ASTORIA — The Labor Temple Bar is Astoria’s home for comedy. Cheap Whiskey and Dirty Jokes features the best comics from around the Pacific Northwest.
The next show — 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18 — contains adult material and language. The host is Chad Alan Gemma, and the headliner is Jake Silberman. Other featured comics are Jaren George, Amanda Martin-Tully and Dan Weber.
It is advised that you arrive early for the best seating. Happy hour runs until 7 p.m. The cover is $5.
Silberman was voted “Funniest Person in Portland” by Willamette Week and has twice been a finalist in the Portland’s Funniest Person Contest. He is a regular host and feature at Helium Comedy Club, where he has opened for, among others, Norm Macdonald, Kyle Kinane and Joey Diaz.
Martin-Tully is a stand-up comedian, podcaster, and improviser living in Portland. Alongside Molly Smithson, Martin-Tully co-produces Sex & The Pity, a monthly showcase featuring comedians that are often female-identifying, LGBTQIA+ and comics of color.
Weber has been many things: married, homeless, divorced and dead for 15 minutes. He still is some of them. From religion to politics to life-experience oversharing, he leaves no sacred cow untapped.
The Labor Temple is at 934 Duane St.
