I love this place. Helium Comedy Club in Southeast Portland offers name performers, great seating and just a great time.
Recently, I’ve seen Whitney Cummings, Bob Saget, Natasha Leggero and David Spade and the comic genius of Richard Lewis. There are always a couple of warm-up performers who do nice, short sets.
For a few bucks more, you can buy a reserved seat and generally you’re placed in the very front or second row. Purchase online or you can get them at the door. Do show up a half hour early though. General admission is first come first served.
There’s plenty of activity at the full bar, and the food is just so-so. I generally get the Mediterranean plate and call it good.
