Bridgetown Comedy Festival announced it's new site and 2010 lineup yesterday. It's a good one including: Maria Bamford (video below), Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Danny Pudi (Community), TIM MEADOWS, and about 75 more. There will be over 100 by the time the festival arrives.
Check out all the performers here and you will recognize many of them from Comedy Central and other late night show appearances.
Being involved with a site such as this, I experience a lot of entertainment Portland. Bridgetown Comedy Fest is one of the best events we have. We are truly lucky to have Andy Wood & Kim Brady to put this on. Not only is it a big party for Portlanders, it's a big party for the comedians. They are out walking around Hawthorne checking out each other acts, drinking beers, and just having a good time. I spoke with many of them last year and they were loving the event and our city. Even if you are not someone who goes out comedy regularly (or ever), you should experience this event as it is a really unique event for Portland and a fantastic time.
To Win Tickets: We are giving away 2 full festival passes this week. Check out the lineup here. Comment on ths post and tell us which comedian (or comedians) you want to see and WHY. Perhaps, give us some quotes from a show or talk about seeing them before, etc. If you don;t know anyone on there, then just tell us why you want to go. We will draw winners on Fridays.
The full passes are also on sale right now for $50 (3 days = great deal) and you can buy them here.
On the Twitter? @Bridgetown will be updating information and having more giveaways as the event draws near.
