“Offbeat,” “unexpected” and “clever” are just three of literally hundreds of words used to describe the comedy-style stylings of Steven Wilber. Since starting stand-up in 2011, Steven has risen up in the Portland comedy scene to become a frequent performer at arcade bars, anarchist bookstores, Doctor Who-themed seafood restaurants and other typical comedy venues this city has to offer.
Steven has shared the stage with Chris Hardwick, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Sean Patton and Ron Funches…whether they wanted him to or not. He has performed at Bumbershoot, the Savage Henry comedy festival, has been featured on Bryan Cook’s Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction podcast, and is a writer for The Spicy News web series.
He also has over 23,000 Vine followers, which he’s been told is a good thing to include in a bio.
Jeff Oliver is a filmmaker, comedian, musician and writer. He has previously appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, on Fox News’ Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld, NPR’s Tell Me More, on numerous podcasts (including Jon Reads The Paper, Nobody Showcase and Truckers Shuckers Freaks & Geeks). Even as a question on the radio quiz show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me.
Jeff is a former writer for the web series The Spicy News and a former guitarist for the short-lived band The Arcadians. He co-directed, wrote and starred in the comedic short film ‘Meta Feta’ which appeared at the DaVinci Days Film Festival in 2010.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest he currently lives in New York City where he is directing his first documentary feature, A SUMMER TO DISCOVER: The Story Of Buck’s Rock Camp.
He is a contributor for Savage Henry Magazine.
A spry up-and-comer in the Portland, OR comedy scene, Danny’s comedic style contains elements of storytelling, and surrealism; all in the name of shedding light on the hidden absurdities the universe chooses to dump on him.
Felts has been featured on IFC’s Portlandia, and Oregon Public Broadcasting’s “Art Beat”. In addition, he has also performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival (2012-13), the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival (2012-13), the 2013 Savage Henry Comedy Festival in Arcata, CA, the 2013 Salt Lake City Comedy Carnivale, the 2013 Cleveland Comedy Festival, and most recently the 2014 New Orleans Comedy & Arts Festival.
When he is not performing, he can be found editing the wildly popular/masochistic web series, The Spicy News, which he is also a contributing writer to. He performs regularly around Portland, Seattle, and Northern California.
Danny’s comedy is like Iceland. Obscure, layered in an array of sweaters, and breathtakingly beautiful.
Dave Thomason is a comedian, writer, and sweetheart. He was recently named a Comic to Watch by Comedy Central. He has performed at several festivals across the country including the SF Sketchfest, New York Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival. You may have heard him telling jokes on NPR’s “Snap Judgment”. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Dave can now be seen performing regularly at venues all over Los Angeles.
