It’s Just 2 Minutes: Stand-Up Comedy Game Show | Haight

Every first Tuesday of the month

Every first Tuesday at Milk Bar, San Francisco’s comedians are put to the test as they are given a random series of words and sentences seconds before getting on stage, where they then must construct entire two minute sets around each.

This improv-standup hybrid then lets the audience pick the top performer at the end of the night. The night is hosted by Josh Argyle.

It’s Just Two Minutes is a three round improvised stand-up comedy game-show that couldn’t exist without you, the audience. 9 comics take turns improvising stand-up sets based on one or two word prompts presented to them as they individually take the stage.

It’s Just Two Minutes Format:

  • In Round 1, the comics are given a one or two word prompt. They then improvise 2 minute of stand-up just for you, the audience. It’s 120 seconds of wit and hilarity.
  • Round 2 is the story round. Comics are given a simple prompt such as embarrassing story or bad date story then they open up to you, the audience, as you laugh uncontrollably at their awkward lives.
  • Round 3 requires a little help from you, the audience. In this round, you provide several prompts to the comics. The comic will say “I like my women like I like my…” or “I like my men like I like my…” and you yell out whatever you want. Seriously…whatever you want. The comic will then complete the sentence with a punchline. For example, “I like my women like I like my table lamps…picked out by my mother.” This is a lightning round of skill and wit.

At the end of Round 3, the audience will determine a winner. The winner receives all of the money in the Tip Jar of Justice and gets to perform some of their stand-up.
