Best comedy open mic: SUBCENTRAL AT IBERIAN ROOSTER

Best comedy open mic

Open mics are often a dreary affair, with more empty chairs than human beings. But Subcentral, run by John Jacobs and Shannon Kelly (pictured), has a lock on Tuesday nights. Most weeks you’ll find dozens of performers, a full room of people and hours (yes, hours) of amateur stand-up comedy. It’s still an open mic, so the talent is hit-and-miss. But for stage time on a Tuesday night, it’s as good as it gets in Tampa Bay. iberianrooster.com. —Michael Murillo
