pp protest?

About a mile south of the theater on MLK there is a Planned Parenthood being built. While at the theater today we witnessed a protest march going down MLK against Planned Parenthood. The thing that struck me as funny about the anti Planned Parenthood protest was a sign one person was carrying which read, "Planned Parenthood Promotes Pills, Promiscuity and STD's".
Really? I'm all for standing up for what you believe in, but come on... try to be smart about it. Planned Parenthood Promotes those things? and STD doesn't even start with the letter P. Try harder next time.

the Birthday Train

Happy Brrrthday Manuel Hall! Current Fit To Print castmember and Dopamine fixture, Manuel Hall celebrated his drrrtieth birthday with us on Friday. There was a great Fit to Print show, followed by a roast for the man of the hour. Nate Smith was out of town, so I was asked to host the event. I'm normally not one for hosting, but it is next to impossible to turn a guy like Manuel down for anything he requests. A lot of great people came out and said a lot of great things about one of the most kind and hilarious people in Portland.
Happy Birthday Manuel. We're happy to have you as a part of the Curious Comedy Theater!

Midnight Sausage

This week the Curious Comedy Theater was honored to host not one, but two special appearances by Portland's premier formal wear improv/dance troupe Midnight Sausage. David Saffert and Kathryn Durkin amazed the crowds on Thursday and Sunday night with their longform improv broken up with old-timey dancing.
Do yourself a favor and catch Midnight Sausage the next time you see they're performing!

Mayor Ex Machina: LIVE!

Sam Adams officially took office on January 1st, but was sworn in today - Monday January 5th. After getting knighted (or whatever it is mayors do) he bustled over to the Curious Comedy Theater to deliver a speech for NNEBA (North Northeast Business Association). Seeing as how the Curious Comedy THEATER (not club) is located in Northeast Portland - they keep it in the neighborhod. It was a great event! Sam Adams gave an inspirational speech and set out his goals for his first 100 days as mayor. Portland has a great plan laid out ahead. I'm hoping it all comes to fruition.
