Have you ever been watching a late-night talk show and thought, “well, this is fun--but why isn’t this hosted by a woman and way, way, way more gay?”
Welcome to Outlandish! A Queer-positive, sex-positive, dance-positive, person-positive romp through the best in Portland Music, Comedy. Politics, Drag and Burlesque---with dance breaks!
Outlandish! seeks to highlight the diverse and incredible artist boom in Portland, by bringing together many forms of entertainment under one showcase.
Helmed and hosted by Belinda Carroll--comedian and co-Founder of Portland Queer Comedy Festival, with credits including MTV, Portlandia and Cracked.com; Outlandish! brings together the talents of the whole creative community for an AMAZING 2nd Saturday every month!
Our guests for our inaugural episode!

DJ Jen Roberton Mt. Bachelors Pridefest, DayBreak, and Flock women’s parties will be throwing down mixes of classic sounds with house/techno and making it a party!
Burlesque artist and instructor Vanity Thorn from Showgirl Temple will pick out one lucky audience member to get makeup, hair and learn the art of burlesque, and then they perform--for the very first time ever!
Comedian Jenna Vesper; Belinda’s sidekick and co-producer of Comic Strip, DISOWNED and SMT: Comedy Done Dirty. Keeping Belinda on-track, and making sure she doesn’t talk about her roommates’ cats for 25 minutes (they aren’t even Belinda’s cats, it’s sad).
