“The most unpredictable comedy night in the north. The show where YOU are in control and you never know which future stars you will see!”

The Frog & Bucket’s weekly Open Mic competition, taking place every Monday from 8pm sees up to 15 acts take to the stage and get a maximum of 5 minutes.

The audience is given three jumbo ‘frog’ cards, if all three go up you’re off! If you manage to “Beat the Frog” and stay the full 5 minutes you will enter the clap off at the end of the show to determine the night’s winner.

“I got into comedy completely by accident. When I went along to the Frog and Bucket for an open mic show, I only meant to watch… I’d never been on a stage before and I was shocked by how bright the lights were. I couldn’t see anyone. And I only had one joke… At least four of them chuckled. That first laugh, it’s like losing your virginity – it’s not perfect and you know you’ll get better but you’re completely bitten by the bug.” John Bishop
