Laughing on Last Saturday: Stand Up Comedy at the Old Liberty

Did you know that the Old Liberty Theater in Ridgefield hosts a stand-up comedy series on the last Saturday of every month? It’s called “Laughing on Last Saturday,” and you can find the region’s funniest talent on stage at 7:30 p.m. The next evening of comedy is happening on Saturday, Sept. 30—this month featuring headliner Todd Armstrong.

Laughing on Last Saturday is a partnership with Stage Left Entertainment, the brainchild of comedians Don Frost and Lonnie Bruhn. Each month, they’ll host and feature local, established and credited headlining comedians. Armstrong has been deemed “Portland’s Comic to Watch” by Comedy Central, has been featured on Portlandia, and has worked alongside many well-known comedians, including Amy Schumer (!) and Bill Burr. To learn more about Armstrong, visit www.armtoddstrong.com.

Tickets are $15 per person, available at the door while supplies last, or in advance by calling 360-887-7260. The doors will open at 6:45 p.m. so that you can find a good seat and get some refreshments from Seasons Café in the lobby: coffee, tea, and pastries, as well as beer and wine. A word to parents: comedy shows may contain adult content, so it’s best to leave the kids and teens at home.

Permanent Comedy at the Old Liberty

Portland’s Permanent Comedy series, hosted by Todd Armstrong, is returning to the Old Liberty Theater in Ridgefield. The next show will be at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12. In this side-splitting, spontaneous series, Armstrong will interview some of Portland’s best comedians, such as Hunter Hill, Nariko Ott, Jacob Christopher, and Susan Rice.

Maybe they will be getting tattooed during the interview, or doing something else equally distracting but funny to watch. (Or wait. IS it funny to watch someone get tattooed? I think it depends on the tattoo.) But mostly the comedians—and Armstrong—will give the audience an honest, no-holds-barred, up-close-and-personal look at what drew them to stand-up comedy and what it takes to succeed. Or not.

Tickets to the Permanent Comedy Show are $10 at the door on the day of the show, or you can by TWO Early Bird tickets for $10. To get your tickets before the show sells out, call the Old Liberty Theater at 360-887-7260. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Permanent Comedy Live!

Ridgefield’s historic Old Libery Theater presents Permanent Comedy Live! at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 25. Get your ribs tickled with an evening of stand-up comedy with featuring a line-up of notable masters of comedy Todd Armstrong, Silas Lindenstein, Nariko Ott, Belinda Carrol, and Kyle Harbert. Admission is $8 in advance or $10 on the day of the show. Tickets are available by calling the Old Liberty at 360-887-7260. This show is for, ahem, more mature audiences.

Permanent Comedy is an episodic internet TV show hosted by Todd Armstrong featuring comedic guests and produced with the help of announcer Greg Nibler, pixel artist Anthony Justiniano, audio and mix artist Jake Rowan, tattoo artists Jerry and Joanne Marian (why does the show need tattoo artists? Watch and find out) and the video, animation and editing talents of Wolf Wise Media. Watch episodes at www.permanentcomedy.com or on YouTube (but maybe don’t watch them when little ones are within earshot).
