The Pacific Northwest is becoming a comedy hot bed, and thanks to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the nurturing environment of the city, Portland is a scene on the verge. The goal of Funny Over Everything is to put together an entertaining show, but one with a curatorial eye towards the comedians involved. This isn’t an open-mic, and nobody is getting booked because they’re nice.
The Funny Over Everything comedy showcase is a monthly series showcasing some of the best, most innovative up-and-coming stand-up comedians that the nation has to offer. Past performers include Moshe Kasher, Ron Funches, Hannibal Buress, Ian Karmel, Timmy Williams, Sean Jordan and Shane Torres.

1 night only! The director of the still in-production documentary about the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and it’s impact on Portland’s comedy scene will be screening some clips of the upcoming film as well as bringing some of the town’s finest comics to the stage in an exclusive sneak preview event. Some of the footage shown will not be in the final version of the film and one segment specifically will probably never be seen anywhere else ever for reasons you’ll understand once you see it. Don’t miss it! Featuring Sean Jordan, Shane Torres, Amy Miller, Nathan Brannon and Dwight Slade!
