Kevin Pollak has captured the attention of audiences worldwide with his range of both dramatic and comedic roles. He has appeared in over sixty films, as well as countless television projects, and has established himself as one of the few stand-up comedians to have a successful dramatic film career. In addition to his acting talents, he has also proven himself as both a writer, producer and recently a director and a talk show host.

Pollak first started performing stand-up comedy at the age of ten. He became a touring professional stand-up at age twenty. In 1988, shortly after Kevin shot his first HBO stand-up special, he landed a role in “Willow,” directed by Ron Howard and produced by George Lucas. In 1989, he got his first dramatic acting role in Barry Levinson's “Avalon”, but it was Pollak's role in Rob Reiner's “A Few Good Men,¬Â opposite Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore, that proved his ability to stand out while sharing the big screen with dramatic heavyweights.

    Would LOVE to attend either of the Friday performances! Have lived in Portland just over a year now and haven’t gotten to Helium yet – this would be a great intro!

  2. EJ March 28, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    I want to see Kevin Pollak!! Willow was awesome and he was awesome in it

  3. Anthony Subia March 28, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    I work at a care home in which I worked 96 hours last week and 68 hours this week. I am saving up to go and see my daughter, but can really use the time off. I am a huge fan and really want to see him at my favorite venue in Portland. I’d like to be able to have the sat 7pm tickets since I work graveyard that night : )

  4. Ronnie March 28, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    I wanna see I wanna see!! I just loved his performance in Dr. Dolittle 2!

  5. Andy Caron March 28, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Pollack is the only actor from Grumpy Old Men I haven’t met,I would like to cross it of my bucket list Friday @930pm. Good day.

  6. Michael Smithling March 28, 2012 at 11:32 am #

    I’d love to see Kevin Pollack Saturday night at 7pm. The Usual Suspects is my favorite movie of all time and I loved him in it.

  7. andrew deyoe March 28, 2012 at 11:32 am #

    Kevin Pollak has been one of those recognizable faces that I can never really put a name to until now. This guy has made me laugh on The Drew Carey Show when it was around, and his roll in Red State his role was enjoyable to watch. If I could see Mr. Pollak performing, I’d like to see him on Friday, as it would be not only enjoyable but a great way to finish Spring Break before the weekend.

  8. Adrienne March 28, 2012 at 11:32 am #

    I don’t care which show I go to, but I’d just love to go!! I have 5 children, work full time and don’t get to go out much. Mainly because I can’t really afford to spend money on anything other than my kids!! Please, pick me, pick me!!!

  9. Matt Eggert March 28, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    I’d love to go see the Thursday 8pm show. Kevin Pollak is hilarious! I should win because I’m not affraid to admit that my favorite movie that he’s in is House Arrest… Yeah that’s right… I said it! House Arrest! BOOM!!

  10. Chris March 28, 2012 at 11:37 am #

    I would love to introduce my son to Helium, and Kevin Pollack is the perfect comedian for the occasion. And speaking of occasions, it’s my birthday this weekend, so this would be a bonus! Thursday show would be my preference, but I’m open to any tickets available :)

  11. Josh A. March 28, 2012 at 11:38 am #


    Seriously… have you ever seen Pollak’s Shatner? It’s unmatched! I’d love to see him and would be happy attending any of the performances.

  12. Don nutt March 28, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    I have had a terrible week and could really use a good night of laughter

  13. Judi Young March 28, 2012 at 11:42 am #

    My husband is on disability, I’m on Social Security and we have no money to go out anywhere. We were one of the first to support your new comedy club and have been there two times. Love Kevin Pollack and would love to see him anytime, any night! Thanks, Judi Young

  14. Joe M. March 28, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    I Love Willow!!Any performance will work for me thanks!

  15. Kellen March 28, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    I’m Kellen and I’ve been tweeting the hell out of @kevinpollak to no avail. I’d love free tickets because I’d promote the hell out of my night at Helium Comedy Club on 89.1 KMHD-2.


  16. kwong March 28, 2012 at 11:55 am #

    He looks really funny. Could go Friday at the later performance.

  17. Kim Hale March 28, 2012 at 11:58 am #

    Would love to go either night! I LOVE Helium and have gone to several shows over the last year. Would be awesome to see yet another hilarious show for free! :)

  18. Laura March 28, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    Would love to surprise my boyfriend with tickets to the Thursday performance!

  19. Hilary Andriesian March 28, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    Hey PDX Pipeline. Thanks for reminding us what a fun city we live in! And Helium Comedy Club takes PDX fun to higher giddier heights than we’ve ever had. I would love to get a huff of this fun for Thursday night (although any show is cool.) And I would love to see Kevin’s Shatner impersonation…that’s right up there with cowbell and peanuts and Depeche Mode. I just can’t get enough.

  20. Oliver March 28, 2012 at 12:10 pm #

    He would be hilarious to see! Thursday night works for me

  21. Matt March 28, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    You want the laughs?! You can’t HANDLE the laughs!

  22. Tony March 28, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I’m in!

  23. Kandise March 28, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

    This would be the PERFECT congrats to my better half who just received a huge promotion yesterday! He has spent the past 3 months working so hard that we have rarely even had the chance to have a “date” night together. I’ve done my best to be understanding and it’s paid off however, I still struggle getting him away. He LOVES comedy and he wouldn’t have a choice if we won tickets but to enjoy a nice evening out. Last summer we went to a show at that other comedy shop across town that we won’t mention. He enjoyed it, but I would love to be able to tell/show him how much better Helium Comedy Club is!!! Please give us the pleasure of enjoying Kevin’s hilarious Thursday night show!

