From our partners at Helium Comedy club:

Helium Comedy Club located at SE 9th & Hawthorne welcomes John Heffron from “Last Comic Standing” on September 23rd-25th. Showtimes are 8pm with an additional 10:30 show on Friday and Saturday. Tickets range from $15-$30.

John's attraction to excitement and his personal vow to never perform physical labor have both inspired and motivated his successful career. The endless list of credits comprises his impressive resume and highlights many significant accomplishments. He not only won the second season of NBC's Last Comic Standing, but was also a finalist in the subsequent season. Heffron's amusing and extensive material has earned him two separate half hour specials on the hit stand up show, Comedy Central Presents and he has become a regular on numerous VH1 satire series including I love the 80s: 3D, I Love the 70s: Volume 2, and My Coolest Years: My First Time.

In addition to being featured on Thom Filicia's Dress My Nest, Heffron has performed on CMT's Coming to the Stage, NBC's Late Friday, and Comedy Central's Premium Blend. He has made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborne, and E!'s Chelsea Lately and 101 Craziest TV Moments. John is no stranger to live audiences and has taken the stage at several prestigious comedy festivals including the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal and the HBO Comedy Festival in Aspen. John even had the recent honor of being a celebrity roaster for KISS' Gene Simmons on an episode of A&E's Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.

    Would love to surprise my wife Saturday night at 10:30. She is a big fan.

  9. Richard Pedersen September 23, 2010 at 11:54 am #

    My wife & I are celebrating our 18th year anniversary on Sunday Sept 26! Saturday at 10:30.

  10. Jared September 23, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

    The last really good stand up show that I went to was at the Comedy Cellar in New York on a family vacation where they sat just my mom and I three feet from the mic. Amazingly funny night, Judah Friedlander, Sarah Silverman, Jim Norton, Colin Quin, etc, but needless to say, the comedians were pretty relentless when they saw what they had in the front row.

    I’d love to check out the Helium on Friday at either 8 or 10:30 and enjoy a show where I can be a little more relaxed.

  11. Blake September 23, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    Because helium comedy club Is awesome!

  12. matt September 23, 2010 at 1:54 pm #

    Because as a broke, recently graduated college student the recession, and poor job market have adversely affected my bank account, thus rendering me and my friends income disposably challenged (pretty sure that’s a word) and unable to attend a show at your great establishment.


  13. matt September 23, 2010 at 2:04 pm #

    Totally forgot…

    10:30 on Saturday, but will take what I can get.

  14. Dylan September 23, 2010 at 4:39 pm #

    It’s been too long since I’ve been to a comedy show, I’ve never been to the helium comedy club, and this dude is hilarious! Friday @ 10:30 please!

  15. Johnny September 23, 2010 at 4:51 pm #

    8 pm on the 25th!
    I’d love to attend. What perfect way to start Fall with laughter in one’s heart and the joy of the season ahead after such a dismal Summer! Perfect way to start the Season ;)

  16. HelenKate September 23, 2010 at 4:58 pm #

    Ooh ooh ooh! Thanks for the chance to win! The boyfriend is moving to Oklahoma in a few weeks, so I’m needing a chance to laugh, and would love to have a nice date out with him. Never been to Helium, but I would love to go to any of the shows you have tickets for. I adored John’s bit on punching cereal boxes closed — did you see that when he was on Last Comic? Too funny! Thanks again!

  17. HelenKate September 23, 2010 at 5:00 pm #

    D’oh, you want a specific time probably…how about Friday at 8? :D

  18. Andrea September 23, 2010 at 5:01 pm #

    A night of laughter is much needed and long overdue. Friday – 10:30 or Saturday – 10:30

  19. Charika September 23, 2010 at 5:04 pm #

    Because I never win anything and I could really use a good laugh (or 2 or 3) right now!

  20. Bret September 23, 2010 at 5:04 pm #

    I’d like to go Friday at 8pm, because I’ve never seen this guy and think it would be fun.

  21. Brynn September 23, 2010 at 5:24 pm #

    I’d love to win for Friday or Sunday because it was my husband’s 48th birthday on Wednesday and all the birthday presents I got him were really lame: running shorts, a tie (because I messed up his one nice one), and a meat cleaver (because nothing says “romance” like cutlery). This is all ripe material for Mr. Heffron to make fun of should we be in the audience, and it would help me to appear less lame as a wife – at least in my husband’s eyes. I would suddenly be that person who wins things.

