There’s no better way to welcome in a new year than to laugh away the old one.
Comedians Gone Wild(ish) showcases the clean comedy talents of three comedians who know how to make people laugh so hard tears run down their legs.

Headliner: Gabe Dinger is an LA comic, originally from Portland, who has been making audiences laugh for the last 10 years, performing in festivals such as Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, and SF Sketchfest. As a member of the improv troupe Whiskey Tango, he has also performed in the LA Improv Festival, SF Sketchfest, and the Del Close Marathon in New York City. The Portland Mercury has called him a “Punchline machine.”

Co-feature: Leigh Anne Jasheway is celebrating her 24th year as a comedian and has made audiences from Las Vegas to New York to Cottage Grove snort beverages out their noses. She has been chosen both the second and third funniest person in Eugene and hopes to come in fourth next year. Leigh Anne is also the founder of The Eugene Laff Off (now in its 21st year) and the NW Women’s Comedy Festival (now in its 11th year), as well as the monthly showcases Bleepin’ Funny and What the Funny?!, an all-improvised comedy show.

Mike McGowan has been making Northwest audiences laugh for a few years and is one of Eugene’s favorites. His hysterical story-telling based comedy is not to be missed.
