Much goodness is happening in this week in the way of shows, but one in particular stands out: Musty’s Smoking Spring Spectacular at the Bagdad. The line-up is packed full of great comedians from Portland and Seattle: Richard Bain, Ian Karmel, Ron Funches, Tristian Spillman, Patrick Thomas Perkins, Jen Seaman, and Alex Meyer, plus an appearance by Gabe Dinger & Jimmy Newstetter as Jim Jam Gabe-aroo, and of course Mark “The Mustard Man” Kikel running the show.
But even more amazing that the line-up is the poster. if there ever was a show to see based solely on the awesomeness of its advertisement, this is the one. Tristian Spillman, you have truly outdone yourself. Show starts at 10pm and is, as always, $5. See you there for jokes and tokes, folks!
Snappy Tuesday! Let me ask you, comedy friends, how often are there two awesome showcases on the Same Night in town?? The answer is… rather often, actually, this is a pretty hopping scene right now. But this week two of the most established and awesome showcases are rolling along on Wednesday, so there is no reason for you to not be enjoying some laughter and lightness as September rolls to a close.
Comedy is OK rocks Helium Comedy Club at 8pm with the oh-so-funny Ron Funches, Mark Saltveit, Phil Schallberger, dalas verdugo, and Brock Fansler, with your effervescent hosts Mikey Kampmann and Andrew Michaan. [EDIT: Also apparently Andy Haynes will be there, hot off the presses from a set on Jimmy Fallon!] Also there will be fake porn, or so I hear. Very good times!
Keep Portland Funny destroys the Knife Shop at Kelly’s Olympian at 9pm. Lovable host Dennis Williams brings a whizbang cast of characters to the stage, including Christen Manville, Timmy Williams, Andy Wood, and in a rather impressive feat Andrew Michaan again! Very good times as well. See you there or there or another there!
