Graduation Show at the Bagdad this Friday!

Come to the Bagdad this Friday see the new crop of stand-ups that started this year! Show starts at 10pm and will, based on the length of the line-up, go on until early 2012. (This isn’t even the end of it: I believe there’s another run-off show next week.) But it’s certainly heartening to see just how many awesome people have joined the community this year. Go Portland comedy go!

Featuring: Grace Sadie, Jordan Casner, Nick Walker, Jay Dean, Patrick Thomas Perkins, Joe Hieronymus, Jon Washington, Brady Echerer, Seth Millstein, Danny Felts, Antony Joplin, Katie Brien, Jacob Christopher, Stephanie Purtle, and Jen Allen.

Hosted by the always affable Tristian Spillman.

Marc Maron at Helium

Just a quick mention: Marc Maron is performing tomorrow and the rest of the week at Helium Comedy Club. If you haven’t listened to his podcast, then pull your head out of your ass and download some episodes, cause it’s the best. More info and buying tickets can be found on – the Wednesday show is a bit cheaper, for all you cheap fucks out there (me).

Here’s a video of Marc interviewing the famous Latino Radio personality El Chupacabra:

Rose City Rollers Fundraiser Comedy Show at Red Velvet Parlour

Women like haircuts. Everybody knows that, especially the ladies. What women like more, besides Mel Gibson, are fundraiser comedy shows for people who are not suffering from cancer or anything serious besides the inability to stand perfectly still. So that covers appeal for one half of the population – and I am quite sure that men will enjoy this show as well (and not just because the place will be packed with breeding age human females).
The cause is important; the Rose City Rollers need money, so they can get orange slices at halftime. What I do know is that the money raised at this show will be going to Red Velvet Parlour, then to the rollers. So really if you come to the show and buy a ticket, you are sponsoring Red Velvet Parlour’s capacity to sponsor the Rose City Rollers. Look at you, supporting two causes! Like a regular Mother Fucking Theresa over here, and without the hidden Atheism.
The bottom line is that this is going to be an awesome show in a unique venue. I expect everyone in the city of Portland to attend.

Wine bar (probably some beer too), and a fun time photo booth for people. Not sure if there will be any chairs or a stage. Guess we’ll just have to have extra fun to make up for it :(

{EDITOR’S NOTE: I realize that the Mel Gibson movie referenced was ‘What Women Want’ not ‘What Women Like’, the poorly received sequel. Also, I finally got word that this show is 15$, because orange slices and capri suns are expensive maybe.}
