Matt Zerilli: “We are pretty lucky to have such a supportive and hilarious comedy scene around here. We are always looking for ways to give back to this community that has been so supportive and accepting of us. These Open Mics have always been, and will always be, free to the public but, be sure to bring a few bucks to donate to your favorite charity and get ready to laugh!”
