Flat12 Bierwerks

Once a month on a very special Friday, Rocketship Comedy holds a show downtown at Flat12 Bierwerks. All year round, audience members can come early and grab a hoagie from Hoagies & Hops, a pint from the taproom, and a seat to watch the show. Nationally recognized comedians like Matt Braunger, Sean Patton, Geoff Tate, Stewart Huff, and Laura Sanders have all headlined past shows at Flat12. 

Tickets for Flat12 can be pre-ordered at a discount at Eventbrite. If there are any left, they can be purchased at the door for full price.

Open Society Public House

Every Sunday since 2011 we've produced the Sunday Showcase, bringing audiences top quality talent for absolutely free. The Sunday Showcase has had a few homes, and it currently lives at the Open Society Public House in South Broad Ripple of Indianapolis. A mixture of local comedians and out-of-town acts, the Sunday Showcase shows off the best of what the Indianapolis comedy scene has to offer. Comedians like Mary Mack, Nick Rutherford and Brad Wenzel are among those who have headlined the Sunday Showcase in the past. Be sure to come in each week to see who's in town since we've been known to put up a secret headliner every now and then!

Shoefly Public House

Every Monday we produce The Monday Show stand up open mic over at the Shoefly Public House basement. This is the perfect place to try stand up for the first time, or just to see what an open mic is like in the city. The list is always a combination of new talent and seasoned veterans, and you never know when a headliner like Al Jackson or Megan Gailey is going to drop in to close the show.

Interested in performing? Arrive prior to 7:30 PM to sign up. Spots fill up very quickly. There's no cover charge, and the comedian who brings the most audience members gets a gift certificate to Shoefly Public House.
