The bill includes Arlo Weierhauser and Shain Brenden, both of whom have been named “Portland’s Funniest Person.” More comics will be announced as the festival nears.

On Kyle Kinane (performing Saturday, March 18th):

“Gruff energy and laid-back demeanor mask Mr. Kinane’s skills as a storyteller and joke writer,” wrote The New York Times, “{Kinane} is at his finest when dissecting the worst experiences of his own life.” The Times continued that Kinane’s “bawdy vibe belies his undercover-sweetheart material,” adding: “Kinane’s a master of the pitter-patter refrain, which he deploys to develop a consistent rhythm throughout his act” equaling a “perfected illusion of casualness.”

Regularly touring the U.S. and beyond, Kinane has recorded comedy specials for Comedy Central, Netflix and more.

On Brent Weinbach (performing Friday, March 17th):

Weinbach is a recipient of the prestigious Andy Kaufman Award, recognizing innovative voices in comedy. He has appeared on “Conan,” Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, IFC, and more, as well as created viral internet sensations on his own YouTube channel.

L.A. Weekly called Weinbach “obscenely, disturbingly brilliant.” Time Out NY added that his work is “weird in the best way.”

The Cannon Beach Comedy Festival is produced by the Tolovana Arts Colony, a long-running coastal nonprofit. The event is made possible by a grant from the City of Cannon Beach’s Tourism and Arts Fund.

The Coaster Theatre is located at 108 N Hemlock St in Cannon Beach, OR.
