Saturday is the New Friday

What the fuck is up, friends? It’s a lovely damp warm day here in Airport City, n’est pas? You might be thinking to yourself, well, lucky me, it’s Friday. I can get my laugh on at the Bagdad tonight, or at Fly Ass Jokes at the Brody, or many other places as well. And you would only be a little bit right, in the “many other places” part. Because this week both Portland’s weekly Friday stand-up showcases are moving to Saturday.

Why? Something in the ether, maybe because Mercury is in retrograde. Maybe because on this day in 1859 Joshua A. Norton declared himself “Emperor Norton I” of the United States, and hosts Tristian Spillman and Ian Karmel have the due amount of respect for His Imperial Majesty to defer their comedy shows and allow everyone the chance to celebrate the holiday today in their own way, with family and friends.

Whatever the reason, The Fly Ass Comedy Showcase will feature Sean Jordan, Shane Torres, Nathan Brannon, and Richard Bain, showtime at at 8pm, costing just $10. Comedy Night at the Bagdad will feature Marcia Belsky, Carmen Trineece, Whitney Streed (me), Timmy Williams, Don Frost, all for $5 starting at 10pm. See you there or in hell, friends!

Nathan Brannon’s Comedy Showcase at Aztec Willie’s 5/2/10

Comedy friends and family! I am sorry to have left you in a lurch for a fortnight. I’ve been dealing with some issues and issuing with some deals, but I’m back in action and ready to keep you appraised of the comedic uprising happening in our fair city. Something familiar, something peculiar, references for everyone — it’s comedy tonight!

So ! If you are in the mood for some laughter tonight, head out to Aztec Willie’s on 1501 NE Broadway to catch Nathan Brannon’s Comedy Showcase entertaining you alongside Aztec Willie’s Live Band! Catch comedians, Don Frost, Lance Edward, Kyle Harbert, and Anthony Lopez, and then chill with the musical performance of Park Blocks! It’s all super free and you get extra karma points if you bring canned goods to help out folks without homes. Should be an awesome time, kitten caboodles, I hope to see you there!

Also — tonight or tomorrow I’ll get all the rules posted for the comedy contest happening all this month, so tune in tomorrow, same cat time, same cat channel!
