Slingshot returns to Portland Center Stage March 29-30

Bad Reputation Productions, the Portland comedy power house that never sleeps, is back. This exciting company launches new acts faster than a Portland cop racks up overtime.

And they are damn good (the comedy acts).

Did you catch The Aces in the first Slingshot at PCS, back in January? Michael Fetters and Shelley McLendon were at the top of their game in that show. On view in March will be folks from The Liberators and The Administration, among others.

In this next installment of Slingshot, it’s two nights of improv comedy based on hilarious personal stories told by guest monologists.

The performance on Friday, March 29 will feature guest monologist Christine McKinley from The History Channel’s Decoded. The Saturday, March 30 performance will feature monologists Julie Sabatier, creator and host of the public radio show and podcast Destination DIY; and Loren Hoskins, the voice of “Sharky” on Disney’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

That’s right, two different shows, so you must see them both.

And speaking of the exploding world of comedy, improv, and storytelling in Portland – look for an interview with Shelley McLendon, the force behind Bad Reputation Productions, coming up soon.
