Comedy open mics in NYC and Boston?

Are comedy open mics as awful and cringy as music open mics? Can I have some suggestions of good ones in New York City and Boston? At the moment, I just want to be an audience member, with thoughts of maybe getting on stage at some point in the future. [more inside]

Difficulty factor: near-total ignorance of Sondheim

Help me avoid embarrassment. I have no training and couldn't tell you what my range is using, like, technical terms, but when singing I embarrass myself least with Amy Winehouse's song You Know I'm No Good. Taking that as my (only) data point, what song should I attempt at an evening of Sondheim?
