Tacoma’s comedy scene is one of the best in the country, and the city has been growing its comic community.
But some of the more well-known local comics are stepping away from the spotlight in favor of more independent, more experimental material.
Theatre is also a great place to showcase some of Tacoma’s other great homegrown comedians.
This month, the city hosts The Theatre of the Pacific’s “Hip Hop Comedy Jam” for comedy groups.
Tickets cost $30 to $40 and can be reserved online or at the theatre’s door.
The Comedy Arts Project, a local group, is hosting a show at The Pacific Theatre on Saturday with new local acts.
The group, whose members include comedians Josh Hirsch, Andrew Rannazzisi and Ben Hirschfeld, is a mix of Seattle and Pacific Northwest acts, including a trio from Tacoma.
“They’re like a mix between the bands in Seattle and Tacoma, with a little more of an independent feel,” said Jens Bergen, the group’s artistic director.
The Pacific Theatre has two stages, one for comedy and one for more traditional theatre.
The theater also has a stage for music, dance, comedy, music video and theater.
The show will feature music from “The Hangover” and “The Simpsons.”
“I think it’s going to be a great way to introduce people to the Seattle comedy scene,” said Bergen.
The event is a showcase for the Pacific Theatre, which has hosted dozens of shows.
The company’s co-founder and artistic director, Mark Baskin, said it’s a way for the company to showcase its artists, which are often underrepresented in the city’s theater scene.
“We’ve always been a theater company, but we have never been a comedy company,” he said.
“I think there are a lot of people who have never seen any of the shows.”
The Tacoma comedy scene isn’t unique.
Seattle’s comedy community is diverse, with many of the most well-established performers performing in the suburbs, including Seattle’s own The Wiggles.
It’s not uncommon to see local stand-up comedians perform at a local bar, but the comedy scene in Seattle is largely based in the Northwest, including the Pacific Northwest.
The Northwest has a lot to offer for the comedy industry, with the region’s creative industries and the comedy venues that draw audiences.
Bergen said the Northwest is a good place for the Tacoma comedy industry to grow.
He noted the city is known for its independent and experimental shows, such as the comedy shows on “Portlandia,” which he said have been very successful.
Berger said there are two main comedy communities in the region, one in Tacoma and one in Seattle.
The Tacoma scene is made up of performers like The Wiggle, who are part of the larger Tacoma Comedy Community.
“I’m just excited to see what the Tacoma scene will be, because it’s been a really good experience,” he added.
The comedy scene also has an established group in Seattle, The Peeks.
They have performed on “Saturday Night Live” and other shows.
They’ve performed in Portland and elsewhere in the Pacific Southwest.
They’re one of several local comedy groups that has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, which is a staple for local comedy fans.
The Peeks’ website has a playlist of more than 40 local acts that include The Wiggs, J.M. Berger, and J.P. Lott.
They also perform on Comedy Central’s “South Park.”
The comedy show at the Tacoma Theatre on April 1 will feature the Peeks, the Piggles and many more performers.
The Piggls will perform “Tacoma Comedy Jam,” which includes a comedy showcase with local acts, such a music video from “Harmontown” and more.
The group also hosts “The Comedy Jam with a Live DJ” every Saturday night, which includes more local performers.
The Seattle comedy community has also been growing.
A local comedy show called “The Laugh Out Loud” is on at the Seattle Center Theater, where the Pugs are scheduled to perform a show in April.
The comedian groups are the latest example of Tacoma having a diverse comedy scene.
There are also shows at The Theater of the Seattle Opera and The Tacoma Theatre.
“Tacomans comedy scene has been the best thing that has happened to me in my life, and I’m glad to be here to help support it,” said comedian Chris Gee, who has performed in Seattle for over 20 years.
“The Tacoma Comedy Jam is an excellent way for Tacoma to have a great local scene.”
Tickets to the comedy show are $25 to $30, but they can be purchased online at tacomacentertheater.com or at its door.
