Join comedian Chris Fairbanks (Comedy Central, Conan, TruTV) as we explore what would happen if Paul Ryan actually held a town hall like he’s supposed to. Come with your own questions and comments on the state of the GOP and the KGB in Trump’s America, the night will start with stand up comedy from Andie Main and Chris Fairbanks.
Please note: This is a seated show.
Originally from Montana’s Big Sky Country, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Chris Fairbanks headlines comedy venues internationally. His fast paced, quirky, and constantly improvised act has been showcased on Comedy Central, Conan, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Seeso.
For TruTV, Chris was a cast member and director of World’s Dumbest and the host of Almost Genius. He’s been featured on @midnight w/ Chris Hardwick, FOX’s (very similar) series Punchline, and the film Punching Henry, starring JK Simmons. Chris also has upcoming appearances on HBO’s Crashing, Amazon’s One Mississippi, and Comedy Central’s Corporate.
Chris’ comedy album, Fairbanks! was named one of Amazon MP3’s Top Ten. He also hosts the popular podcast, Do You Need a Ride, with Karen Kilgariff on All Things Comedy. They shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in a ’08 Honda Accord mobile sound studio. Chris is also self-employed as a freelance artist, illustrating for magazines, skateboards, album covers, etc.
Andie Main is a Portland based comedian who keeps busy by producing/hosting The Doug Fir Lounge’s summer series The Cool Kids Patio Show, and her politically themed series called Revolution Comedy, which organizes fundraisers for progressive causes like Planned Parenthood, The ACLU, and Don’t Shoot PDX. At this bizarre moment in our nation’s history, her efforts have contributed over $10,000 to #theresistance and although she is a life long punkrocker, is stoked to see these shows selling out regularly.
Festival credits include The Comedy Exposition, repeated appearances at SF Sketchfest and The All Jane Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Seattle Sketchfest, Portland Pride, Treefort Festival and Cromfest. She has recently performed for sold out crowds at UCBeast, UCB Chelsea and The Stand Nightclub in NYC, and esteemed shows in LA like The Rabbit Hole and Put Your Hands Together. When in Portland she is a fixture on the NW circuit and a regular at Helium Comedy Club.
She is a regular feature for comedians like TJ Miller, Myq Kaplan and David Huntsberger and after the shows they’ve all said “hey Andie that was great!” and got brunch because you can order brunch whenever you want in Portland.
In her spare time she enjoys taking hikes with her not-so-smart dog, pizza, making weird art, nature documentaries and yelling about the patriarchy.
Rana May’s deadpan delivery, absurdism, and fascination with science make her comedy stand out like a shoe on a pizza. Rana was persuaded to try stand up comedy after doing “informational speeches” at backyard barbeques and in basements. Her background is in social work, dog rescue, parking lots, and used book stores, where deadpan is considered a strength.
Rana has been featured locally in the City Pages, Star Tribune, Minnesota Daily, MPR, and was picked as one of five comics to watch in by Growler Magazine. You can see her performing all over the Twin Cities producing and hosting PSSY CTRL and MRDR ROOM. She’s opened for Maria Bamford, Kyle Kinane, Jonah Ray, Mary Mack, Tim Harmston, Neil Hamburger, David Bazan and way more musicians and comedians.
Rana is the winner of the House of Comedy Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest and has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Crom Comedy Festival, Chicago Comedy Exposition, All Jane Festival, Hell Yes Fest, and 10,000 Laughs and will be at the Memphis Comedy Festival and Bird City Comedy festival.
