Rip City XXXI

Hello. This is the information section about this show. It's a comedy show. I'm pissing myself to learn more information about the show. This is where you can read about it. The specifics. Specifically the show. It's important to read it. Everyone always does. It's a show called RIP CITY. Yes, Rip City. It also happens to be what Portland Trailblazer fans call Portland. Fucking oops. We didn't know that when we started. Now we're too lazy to change it. Give us a break.

$5

Rip City CHS is a monthly variety show featuring a rotating cast of local comedians, musicians, and other oddball artists.

A One Man Version of Every Christmas Special You Have Ever Seen (almost) 
 
Andy is at his parent’s house for their annual Christmas Eve party.  It’s one of those fun types of holiday parties with no music, no booze and dad reading chapters from the Bible.  There is only one way not to run screaming from the house – immerse yourself in Christmas TV specials.  Andy has watched every Christmas themed TV show and movie so many times he knows most of them by heart and he’ll break them down for you.  Oh yeah, this is a one man version of Charlie Brown, The Grinch, and Ebenezer Scrooge like you’ve never seen them before.  Drop the kids off at grandma’s because nothing’s sacred in this high-energy romp through all of the holiday classics.
