Comedy is OK has not been an active show since 2011. Both of the comics mentioned no longer live in Portland.

The article does indeed only scratch the surface: not one mention of the Brody Theater, a fixture in Portland for 18 years and home of three different standup shows: the twice-monthly Fly-Ass Jokes, (which the Mercury has called one of the city's most reliably good showcases, and was co-founded by Ian Karmel, who made his final Portland appearance there last week); also Comedy Bull and 7 on 7, both produced by Anatoli Brant at the Brody.

Don't forget about Gresham's hottest Bi-monthly comedy showcase, Grand Slam Comedy Show brought to you by ChileShits ComedyZone, hosted by The Drip every 8th Wednesday at 2pm at Draggles strip club. $4 cover, unlimited chicken fingers on the buffet and the best acts in town, regularly featuring fat midget puppeteer The Big Little Shy Guy and the quirky impressions of Todd Rimlicker, the 2010 Limerick King of Portland East of 121st.

Yay, Anthony Lopez and his TMNT bit killed me when first I heard it. He's the bee's knees.

Go see Sean Jordan and hope that he tells his rollerblading story.
