Event Type

Host Drew Wilson-McGrath would like to introduce you to your two new favorite comics: Bruce Gray and Kelly Ryan. 
Bruce Gray, a Comedian, Actor, and Podcaster is based out of Los Angeles, California.  He started comedy at the age of 18 in his hometown of Bakersfield, California, where most venues would make him wait outside until it was his turn to perform (sometimes in the rain).  In 2023 Bruce became a Paid Regular at The World
Famous Comedy Store and he has appeared in multiple TV shows and Music Videos including “I Think You Should Leave” on Netflix, Game Shakers on Nickelodeon, Kings Dead by Kendrick Lamar, and Earthquake by RiceGum and KSI.  Bruce is the co-host of the “BagFries” podcast and he can be seen performing stand-up nightly in Los Angeles at clubs such as The Comedy Store, Hollywood Improv, and The Ice House. He won Best Of Fest at the Golden Spike Comedy Festival in Salt Lake City and has performed with comedians as Joe Rogan, Bill Burr, Bobby Lee, Whitney Cummings, Anthony Jeselnik, Doug Stanhope, Theo Von, Andrew Santino, Kyle Kinane and many others.
Headlining: Kelly Ryan
Named the winner of the Portland’s Funniest Person competition at Helium Comedy Club in 2021, Kelly Ryan started stand-up at the age of 17 in NYC.  While getting her B.S. in Communication Studies from Texas Christian University, she performed improv for four years and taught the art form for three. At TCU, she got to open for SNL’s Vanessa Bayer and Aidy Bryant, as well as NBC’s Retta and BJ Novak.  Since moving to LA in 2016, Kelly can now be seen performing on any given night. Her “home club” is the
iconic Hollywood Improv and she is a Paid Regular at The Comedy Store.
During the pandemic, Kelly moved to Portland where she continued standup when possible.  In July of 2023, Kelly was also selected for Just For Laugh’s New Faces in Montreal.  This year, she can be seen headlining and featuring for acts like Anthony Jeselnik, Bert Kreischer, Whitney Cummings and more.
