Comedy vs. Tragedy is a variety competition show in Portland, Oregon. NovaPDX has produced the show since September 2017.
New show format and new location
starting in July!
Sixteen times 3 poets, 3 musicians and 3 comedians have competed for audience applause to determine which of them would represent their art form in the final round of Comedy vs. Tragedy every first Friday. Since September of 2017 we have provided a stage for over 140 performers, handed out $4,000 in prizes and sent performers to record their work at Shady Pines Media. It’s been a blast! To make the show more fun and accessible we are changing the format and venue starting in July.
On Friday, July 19th, join us for a new format of our show.
Each month a poet, a musician & a comedian will still vie for audience applause,
now at the Rocking Frog Cafe.
The show is now all ages!
