The I, Anonymous Show
If you’re looking for the most laff-tastic monthly comedy show in town, look no further than the I, Anonymous Show! Host Caitlin Weierhauser (Portland’s Funniest Person 2017) picks the craziest, most jaw-dropping anonymous submissions from the Mercury’s very popular column and blog, and then reads them aloud while gleefully dissecting them with a panel of funny smarty-pants. For those who like being shocked and laughing their bottoms off at the same time, you’ll love this show. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY
