Improv, sketch comedy, stand up comedy

Tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door. Featuring a combination of unique premises, scathing self-exploration, and a touch of the absurd, Portland native, Dusty York, found his way to comedy via twenty years of playing and producing music. In 2016 he recorded his debut live comedy album, “Helicopter Penis... and other nightmares”, and will soon be recording his second album, "Strawberries in your Mouth". He tours nationwide and will be relocating to New York this Spring. A former staple of the Wilmington, North Carolina comedy scene, Lydia was a regular opener at the Dead Crow Comedy Room, host in the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, writer/cast member for Wilmington's live late night talk show, Late Fear with Wills Maxwell, and host of the monthly stand-up showcase, Sips & Giggles. Now a new and unique voice in the Portland comedy community, she is quickly becoming a sought after entertainer, performing throughout the the Pacific Northwest. Lydia's comedy is dynamic, smart, and absurd, frequently pulling audiences out of their comfort zones and into her universe. She has been a part of the She-Devil Comedy Festival and North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, and has performed with some extremely cool comedians, including Jay Pharoah, Mary Mack, and Arj Barker.
