Standup Comedy in Portland - Sklar Brothers and msalt

I'm going to be hosting a week at Helium Comedy Club. Headliners are the Sklar Brothers -- regular guests on ESPN Sports Center, & former hosts of Cheap Seats on ESPN. They've appeared on many TV shows including Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Grey's Anatomy (where they played conjoined twins). Also, they're funny. (Edited so it doesn't disappear before the last show Saturday) [more inside]

Bye Bye Lutoslawski

So Lutoslawski's leaving town to go do something kind of awesome. He's leaving some time around 6 October or so. I think we should have a beer or four or more to send him on his way. Me, I'm out of town from tomorrow through 29 September, so I'm proposing we get together somewhere (Green Dragon? East Burn?) on the weekend of 30 Sept / 1 Oct / 2 Oct. Are you fuckers in or out?

Team MeFi Trivia?

Update: Tuesday's trivia is on at the Cruzroom, but we are still trying to find the best "everyone can make it" night / location.

My friend is behind ShanRock's Triviology and I just had a chance to compete last night at the Cruzroom off Alberta. Which has led me to the conclusion that we might want to try and put together our own Trivia team (or Teams) and compete. Would be a good excuse for a weekly outing.

Bridgetown Comedy Festival - Tabor Lounge I Showcase

Jon Daly (Jon Stewart, Conan, UCB, SNL)
Solomon Georgio (Seattle)
Don Frost (Portland)
Paul Jay (LA, Biggest Mistake podcast)
Marianne Sierk (LA, Live at Gotham)
Keith Lowell Jensen (famous atheist)

Hosted by Mark Saltveit (Metafilter, palindromes)

Solomon Georgio (lanky, very clever queer Ethiopian Seattlite) and Don Frost (blue collar stream of consciousness improv) are brilliant. I haven't worked with the other comics.

Bridgetown is one of -- if not THE -- best comedy festival(s) in the U.S. 180+ comics in 120+ shows at several venues along Hawthorne Street over several days (April 21-24th, 2011.) Plus long-form improv, sketch and live podcasts. These are the best "comics comics", not necessarily the Seinfelds and Chris Rocks', but some will get famous and all are doing great work right now. Margaret Cho, Andy Dick, Doug Benson, Oscar Nunez, Jimmy Dore, and Hannibal Buress you might know, but also don't miss Kyle Kinane, Kristen Schaal, Brent Weinbach, Moshe Kasher, Hari Kondabolu, Nick Thune, Auggie Smith, James Adonian, or Don Frost either. [So as not to be overdo it, I'm editing this first event to cover the show I'm hosting on Thursday night, at 10pm. ] [more inside]

Thanksgiving dinner potluck for PDX "orphans"

I figure since I consider Thanksgiving to be a great excuse for me to go nuts cooking anyway, I'd see if there are any local Mefites who are - like me - at loose ends family-wise and have no other plans for Turkey Day. My apartment can probably accommodate about 8 people comfortably, but if the response is greater than that and someone has the means (and willingness) to host a larger gathering, that's cool too. We can figure out the exact logistics and time but what I had in mind was an afternoon+early evening potluck sort of thing.
