Problem Solving Initiative: Creating + Kindly Announcing Silly Solutions FIVE
The Mental State Department is proud to announce we are having a Halloween Party October 13th, at the Curious Comedy Theater (5225 NE MLK). MSD invites all the brilliant and beautiful people of Portland to dress in their scariest, stupidest costumes and attend! We usually have a strict dress code, but we're waiving it: your Slutty Hot Dog Costume is proper attire for this event.
Guests include Ian Karmel (Portland's Funniest Person, Talkin' Ball, Portlandia) Veronica Heath (Regular Feature at Harvey's Comedy Club) and Alex Falcone ("Read It And Weep" podcast, ComedySportz), who will be participating in PSICKASS.
PSICKASS is a challenge for comedians to complete in front of an audience: spectators submit problems they need solved, and visiting comedians go to work for just 30 minutes creating hilarious solutions to all the problems. Along the way, the Mental State Department performs sketches and commercials, invites special guests to perform and make celebrity cameo appearances, along with live music, contests, and much more. This variety show packs belly-laughs and head-scratchers from floor-to-ceiling!
Doors open on October 13th at 7:30 pm and the show starts at 8.
Featuring live music from Ira Novos, with special secret guests to be announced!
Tickets are $5 in advance, $7 at the door, or $5 at the door if you wear a Halloween costume (the box office will decide what constitutes an actual costume). This show is 21+, and we have a full bar available, including the Mental State Department's Signature "Brain with an Irish Coffee Chaser." Use the link to order tickets in advance and save! Or wear a costume for $2 off the door price. Mark your calendars for 10/13 at 7:30, Curious Comedy Theater. We hope to see you there!
