Warning: This show's subject is risque. Still with me? Read on.
Narcomics Anonymous. The name has a certain ring to it, and the show's concept is quite intriguing. Part showcase, part open mic, part Comedic writing challenge, this new Comedy series will draw from the talent pools of both new and seasoned Portland Comics. The participants are Comics seeking to exercise their ability to go from writing to performing new topical material in a relatively short period of time.
This is the first run of the series, with the show being set to take place every 2nd and 4th Wednesday with a new topic each time. The REALLY cool thing is that we, the audience, are asked to submit suggestions for the next episode's subject of discussion at the close of each installment. We will then vote on the top three suggestions for show topics, the winning topic being presented for our enjoyment the next time around.
The subject of Narcomics Anonymous' Maiden Voyage is one ripe with Comedic possibility as well as Comedic probability. The subject is 'Porn.' Like it or loathe it, you can bet that the selected panel of Comics will have plenty to say about it. The show's 'Keynote Speaker,' Amanda Arnold, will reign over the proceedings and guarantee a good laugh. The show's Hosts, Joe Glad and Scott Von Wald will keep the bawdy ball bouncing.
Here is what the event's invite had to say about what to expect:
'Narcomics Anonymous is a brand new bi-weekly Stand Up Comedy Show where you, the audience, decide the topic. The show is staged as a support group, where the comics discuss how the "Topic of the week" has effected them comedically. Our inaugural topic is going to be "Porn" with the Hilarious and knowledgeable Amanda Arnold as the Keynote Speaker. Hosted by Scott Von Wald and Joe Glad. The 2nd and 4th Wednesday of Every month at 9pm.'
