Comedy is the new coffee.

The Backlot Comedy House, filling our hearts will laughter every Friday night!

I used to be like you. Go out every Friday, have a few drinks, and have a good laugh at a nice Pub, but there comes a time when you need something different. If you still want side-splitting humor to shake all the hustle and bustle from the busy work week, The Backlot Comedy House is the place to be. Every Friday night they are host to a variety of sketch and improvisational comedy that will have you rolling in no time. Posted loud and proud on the Downtown Oshkosh events page you can find a great introduction to what you might find. Here’s what The Backlot Comedy House has to say for themselves about the open mic on their page

Comedy Open Mic, Stand Up Comedy, test out your material on stage, in front of a room of your peers. Join us at the Backlot Comedy House and get your name on the coveted list. Once on the list, you can both max and/or relax until your name is likely mispronounced by the host of the evening, then it is your chance to drop five minutes of original comedy. Don’t do comedy – come watch! It’s FREE! Hey, there’s no drink minimum, so why not?

There is no cover at the door for Open Mic Nights, but you are able to make a donation to keep it live and going!

(Psst. Those of you testing out material. It’s important to know that crude sets don’t work well in our space. You will know, because the audience won’t laugh, however – we will discuss this with you if you choose to do a set that isn’t so pleasant.)

Have questions? Give us a call! 920.479.6023 or email us at

No carry ins, please.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to try my hand at stand-up comedy. With improv, sketch, open mic, and even showcase stand-up comedy, there’s an event for everyone looking for a good laugh. Check the cast out every second Saturday for “Truth Confessions”. If there’s one thing I know about the truth, and confessions, it’s always hilarious when it’s not you on the spot.

During Truth Confessions, the members of the Backlot cast take turns unveiling random facts. Then, just sit back and watch the fun as they tear each other apart in a search for who is telling the truth. And who is the big-old liar, with great big pants on fire. Can you tell who’s telling the truth? Come find out! For more information check out their Facebook page here.

The Backlot Comedy House is located at 424 N Main Street Downtown Oshkosh, WI.
