10th Annual NW Women's Comedy Festival

Who will be the next break-out female comedian, the next Tina Fey or Amy Schumer? Well, she might just appear on The Richard E. Wildish Theater stage this year at the 10th Annual NW Women's Comedy Festival! This showcase of the best female comedians in the northwest includes a fabulous combination of hysterical emerging comics and some all-time favorite funny women.

This year's event is hosted by Portland comedian Grace Sadie Cejas and will feature Kathleen Cremonisi (former ostrich-rider and Deadhead and current author of Love in the Elephant Tent), Dinah Foley (semi-finalist in Portland's Funniest Person contest), Penny Glass (tied for first place in the 2015 Eugene Laff Off), Leigh Anne Jasheway (hot off her hot-flash show for the Red Hat Hoot at 3 Rivers Casino), Virginia Jones (appearances include the Boston Women's Comedy Festival, Austin's Ladies are Funny Fest, and six episodes of Portlandia), Andie Main (hosts Curious Comedy Theater in Portland), Beth Pinkerton (recently opened for nationally touring comedian Jen Kirkman), Bri Pruett (one of Willamette Week's Funniest 5 Comedians in Portland), and headliner Susan Rice, who has opened for and performed with comedians such as Richard Pryor, Milton Berle, and Robin Williams.

Tickets are available at wildishtheater.com and are $25 each.
