Its Festival Time, and Whiskey Tango is stoked to be starting it off right here at home! This Thursday, May 8th, the gentlemen will be hosting our very own show at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival here in Portland Oregon. Curious Comedy Theater will be opening up with a fully improvised musical, PIPES! Then we will be taking it home with a full 45 minute set. Oh this is going to be great!!
But it doesn’t stop there. Remember last year when we sold out our show at the Los Angeles Improv Comedy Festival? Well we’re going back this year and we’re in a bigger space at a better time… how’s about 9pm on Friday in the Del Close Theater at iO West. We’re excited to get back down there and show LA how Portland do.
Oh my goodness gracious! Things have been a veritable Tohuvabohu since getting back from San Francisco. Our Sketchfest sets were top notch, I would say they ranked up there with some of the funnest sets that we have had. That’s why I love these gentlemen, they always show up with a little something extra in the tank for the big shows. Oh and speaking of big shows, check out our schedule for some big local shows coming up in February!! And while you’re at it, keep your peepers peeped for news about the brand new Stumptown Improv Festival.
In the words of the Smashing Pumpkins, “Tonight, Tonight…”
Tonight Whiskey Tango presents the First Improv Comedy night at Helium Comedy Club in Portland Oregon. This show is going to be amazing. We will be joined by Improv super group, Administration, and avant garde standup comedians, Tim Hammer, Christian Ricketts, and Don Frost. The goal is to pack the house and give Helium no choice but to make this a recurring monthly show. I guess that makes us Comedy Revolutionaries, spreading laughs “by any means, nescessary.”
Tonight – January 22nd 8pm
Helium Comedy Club (1510 SE 9th Ave, PDX, OR 97214)
$10 at the door, or order ahead at https://center-stage.seatengine.com/shows/14546
Be the change…
Who’s Jimmy you ask? “Jimmy” is the stage adaptation of the brainchild of Whiskey Tango Gentlemen Gabe Dinger and Leon Anderson. Come see “Jimmy” this Saturday (tomorrow), 10pm at Curious Comedy Theater. And while you’re at it you might as well check out the 8pm show, Pipes!. Its an Improvised musical with special guests Chase Padgett and Mike Carr. If you go to that show you get into the 10pm show for free. Just Say’n.
What a way to start off 2014. We picked up another show while we’re down in San Fran. We’ll be performing with Endgames Improv on Friday January 24th, 2014 @ 10:30pm. Now you really have no excuse not to make it to a show.
Happy New Year from the Gentlemen of Whiskey Tango!

Saturday night at Curious Comedy Theater is going to be ridiculous. First at 8pm is Flying Fruitcake, a Holiday Revue. Then at 10pm is Mixology: Duos Night and holy crap its a great lineup. JoAnn Schinderle is hosting and 3 amazing two person improv groups will perform: Balrog (featuring Jake Michels and Sam DeRoest), PhotoNegative (featuring Nathan Loveless and Leon Anderson), and Katie (featuring Katie Michels and Katie Behrens).
