Watching hometown hero Ian Karmel blossom into an Emmy-nominated writer and beloved stand-up on the national scale has been a feel-good story for the ages. In the past year, his weekly All Fantasy Everything podcast has become the perfect sandbox for honing his quick-witted referential material, and it’s a constant reminder that he is one of the funniest comedians working today. The title of his latest hour, “30 Minutes About Trump, and Then 30 Minutes to Make You Forget About Trump,” gives you a general outline of what’s on the agenda for tonight, but with an added multimedia element up his sleeve, expect Karmel’s playful and rapid-fire delivery to get extra weird and wonderful. Throw in a supporting set from fellow beloved Portland comedy export, Sean Jordan, along with plenty of boozy holiday vibes, and you’ve got all the makings for what’s sure to be one of 2017’s most memorable shows.
