I've worn a few hats since I first discovered how much I adore Portland Comedy: Fan, Fan group Organizer, Sponsor, Co-Producer. But this is a first for me. I'm happy to announce, I'm Producing a Comedy show!
Introducing PDX Comedy Fans Productions, and our first Comedy event: Bon Mot: Two-Part Comedy Show at Jade Lounge!
The show’s title, Bon Mot, is a French expression which literally translates to “Good word.” A bon mot is defined as a witty remark or comment, pronounced bawn moh.
As its full title suggests, Bon Mot: Two-Part Comedy Show is a full night of Comedy in two separate, yet complete, showcases with unique lineups. Whether you choose to attend the early show, the late show, or both, you will be taking in a robust evening of laughter and merriment.
Early (Bon) Show:
Seating at 6pm with music by DJ: Mr. Doobs
Show at 6:30pm until 8pm
(Patrons 18 and over may join us until 8pm)
Andy Schanz’s combination of stand up, lively songs, and impressions of famous characters has amused and delighted audiences at Comedy clubs all over the region including Harvey’s, Helium, and the Bend Comedy run. Andy is also a past winner of the Eugene Laff Off Competition.
Belinda Carroll is a nationally-touring Comedian, contributing writer for such publications as PQ Monthly and Curve, Singer, Actress, and Producer. A true powerhouse who combines hilarity with social activism and makes everyone feel included with her act.
Scoot Herring’s website bills him as a, “Comedian. Karaoke DJ. Pug Owner.” His explorations of topics such as time travel, Disney, and “Dude Bros” are guaranteed to bring nerdy glee to the hearts of young and old alike. Check out his podcast, Press Scoot to Continue.
Jason Traeger’s out-of-this-world Comedy pulls from his experiences organizing and participating in independent art and music scenes and his travels as a visual artist; drawing, painting, sculpting, and documenting. His elegantly moving Portland Stand-Up Comedy Photo Album is a MUST see.
Both the Early (Bon) and the Late (Mot) showcases are hosted by Anessa Deathrage, Artist, Comedian, and Co-Organizer for PDX Comedy Fans.
Parking for the venue is off-street and free of charge.
The Slide Inn is just South of Trimet bus line #20
This show is 18 and up! Jade Lounge welcomes those under 21 until 8pm.
