Portland's Comedy Exodus

Local Stand-Ups Are Increasingly Decamping for New York and LA. What Does That Mean for the Future of Portland Comedy?


I love Sean and Amy, but I'd like to also point out we're also losing Kristine Levine and Veronica Heath for Arizona. Kristine and Veronica have been in the scene for 10 + years. I wish you would write about them, or have included them in this article. Huge losses for the community. We're going to be missing a couple of unicorns.
If local comics are so good, they'd be selling out the Schnitz for big bucks. Let's just see if they come back on tour and manage to pull that off. If worse comes to worse, they can make better tips driving cab in the big city, anyway.
