Adam Pasi
Adam Pasi
Adam Pasi is a loud and boisterous comic from Portland, Oregon He has appeared on Portlandia and performed on the Bridgetown, Limestone, Big Sky and Wenatchee comedy festivals. Often intense but never taking himself too seriously, Adam is clearly having a good time whenever he is on stage. He figures if his audience manages to have a fraction of the fun that he is then they're doing preeeeetty good.
Amanda Arnold
Amanda Arnold
As soon as Amanda Arnold gets on stage, you're ready to laugh. Her brilliant, fast-paced, honest and commonsensical style earned her a bi-monthly show at Helium Comedy Club in her hometown of Portland, Oregon where she is a regular having the privilege to work with brilliant comics such as Bert Kreischer, Nikki Glaser, Jay Pharoah and Nate Bargatze just to name a few. Amanda was named one of the “Top 5 Funniest Comics” in Portland by the Willamette Week in 2016 and is a two-time winner of PDX Dirty Dozen Roast Battle. She has also been selected to showcase in the All Jane Comedy Festival, Idaho Laugh Fest, Bridgetown Comedy festival, Laughs on Fusion as well as featuring and headlining all over the Pacific Northwest. Amanda produced a comedy festival; the Undertow Comedy Festival in Lincoln City, Oregon April 2018 featuring comics such as Ron Funches, Jeff Dye, and Judah Friedlander. She did stand-up comedy for the first time when she was eight years old! Yes! You read that correctly! It's no wonder you get a feeling when watching her that some people are just born funny.
Becky Braunstein
Becky Braunstein
Called a “hardcore comedy critics’ favorite” at the Idaho Laugh Fest by the festival’s director, who “never had that kind of feedback before from so many people about the same comic,” Becky Braunstein is a fast-rising standout performer with fresh energy and wide-eyed enthusiasm that is impossible to ignore. She grew up on a mountain in Alaska where she had no one to talk to, moved to Portland after being diagnosed with metastatic thyroid cancer and coming close to losing her voice forever - but she didn’t lose it, and now she won’t shut up. Becky was an audience favorite at the prestigious Big Sky Comedy Festival and Bridgetown Comedy Festival, was selected to perform in the IFC Comedy Road Tour Showcase at the All Jane Comedy Festival, and has also performed at the 208 Comedy Fest, the Beast Village Comedy Festival, the Idaho Laugh Fest, Pickathon, the Golden Spike Comedy Festival (selected for 'Best of the Fest'), the Siren Nation Festival, NW Women’s Comedy Festival, and the Hudson Valley Comedy Festival. This year, she also performs at Hell Yes Fest. Winning 3rd place for ‘Best Comedian’ in the Willamette Week’s 2017 Best of Portland, and selected for the Portland Mercury's 2017 'Undisputable Geniuses of Comedy', as well as Helium Comedy Club’s 2015 ‘Best of Portland’, Becky performs regularly at Helium Comedy Club, Curious Comedy Theater, and hosts a spectacular monthly comedy show called 'Becky with the Good Jokes'. She studied at the same acting school as Liam Neeson, and has a specific set of skills - which include illustrating #FatAnimals, being able to lip-sync the entirety of ‘Pehla Nasha’ from the 1992 hit Bollywood film Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, and demolitions.

Hosted by Andie Main
Andie Main is a Portland based comedian who just completed moderating and writing the show A Town Hall with Paul Ryan starring Chris Fairbanks, which toured in midwestern swingstates the day after Paul Ryan announced his retirement. There is no possible reason that Paul Ryan retired other than him having seen the tour posters. When she's not delivering satirical democracy to the people, she keeps busy by producing/hosting The Doug Fir Lounge's summer series The Cool Kids Patio Show, and her monthly series called Revolution Comedy, which organizes fundraisers for progressive causes like Planned Parenthood, The ACLU, and Don't Shoot PDX. At this bizarre moment in our nation's history, her efforts have contributed over $10,000 to #theresistance. She just added a weekly brunch show to her roster, Egg Riot! at The Night Light Lounge.

Festival credits include Bridgetown., The Comedy Exposition, repeated appearances at SF Sketchfest and The All Jane Comedy Festival, The 208 Festival, Bumbershoot, Seattle Sketchfest, Portland Pride, Treefort Festival and Cromfest. She has recently performed for sold out crowds at UCBeast, UCB Chelsea and The Stand Nightclub in NYC, and esteemed shows in LA like Put Your Hands Together. When in Portland she is a fixture on the NW circuit and a regular at Helium Comedy Club.

In her spare time she enjoys taking hikes with her not-so-smart dog, pizza, making weird art, nature documentaries and yelling about the patriarchy.
