Tonight at East Burn, Oregon Art Beat will be filming the recurring Down to Funny standup comedy night for an upcoming segment on comedy in Portland. The free show starts at 8, and features:
And host Katie Brien
I'm not familiar with Dan Duncan, but otherwise that's a solid lineup. (I particularly like Shane Torres, who took third at the Portland's Funniest Person contest at Helium over the summer.)

And in sketch news, Michael Fetters and Shelley McLendon have just announced a new duo called The Aces, who will debut their first show in March. Fetters and McLendon are veterans of basically every sketch thing that has happened in Portland in the last few years (3rd Floor, Sweat, and Road House: The Play, for starters), so this is promising.
