As a fan on a thread said, «If this is the first day, I can't imagine the rest of the shows!»
We are so excited to bring you Thursday's programming for the 2nd Portland Queer Comedy Festival! Our very first show of the weekend, has one of our favorite comedians headlining 7pm at the Funhouse Stage, Riley Silverman!
Highlighted by VICE for her “wry observational comedy, radical openness, and casually inviting demeanor,” Riley Silverman has been seen on Take My Wife, Comedy Central’s Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, and headlining 2017’s Portland Queer Comedy Festival as well as the All Jane Comedy Festival. Her debut comedy album, Intimate Apparel, was a #1 best seller on Amazon. Riley is the head writer for the International Waters comedy panel show podcast, was a body diversity model for the fashion brand ModCloth, and was listed as one of 100 Queer Women We Love by GO Magazine, and “10 Women Comedians Who Smash the Patriarchy” by The Culture Trip.
