As you well know, PNW Comedy has had to cease nearly all operations in order to fully comply with the governor of Oregon’s social distancing order. And while this was difficult, we know that taking this break away from the public is the right thing to do in order to make sure everyone has the ability to come out to a show when it is fully safe.
But, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to make comedy things happen in the meantime! Before COVID, August was when the Oregon Comedy Competition was going to swing into full gear; we had planned seven shows across the state in Bend, McMinnville, Medford, Forest Grove/Hillsboro, Portland, and Eugene. Unfortunately, live shows in these cities will not go on as planned. But! We have the next best thing planned… LIVE ONLINE SHOWS with real audiences!
PNW Comedy is happy to announce that the Oregon Comedy Competition this year will be all online and will have a Grand Prize of $600. As always, there will be NO SUBMISSION FESS and the winner will be chosen by the audience!
And how is PNW Comedy doing this? We’re partnering with one of the top Facebook comedy networks to distribute this competition online across the nation… and the world! Submissions open August 1st with more news to come in the following days.
Thanks for supporting live comedy and we’ll see you all soon with some jokes!
