You should probably quit comedy not because of your hot body but because you can't write for shit and nobody know wtf any of this means.
bill wilbur - you're stupid
The bulk of comedy hosts in town are women, which you would know if you were paying any attention and not just spewing pointless sexism, you fucking dolt. And we are so proud of you for speaking out anonymously. So brave.
Also Midnight Mass at Funhouse Lounge MAY POSSIBLY feature one of the comedians mentioned above and it is free! :-D
As a female comic who just moved here from San Francisco, I don't feel shunned by Helium and the crowds in Portland are great. If I DID for some reason feel like this post were true, I wouldn't stop trying to get work anyhow because I love doing comedy and it will always get you further to tune out assumptions about booking choices as you just try to get good and confident about performing. I think Helium's a lovely club with great crowds so far and this is not just me kissing up.
If you are angry with Helium about their booking choices, perhaps you'd be better off writing them a measured email and mentioning some lady comics around town you really love, LIKE ME AMY MILLER, instead of posting anonymously to the Mercury like a passo-aggro jerk. In fact, if you really dislike Helium so much and you want to see female comics perform in portland, maybe you could just support any number of fantastic shows happening around town every night that have very mixed lineups, many of which are hosted and run by women! LIKE the following shows with ME, AMY MILLER.
TONIGHT! At Funhouse Lounge with Dave Hill. Ten bucks! 8pm!
Tomorrow at Fly Ass Jokes at The Brody Theater 10pm!
Next Thursday 3/28 with Ron Funches and Anthony Lopez. TWO SHOWS at Mississippi Studios!
