The #EPCooker is one of Akron’s hottest open mics. Started in the basement of a flower shop, it is an artist driven event that sees over 100 audience members, 30 performances and 6 non-stop hours of art.

Sign ups to perform begin one-half hour (7:30 PM) before performances (8:00 PM) start. Anyone may sign up for a 10-minute slot.

An emcee, house drum kit and sound system (with operators) are provided.

ALL varieties of acts are encouraged to perform. Previous acts have included: monologues, acoustic musicians, play readings, comedians, experimental art, dancers, scenes from plays, improv, devised work, full rock bands and performance artists. But the sky is the limit; no art is too taboo for the #EPCooker!

ALL levels – from beginner to the most experienced – are encouraged to perform. Those under 18 are permitted to attend (and perform!) with adult supervision.

The #EPCooker is not just an Open Mic. It is an open and welcoming community of artists. It is also a great networking event, a great place to improve stage presence and a great place to develop as an artist.

Aqueduct Brewing provides craft beer and cider and Stray Dog offers a delicious selection of food..


Sarah Jones is a comedic performance artist, domestic engineer and native-ish Akronite. Recently returned from a 2 year trip to Venus, she is thrilled to be back in the Rubber City. NEO Maniacal Comedy Studio is a monthly comedy incubator held at Aqueduct Brewing, curated under Sarah's complete lack of expertise.

Some of the buzz surrounding this hot new performer includes:

"I heard she has kids now."
"Girl! Remember when we used to get drunk at Frank's?"
"Oh yeah- I ran into her at The Mustard Seed."

The only thing this comic likes doing more than performing is watching the morning news. Vivacious!
