Since the Comedy Connection closed last fall, weekend laughs have been a bit hard to come by around town.
Not so this Saturday.
The funny comes back to the city with the Portland Comedy Co-Op at Mayo Street Arts. The event promises "humorous musings, jokes about things and funny sounds" starting at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets for just $8.
If you're wondering who you'll be thanking for putting the ha-ha in your weekend, think OffBeat Comedy founding members Will Green, James Spizuoco and Joe Timmins, plus Tasty Dude Film guys Travis Curran and Jordan Handren-Seavey, along with comedian Aharon Hebert.
If that's not enough, you can also expect ukulele songs, one-liners, jokes about fatherhood and even jokes about joke writing from Handren-Seavey, Portland's Funniest Professional for 2012.
Hey, everybody needs a laugh by the time Saturday rolls around, so why not get a chuckle from someone else's never-ending list of awkward experiences?
