Portland native Auggie Smith, who was on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" will headline opening week (July 29-31).

Helium Comedy Club is the newest addition to Portland's entertainment scene.

Helium Comedy Club is a state of the art venue that brings great talent to an intimate 275 seat theater. For a modest ticket price, patrons can enjoy live comedy from a national headliner performing no more than 60 ft away. Every seat is a good seat in this tiered comedy room which should be your place to go when you “Need a Laughâ¬Å¾¢”!

    I need a good laugh right now! I have been unemployed for over a year and need to cheer up!

  2. Nancy July 26, 2010 at 1:54 pm #

    Awesome to see this comedy club opening! I love supporting my hometown of PDX and going to the opening of the club would be Tight!

    … because there’s nothing better than spending an evening with a comedian who can bring out my inner cackle! (Saturday night preferred) :)

    As president of the CARROT TOP fan club. I demand free tickets to see the competition and rate them based on hair color, amount of props and body mass.

    cheers, ptr.

    ……because laughter is good for the soul. =)

    I NEED TICKETS! My boyfriend and I are poor and would love a date night that didn’t include hot dogs and redbox!

    Either night preferred! If it’s free I am NOT picky!

  7. Jackie July 26, 2010 at 5:49 pm #

    “Need a Laugh™”

    Indeed I do, any night would be fantastic!

  8. RossH July 26, 2010 at 8:40 pm #

    Please pick me!! I am a huge Auggie Smith fan!

  9. Mike July 26, 2010 at 9:29 pm #

    I would love to have tickets to Saturdays show….boy it would cheer me up. It’s been a tough year and I could use a laugh. First I had the roids and that lasted the first couple of months of the year. I could only sit for a few minutes at a time. Then came the lack of erection….okay I will admit I only got one while thinking about Thai ladyboys. I am sure if that is wrong or not.
    Then the diarrhea started, I think that was because I was so poor that I switched to PBR and it just acted as a laxative.

    But mostly the year has revolved my ass and I could use a good laugh to get my mind off my behind.

    I need these tickets to negate the terrible experience my bestie and I had at what has been the only comedy club in town for the last 10 years I’ve lived here.

    Luckily, the tickets are free, but you have to buy two items each and then suffer through bad food, weak drinks and overworked, rude waitstaff.

    Oh and did I mention the headliners weren’t really that funny…hiss! boo!

    I’d love to try out this new place and I hope against hope that they are heads and tails above what has been the only game in town.

  11. Anna July 27, 2010 at 2:31 pm #

    Woo hoo! I won! Can’t wait to check this place out!

  12. Jerry Ketel July 27, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    Oh, man! Give it to Anna. I can’t beat that.

    I’ll just go back to frying ants with a magnifying glass.


  13. Jerry Ketel July 27, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

    Actually, I meant Amber.

  14. Michael July 27, 2010 at 6:36 pm #

    I need these tix because I need an excuse to get out of going to a funeral.

  15. Joyce G. July 27, 2010 at 6:37 pm #

    Im an Auggie fan…you should get Thirdgill in there too :) plus my girlfriends and I need a fun new place to have drinks and laughs!!! It will be a win/win for us all ;-) Friday would be great!!!

  16. Jessica Legg July 28, 2010 at 9:59 am #

    I have a very important reason that I need to go, but its coded Class 4 confidential and I’ve been instructed not to share more information than that with the civilian population–other than to say that it’s urgent that I be there Saturday night.

    You could take the risk of not giving me the tickets, but why?

  17. Carl July 29, 2010 at 12:52 am #

    comedy tickets needed stat! if we dont get some funny business into him hes going critical. Get the paddles.. ooh wait that is for later in the evening…

  18. Jody July 29, 2010 at 9:20 am #

    I’ve been to Harvey’s a few times…I’d like to do a comparison of the 2 places. Would love to check it out on Friday.

  19. Roddy Jasa July 29, 2010 at 10:19 am #

    Im a sad clown and need a smile

  20. Ingo July 29, 2010 at 10:27 am #

    Comedy is great. Haven’t been to a live comedy in a few years. Would love to check this one out, it sounds great though.

  21. Stephanie July 29, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    so excited for this comedy club and for Maria Bamford!

  22. Mcbeerguy July 29, 2010 at 1:24 pm #

    It’s about time Portland had a big time comedy venue. Gimme tickets!

  23. Beth July 29, 2010 at 1:40 pm #

    I love Auggie! And would love even more to see this show! Thanks PDX Pipeline :)

  24. Benjamin July 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm #

    I would like to go because once you go to Harvey’s, they suck you in by calling you every day for the rest of your life trying to get you to come back with free tickets, yet charge you $10 for a show (MINIMUM DRINK PURCHASE). Lame.

