    The Pride of Portland! Also really interested to see what the rooftop shows would be like.

  45. Michael Moreno July 28, 2016 at 1:55 pm #

    What they said ^^^

    But really, saw Ian briefly when he did a cameo at Funhouse Lounge. Def would like to see a full set. Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  46. Aurelia July 28, 2016 at 2:17 pm #

  49. Jessica July 28, 2016 at 2:48 pm #

    My partner and I love watching comedy together and often catch our favorite stand up comedians when they come to town, I’d love to go to this show!

  50. Lea Anna July 28, 2016 at 3:27 pm #

    Sounds so fun

    What a show. This would be a memorable experience.

  52. Hilary P July 28, 2016 at 6:20 pm #

    Because Ian is Portand as Fuck. I want to see how fame has ruined him. Plus the danger of being on a roof. Kind of like a cruise ship without the water. Ian was in the Green Room when I did my first of three open mics at Helium Comedy Club. Isn’t that special?

  53. Robert G July 28, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

    It would be great to see this funny guy!

  54. Nasheena July 28, 2016 at 11:19 pm #

    This would make for the ultimate date night because my husband & I love to laugh until our tummies ache & we’ve never been on the roof top before. Please oh please

  55. Aby D July 29, 2016 at 11:00 am #

    Would love to go!

  56. Ryan July 29, 2016 at 4:45 pm #

  64. Shawn Sanders August 2, 2016 at 12:31 pm #

    My belly could really use a chuckle right now. Or a slice of pizza. Either or.

  65. Mark Ruibal August 2, 2016 at 1:10 pm #

    I can only imagine how beautiful the view is going to be on the roof of Washington H.S. while we celebrate 19 years of marriage with a well earned laugh thanks to

  66. Suzanne August 2, 2016 at 1:51 pm #

    Sunset on the roof plus a good laugh, sounds like heaven.

  67. T_dah August 2, 2016 at 2:53 pm #

    Dude is funny funny. Yep, we’re up for this!

  68. Claire August 2, 2016 at 3:17 pm #

    I’ve never had the chance to see Ian Karmel, and since he is one of the original portland comics I would love to have the chance to witness his act first-hand! Thanks :)

  69. Bobbie Bryan August 2, 2016 at 3:22 pm #

    Would be over the top in love to see these peeps!!

  70. gail August 2, 2016 at 4:18 pm #

    I need laughs!

  71. Marie Fisher August 2, 2016 at 6:00 pm #

    Where to begin? Ian Karmel is a comic genius in his own right, who works/has worked with comic geniuses (James Corden, Chelsea Handler, all of Portlandia).

  72. panda August 2, 2016 at 10:20 pm #

    love the rooftop at revolution hall

  73. panda August 2, 2016 at 10:34 pm #

    I need to laugh!

  74. Mollie August 2, 2016 at 11:12 pm #

    Miss Ian from the days of Chelsea and I have yet to check out anything at Revolution Hall. Pick me!! Pretty please?

  75. can I be John August 3, 2016 at 12:23 am #

    Because personal entertainment is an unaffordable luxury at the moment.

  76. K Dee August 4, 2016 at 12:22 pm #

    I saw him in the sweaty tent at Bridgetown Comedy Festival and he was amazing. It’d be fucking rad to see him do a full show!

  77. Vickie Moriarity August 4, 2016 at 12:37 pm #

    Laugh laugh laugh and fun fun fun

  78. April August 4, 2016 at 3:04 pm #

    Great venue, would love to see this gentleman!

  80. Tarik August 5, 2016 at 4:59 pm #

    I could use a laugh or two. Nothing would delight me more than this show!

  81. Ryan August 6, 2016 at 6:52 am #

    sounds fun

  82. Jake Dockter August 6, 2016 at 8:05 pm #

    I’m not gonna beg.
    But, maybe…

  83. Gabri Chodosh August 7, 2016 at 6:38 pm #


    My name is Gabri, and I’d really like a pair of tickets to this event. My girlfriend is coming to PDX from LA on Saturday. It’s her first time here during the summer and I’d love to show her a good time. It seems like going to an event on the rooftop of Revolution Hall would be a great way to introduce her to Portland’s nightlife. We’re poor college students on a budget and I want to surprise her with something cool.

    Anyway, really hope this works out! If not, I’ll be kinda bummed but I won’t tell her anything!


  84. Kelly August 7, 2016 at 9:55 pm #

    Yes yes yes please!

  85. Dan August 8, 2016 at 12:00 am #

    Portland’s finest

  86. Melissa Fowler August 8, 2016 at 10:46 am #


  87. Bret jarvis August 8, 2016 at 10:46 am #


  88. Judy Wiebe August 8, 2016 at 11:11 pm #

    Please send us to Revolution Hall to see Ian! We need a good laugh right now and he fits the bill perfectly! Many thanks!

  89. Tim August 11, 2016 at 10:06 pm #

    There will probably be a lot of sexy people there, and I am a sexy person as well.

  90. Susan August 12, 2016 at 4:46 pm #

    I’d love to take one of my DD clients, he LOVES comedians but is in a very limited budget, can never afford tickets. I love my job supporting I/DD folks live fuller lives by taking them into the community and helping them develop independent living skills~
