Bringing stand-up comedy to the cannabis dispensary

This town is known for its amazing nightlife.

Although we are not the biggest city in the state, we are considered the “crown jewel” when it comes to musical and artistic talent.

With so many nightclubs, bars, and music venues, it’s easy to find live bands or comedians any night of the week. There are performers who move here just to break into the business, because a lot of famous people have first gotten noticed while performing locally. Another thing this town is known for is our amazing locally sourced cannabis. I am a manager of one of the many local cannabis dispensaries, and I decided to try and combine these two great aspects of the town. I have a small stage in the smokers lounge adjoining the cannabis dispensary, and I have an “open mic night” every weekend for comics and singers. The stage is very small, so it cannot fit a full band, just a single person, so most of the acts at the cannabis dispensary are comedians. We have a couple of singer-songwriters who play acoustic guitar and sing love songs, but as you might imagine the comics are a lot more popular with the cannabis crowd. People who are high on marijuana love to laugh, so even the bad comedians tend to get a lot of chuckles from the crowd. I personally don’t care if the comics are any good or not, I just love the extra bump in revenue the cannabis dispensary gets. If you have never been to an open mic night at the dispensary, you should check it out!
