Comics Take Featuring Ira Claybourne, James Hartenfeld, and Mx. Dahlia Belle
Comics take on PNW news will all the focus of a murder of crows in a vault bursting with shiny


 Join us at 11 pm on Monday April 8th for what is sure to be a chaotic romp through local headlines and unrelated topics. 

This month's panelists include:

James Hartenfeld (@hartenfeld) - James Hartenfeld is the creator of Ricky Winters and co-producer of Butter & Goodness Comedy. He's a 2024 Willamette Week top 5 comedian in Portland.

Ira Claybourne (@ira.claybourne) - Ira Claybourne is a queer, southern-born comedian currently joking in Boston. They have been a featured performer at the Laugh Riot Grrrl festival in LA, and they produced a show at the Far Out Comedy Festival in Toronto, Canada titled 💖Bless Our Hearts💖. If their quirky hot takes and spicy criticism doesn’t tell you they’re a Virgo, they will.

Mx. Dahlia Belle (@mx.dahliabelle) - Mx. Dahlia Belle's comedy has been compared to a Swiss Army knife - different tools to extract sharpness, softness, vulnerability, hope, and wicked wit. She's been declared one of "11 Trans Comedians... Funnier Than Dave Chappelle" by Out Magazine and the funniest of Willamette Week's Funniest Five. In addition to having written for Cosmopolitan Magazine, The Guardian, The Stranger, and Portland Mercury, she has been a repeat guest on NPR, CBC, XRAY FM, and Portland Radio Project (PRP). Live performances have included NW Black Comedy Festival, Upper Left Comedy Festival, Hannah Gadsby's "Gender Agenda" on Netflix, and an awkward conversation with John Waters and Piers Morgan.
