Amanda Arnold
Amanda Arnold
As soon as Amanda Arnold gets on stage, you're ready to laugh. Her brilliant, fast-paced, honest and commonsensical style earned her a bi-monthly show at Helium Comedy Club in her hometown of Portland, Oregon where she is a regular having the privilege to work with brilliant comics such as Bert Kreischer, Nikki Glaser, Jay Pharoah and Nate Bargatze just to name a few. Amanda was named one of the “Top 5 Funniest Comics” in Portland by the Willamette Week in 2016 and is a two-time winner of PDX Dirty Dozen Roast Battle. She has also been selected to showcase in the All Jane Comedy Festival, Idaho Laugh Fest, Bridgetown Comedy festival, Laughs on Fusion as well as featuring and headlining all over the Pacific Northwest. Amanda produced a comedy festival; the Undertow Comedy Festival in Lincoln City, Oregon April 2018 featuring comics such as Ron Funches, Jeff Dye, and Judah Friedlander. She did stand-up comedy for the first time when she was eight years old! Yes! You read that correctly! It's no wonder you get a feeling when watching her that some people are just born funny.
Dan Weber
Dan Weber
"Dan Weber grew up in a town where the high school mascot was the Cheesemakers, which is funny until you realize it’s actually grimly prophetic.

Dan has been many things, married, homeless, divorced, and dead for 15 minutes.

He still is some of them."
Kirsten Kuppenbender
Kirsten Kuppenbender came out of the womb laughing, which was a concern to the staff at Good Samaritan Hospital, but not to her mom and dad who were too drunk to notice. Her unfortunate upbringing has provided her with a quick wit and a lack of any real expectations! Kirsten, or "Kupp" as she is known to literally everyone, attended Atlantic Theater Acting School in New York City where she studied for years to become a Professional Auditioner. She is the curator and a founding member of Lez Stand Up and is eternally stoked about it!!!!
