Feeling the horror of stasis? Ennui? Afraid of the impending autumn? Need something to look forward to?

Comedy Is OK, Portland's monthly comedy and variety show, has cooked up an exchange program with our own People's Republic of Komedy—meaning PRoK will run south and these guys, who seem funny, will be coming to Chop Suey on Sept 15 at 9 pm ($7, 21+).

Enjoy this bit, about the latest smug/abusive dining trend. (Which has an unexpected spiritual resonance with the S&M dining trends Bethany wrote about awhile ago, plus the street-food fetish that's making the rounds.)

And this, which I think has something to do with a fake band called Mop.

Anyway: Promising! And coming our way soon.