  25. Laura July 29, 2010 at 2:05 pm #

    Bring on the laughs!

  26. mark holan July 29, 2010 at 2:37 pm #

    I need a good laugh this weekend as the month of July has been a train wreck for me. It would be a perfect way to end this month and begin a better August and belly laughs are just what the doctor ordered. Thanks

  27. Claire July 29, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    I’ve been waiting for this! I love stand up!

  28. Diana Griffith July 29, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    Helium is EXACTLY what Portland needs. We are a cerebral city with a wicked sense of humor. We are voracious readers and need the written word and spoken comedy. I would love tickets to a Saturday show.

  29. dana r. July 29, 2010 at 3:20 pm #

    hi there. would like to see Maria Bamford, does not matter which night. wanna go cause she is hilarious.!

  30. christel42 July 29, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    I can’t wait to come down for a show! Portland is in dire need for a new comedy club, and one in SE to boot! Hell, I could stumble home from there! My other half worked at Harvey’s for 5 years, and he would love it if I could surprise him! Honestly, I would go any night if you wanted to give me tickets! Thank you, and I am primed for a good time!

  31. Jenny July 29, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    Hi there. My birthday is Friday, July 30…I am going to be 44. I am thinking turning 44 needs some laughter vs. bawling, don’t you? I thought so…the Friday show would be the perfect solution. Thank you!

  32. Suzanne July 29, 2010 at 3:41 pm #

    What better way to spend an evening than to be used as a tool for a comic??? I’ve only been to one comic and must say it was funny. I hope this guy picks people out of the crowd and uses them for our comedy pleasure. Would love to have tickets to find out. Thank you.

  33. Sharissa July 29, 2010 at 3:42 pm #

    I need some dedicated laugh time!

  34. Tina July 29, 2010 at 3:44 pm #

    I’ve never been to a comedy club and with 6 kids, my husband and I could use a night out!!! I’d love to see the Saturday show!!!

  35. Jaime July 29, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    It’s my long-distance BF’s last weekend in town and I’d like to surprise him with something fun.

  36. Josh C. July 29, 2010 at 3:48 pm #

    I’ve seen the Harvey’s show, which has its shortcomings (mainly the venue), so it’s now time for a little comparison and competition! I’d love to attend Saturday night too. Hint Hint.

  37. Angel July 29, 2010 at 4:01 pm #

    My doctor says I should laugh more because it’s good for my health. Can you help me out? :)

  38. Mindy July 29, 2010 at 4:22 pm #

    I’m unemployed, broke, and could use a night of laughs with some friends and maybe make new one! Saturday would be great!

  39. Sara July 29, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

    Oh, baby, gimme some of that sweet funny love! Give the gift that keeps on giving. I would share it with the universe!

  40. Sarah Holt July 29, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    laughter is! the best medicine ^_^

  41. Melody Axe July 29, 2010 at 4:52 pm #

    I am a laugher from way back. Been doing it for years. What a perfect combination, me at a comedy show and hey doesn’t winning the tickets make it that much funnier? Laughter samples sent upon request.

  42. mark fields July 29, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    We need to laugh our Asses off so please pick me !!!

  43. Heidi July 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm #

    Laughter is my all time favorite activity!

  44. shane July 29, 2010 at 5:18 pm #

    My life is so not funny I could use a laugh. Seriously.

  45. David Moss July 29, 2010 at 5:23 pm #

    I’m always extolling the experience of going to a good comedy club, yet I have found Portland lacking. I’ve been anticipating this opening for MONTHS and I live down the street… MATCH MADE IN HILLARIOUS HEAVEN
    (Friday, I suppose, though I’d love tickets for either night)

  46. Kim D July 29, 2010 at 5:31 pm #

    This would be great for a much needed night out!

  47. Jeff H July 29, 2010 at 5:39 pm #

  48. Rb. July 29, 2010 at 5:39 pm #

    Pick me! Pick me! I can’t wait to see the club. I’ve heard such good things about the PA one.

  49. Joe July 29, 2010 at 5:56 pm #

    I love it when we sit in the front and my wife always ends up being the centerpiece of conversation/ridicule, all in good fun of course!

  50. Erin July 29, 2010 at 6:22 pm #

    Laughter is good medicine and I need some medicine!! A good smile would help too.

  51. patrick hyde July 29, 2010 at 6:33 pm #

    I would love to go to a good comedy club!
    I regularly go to another comedy club and would love the opportunity to visit a new venue for laughs!!!

  52. Nick July 29, 2010 at 6:54 pm #
