WILLAMETTE WEEK’S FUNNIEST 5 STANDUP SHOWCASE
Add to Calendar
FULLY SEATED, 21+ EVENT
The funniest night in Portland comedy is upon us.
That’s not just our opinion. It’s a scientific fact.
Every year since 2013, WW has polled Portland’s comedy insiders—more than 100 comedians, club owners, show producers, podcasters and other comedy fanatics—to find the freshest, funniest faces in the local standup scene. Then, we take the top five vote-getters, put them on the cover, and gather them all on the same stage for our annual Funniest Five Showcase.
Still don’t believe us? Check out audio from last year’s showcase, where subject matter ranged from kinky sex in a sleep apnea mask to jokes about racist bacon-loving trolls on Twitter: https://www.wweek.com/culture/2018/12/14/listen-to-the-five-funniest-people-in-portland-crack-jokes-at-wws-annual-comedy-showcase/. It’s NSFW, but you’re an adult—we’re sure you can handle it.
It’s not just your best chance to see the most hilarious new voices in Portland—it’s an early peek at comedy’s future stars. Past performers such as Amy Miller, Mohanad Elshieky, Bri Pruett and Curtis Cook have gone on to do big things on the national stage.
That’s all to say, you’re going to want to be there. Otherwise, you won’t know what everyone is laughing about tomorrow.
