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.
Late (Mot) Show:
Seating at 8pm with music by DJ: Mr. Doobs
Show at 8:30pm until 10pm
(Patrons must be 21 and over after 8pm)
Trevor Thorpe, a transplant from San Diego, has been described as, “Sometimes dark and cynical, but always fun.” A former student of Film and Screenwriting, Trevor has successes in performing and producing Stand Up Comedy, both of which he does with unmistakeable Rock and Roll style.
Grace Sadie Cejas, a spirited Latina and Rock ‘n’ Roll Mama, draws funny from a life filled with unconventional experiences. Once described as “Sweet Like a Cavity,” she brings the laughs all over the West, and as far away as Dick’s Beantown Comedy Vault in Boston, MA. She’s also performed in the 7th Annual NW Women’s Comedy Festival.
Boomer is a former on-air radio personality, and one half of the once #1 rated drive-time Cort and Boomer show on the now-defunct KUFO. Boomer is currently taking his sharp wit to a whole other level performing live Stand-Up Comedy. He is known for his playful crowd work and keen observations, and produces a weekly Comedy show at the World Famous Cannabis Cafe.
Nariko was once dubbed “The Frank Zappa of Portland Comedy” by the press, and it just kind of stuck. His off-the-wall style is 110% Rock, as evidenced by the Portland Mercury quote: “Nariko Ott has decided that Comedy can be Metal.” In fact, this former Finalist in the Portland’s Funniest Person Contest is so Comedy/Metal that he produces a show that’s just that: Lex Hilaris at White Owl Social Club.
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.