  22. Brian September 23, 2010 at 5:44 pm #

    Would love to take my wife out on a nice date! Last weekend we were suppose to go to the comedy club but I was so exhausted that we ended up not going. She was a champ about it–I’d like to make it up to her! 8pm on Saturday would be best, but we’re available for any free openings!

  23. free September 23, 2010 at 5:46 pm #

    i want to go friday at 8 because i haven’t been to helium yet and recently heard it’s great.

  24. Andrea September 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm #

    John has cracked us up on last comic standing and since i am not making much money now, we don’t do / go anywhere fun – winning these tickets would be an awesome way to release some stress, especially for my very supportive husband. Saturday at 8 pm would be the perfect time for a comedy date.

  25. Chris September 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm #

    Me and my friend have been wanting to go to a comedy club for a while now. I am a fan of last comic standing and would love to go to this show. Plus I’d rather spend my $15 on beer.
    Saturday at 10:30 would be best but I will take anything.

  26. Simone castro September 23, 2010 at 7:03 pm #

    Would love to see my personal favorite comedian on last comic standing at the top of his game please ease my woes and send me downtown!!

  27. Karli September 23, 2010 at 7:03 pm #

    I would love to go to a comedy show! Never been to the Helium

  28. Diane September 23, 2010 at 7:18 pm #

    Never been to Helium; early shows are great!

  29. Jen singer September 23, 2010 at 7:54 pm #

    Ever have one of those weeks that it’s been hard to even crack a smile? That’s been this week. It’s been a challenge and darnit, I deserve a laugh. Saturday night please.

  30. Jen singer September 23, 2010 at 7:55 pm #

    Late show Saturday night per my above comment. Thanks so much.

  31. Tara September 23, 2010 at 7:59 pm #

    8pm friday….because my boyfriend really wants to go and there are no more tickets left to buy! He works way too hard and deserves some laughs :) Plus I never win anything….

  32. dan September 24, 2010 at 5:22 am #

    OMG!!!!! That sounds perfect. Last minute bachelor party on Saturday. Yeah Laser is getting married, now there’s a name that begs some improv jokes.

  33. Wm. September 24, 2010 at 10:43 am #

    Sadly, in a smelt trawling accident off Long Beach, WA, I severely injured my funny bone and was forced to have it removed. Now, it is impossible for me to find anything funny. 30 Rock? She’s nerdy and cute, but no laughs. Star Wars kid? Just sad. Rickrolls? Meh.

    Comedic therapy is all that will help now. Won’t you help? Send me to Helium tonight (Friday) 10:30pm. It’s the right thing to do.


    • Wm. September 24, 2010 at 3:28 pm #

      I won. Awesome.

      Maybe now I can once again know what it’s like to shoot beer out my nose in laughter.

      Never forget.

  34. Matt Shoobridge September 24, 2010 at 1:18 pm #

    John is the man! 10:30 Saturday! Thanks!

  35. Aaron September 24, 2010 at 1:31 pm #

    I would love to win – I can attend any of those performances, best would be the 8pm saturday

  36. Nathan Jimenez September 24, 2010 at 1:34 pm #

    The reason I would like to attend is because I like to laugh and I have a great laugh so it would be great to add tot he laughter of the audience lol.

  37. Karla September 24, 2010 at 2:32 pm #

    I need to win because I can’t go to the bars anymore dammit! Would rather have some sober laughs!

  38. Richard Pedersen September 24, 2010 at 4:19 pm #

    Thanks for the tickets!

  39. Carl September 24, 2010 at 4:27 pm #

    Why not?
    Friday 8:00

  40. Angelina Blanchard September 24, 2010 at 5:59 pm #

    I would love to win tickets for the 8pm show on Saturday. I think John Heffron is hilarious. I have seen his shows on comedy central, watched him on last comic standing, and have his game That Guy Game. I can honestly say that he is one of my favorite comedians. I would really like to win and take my boyfriend so he will be a fan of John Heffron too.

  41. Kym September 24, 2010 at 6:03 pm #

    I so want to check this place out! Saturday @ 10:30
