a cast is normally posted 6 days before show time.
We differ from other open mics in:
- We allow comedians to specify their own set length, within reason.
- We allow sign-ups from the floor, time permitting.
Code of Conduct:
We have not developed our own code of conduct as we believe that there should be a single code of conduct used by all comedy shows in New Zealand. The New Zealand Comedy Guild Incorporated has developed a code that we fully endorse. It can be found here (pdf).
We expect everyone involved with our shows, including ourselves, to abide by this code.
