Excellent news for your Sunday nights in October, comedy fans! A sketchtastic show from the makers of Fall of the House called Making Sex: A Sketch Comedy Threesome is hitting the Blue Monk on SE Belmont. Bri Pruett, Matt Hopkins, and Noah Dunham have put together a rad mix of improv, sketch, and featured stand-up acts. Last week’s show featured Comedy is OK mogul Andrew Michaan and was a rousing success, and tonight looks to be the same. Read on, McDuffs:
From the team that brought you Portland-centric “hipster sitcom” Fall of the House, Action/Adventure Theatre presents Making Sex: A Sketch Comedy Threesome. Matt Hopkins (Fall of the House, Working Theater Collective), Noah Dunham (FOTH, Fothing, Working Theater Collective), and Bri Pruett (FOTH, Curious Comedy sketch, Dopamine Improv) are a comedy threesome that you will want to call the next morning.
Making Sex… is a completely original sketch format. The cast presents you with their alter egos and then shows you more than you ever wanted to see! Using improvisation to generate material, Matt, Bri, and Noah play three roommates: Matt, Bri and Noah. They slowly reveal details about their odd, little lives and relationships through storytelling and reenactments. Noah doesn’t cook, ever. Bri is a stripper (not really). And Matt made his own girlfriend out of a pillow. Really.
Every week also features a great local stand-up comedian. Tonight is Sean Jordan, getting geared up to host for Doug Benson at Helium next week. Oct. 17 features Christian Ricketts and Oct. 24 is Ian Karmel. And then to top it all off, there’s a Halloween costume contest slash dance party on Oct. 31! All the shows starts at 8pm. Be sure to czech it out sometime this month, friends.
