Sign up to perform at a DCVariety Open Mic night!


With the closing of the Palace, we have been diligently scouting new venues to support a Variety open mic.  Until we find a space that is a perfect fit, the regular show is on hold.

But feel free to fill out the sign-up form and we will send out an email as soon as it’s up and running!

Thank you for your support!


Hey DC! You’ve got some talent! DCVariety presents the DC’s ONLY variety open mic. Only at the Red Palace! Step right up to see local talent as they show off with Music! Sideshow! Juggling! Clowning! Dance! Music! & Interpretive Yak Milking! We have it all!

We love variety, and to that end, the first priority for spots goes to the acts that don’t have other open mics in the area.  DC has many music and comedy open mics, but only one place for circus and vaudeville folks to work their chops!

Wanna show us what you got? Let us know ahead of time that you are coming to make sure you get a spot!

The December 13th show is almost full, but still sign up in case we have a cancellation.  We are also collecting names for the next show too (date to be announced)!
