Imagine this: live stand-up comedy meets light-hearted dodgeball. Intrigued? We thought so. Introducing Ball Pit Comedy, a unique comedy show happening tonight in the heart of the Willamette Valley at Keizer Homegrown Theatre.
So, what’s this all about? We take soft plastic play pit balls, the audience’s ability to toss them onstage, and combine them with some amazing stand-up comedy for a night of laughs you’ll want to participate in time and time again! Did you like the joke? Show your support and toss a ball. Didn’t like a joke? Toss a ball. Need some more candy? Throw a ball, ya baller! This one-of-a-kind event promises an evening filled with non-stop laughter and fun from start to finish.
What is Ball Pit Comedy? While the comedians are on stage, the audience will have their chance to distract them by tossing soft ball pit balls at them! When should you toss a ball? Did you like a joke? Toss a ball. Did you not like a joke? Toss a ball. Need a drink of water? Toss a ball! End of the comic’s set? TOSS ALL THE BALLS! It’s a lot of fun and the laughs are guaranteed!
Doors open and seating begins at 6:30 PM. Tickets cost $15 through Eventbrite to be able to toss the play pit balls or $20 on the day of the show at the door. (So get those tickets ahead of time!) And hey! There’s also a FREE Ticket option for those of you interested in just seeing the shenanigans. The show is located at 980 Chemawa Rd NE Keizer, OR, on the second level. The Willamette Valley Comedy Club is an independent enterprise producing shows within the space.
Featuring comedians Katy Ipock alongside some up-and-coming fresh faces from Bend, plus some of your PNW Comedy favorites!
PNW Comedy is excited to bring Cory Michaelis to the Willamette Valley on Feb 3rd and 4th!
After teaching high school for 12 years, Cory Michaelis “retired” to do comedy full-time because he wanted to try out both of the lowest-paying jobs in America.
Cory has a Dry Bar Comedy Special -“Bad Teacher” – that snagged over 75 million views. His debut album, “The Collage Dropout,” was released by 800 Lb. Gorilla Records and charted at #2 on iTunes & Billboard (because it was the only album released that week). Cory has been seen on the TV show “Laughs” for his stand-up comedy which aired on FOX. In addition to headlining comedy clubs all over the US and Canada, Cory has taken his act global, doing tours in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Pakistan.
Both nights feature a duo of opening comics coming from central Oregon- Katy Ipock and Carl Click. Katy Ipock is a force of raunchy aunt comedy and she currently hosts and produces stand-up shows out of Craft Brewery in Bend. Carl Click, whom some might remember from his years at KGW in Portland, cleverly combines stand-up and musical comedy for a memorably funny performance.
Plus Special Guest Grace Sophia! Hosted by Jordan Cerminara on Friday night in Keizer and by Jared Richard on Saturday night in McMinnville.
