    EARLY Portland- Comic Julie Goldman (does the Pacific Northwest)

    Funhouse Lounge

    Can you believe that despite a couple of brief flirtations with Seattle, Julie Goldman (HBO, Logo, Bravo) has never done a tour of the Pacific Northwest? It’s high time to change that. We’re taking her all up and down the I-5 corridor, taking her to the best Northwest clubs and showing her all the views.

    Julie Goldman's stand-up is delightfully in-your-face, honest and aggressively funny. Headlining throughout the US at clubs, colleges, festivals and events; she's been described as "unapologetically un-PC " by Go Magazine "a hilariously irreverent, butch lesbian" by Afterellen and Autostraddle writes, "watching someone be outraged has never been so fun"

    Julie has been seen on everything from "Bravo's The People's Couch", co-hosting "Vanderpump Rules After Show", and on LOGO's "Big Gay Sketch Show and Skit Happens."

    You can enjoy a little Julie with your politics, on the hit podcast "Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy" and make sure to check out her guest-starring role on the season premiere of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm!

    An evening of comedy with Sandra Valls
    through
    Funhouse Lounge

    ONE NIGHT ONLY!

    The New York Times reviewed Portland Queer Comedy Festival as, "My most enjoyable experience [about Portland]" And " The performances were more than punchy enough to stand up on their own — no controlled substances necessary" [Cheap Charms and Altered States of Portland, Ore -Travel 9-8-17] and now...we have the incomparable Sandra Valls coming back for one extended night of stand-up!

    ticket info: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3094031

    From Showtime, Nickoloden, BET to ABC; Sandra has made her mark on the comedy landscape.

    Curve says, "Sandra takes comedy to a new level."

    L.A Times writes, "Talented...Hilarious"

    Sandra Valls is a comic, actor, singer, writer, and badass. She is a funny, high energy, smart, sexy, outspoken Latina, best known for her powerful, electric, stand up comedy performances in Showtime’s, THE LATIN DIVAS OF COMEDY (nominated for an Alma Award) and PRIDE: LGBT COMEDY SLAM!, hosted by Bruce Vilanch (both available for viewing now on Hulu.com). Her unique mix of physical comedy and ridiculously brilliant story telling make it easy to see why the Los Angeles Times calls Sandra “Talented and Hilarious” as well as being voted one of the Top 33 Bad Ass Comics with Latin Roots by Latina Magazine, one of the Top 10 Funniest Lesbian Comics by Curve Magazine, one of the Top 100 Women We Love by Go Magazine, as well as one of the Top 10 faces to watch in 2010 by Diva Magazine.

    Under the Influence: All Trumped Up
    through
    Funhouse Lounge

    Under the Influence: All Trumped Up (mature audiences)

    In 2015 we created what was intended to be a workshop (9 performances over two weekends) of a new serial musical by Broadway lyricist Ernie Lijoi. However, we soon learned we had a successful show on our hands that would go on to win the 2015 Drammy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Actor in a Musical. So, we’ve “Trumped” it up, added some new faces, streamlined the designs, and we are proud to present Under the Influence: All Trumped Up.

    An unapologetically feminist, irreverent musical that tackles the influences that surround all of us by examining our hero, Anita: Anita Drink, Anita Smoke, Anita Cup, whichever Anita she is that day. Whether it’s Juan Valdez pushing us caffeine, Barbie giving us body issues, some cartoon character pushing nicotine, or our local bartender sliding us another drink, we’re all under the influence of something… yes, even Jesus.


    The OUTwright Theatre Festival - The mission of this Portland, OR festival is to celebrate contributions of the LGBTQ community to the art of theatre by staging both original and classic works thus creating an incubator of new theatre for and by the LGBTQ community.

    Funhouse Lounge - Where fun is our first name. Cocktails. Comedy. Draft. Theater. Improv.

    As you may know, Portland has a rich history of being pioneering.

The finest in local Portland’s Queer-identified comics!
