Two Years In

I can't believe the theater has been open for two years now... well, almost two years.
We were building it up two years ago this very weekend. It's kind of crazy to take a minute and look back at all the work we have done for this theater.
After two years in still neither of the cool Portland newspapers (WW or Mercury) have done any sort of story on us, but we're doing just fine. Every month we're improving as far as ticket sales and reputation, as far as I can tell.
It's a struggle, but a fun struggle.
We're getting these T shirts printed soon.
Stacey and I have developed a two person sketch show called Tandem (our group is Jean Louis) and we'll be performing it in Austin at the Out of Bounds comedy festival in September.

Overall, things have been great. There is a lot of stressed involved in running a comedy theater in a town where there is no comedy, but people like us. I think everyone is doing a great job and I see nothing but good things for the future of the Curious Comedy Theater.

Over a year later.

What a crazy year it's been. We've made a lot of people laugh, lost a few bartenders, made a bunch of new friends and made even more people laugh. We couldn't have done it without the support of all of our friends, coworkers and castmates. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful 2009 and here's to making 2010 even bigger!

big weekend

After opening a month ago, we got our liquor license and had our first weekend with plenty o' bar sales. It's nice to have almost everything in place, especially something like that (which will help us raise the money to get everything in place).

The Liberators kicked off their rental this weekend (Friday nights at 9:30) bringing with them the School Of Rock. Both the School of Rock and the Liberators had great shows for an awesome crowd. Thank you very much to both groups! (this is the crowd of over a hundred people, taken by my camera phone in a dark room)

Getting cozy

Somebody is becoming more and more comfortable at the theater. We finally got a way up to the mezzanine that ISN'T an ugly ladder. I'll post pictures of it soon.

Election Viewing Party

We held an election viewing party on Tuesday night and the energy inside our space could have powered Las Vegas twenty times over. We had a lot of press and a good amount of people sitting and watching with anticipation. Thank you to everyone who came out to watch and celebrate history being made. I didn't get many good pictures of the event (as you can see) Better event pictures can be seen here Curious Comedy Theater website Blog
but I did get a few the day after, while cleaning up.

Halloween Weekend

So far, our crowds are were a little light - but the shows were great.
Stephanie had a showing of a different show she's in at a different theater, so Kathryn (assistant director) stepped in to play her parts and did a GREAT job. We were a little loosey-goosey with the scenes, which made it more fun for both us performers AND the audience (I hope). The Sam Adams musical was also a lot of fun - with the cast performing in costumes, but not forcing the costumes to influence their characters. It was an excellent show.
We still have another showing of both Will Work For Change and Sam Adams, Sam Adams Mayor Ex Machina tonight - as well as Sometimes Toilet Water on Sunday at 2pm and POP! at 7:30. Catch POP! while you can, because it's gone in two weeks!
