Bend Comedy Presents: Riley Fox & Coor Cohen
Bend Comedy Presents:
- RILEY FOX -
Nashville-bred, Portland-based comic RILEY FOX is a thinking-man in an increasingly non-thinking world. Armed with a lethal combination of Southern charm and West Coast smarts, Riley's comedy points out the absurdities and hypocrisies of just about everything, from life growing up in the South to musings about politics, religion, and society at large. From comedy clubs to college auditoriums to seafood restaurants to a flatbed trailer behind a redneck bar, Riley has seen it all and done it all, making him one of the most versatile comedians in the Pacific Northwest.
- COOR COHEN -
Portland-based comic Coor Cohen’s transient upbringing and natural charisma allowed her to quickly develop the “intellectually silly” comedic voice that has become a distinct signature throughout her work. Coor’s performances are layered with intellectual stimulation, thoughtful jabs at the status quo, and the ability to connect with and hold audiences throughout a wide variety of topics, ranging from her obsession with the media landscape, to the peculiarities of public radio fundraising, and even the Wu-Tang Clan. By elevating her material she brings a refreshing point-of-view to any stage, and regardless of what region (or small county) of the country Coor is performing, she leaves their audiences feeling like they just met their new best friend.
Piano Bar Bob at the Capitol
Come sing along, toast a buddy, roast a family member, put in a request for some Parody sing alongs. Bobs hilarious show always brings out laughter by way of song. Shot after shot get your fix for a group singalong to the classics you love old and new! FREE show
