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.

Caitlin Weierhauser

Caitlin Weierhauser spent her childhood in an Ewok tree fort with a rubber band cross-bow, her wolf, and a budding resentment of The Man. She grew up to be a tantrum-prone queer, feminist, vegan liar that creates safer comedy spaces and is never happier than when she's mad. 

Caitlin is a member of Lez Stand Up and has performed at All Jane Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, and Bridgetown Comedy Festival. She was included in the AfterEllen list of "40 Hot Queer Ladies in Comedy," and plans to take down the patriarchy by Christmas.

Alex Falcone

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 StoneVOXBoing 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.

Phil Schallberger

Phil Schallberger is a comedian from Portland Oregon. He's recognized as one of the most unique and uncompromising comics in the Pacific Northwest and has been featured in the Seattle Sketchfest, San Francisco Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, TBA, and Hell Yes Fest. Mixing his years of experience with formal stand-up, sketch, and improv, Phil is able to weave in and out of multimedia, character, and sketch performance to create a distinctive solo-sketch show which has been regarded favorably by many. If you’re looking for something new that combines all your favorite elements of comic performances, Phil Schallberger is the guy for you.

If that's not what you're looking for, might I recommend the comedian Kevin Hart.
