Portland Queer Comedy Festival is a first of its kind, multi-day, multi-venue queer-performer focused comedy festival. Portland Queer Comedy Festival is a collaboration between Andy Barrett, owner of Funhouse Lounge and Belinda Carroll; a long-time queer activist, writer, actress and stand-up comedian. Featuring 5 stages and over 40 comics, Portland Queer Comedy Festival aims to bring the best and brightest talent in international LGBTQ stand-up comedy to a beautiful, diverse and inclusive Portland, Oregon; while giving back to the local community that supports us through non-profit initiatives.
We have invited some of our favorite comics including;
- Guy Branum (TruTV’s Talk Show The Game Show, The Mindy Project, Billy On The Street)
- Julie Goldman (Big Gay Sketch Show, The People’s Couch on Bravo)
- ANT (Last Comic Standing, VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club)

A portion of the festival proceeds will be donated to local and national nonprofits, and fund drives during the festival will support our nonprofit community partners. This inclusive festival will involve comics from the spectrum of the LGBTTIQQ2SA alphabet, and yes, we’ve included our funniest allies too.
