Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to sign up in advance?

No. Sign up when you arrive. Performance slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

How long do I have on stage?

Each slot is 5 minutes.

What types of performers do you usually get?

We've had all sorts of acts — monologues, scenes from musicals, poetry. Most performers are either stand-up comedians or musicians/singers. Some musicians play covers, many perform their own, original stuff. No one has ever filibustered or played the ukulele. You could be the first!

Where is Roc House?

Roc House is located in Congregation Ramath Orah on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The street address is 550 West 110th Street. That's between Broadway and Amsterdam Ave.

What happened to Makor?

Makor closed their Upper West Side location, leaving us (temporarily) homeless. Fortunately, we've found a great new venue at Roc House, which is where we'll be for our next event.
