All Jane Comedy Festival - RANTS OFF / DANCE OFF

FEATURING: Becky Braunstein, Corina Lucas, Chanel Ali, Elizabeth Teets, Belinda Carroll, Dewa Dorje

One of the most fun shows we’ve ever seen, Rants Off / Dance Off is a comedy game show where comedians compete in a battle of vulnerabilities both verbal and physical! Contestants offer their heated opinions on subjects - some prepared, some improvised- and then, like ice cream to a hot pepper so foolishly eaten whole, sooth their raw nerves by dancing their hearts out. Judgement is summarily doled out panel-style. Winners receive little but pride and regrets. Great fun is had by all! Rants Off / Dance Off has been a part of Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot in Seattle, and is a traditional highlight of All Jane.

SET LIST at the Pack

Top comics are given a series of strange, challenging, and outrageous topics in the moment, with zero seconds to prepare, and create spontaneous, in the moment, original stand-up before a live audience.

"Use your imagination, not your material."

As the comedian takes the stage, a new 'set list' is projected onscreen, so the comics and the audience see the set list at the same time. Complete comedy in the moment.
