About Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of our 6 seasoned storytellers is randomly drawn. To determine the random prompt for their story, they will spin the giant game show wheel. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part… each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

The audience votes for a winner at the end of the night. The winner also draws an audience winner to receive over $250 of booty from our sponsors and partners including a betsy + iya $25 GC/pair of earrings, $100 Popina GC, tickets to Helium Comedy Club, polish from Claws Out, $20 to Powell’s, and more plus bragging rights for life!

    We try to comedy in a podcast from time to time. Would love to see actual professionals doing it well.
