Best Comedy Open Mic Host: Jeff Rey At Tampa Improv

Jeff Rey At Tampa Improv

Jeff runs a tight ship (a rollover list, a random draw and a timer) but a fun one as well. Narrating from the back of the room, he offers themed music for each week and gets each performer on and off with sarcastic efficiency. There are even regular showcases on the main stage for those who prove themselves worthy on open mic night. He’s a nice guy, but don’t test him: Stay on stage too long, and the music will drown out whatever punch line you couldn’t quite finish. But at least it’s well-chosen music to go along with the theme so that have something to enjoy as you lick your wounds and drown your sorrows.
