What is an "Open Mic" session?

An open mic session is not a contest; instead it is an opportunity for an attendee to do his or her best 6 minutes in front of an audience.  For those registered for the Junior and Senior Open Mics, each participant will get a DVD of their act and a certificate as well as comments from a panel of three judges, who will give their opinions as to how the act went, what needs to improve, etc.  There are no winners...there are no losers! This is a great way to brush up on your act without the pressure of a contest.  You only compete with yourself!
