I participated in The Actor’s Workshop Monthly Open Mic and it was pretty great. The people were nice. The people were supportive. The people supplied the audience with cheese, grapes and crackers—which clearly makes it the most enjoyable open mic I’ve ever been to. Not only all that, but the organization is something that you should check out. As you might have guessed they are an acting company, but they also organize volunteer groups for the needy and other such good-karma inducing things.
The video below, which one kind audience member taped, is a snippet of my performance. There was also a photographer present. Those photos are now underneath the video. Could an open mic get any more legit?
