The 2nd Annual Cannon Beach Comedy Festival brings a cavalcade of stand up comedians to the stunning Oregon coast, June 15-16th. The festival is produced by the nonprofit Tolovana Arts Colony and made possible by a Tourism and Arts grant from the city of Cannon Beach.
Thanks to their support, tickets super cheap, just $20 for the whole weekend, and there's no comedy club traps--no drink minimums. Plus you get to hang out in Oregon's best beach town, just 75 short miles from downtown Portland.
I know. I can't believe it either.

I’m Alex. I’m a comedian and writer living in Portland, OR. I’ve been on the IFC show Portlandia a handful of times and I’ve appeared at bunch of comedy festivals including Bridgetown, Bumbershoot, Sketchfest, and the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. My writing has been quoted in Rolling Stone, VOX, Boing Boing, and been featured on the front page of Reddit. I also wrote a young adult romance novel called Unwrap My Heart about a girl who falls in love with a sexy mummy. Publisher’s Weekly called it “unfortunate.”
And one time, Salt & Straw even named an ice cream flavor after me (“Chocolate and Falcognac”) and it was delicious. Despite these modest accomplishments, I’ve somehow remained totally down to earth and approachable.
