It’s a cool weekend in Portland if you’re a comedy nerd who also likes written words. Two excellent comedians are coming through town to promote their new books in the next few days.
Today (Thursday), comedian/poet/writer/rad dude Bucky Sinister will be reading from his new book “Time Bomb Snooze Alarm” at Slabtown, 1033 NW 16th Ave. The even will also feature music & poetry. Fun starts at 7:30pm.
Then on Sunday, the hilarious Moshe Kasher will be reading from his new book “Kasher in the Rye” at Powell’s on Burnside starting at 7:30pm. There will be a Q&A afterwards. If you need more Moshe stand-up in your life — and really who doesn’t? — he’ll be performing at the Mission Theater with some local favorites the night before. [EDIT: And apparently Bucky is opening for Moshe on Saturday! Double trouble!]
