About the show: Join comedian Chris Fairbanks (Comedy Central, Conan, Tru TV) as we explore what would happen if Paul Ryan actually held a town hall like he's supposed to. Come with your own questions and comments on the state of The GOP and The KGB in Trump’s America, the night will start with stand up comedy from Andie Main and Chris Fairbanks. About Chris Fairbanks: Originally from Montana’s Big Sky Country, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Chris Fairbanks headlines comedy venues internationally. His fast paced, quirky, and constantly improvised act has been showcased on Comedy Central, Conan, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Seeso. For TruTV, Chris was a cast member and director of ‘World’s Dumbest’ and the host of “Almost Genius”. In the past year, he’s been featured on @midnight w/ Chris Hardwick, FOX’s new (and very similar) series Punchline, and the 2016 film ‘Punching Henry’. Chris has upcoming appearances on HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Amazon’s ‘One Mississippi’, and Comedy Central series ‘Corporate’. Chris’ comedy album, “Fairbanks!” was named one of Amazon MP3’s Top Ten. He also hosts the popular podcast, “Do You Need a Ride”, with Karen Kilgariff on All Things Comedy. They shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in a '08 Honda Accord mobile sound studio. Chris is also self-employed as a freelance artist, illustrating for magazines, skateboards, album covers, etc.
Andie Main is a Portland based comedian who keeps busy by producing/hosting The Doug Fir Lounge's summer series The Cool Kids Patio Show, and her politically themed series called Revolution Comedy, which organizes fundraisers for progressive causes like Planned Parenthood, The ACLU, and Don't Shoot PDX. At this bizarre moment in our nation's history, her efforts have contributed over $10,000 to #theresistance and although she is a life long punkrocker, is stoked to see these shows selling out regularly. Festival credits include The Comedy Exposition, repeated appearances at SF Sketchfest and The All Jane Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Seattle Sketchfest, Portland Pride, Treefort Festival and Cromfest. She has recently performed for sold out crowds at UCBeast, UCB Chelsea and The Stand Nightclub in NYC, and esteemed shows in LA like The Rabbit Hole and Put Your Hands Together. When in Portland she is a fixture on the NW circuit and a regular at Helium Comedy Club. She is a regular feature for comedians like TJ Miller, Myq Kaplan and David Huntsberger and after the shows they've all said "hey Andie that was great!" and got brunch because you can order brunch whenever you want in Portland. In her spare time she enjoys taking hikes with her not-so-smart dog, pizza, making weird art, nature documentaries and yelling about the patriarchy. Twitter @andiemain Instagram @andie_main
