Welcome to the most hysterical dating event in the London dating calendar, where love's misadventures and quirks are celebrated with roars of laughter! If you've ever thought that some of your dating mishaps were worthy of a stand-up routine, this event was tailor-made for you.
Introducing the Open Mic Singles Event – an evening where singles can share their most amusing, embarrassing, and memorable dating stories. Hosted by Dateinadash founder, Rob Ryall, and things he’s seen, heard and been a part of over the last decade and more, these evenings are about getting to know other singles through your experiences. But don’t panic, the stories shared don’t even need to be disastrous and there’s no expectation for anyone to get up on stage if you don’t fancy it.
Why are we putting on an Open Mic for Singles?
In the world of swipes, ghosting, and quirky first dates, everyone's got a story or two up their sleeve. Us included! This unique event, that’s really taken off, isn't just about recounting bad dates. It's also about finding humour in the unpredictable world of dating and celebrating the resilience and humour of single folks in our wonderful capital and everywhere!
The Format of our London Comedy Open Mic for Singles
Similar to a traditional open mic night, our comedy open mic event but for singles! With around 60 singles (equal numbers of men and women) at the singles event, you will have the chance to mingle, chat and flirt after the event at the bar and enjoy the fantastic live music at this top London venue.
But before that, everyone in attendance is invited to share one or more stories, make it a stand-up routine, or even spin a poetic tale of their dating life!
The event lasts for two hours and is just £15 a ticket; they will sell out FAST so don’t delay! Like what you hear? Head over to the Piano Works in Leicester Square on the first Wednesday of the month, promising an evening of unpredictable humour.
Whether you've been on countless dates or just a handful, everyone has a unique perspective on the dating world. From the quintessential blind date gone wrong to that unexpected romantic gesture that left you in stitches, all tales are welcome here. The more diverse our stories, the richer the tapestry of laughs!
Beyond the Mic
While the heart of the event lies in the comedic recounting of dating escapades, the night offers more than just laughs. This is also a chance to connect with others, share experiences, and who knows, maybe even spark a connection! (Though we can't promise that any ensuing dates won't become material for future events!)
Advice for our gorgeous participants
Be Authentic: The best stories come from a place of truth. While it's fine to exaggerate for comedic effect, your story should be rooted in a real dating experience!
Respect Privacy: While sharing your stories, ensure you don't reveal personal details about your date that might identify them, especially if the story isn't flattering.
It's All in Good Fun: Remember, this is a comedy open mic event. It's all about finding the fun in situations even if they aren’t funny. We’d say to approach your story with a light heart and good intentions.
Whether you're a seasoned dater, a one hit wonder or someone just looking to share a hilarious tale, this is your platform. And for those not ready to take the stage, come and enjoy a night of relatable laughs, and who knows, maybe you'll leave with a funny dating story of your own.
In a world where dating can sometimes feel like a series of unpredictable events, what better way to cope than to share and laugh together? So, dust off those dating diaries and join us for an unforgettable night of comedy and camaraderie. See you at the mic!
