PF14 Artist Snapshot: Turkey Club presents “A Spontaneous Night of Improv Comedy”


NOTE: PortFringe will be profiling PF14 Artists and their shows on this blog in the weeks leading up to the festival (June 24-29, 2014). The next snapshot is of Turkey Club – an improv comedy ensemble appearing at PortFringe for the first time this year.

Artist: Turkey Club
Show: A Spontaneous Night of Improv Comedy
Description: Join us for an evening of improvised stories, songs, and shenanigans. Frankly, we don’t know what’s going to happen but we know it is going to be good.

Tell us something we don’t know about you and your PortFringe show.

We are not turkeys, not are we a
 club. Not are we a sandwich.


What are you most looking forward to about PortFringe 2014?

Our show! Because it’s really just us getting silly with our friends.

Lobster or Steak? Discuss.

Lobster would obviously win in a fight because it’s still a whole animal, and can therefore be alive.

Break your legs, Turkeys!


Tuesday, June 24 at 7:00pm – Geno’s Rock Club (21+)
Wednesday, June 25 at 11:30pm – Geno’s Rock Club (21+) – THE OFFICIAL PORTFRINGE “LATE NIGHT” SHOW FOR WEDNESDAY JUNE 25!

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Emily Young of Turkey Club is not only a PF Artist, but is also a founder of Word Portland – a reading series held on the first Monday of each month. The next Word Portland event is being held at 9:00PM this Monday, June 2 at LFK during which Word Portland has graciously offered to promote PortFringe, and will feature (among other wonderful local writers) PF14 Artist Carolyn Gage reading some of her dramatic work – stop by and enjoy the words! Big thanks to Emily & Dani at Word Portland and the other great people and organizations who have lent their support to PortFringe.
