Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival hosts a ton of great comedians—established, up-and-coming and brand spanking new. The idea for the festival, now in its third year, was literally started in a bar conversation between comedians Matt Braunger and Andy Wood, and comedy fan Kim Brady. All of them loved comedy and wanted to bring more of it to the Pacific Northwest.

The 2011 festival is being headlined by a parade of great comedians, including Kristen Schaal, Fred Armisen, Andy Dick, and the incredible Margaret Cho. But it will also feature sketch comedy performances from groups such as Whitest Kids U Know, Laughter Against The Machine and Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen.  

24/7 Comedy is excited to be a media sponsor of the festival and is sponsoring a night of shows on Friday at the Eagles Lodge in Portland. Check out some of the videos below to see what talent will be on stage at this amazing comedy event.
