Discovery and Local Comedy

Wandering the halls of a McMenamins property is always an adventure, and a fresh discovery is usually just around the corner.  Hidden artwork, secret bars, ghosts of the past, and… live comedy?  That’s right, Al’s Den, in the basement of the Crystal Hotel, hosts live comedy every Friday & Saturday!

After our nightly music wraps up (which I’m sure you already knew about), the comedians take the stage at 10:30pm.  Hosted by Jon Washington and Brandon Lyons, you can expect to see a rotating cast of Portland’s funniest take the stage, and did I mention it’s FREE?!?  You read that right- Live Comedy, No Cover!

The local talent is sure to keep you laughing all night, and if you’re lucky, you may catch a celebrity visitor (rumor has it we’ve been visited by pros like Janeane Garofalo in the past).  If you’ve never seen live comedy, this is the place to do it, so come on down the stairs to Al’s Den, Friday & Saturday at 10:30pm.
