With more than a dozen acts of all shapes and sizes, drawn from across the south coast and further afield, a packed night is in store.
From observational comedy to gag merchants, deadpan dry wit to surreal bundles of energy, there will be something for every taste.
Everyone gets 5 minutes and will be assessed for originality, material and performance by a judging panel of promoters and experienced comedy watchers.
Club MC Russ Bravo explains: "Our Open Mic nights have always been great fun, and given a chance to new, local and up and coming acts to make their debut or build up experience.
"We wanted to do something a bit different and when Worthing Theatres suggested offering a paid-for spot on the same bill as Jo Brand, we jumped at the chance. It's a great opportunity for someone to get their act out there in front of a sell-out crowd – maybe their first step to stardom?"
Tickets for the gig on Thursday 30 October at the Connaught Studio (8pm) are just £5 from from Worthing Theatres on 01903 206206 or www.worthingtheatres.co.uk, local outlets Parklife, Music Mania and The Lazy Brunch – and on the door.
