Grandma's Basement Thursday Open Mic

Grandma's Basement is not actually a basement, but a Wednesday through Sunday comedy venue hidden within the Fenway Howard Johnson Hotel (1271 Boylston St., Boston). Thursday is our award-winning open mic (our parents are proud), free to the public, beginning at 8PM and often running until 1AM. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday we host a variety of shows, featuring young and old, rookie and veteran, music, rants, movie monologues, characters, sketch, and all other sorts of non-sense of non-sense. We have more than affordable drinks and delightful Chinese food. We're doing our best to bring something fun and intriguingly original to Boston comedy, and offering other comics a chance to do the same.
