Every league member (performer) must be 21 years of age or older and must have read and agreed to the Gotham City Karaoke rules and waiver of liability.

Each performer must wear his or her team t-shirt while performing, but may wear costumes so long as the team t-shirt remains visible. If a performer fails to wear his or her league t-shirt, league staff have the right to enforce consequences aligned with the rules grievance procedures. T-shirts may be modified, but the t-shirt must remain wearable, and worn above the waist during performances, for the duration of the season.

All karaoke league members must abide by all laws regarding alcohol consumption. Further, all rules of the host establishment shall be strictly enforced. Rowdy, disrespectful, violent or otherwise problematic league members may be subject to disciplinary actions, including, but not limited to disqualification, suspension or expulsion from league activities.

Performers must follow all local laws and regulations. Prohibited behaviors (also known as the “R-E-S-P-E-C-T Rules”) shall include: hanging/climbing on or around venue structures, throwing or tossing items into the crowd/audience or at venue equipment, using or spraying any hard-to-clean material, including but not limited to glitter, confetti, water or other liquids, paint, glue, powder, and silly string, and any other actions or behaviors that damage or have the potential to cause damage to the venue, staff, audience, teams, or equipment. The use of aerosols, such as whipped cream, should be used in a way that maintains safe and clean surfaces. Live animals or pets are prohibited, unless otherwise permitted by local laws and regulations. When in doubt, ask a member of league staff.

Teams must clean up after themselves before leaving the venue, including discarding or taking home all unfinished food, trash, props, costumes, and other items.

Leagues may establish a system of consequences for the purposes of enforcing these rules.
