Cheap Whiskey and Dirty Jokes, at Astoria's Labor Temple Friday Sept. 20th, is hosted by local comedian Public Emily Number One and features headliner Adam Pasi, Tony Ward, Brandon Lyons and Astoria's Brian Lee. One of Portland's funniest persons, Pasi is quickly becoming among the most recognized names in Northwestern 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. Adam has appeared on the IFC show "Portlandia" and has performed on the Limestone, Wenatchee, and Bridgetown comedy festivals. He is a regular host at Helium Comedy Club, as well as a co-host of the bi-monthly comedy game show Funny Humans vs. The Wheel. Frequently intense, but never taking himself too seriously, Adam Pasi encourages all who will 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. Tony Ward is a Portland based comedian who was a semifinalist in Portland's Funniest in 2018. He has performed at the all Jane Festival and is the founder of the Undertow comedy festival in Lincoln City. She performs in bars and clubs all over the Pacific Northwest. Brandon Lyons hosts comedy nights at Helium and Al's Den. The event starts at 8pm and there is a $5 cover charge. 21+ only.
