In its running and organisation Live Streamed Comedy is fairly typical of Auckland open mic comedy nights:
- We pre-book comedians. This is done through our Facebook group.
- The call for a cast is normally posted the day after the previous show.
We differ from other open mics in:
- We are live streamed on the internet with the performers remote from us.
- We allow comedians to specify their own set length, within reason.
- We lack technology to give performers “a light.” You will need to do your own timekeeping.
- We allow sign-ups from the floor, time permitting.
We have prepared notes and videos giving advice on performing live comedy via Zoom.
Code of Conduct:
We have not developed our own code of conduct as we believe that there should be a single code of conduct used by all comedy shows in New Zealand. The New Zealand Comedy Guild Incorporated has developed a code that we fully endorse. It can be found here (pdf).
We expect everyone involved with our shows, including ourselves, to abide by this code.
