With performances in major cities like Atlanta, New York, LA, Chicago, and more under his belt, as well as gracing the stages of renowned comedy clubs like The Broadway and The Greenwich Village Comedy Club, Oakes is a true professional who knows how to work for a crowd. But the Wednesday Night Open Mic is about more than just Oakes' headlining act - it's a celebration of the diverse voices and talents found throughout the D.C. community. For two hours, attendees can expect to be moved and entertained by a vast array of spoken word performers, rookie open mic-ers trying their hand at the craft, talented musicians, and a different host each week keeping the energy high. It's a true variety show that offers something for everyone, whether you're a comedy diehard or just looking for an engaging night out experiencing D.C.'s vibrant arts scene. With a packed house and an atmosphere buzzing with anticipation for the unexpected, the Wednesday Night Open Mic is an event that demands to be experienced live and in person. Tickets are incredibly affordable at just $5 online or $8 at the door, making this a no-brainer event to attend for an evening of laughs, creative expression, and likely a few thought-provoking moments as well.
