Headlining Transplants at Helium Comedy Club

Comedy is difficult. Moving to a new city even more so. These poor souls decided to do both and picked Portland, a city rightfully wary of outsiders. The fourth edition of Helium's Transplants showcase features some of the brightest comedic minds from across the country that have moved to Portland specifically in pursuit of furthering their comedy endeavors. Part of Portland's allure is the city's strong support of the arts community and comedy is no exception. They're not here to steal your apartment or open another coffee shop. They're simply here to prove their worth among the city's thriving comedy and arts scene. They are the Transplants.

Host: James Bosquez

Featuring:Becky Braunstein, Corina Lucas, Isaac Pendergrass, Ben Rose, Chase Brockett, Jaren George, Zoe Proval, and Pedro Andrade!
