The Riff is Elizabeth's open mic event. Based on the idea that comedians need to focus on being in the moment and spontaneous, this is what The Riff is about. Each comic draws a name/phrase/word from a box and then create a 4 minute set right on the spot. Sounds frightening but the room is very supportive and super fun. 

September is going to be super exciting because it's the one year anniversary for The Riff and there's likely to be cake! Plus every comic who signs up will be able to submit a suggestion for the box o' words. 

Guest co-host this month will be Justin Flowers (Tell It From the Heart)
