Innovative, hilarious comedians coming together to perform, discuss, inform, and inspire. A four-day festival featuring stand-up, sketch, improv, panels, workshops, and a screening of the documentary Women Aren’t Funny, directed by headliner Bonnie McFarlane.
The first and only festival of its kind, this four-day event presents a carefully curated blend of the best up-and-coming comedic performers and nationally headlining comics from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, and beyond.
This year’s lineup includes Bonnie McFarlane (HBO One-Night Stand, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Last Comic Standing), Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black, The To-Do List, Are You There Chelsea?), Cameron Esposito (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, “Put Your Hands Together”), and Aparna Nancherla and Janine Brito (writers and performers on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell). Local performers include Portland staples Whitney Streed, Stacey Hallal, Barbara Holm, JoAnn Schinderle, Susan Rice, Amy Miller, and expatriate Virginia Jones.
The goal of this festival is to celebrate the unique voices of women in comedy, providing inspiration and increasing visibility for the top performers of today and tomorrow. It encourages collaboration and dialogue and highlights the great diversity of artistic approaches amidst female comedic performers today.
Most events will take place at Curious Comedy Theater (5225 N. Martin Luther King Dr.), which produces and sponsors the festival. Two special Friday night shows at Alberta Rose Theater (3000 N. Alberta St.) have been added. The film screening will occur at the historic Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE Sandy Blvd.) on Sunday, October 20 at 3 p.m., followed by a Q&A with the director and three special guests.
A four-show pass is only $55. Unlimited weekend passes are $80 and permit access to any combination of shows including the opening night party,Thursday 10/17 at 5:30pm. Individual show prices range from $12 to $25. Group rates are available. www.alljanenodick.com
