    JIM CARUSO'S CAST PARTYJim Caruso's Cast Party

    Get ready, San Francisco! Jim Caruso’s Cast Party is a wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003, Jim Caruso’s Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show/open mic where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Think “American Idol” meets “The Tonight Show.” Imagine Martin Short and Liza Minnelli throwing a hip house party around the baby grand…and you were invited! 

    Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan, but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Theatrical legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists and kids right off the bus, take to the stage and entertain each other. If you have a voice, a dream and some sheet music, your Cast Party moment awaits.

    Caruso has also taken the show on the road, and celebrated talent in London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Miami, as well as very special all-star events at The Town Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Cast Party has been honored with three Broadway World Awards, a MAC Award, Bistro Award, and a Nightlife Award.

    Interested open mic participants can learn more about the event and sign up to secure a spot by emailing the host at or learn more about the event at
