Bridgetown Comedy Festival Kicks Off Tonight

Thursday, May 07, 2015


Bridgetown Comedy Festival will be held May 7th–10th.

Over 50 of the hottest names in comedy will have you laughing your a** off, at this year’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival

The four-day festival starting tonight May 7th, brings Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk, The Simpsons' Dana Gould, The Daily Show's Jessica Williams, and other hilarious folks to different venues in inner east Portland. 

The comedy fest isn’t just about national comedians, Portland’s signature quirky and sometimes nerdy style will be highlighted as well. Portlander Bri Pruett will be participating in the erotic fan fiction show, Brandy Felt will perform during the Comedy and Cocktails show, and Steven Wilber will star in the Ron Lynch: Crapshoot show. 

A Deluxe Festival Pass will get you into every show including the Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist 20th Anniversary Celebration along with the Live Wire collaboration show. 

If you want to check out a single show you can pay admission at the door, just know that you won’t be able to go to every show at that one venue. 

Plenty of booze will be available to buy during the festival, so make sure to bring your 21 and over friends.
