Ring-a-ding-ding: It’s announcement time! I want to thank 3rd Street Pizza Company’s Moonlight Theater, Langer’s Entertainment Center, and The Willamette Valley Comedy Club @ Keizer Homegrown Theatre for partnering with PNW Comedy to help crown this year’s Western Oregon Comedy Competition Champion! And I want to give a shoutout to The Reel Hollywood Video for always supporting live comedy in and around McMinnville. And without further poo poo, I’m excited and honored to announce this year’s full lineup of the Western Oregon Comedy Competition!
November 12th – Salem/Keizer First Round – Willamette Valley Comedy Club @ Keizer Homegrown Theatre:
Temple The Bard
November 16th – Sherwood/PDX Metro Area First Round – Langer’s Entertainment Center:
Gina Marie Christopher
November 20th – McMinnville First Round – Willamette Valley Comedy Club @ Moonlight Theater (Inside 3rd Street Pizza Company):
At the end of every First Round show, everyone in attendance votes on who they think had the evening’s best performance. The three comics that receive the most votes in each individual heat will move on to The Finals on December 14th at Langer’s Entertainment Center in Sherwood. (All comics have 5 to 8 minutes. Doing less than or more than the allotted time may result in disqualification.)
December 14th – Langer’s Entertainment Center – Sherwood, OR
And what happens next? The nine comics that moved on from the First Round shows will be invited to The Finals on December 14th! Exactly like in the First Round shows, after all the comics perform that night a vote will take place asking who had the evening’s best performance. The comic that receives the most votes gets the cash, future bookings, and the title of the 2021 Western Oregon Comedy Competition Champion!
All shows start at 8 PM and run for approximately two hours (which includes the show and the voting). All shows are for ages 18 & up except for at nights at Langer’s Entertainment Center, which allows for ages 21 & up. Tickets can be purchased online at PNWcomedy.com and Eventbrite, with any remaining tickets available for purchase at the door. Online tickets will be seated first. For more information and all the rules (it’s really basic; masks mandatory, no hate speech, show up early, don’t go over on time), visit www.PNWcomedy.com/wocc/.
