This is an in-person event
The Rose City Rollers and our very own Portland Mercury will bring five local comics (Shain Brenden, Amanda Arnold, Shrista Tyree, Adam Pasi, and Dylan Carlino) to Oaks Park's drive-in stage to riff and raff on Valentine's Day (the event was rescheduled from last weekend due to snow), COVID-era romance, and life in general. Food will be provided by South Portland saloon Buffalo Gap, and a beer garden will be up and running for your drinking-in-your-car needs.

MC Shain Brenden is a comedian, writer, actor, based in Portland, Oregon. In  2019 he was voted an “Undisputable Genius of Comedy” by the Portland Mercury, and later that year finished Top 3 of Portland’s Funniest Person Contest. He owns several pairs of expensive sneakers that his wife does not approve of at all. 
Amanda Arnold has a brilliant, fast-paced, and commonsensical style of comedy. She opened for Jeff Ross and Dave Attell on two of the Pacific Northwest "Bumping Mics" tour.  Amanda was named one of the “Top 5 Funniest Comics” in Portland, Produced The Undertow Comedy Festival in 2018 and was featured on travel show "Unexpected Adventures" which won two spots at the LA Film Awards.

Shrista recently won the Trailblazer Award for Portland Hip Hop: This award recognizes an individual who identified and implemented innovative changes that positively affected their community. She was also chosen as one of the “Undisputed Geniuses of Comedy” by the Portland Mercury and was nominated as Willamette Week's Top 5 for “Best Comedian” in Portland.
Dylan started stand-up in Massachusetts and performed in the Mass Moca Comedy Festival. After reading Eat, Pray, Love, he packed up everything he owned and moved 3000 miles, knowing no one, armed with nothing but Felicity jokes, just for the story. He was named the 2nd funniest person in Portland by Willamette Week in 2019.
Adam Pasi is a very silly person who has appeared in Portlandia as well as performed on the Bridgetown, Limestone and Big Sky comedy festivals. In 2019 he won the Helium Portland's Funniest Person Contest and due to the city's forfeit of this year's contest he's declared himself 2020's Funniest Person by default (AKA the FDR of PFP). He's afraid of dolls and loves his mom
