STORIES—Beloved storytelling series the Moth has raided its stables in New York and LA to bring some of its finest raconteurs to PDX. Or so we assume. No lineup's been announced, and you make inferences from the show's title—"Don't Look Back"—at your own peril. But this is the Moth. It's going to be good. DVH

COMEDY—Sure, Rob Delaney is the funniest person on Twitter, but how does that translate to real, live stand-up comedy? Pretty well, it turns out—Delaney's sharp, blue, and rather handsome, and he's got a rare knack for making hilariously graphic sex jokes without sounding like a creep. AH

Paul Constant has a great interview with Delaney over at The Stranger, in which he really opens up about depression, alcoholism, atheism, and all kinds of other heavy stuff in the interview. He said on Twitter that he'll be signing copies of his new book Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. after tonight's show.
Also tonight, comic Judah Friedlander is performing the first of three nights at Helium Comedy Club—you know him as Frank, the guy with the hats from 30 Rock, but he's an accomplished standup with a long list of TV and film credits (he's been on Sesame Street!). Judah is gonna give away a pair of tickets to tonight's show to whoever tweets at him by 1:30 pm today with the best reason why they should win. If you don't have Twitter YOU CAN'T WIN I AM SORRY. His twitter handle is @JudahWorldChamp.
