Hey! How are you doing? You’re sad because summer is ending? Don’t be sad! The comedians of Portland, Oregon are here for you and they’ve made all sorts of incredible stuff to cheer you up. Continue reading
We are rich with talent in Portland. Enjoy our locally-sourced* writers/directors/actors/nice people, doing things that don’t fall under the live performance umbrella! Artisanal artisans, one and all! Kale salad! Anyway, here’s a weekly roundup of things to read/watch/listen to. More of this stuff every Thursday. Thursday is Links Day, Friday is Upcoming Shows Day. So it was written, and so it shall be, at least until I slip up and forget. Get in touch with me if you have something to plug!
* as a filthy transplant, I reserve the right to sneak in the occasional non-local.
John Breen is a big name in the improv and theater worlds. His improv comedy workshops are the stuff of legend, and his writing is acclaimed across Portland and around the US. So when he tells you that he’s ready and eager to direct “Crook County War,” his first feature length film, you can believe that it’s true.
There are just 14 days left for Breen’s project to reach its goal, and every contribution will help make this very funny script with a very funny cast into a very funny reality. Check out the Indiegogo campaign page, watch the movie, and if you chuckle even once, throw a $20 their way (or a $2000 if you’re able) and feel good supporting local art by local artists that will serve to elevate Portland even further as a mecca for top-notch comedy.
