Photos | Bridgetown Comedy Festival | Portland’s live performance scene is on fire

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

It was three days of August weather kidnapped and released in early May.

In Portland.

Who knew when the 8th annual Bridgetown Comedy Festival set its dates that there was endless summer weather in the forecast?

While the sun helps, the real draw keeping things blazing over this long weekend of comedy is the roster of indoor talent.

The Portland live performance scene is on fire. You knew that. And no one is coming to put it out. Oh well.

Enjoy the conflagration.

And we still have one more full day.

Obama who? | Bridgetown Comedy Festival takes over Portland all weekend long

All weekend long, Portland is going to be in traffic gridlock.

But it’s not because of the Prez.

Oh no.

It’s because the Bridgetown Comedy Festival is back in town. Portland’s growing comedy showcase is hitting its stride, and it’s easy to walk between most venues, which are roughly centered on Doug Fir in SE Portland.

This thing is just getting started, so turnout and catch some of the best live entertainment anywhere.

Here’s photos from day 1.
