Stand-up comedy open mic nights are where comedians go to try out some new material.

It’s also a space where aspiring comedians can have a spot to try out their material as well; to find out if they got what it takes to make people laugh.


Sometimes this takes time, but it’s all part of the process.


EVERY well known comedian you can think of started at an Open Mic night. They came in as often as possible, working their material until they got that laugh.


DNA Cafe wants to become a spot where aspiring comedians can have their 5 mins of fame. While also being a spot where any & all comedians can have a fun space to try new material. Who knows? We may find the next Trevor Noah!


So in short, you never know what you gonna get, that’s what makes the night interesting and fun.


Yes, there is an Entrance fee for the audience attending= R100 at the door
