Marietje Hauprich
Marietje (muh-ree-chah) is a standup comic based in Portland, OR. She grew up in the rough streets of New York. The state not the city. Upstate. Dirt streets. Woods. She draws from her life experiences and is a dedicated helicopter mom to four cats. Her style is best described as captivatingly awkward, yet whimsical. She is a host at Helium Comedy Club and producer of the Sorry Not Sorry show.
Jaren George
Born and raised in New York City, Jaren is a comedian based in Portland, OR. He just wants you (the audience) to be engaged and feed off his intensely high charismatic ways. Jaren’s style for jokes can only be described as “energetic storytelling” with a second main entree of “Ah, I see what he did there” because he spoils you. Jaren performed at 2020 Sketchfest, 2019 DC Comedy Festival, NW Black Comedy Festival, 2021 Albuquerque Funny Fiesta, and host of the podcast, IT Pod Desk. He also produces shows like Optimism!, Comedy: The Musical, and Spec Script. You can catch him doing other shows around the Northwest Pacific. You can see him walking around in the hit TV show Shrill. Your cat adores him.
Bjorn Ryan-Gorman
This country club moved from Montana to the big city and started doing standup comedy in 2012. Bjorn’s confident yet sarcastic storytelling approach to comedy has him captivating the Portland comedy scene. His wealth of stories come from the unique background growing up as a LGBT skateboarder from Montana.
