Laughterglow Returns to Weird Bar Thursday

Posted by Ryan Prado on Feb 15, 2011

There’s nothing funny about Laughterglow – Weird Bar’s monthly showcase of new comedy – taking a month off. But if Portland’s funny folk shave their way, they’ll spend all night Thursday making it up to you.

Southeast’s premier inclusive club Weird Bar – formerly Southeast’s premier lesbian bar the Egyptian Room – serves up veterans of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Helium Comedy Club, Portland’s Got Talent, and more this Thursday, February 17 starting at 9 p.m. Between emerging stand-up, sketch comedy and music, the options for sating the blues on a rainy Thursday seem to be in good order, dontcha think? But who’s gonna be there? ROLL CALL!

Stand-up will be handled by Virginia Jones (Women in Comedy Festival, Bridgetown, Bumbershoot, Helium Comedy Club), Anthony Lopez (Portland Amateur Comedy Competition), and Iris Gorman (Brody Theater). Enjoy sketch comedy by Tactics Ogre [Jimmy Newstetter (Bridgetown) & Christian Ricketts (Bridgetown)]; and music by the always great Annie Vergnetti (Portland’s Got Talent).

Laughterglow will set you back just five American dollars, and is for those 21 and over.

Pete Ellison can stop lording it over me!

Finally.
