Minority Retort presents Irene Tu
Sat, Jun 29 from 8pm - 10pm
On Saturday, June 29th at 8:00pm, Minority Retort, Portland's premier stand-up comedy showcase featuring comedians of color, and the Siren Theater are proud to present, Irene Tu!
Irene is a Chicago-born, San Francisco-based stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. In 2017, the San Francisco Chronicle singled her out as an “artist on the brink of fame,” on the heels of being named one of the “Bay Area’s 11 Best Stand Up Comedians” (SFist) and one of 20 “Women to Watch” (KQED). She has performed at numerous festivals including SF Sketchfest, Clusterfest, RIOT LA, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Outside Lands. Irene has opened for comedians such as Patton Oswalt, Anthony Jeselnik, W. Kamau Bell, Brian Posehn, Gary Gulman, Judah Friedlander, Kyle Mooney, Hari Kondabolu, and Aparna Nancherla. You can see her on season 2 of “Take My Wife” and on VICELAND’s “Funny How?”
Joining Irene on the lineup will be guest co-host D Martin Austin (Portland Mercury, Portland Queer Comedy Festival) and Minority Retort favorites James Bosquez and El Sanchez!
Minority Retort is hosted and produced by Jason Lamb (XRAYFM radio, Portland Podcast Festival) and Julia Ramos (All Jane Comedy Festival)
