Double the Funny

Comedy on Tap, the what-used-to-be-only Wednesday weekly standup open mic at Hidden House, sounds the trumpets for its empire by adding every Thursday to its upcoming calendar, kicking off with an “All New Material Show." (New jokes are the only requirement for the HH regulars, which includes Cristin Davis, Jonathan Glasser, Jared Blake, Greg Tidrow, Ronnie D, Myke Dehu, Kirk Buckhout, and Steve Maxwell.)

New Times recently drank with Buckhout and Maxwell, and received plenty an earful about stage etiquette. Don’t fellate the microphone. Don’t run the light. Stay original and write constantly. Maxwell also shared his dogmatic opinions on the scene. “What the shittier shows have in common is they don’t respect the audience,” says Maxwell, who adds that though he is brutally opinionated with the others during writing sessions, it eventually pays off on stage.

Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., 2008
