Sean Jordan
Sean Jordan
It's a common theory that comedians are all messed up in the head. Maybe they had a terrible childhood, maybe they have social anxiety disorder, or maybe they just hate everything and stand up is the only outlet for them to feel normal. Not Sean, he had a great childhood and just loves being in front of people. Growing up wasn't perfect of course, but who has a "perfect" childhood anyway. Sean grew up in a single parent household surrounded by midwestern women. Not having a dad around just meant he didn't turn into a dickhead when he got older, instead he was just super funny all the time trying to make people laugh starting when he proposed to his 2nd grade teacher in front of the entire class on Valentines Day.

Sean has been a stand up comedian for almost a decade now, starting in Sioux Falls SD but now living in Portland OR. Moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2009 from the Midwest, Sean has become a staple in the Portland comedy scene. He produces and performs in the #1 independent showcase in Portland, Funny Over Everything. In 2014 the Sean was named the funniest person in Portland by the Willamette Week magazine. He was also a finalist in the 2014 Portland’s Funniest Person contest at Helium Comedy Club, The Tacoma Comedy contest and The Wenatchee Comedy Festival. Comedy Central named Sean as one of their comics to watch, Splitsider also named Sean as one of the comics to watch in 2015. Sean has become a nationally touring comic having traveled all over doing stand up working some of the best clubs in the country including ACME Comedy Club in Minneapolis, Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Zanies in Nashville and Chicago and the Dallas Improv to name a few. Sean has participated in some of the best comedy festivals in the country, namely The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Bumbershoot Comedy and Arts Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, Cromfest and the High Plains Comedy Festival. If you’re a podcast fan then you may have heard him on the Crabfeast, Professor Blastoff, Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, The Benson Interruption or as a regular guest on Doug Benson’s poscast Doug Loves Movies. You also may have heard Sean on NPR or the nationally played radio program LiveWire Radio.

It sounds cliche, but it's true, life is short so go out and enjoy it. If you made it this far in the bio then it means you're interested in comedy in general so just go out and enjoy some. If you feel so inclined, go over the "shows" tab and find the next place you can see Sean!

Adam Pasi
Adam Pasi
Adam Pasi is a Portland comic who is quickly becoming among the most recognized names in Northwest comedy.

Born in Tacoma, WA and raised on army bases on the East Coast and in Germany, Adam’s unique outlook on life allows him to craft absurd yet relatable stories, culminating in admittedly ridiculous calls to arms.

In addition to being a four time finalist in the annual Portland’s Funniest Person Contest (placing 3rd this year), Adam has performed on the Limestone, Wenatchee, and Bridgetown comedy festivals. He was also on the cover of a free newspaper once. He is a regular host at Helium Comedy Club, as well as co-host of a bi-monthly comedy game show Funny Humans vs. The Wheel.

Frequently intense, but never taking himself too seriously, Adam Pasi encourages all who’ll listen to join him in his mostly imaginary, but always amusing crusade against... well, something. Whatever it is, being loud and silly is the only way to fight it.
