Our city is a great place for artistic expression. What you may not know about is the comedy scene, which offers lots of opportunities for amateurs to test their talents in front of a live audience. If you’re a lover of comedy and want to see the talent right here in your community, attend one of these Portland comedy nights.
Portland comedy clubs host fun events every week to highlight these local comedians, as well as some national acts.
Many of these events are open mics, meaning people can come and perform their sets. If you’re interested in performing at any of these events, plan on showing up early to get your name on the list.
These events are meant for an adult audience. Since many of them are at local bars, they are 21+.
