Portland, the amount of quality comedy in this town is ridiculous right now. You just can’t go anywhere without stepping on something new and different. I mean you can, it’s just hard because there’s all this new and different stuff laying haphazardly on the ground. We really should get a storage unit or something.
Anywho — this Friday, two AMAZING comedians are coming in from out of town and both of their shows are worth seeing. If you can find a way to see both, time-lord style, that would be the best option. But if you cannot do that, here are your other options:
Matt Braunger, Alberta Rose Theater, 8pm and 10pm. $10. He’s recording his cd!!
Doug Stanhope, Bagdad Theater, 9pm. $25. With Andy Andrist and Kristine Levine!!
ALSO KNOW that the really incredible duo The Sklar Brothers are in town at Helium [see them today or Saturday!] and a bunch of comics are going to be running amok in the Portland art museum. This Friday is going to rock.
