Portland's reputation for comedy continues to grow, with upcoming shows featuring a diverse array of talent. Don't miss the awesome talent at Jen Tam's "Am I right Ladies?" July 19 (and every third Saturday) and Whitney Streed's Weekly Humor Night at Tonic Lounge, which runs every Wednesday through August 27.
"Am I Right, Ladies?" is a monthly stand-up set produced by local comic and visual artist Jen Tam. As the name suggests, comics in the show aim to provide a hilarious antidote to racism and sexism. Without a home after the closure of one of Portland's few all-ages venues, Backspace, the show has found a new home at Ford Food and Drink, and runs every third Saturday.This month's comics include: Katie Rose Leon, Christian Ricketts, Dinah Foley, Sister Brattney, Katie Nguyen, Manuel Hall, Tim Ledwith, and Ash Casteman, plus music by the ethereal female-fronted two-piece Oro Azoro (https://www.facebook.com/oroazoro).
