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, Jerrod Carmichael, Doug Benson, Emily Heller, Ian Karmel, Timmy Williams, Sean Jordan and Shane Torres.
Saturday, 10/18 at 9:30pm | $10. Advance tickets are here.
