Dan Weber
Dan Weber
"Dan Weber grew up in a town where the high school mascot was the Cheesemakers, which is funny until you realize it’s actually grimly prophetic.

Dan has been many things, married, homeless, divorced, and dead for 15 minutes.

He still is some of them."
Marcus Coleman
Marcus Coleman
Originally hailing from St. Louis (a fact he can’t stop bringing up,) Marcus Coleman was named of Portland’s “Geniuses of Comedy” by the Portland Mercury in 2016 & Willamette Week's Funniest 5 in 2017.

A laid back shit-talker with a smile, he’s been called a “bright new star” and praised for “sharp, smart jabs on politics, family, and life as a black man” (Portland Mercury).

A among the cool venues and such he’s been lucky enough to perform are: Revolution Hall, 2017 Bridgetown Comedy Festival, 2017 SF Sketchfest, 2017 Pickathon Festival, and Helium Comedy Club; where he is a regular host and was named Dirty Dozen Roast Battle champion in 2016.

He hosts the raucous and unpredictable Midnight Mic every Friday night at Funhouse Lounge, and is a host and producer of You're Welcome at Mississippi Pizza and The Collabo at By The Collective, both of which were recognized by the Willamette Week as one of the city's Best New Showcases.
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.
Music by Minda Lacy
Music by Minda Lacy
Originally from Silver City, New Mexico, Minda Lacy has been creating music for nearly her entire life. She started playing guitar at eight, learning songs and writing her own. Her head was filled with Joan Baez, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin. Her placenta was made of the sticky fabric of the forgotten dreams of Bob Dylan. Her mother is half space alien and she once lived in a hole in the ground. All of these have impacted the musician she has become.

Minda is a lyrical, astute singer/songwriter, in the tradition of the blues and Americana, influenced by punk and classic rock. Her lyrics walk a fine line between philosophical meandering and verses so insightful they cut right to the atriums of the heart. Her work is a contemplation of just how hard it can be to connect with people, and how vital that is. It speaks to the ways we try to figure out who we are in the first place, and the reasons we are even here at all.

After first moving to the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2012 Minda lived in Olympia Washington for three years. During her time in Olympia she played with punk musicians, rockers, and other singer songwriters, and began to refine her own musical interests. Now based out of Southeast Portland, OR, Minda has been focused on her solo work as well as several collaborations. The most prominent of these is a reformed iteration of her original New Mexican rock band, Bitches in the Beehive, which has been described as “a folk rock band with vaguely morbid psychedelic undertones and a light-hearted sweetness reminiscent of a cool breeze blowing through a chinchillas belly fur.”

In fall of 2015 she released her first solo album, Owl Faces, and her second EP Worms in October 2017 on Outfield Records in Olympia.
