Get pulled under at this free comedy open mic! Integral to the process and a staple of the mythology of stand up comedy, you just never know who will stop by an open mic. Whether it's a headliner trying out a new bit, or a brave civilian dipping their toe into stand up for the first time, you're sure to have a great time as a plethora of comics all take the stage for 5 minute sets. Been working on a "tight five" of your own? Come on over to Black Squid and sign up! Who knows, maybe this is the first step to your HBO special. There's only one way to find out!

Originally from St. Louis Marcus Coleman was named one of Portland’s “Geniuses of Comedy” by the Portland Mercury in 2016 and Willamette Week's Funniest 5 in 2017. A laid back shit-talker with a smile, he’s been called a “bright new star” and praised for “sharp, smart jabs on politics, family, and life as a black man” by Portland Mercury. Marcus has had the privilege to perform in some pretty amazing settings such as Revolution Hall, 2017 Bridgetown Comedy Festival, 2017 SF Sketchfest, 2017 Pickathon Festival, and Helium Comedy Club; where he is a regular host and was named “Dirty Dozen Roast Battle champion”. He hosts the raucous and unpredictable Midnight Mic every Friday night at Funhouse Lounge, and is one of the co-hosts of “You're Welcome” at Mississippi Pizza.
