Spilt Milk Comedy Showcase
Spilt Milk Comedy Showcase
Spilt Milk: you'll laugh 'til you cry! is SW Portland's monthly comedy showcase co-founded by comic moms Joanie Quinn and Betsy Kauffman, who started doing stand up as a way to escape domestic "art" and their uterine kin. Spilt Milk has been featuring hot local comics and comedy writers, including winners of Portland's Funniest & Willamette Week's Funniest, to sold out crowds for four years in historic Multnomah Village. Spilt Milk Comedy is a hit with audiences who like their comedy on the PG-13 side (clean, but not too clean… kinda clean, like washing that muddy football uniform, but not using Tide with bleach).
Alex Falcone
Alex Falcone
Alex Falcone is a comedian and writer from Portland, OR. He's a regular on the IFC show Portlandia and has appeared at numerous comedy festivals including Bridgetown, Bumbershoot, Sketchfest, and the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He's written for The Portland Mercury, The Willamette Week, and the public radio show Live Wire, and his work has been quoted in Rolling Stone, VOX, Boing Boing, and been featured on the front page of Reddit. Salt & Straw even named an ice cream flavor after him and it was delicious.

Despite these modest accomplishments, he somehow remains totally down to earth and approachable.
Joanie Quinn
Joanie Quinn
Joanie Quinn is an extremely late forties (ok, just turned 50) goofy Mom, wrapped in the maturity of a 12 year old. Along the way four children joined the circus, aging from toddler to teen. Joanie turns her stay-at-home chaos into hilarious tales for all to enjoy - and is completely loving the spotlight: just don't tell her kids where she is... !

"I swore I wouldn't care about a clean floor the way my Mother did... and with the help of my four children, I have reached that goal."

- Joanie Quinn

Joanie Quinn is a college graduate making absolutely no use of her degree in Television Writing from Loyola Marymount University. She spent years working in Hollywood, from Assistant Casting for old game shows, to the same for TBS productions "Rocky Road" and "Safe At Home". Joanie worked with Michael Jacobs Productions on "My Two Dads" and the Disney/Henson Production "Dinosaurs" as a Script Goddess. This involved staying up all night with sleepy, but funny, writers... just another experience that in some small way prepared her for sleepless nights with her own babies someday...

Following her dreamy husband to dreary Portland in 1991 (please know that the writer of this short autobiography does not fully share this opinion of Portland) she added Preschool Teacher, Studio Photographer, Women's retreat author, Rose Festival Clown, and now Stand Up Comedienne just back from the Burbank Comedy Festival to her pile of laundry.
Betsy Kauffman
Betsy Kauffman
Betsy Kauffman has made a happy and useful comedy career out of growing up in the only Jewish family in Wisconsin and cooking her family a steady supply of tasty gluten and dairy. While not at her day job promoting renewable energy, Betsy has performed at Harvey’s Comedy Club, the Spilt Milk Comedy Show where she is a co-producer, as well as multiple libraries and environmental fundraisers. She is about to venture into teaching a group of teenagers to do stand-up and is excited about learning a bunch of new slang that will impress her friends.
