That’s right folks! We have a new and improved menu chalked full of entrees, desserts, and drinks galore!

Wonderful, talented, intelligent Portlanders. We have two great, one-time only shows coming at you, both fresh off of the Fringe Festival.

On October 9th, Martin Dockery will be presenting his brilliant one-man storytelling show centered around how his life changed when he found out that his father had a second family in Vietnam and through the trip he took with his girlfriend to meet them. And really, the quality of this show needs no endorsement, seeing Martin has already won the 2009 FRIGID fest Audience Choice Award, the 2009 San Francisco Fringe Festival Best Solo Performance, the 2010 Orlando Fringe Festival Best of Fest, the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival Best Original Work, and much, much more. With storytelling gaining some major ground in the Portland theater scene, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to see one of the masters. The Surprise will be at Curious Comedy on Oct 9th at 8:00 pm.

Then, on Saturday, October 11th, Chase & Stacey: Joyride will take over the late night spot at 1o pm to give you an all around comedy show with improv and sketch and some musical flair!  While the improv ensures that this show is different every time, you can count on a non-verbally sexual encounter and the appearance of a redneck Rutabaga-Farmer. Having been honed, trimmed, and polished over the course of the summer through their participation in the Fringe Festival, Chase and Stacey are ready to give you something really special. To see the magic happen, come to Curious Comedy on October 11th at 10 pm.

Welcome us in welcoming one of Curious’ own Jay Flewelling to the stage in a double welcoming of this beautiful and hilarious feat of heart and storytelling.  With multimedia flair, Jay depicts his past experiences of literally counting money in a vault, being an angsty teen in a discount grocery store, and teaching health and life skills in Alaska among other various scenarios to show us that it is our work, and not our jobs, that define us. Jay even plays multiple characters from his dark and troubled past to round out the show to create a multifaceted display of all his talents! Essentially, Jay has all the multi’s on lock down.

Anyone who has had a job that completely, partially, or just sucked a little bit will be well represented by this show. If you don’t fall into any of those categories, we will just assume that it is because you have never had a job before and allow you to participate in the experience. If you have loved your job for forever, why don’t you just go do your job more instead of coming to the show!?! Just kidding, we are just super bitter! Hurray!

Still not convinced? Well don’t take our work for it! See what the Portland Mercury had to say about Work Shmerk: http://blogtown.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX/archives/2014/06/17/work-schmerk-will-totally-make-you-feel-better-about-your-crappy-job

Work Shmerk will be playing here at Curious Comedy Theater every Friday and Saturday at 8 pm from September 26th to October 11th. Tickets are $15 at the door and $12 online. Please plan on arriving fifteen minutes early to settle in and get comfortable, especially because we have such a snazzy bar with delicious food and drink!

That’s right! Portland’s best improvised musical is back from a limited engagement at Curious Comedy Theater!!! These performers have it all: beauty, talent, intrigue, and a lyrical license to kill! All they need is a couple of suggestions before they weave together an intricate plot that is tied together with flawless vocals that you make you think they stole them  from a mermaid who wanted to be where the people are. Seriously. Pipes is running from September 5th until September 20th, every Friday and Saturday night at 8 pm.
