Leave Your Troubles at The Door (started in 2019) is a completely improvised stand-up comedy showcase where the audience’s problems create the topics of the jokes on stage. Audience members anonymously write their problems, troubles or issues down on pieces of paper, put them in a box before the show and then many of the best comedians from the Pacific Northwest and beyond take on those problems with their on-the-spot jokes. It’s a rare comedy show where instead of the comedian joking about their problems, they joke about yours!

We have a regular showcase every first Friday at Funhouse Lounge in Portland, Oregon and monthly at Capitol Hill Comedy / Bar in Seattle, Washington

More shows are announced all the time! Follow us on Instagram and contact me (Chris Hudson) for booking inquiries. I can bring the show to your city / venue! We also do private shows upon request.