  24. Peter Morrison March 28, 2012 at 12:33 pm #

    I would love to surprise my wife with tickets to see Kevin Pollack at Helium. It’s been a tough couple months for us and we would really enjoy a night full of laughs.

  25. Nathan Lattanzi March 28, 2012 at 12:44 pm #

    Would love to attend this Friday’s performance! Been wanting to see Kevin live for a long time now. Been a big fan since his performance in Usual Suspects! And I think he does some outstanding impersonations – especially of Christopher Walken!! Thanks for the opportunity to win these tickets. Even if I’m not chosen. :)

  26. Treva E March 28, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    OOooohhh la la this would be fun!!! I love you Helium and sure would appreciate a little Spring Break gift ;)

  27. Adam Rolin March 28, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    Would love to see Kevin…always has an intresting take on things and the impressions are dead on..

  28. Ryan March 28, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    Laughter is the best medicine. I could use some Saturday night.

  29. Andy March 28, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    Because his Christopher Walken impression brings joy to my otherwise bleak life.

  30. Andy March 28, 2012 at 1:14 pm #


    Either of the showings on Friday night would be great.

  31. Ralston March 28, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    I’d like the tickets because I love live comedy and haven’t been able to go for a long time. Kevin Pollak is pretty damn funny, so I’d like to add him to the list of comics i have seen live. I’d make it happen so I could see any of the shows, but would prefer Saturday if possible. Thank you.

  32. Dan Wheeler March 28, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

    I’d love to see his bad-ass William Shatner impersonation!

  33. Margaret March 28, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

    I would go “The Whole Nine Yards” to see Kevin Pollak. Of course, there might be a “Deterrence,” to be one of the “Few Good (Wo) Men who get to see him. But I, being the “Willow(y)” woman that I am, would find this to be an great way to “End Of (My) Days” on Thursday and Friday if I found out that I had won tickets to see this great actor, director, and stand-up comedian!!!

  34. Edgar Barrera March 28, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    My mom took me to Willow when I was 6! Any show will work

  35. Leonard March 28, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

    Wanna hear his Johnny Carson

  36. Travis March 28, 2012 at 8:27 pm #

    I’ll laugh so hard my hernia will resurface, making my belly button do it’s best turkey thermometer impression. Pop!
    Friday at 7 or 9:30 would be great. I’ve already reserved time in my calendar, so don’t disappoint the belly button!

  37. Kim March 28, 2012 at 8:39 pm #

    I would love to take my son who is home from college for Spring Break to this show. He just turned 21 and hasn’t had the opportunity to see a show like this. He loves Kevin Pollack and this would be so much fun to see! Either Friday show would be great but will take any show if we are chosen.

  38. Kamie Stevenson March 28, 2012 at 9:17 pm #

    We’d LOVE to go see Kevin Pollack and get our laughs’ on! We deserve it for getting thru this week without stabbing anyone lol

  39. tina March 28, 2012 at 10:26 pm #

    My boyfriend and all his buddies have a bachelor party. Need
    Something fun too this weekend with my girlfriend

  40. Robert March 28, 2012 at 10:27 pm #

    Just looking at this guy makes me laugh! Was tremendous on Drew Carey and really liked his work on “Willow”. Surprised he is at Helium instead of another venue, but the club is perfect for stand up – and Pollak is a “stand up” kind of guy.
    Would love to see him live.

  41. tina March 28, 2012 at 10:28 pm #

    My boyfriend and his buddies have a bachelor party this weekend. Need something fun for me and my girlfriends to do.

  42. kemic March 28, 2012 at 11:09 pm #

    I really want to see some comedy on mushrooms! Two guys gave me an my friends a 2 hour improv comedy show onetime while we we on them and to this day it was one of my funniest moments of my life, and that was 14 years ago. I want to relive that feeling. I have some ready to go so please, I would love it if you gave me tickets! Thank you!

  43. Jessica Wahl March 29, 2012 at 2:48 am #

    I’d love to end my spring break/ birthday month with a good laugh from Kevin! All this Portland rain is too depressing… And Helium is an awesome venue! Friday shows are preferred, but I could make Thursday work too =)

  44. kianne March 29, 2012 at 8:42 am #

    I would love to go to the friday show, need a good laugh away from the basketball that has been on the tv the last 2 weekends :)

  45. Sandy March 29, 2012 at 11:50 am #

  67. allison l March 29, 2012 at 10:54 pm #

    I am in desperate need of a good laugh this weekend. Let me tell you why. I work at the Boys and Girls club in N. Portland and all week long I have been working to give them a fun filled spring break. The worst part is coming home to see all of my college friends enjoying their spring break at the beach. Real life is hard. And that’s why I want to have reason

  68. allison l March 29, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    To laugh! I want to see the Saturday show!

  69. Emily March 29, 2012 at 11:07 pm #

    I was JUST talking about this show to a friend! And here it is. I would love to win tickets to either Friday show. Please.

    Okay, rain for months straight. I KNOW this event is jist what the doctor ordered. Wish me luck.

  71. Terry Baker March 30, 2012 at 3:57 am #

    I need to laugh to get rid of the rain blues. I’d really like to go.

  72. Juli March 30, 2012 at 6:39 am #

    I’d love to go Saturday at 7!

  73. jimbobber March 30, 2012 at 7:54 am #

    I’d like to win tickets for Friday night even though Kevin’s picture on this post is a little, red “x”.

  74. Chris March 30, 2012 at 11:15 am #

    I have never seen a live stand up comedy show and I have always wanted to go to the Helium Comedy Club. This sounds perfect!
