One of the great things about comedy is that comedians take care of their own. When storytelling great Ron Shock was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that bankrupt him and his family last year, comedians all over the country started organizing benefits. Here in Portland, led by the magical Kristine Levine, folks have put together not a comedy show but a storytelling showcase. So cool!
A whole boatload of awesome comedians will be telling their stories this Saturday at the Star Theater (13 NW 6th Ave). Local favorites Ian Karmel, Nathan Brannon, Tynan Delong, Belinda Carroll, Carmen Trineece and more!!
This night will be awesome and a unique chance to hear about parts of these comedians’ lives that rarely get discussed on stage. I will be there and I am very much looking forward to it. Show starts at 9pm. $7-$10 sliding scale to get in the door. You can buy tickets in advance from Brownpaper Tickets here.
And to pass the time until then, enjoy some stories from Ron Shock himself:
