The well kept bar, the clean tables, the contemporary leather furniture, the spotless floor, the professional bar staff… none of these are harbingers of what’s about to go down on stage…
Every Tuesday night at 8pm, the best kept secret in Utah’s comedy scene whirs into action. Comedy Roadkill at The Complex hosts a comedy show that is unlike anything else in Salt Lake City. Every week, a different outstanding local comic hosts the show, featuring 4 showcase comedians. Open mic sets are interspersed throughout the show, moving the show along at a fun pace.
Stand up comedy is a raw human experience. As an audience member, laughing is a visceral, self induced medicine. Taking the stage is a display of vulnerability, a moment when the subconscious emerges into public view, for better or for worse. I’ve been participating in this show for the last 8 months, and I still feel the sense of buckling my seatbelt on a roller coaster as each show starts up.
Anything can happen.
Comedy Roadkill happens every Tuesday at 8pm, admission is free. This is a 21+ club with a full service bar. Those wishing to do a comedy set should arrive at 7:30 to get on the list. The open mic format allows anyone to give it a shot. Come down, bring some friends, try your hand at comedy!
