Greg Behrendt Performs Valentine’s Show at Helium Comedy Club

Friday, February 12, 2016


Greg Behrendt

Killer comedian and romantic comedy staple Greg Behrendt will perform a special series of Valentine’s Day weekend stand-up shows this weekend at Portland’s Helium Comedy Club.

Behrendt premiered his second comedy special, “That Guy from That Thing,” in 2009, on Comedy Central. He then hit the road with his “Greg Behrendt’s Totally Into You Comedy Tour” and made his Edinburgh Festival debut at The Assembly Rooms.

He wrote a half-hour sitcom pilot for CBS in 2010, while also producing and starring in “There Might be Cake,” an unscripted pilot for IFC,  performed stand-up at both the Melbourne and Montreal International Comedy Festivals, and worked as a Consulting Producer on NBC’s Love Bites. 

In 2011 Greg launched the podcast “Walking the Room” and its standup spin-off, “Starfish Circus”, both of which he hosts with Dave Anthony; he also headlined an episode of John Oliver’s New York Standup Show on Comedy Central, performed stand-up at Nando’s Cape Town Comedy Festival in South Africa, and is currently writing a pilot for AMC with Hank Azaria and Jerry Stahl. Additionally, Greg tours country with his band The Reigning Monarchs and is a NY Times bestselling author.

Behrendt’s Valentine’s Day weekend appearance is especially timely, as he is known for his role in “He’s Just Not That Into You.”

Behrendt will perform  six shows this weekend at the Helium Comedy Club, located at 1510 SE 9th Avenue. He will appear at 8 PM on Thursday, February 8, at 7:30 PM and 10 PM on Friday, February 12 and Saturday, February 13, and will wrap up his stay in Portland with a final 7:30 PM show on Sunday, February 14.

10 Things 'Basic' Girls in Portland Do

If you don't know what a 'Basic Bitch' is, a quick Google search will get you to the definition pretty fast. 'Basic Bitch' has been a trending term amongst twenty-somethings for the past couple years, typically used to describe a privileged, white, young female whose interests center around mainstream media and girly trends. The term 'Basic Bitch' was originally used within the LGBT and drag communities as an insult to competitors at vogue balls, according to an article by PAPER Magazine. But over the years the term has been used across sites such as College Humor, Thought Catalog and Buzzfeed to describe 'average' white girls. But why is it bad for a woman to like "basic," or "mainstream" things? Everyone is entitled to their own taste! Many girls know that they're often called "basic bitches" because of their style and interests, but they don't care. And that's why they're awesome.

The Reluctant Adventurer: The Year of Dating Totally Un-Dangerously

Friends: I, like millions of people across the country, have recently signed on to a dating site in an attempt not to die alone. If you can help me to avoid going on more dates with boring strangers who speak about themselves in the 3rd person, please introduce me to your favorite single un-crazy friend (or, your single friend who is f*cked up in a way that you believe complements the ways in which I am f*cked up). I appreciate your attention to this matter, and because you've taken the time to read this, I've included this photo of a kitten posing like a pinup girl for your viewing pleasure. Weird. Now back to your regularly scheduled posts about how much people love their lives and stuff.

10 Things That Have Never Been Said in Portland

Portlanders are a breed of their own. We're kale-munching, mountain-biking, beer-brewing hipsters and coffee snobs. Even in a culture as unique and quirky as ours, there are certain things that people just don't do.There are things that have never been said.  Conan O'Brien's reoccurring bit called "Things That Have Never, Ever Been Said," is the perfect example of what we're talking about. GoLocalPDX took a page from Conan's book and came up with our own sarcastic one-liners about things people in Portland would just never say.

Beach Blanket Commando: Dos and Don’ts of Oregon’s Nude Beaches

Portland has not one, but two officially designated clothing-optional beaches just a short drive from downtown: Collins Beach on Sauvie Island and Rooster Rock State Park, not far from the Crown Point Visitors Center (but far enough that looky-loos can’t see you with their binoculars). Truth is, there are plenty of places where people get naked in Oregon, like Portland’s infamous annual Naked Bike Ride, but that’s a slippery slope of legal rights, civil action and perceived intention that is best left alone when all you’re looking to do is tan your bum.  With an understanding that Oregon’s nude beaches attract large crowds each summer it’s important to know what is cool and not so cool at these sun-worshiping hot spots.

15 Types of Hipsters You’ll Meet in Portland

Portland isn't like other cities where you have hipsters and non-hipsters. In Portland, almost everyone is a hipster. How could you live in this city and not be? That being said, Portlanders don't fit into one stereotypical hipster box. Portland hipsters don't all wear Raybans and flannel and have art degrees from Lewis and Clark, only the "classic" hipsters. (See more on classic hipsters in the slides below). We are all so different from one another, the only thing we have in common is not being "mainstream." After a thorough and extensive investigation which we conducted called "Living in Portland," GoLocalPDX has broken down the main 15 different types of hipsters you'll meet here.

Bill Cosby and Rape: One Oregon Woman’s Perspective

 Until recently the stories of Cosby drugging and raping women were never developed or adequately disseminated and so the rumors remained on the shadowy periphery of American social consciousness, and ultimately, ignored. That is until SNL writer, and comedian, Hannibal Buress, also a black man, did a stand-up routine and called Bill Cosby out as a “rapist.” After the comedy routine, the media suddenly came alive with women willing to be interviewed and come out as rape victims of Bill Cosby. This was not the first time that had occurred though.

50 Books Set in Oregon

Portland is a creative, vibrant literary city, but the state of Oregon has always had a long and proud history of producing a mix of meaningful, intellectual, and commercially successful works of literary merit. Oregon has long been a source of inspiration for some of the state's most highly regarded authors. Ken Kesey, Ursula K. Le Guin, and William Stafford, to name a few, have all written novels and poetry rooted in Oregon's ideals, values, and landscape. As Pacific Northwesterners, we love our outdoors, and this extends to our writing as well. Many of Oregon's most prominent novels are evocative love letters to the Oregon landscape: its woods, coasts, rivers, deserts, and its people.

25 New Things Coming to Portland

Change is a good thing, right?
