Bend Comedy presents the comedy of Travis Nelson and Vanessa Dawn.
Technically a giant at 6’9″, Travis was raised in the rain forests of Washington State where the lack of sunshine and abundance of caffeine fostered his obsessive goofball personality. With an act that intertwines real personal stories and experiences with absurd and imaginative meanderings, he invites the audience to escape into the sometimes dark but always lighthearted playground of his psyche.
Travis has performed in the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the Cape Fear Comedy Festival, the Westside Comedy Showdown in Santa Monica, won “Best of the Fest” at the Burbank Comedy Festival, and recently made it into the semi-finals round of the World Series of Comedy as one of the top 8 comics out of 101 selected for the Main Event.
Vanessa Dawn is a comedian from Tulsa, Oklahoma now living in the Pacific Northwest. Her laid back style of observational comedy keeps the audience laughing. She has performed in the Blue Whale Comedy Festival, and hosted at the Loony Bin Comedy Club and Laugh’s Comedy Club in Seattle.
Hosted by Ryan Traughber. For ages 21 and over.
