This show would be amazing to see live and I’ve been knee deep in nursing school, starting enemas, rectally administering meds, irrigating sacral wounds… So lets face it- i need to switch it up. Female comedians equals mental and orfice cleansing! Thanks!!!!

  37. valerie October 8, 2015 at 11:04 am #

    My wife and I are so excited to actually be in town and have no commitments during this comedy festival. Every other year, we’ve been unable to see any of the acts. We love the Portland comedy scene and we’re excited to see some of our (non-local) favorites (Karen Kilgariff!, Sarah Burns!). We’ll looking forward to the laughs!

  45. Pam October 8, 2015 at 3:27 pm #

  60. ruth parvin October 8, 2015 at 6:51 pm #

    Have only been to see male comedians–and wanted to walk out half way though all the stories about peeing and shitting and farting… I have a feeling that women might have more interesting, less scatalogical routines.

  61. Hilary A October 8, 2015 at 7:47 pm #

    Totally need an excuse to use my last five Poise personal incontinence pads.

  62. Kim October 8, 2015 at 9:44 pm #

    Girl power!

  63. Amy October 8, 2015 at 10:12 pm #

    This would be fantastic!

  64. Morgan October 8, 2015 at 10:56 pm #

    I have always had a dream to do comedy but the way female comics have traditionally been treated kept me from ever doing it. For the first time females are being taken serious in comedy and it is brilliant. I would love to see some hilarious ladies for some inspiration. I have not been on stage in years and I have kids now. But they make for good material, right?

  65. Lani October 9, 2015 at 12:27 am #

    Yes please
    I wanna laugh my a$$ off!!

  66. Anthony October 9, 2015 at 7:51 am #

    Yesssss! Been meaning to go to this the last couple of times but never made it. Would love to finally see a bunch of these great women comics!

  71. Rhonda October 9, 2015 at 2:27 pm #

    As a lady who loves comedy, winning would give me 5 days to be inspired to be funnier.

  72. Brad October 9, 2015 at 2:58 pm #

    So I was looking around the store for deodorant, and finally asked the clerk for help. She said… The ball type? I said no, it’s for my under arms.

  83. Heather October 11, 2015 at 11:50 am #

    All of these commenters are perfectly lovely people, I’m sure, and for that reason I’m positive they’ll collectively clap when they hear I’m the winner of the tickets. Tis my 40th birthday, after all – go ahead, email me the great news…I’m waiting with ‘bated breath!
