The first annual Small Batch Comedy Festival will feature 16 comedians from the Central Oregon area. The goal is to highlight all the amazing talent in our backyard. The two-night string of shows will be packed full of local voices ranging from long-time residents to fresh faces.
“Craft is our home club,” said Katy Ipock, the owner of Ipockolyptic Productions, “It only makes sense that Bend’s first stand up comedy festival should be centered there.” They also have a show at Silver Moon Brewery that Sunday. “Silver Moon has also been such an amazing supporter of stand up in Bend.”
Many of our local comedians have been getting experience working on the road and doing well in regional comedy competitions. Bend is getting a reputation for having amazing talent and the best audiences.
“It’s about time Central Oregon had an event like Small Batch! I’m delighted to be performing alongside the area’s funniest rising talents.” said Jodi Compton, one of the performers in the festival.
“I’ve been doing stand up comedy for three years now, and hoping someone would put a local comedy festival together. So I’m super stoked.” Said Mark Rook, another performer.
The Small Batch Comedy Festival is happening November 12 and 13 at Craft Kitchen and Brewery, and November 14 at Silver Moon Brewery. Tickets are available at bendticket.com.
