Cannon Beach Comedy Festival: March 8-9

Submitted By: tolovanaartscolony@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Comedians from across the country are coming to the coast for the fourth-annual Cannon Beach Comedy Festival, March 8th and 9th.

Headliners include: Atlanta’s Baron Vaughn, Denver’s Adam Cayton-Holland, Los Angeles’ Eddie Pepitone and New York City’s Cholë Radcliffe.

Indeed, it’s an incredible lineup that also includes numerous of the northwest’s best stand ups.

The two-day fest takes place at the Coaster Theatre in Cannon Beach. Tickets are available at cannonbeachcomedyfestival.com.

As a stand-up comedian, Baron Vaughn has been entertaining audiences for more than 20 years. He has two influential comedy recordings, Raised by Cable and Blaxistential Crisis, both available for streaming on all platforms. As an actor, Baron is best known as “Bud,” sharing the screen with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on the longest-running hit Netflix series, Grace & Frankie. Baron lends his voice as “Tom Servo” in the recent seasons of cult-hit, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Adam Cayton-Holland is a national touring comic who has appeared on CONAN, WTF with Marc Maron, Comedy Central Presents, The Late Late Show with James Corden, @midnight, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, and more. He has been named one of Esquire magazine’s “25 Comics to Watch” and one of “10 Comics to Watch” by Variety. Along with his cohorts in The Grawlix, Adam created, wrote, and starred in “Those Who Can’t,” which aired for three seasons on truTV.

Nicknamed “The Bitter Buddha,” Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Eddie is hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckart Tolle. On stage, Eddie is a force of nature, switching between social rage and tender self-doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue-collar angst and sardonic enlightenment. Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Eddie Pepitone.

Chloë Radcliffe is a NYC-based standup comic, actor, and writer. She starred in COMMAND Z from Steven Soderbergh. Her Comedy Central: Featuring set debuted in 2022. She staffed on the sketch writing team for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon from 2019-2020. She was named a TBS Comic To Watch at the New York Comedy Festival, has been seen on Epix, and was selected for NBC’s 2019 Late Night Writers Workshop. She produces Minneapolis’ 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival.

And if that isn’t enough talent, the Cannon Beach Comedy Festival boasts some of Portland’s best comedians, including “Portland’s Funniest Person” award winner Arlo Weierhauser, madcap multi-media maestro Phil Schallberger, Portland Mercury “Undisputable Genius of Comedy” Amanda Arnold and more.

The Cannon Beach Comedy Festival is produced by the nonprofit Tolovana Arts Colony and made possible by a grant from the City of Cannon Beach’s Tourism and Arts Fund (it’s what makes these tickets so affordable).

Summoned home, the eldest, Lenny, wrestles with small-town stagnation and dreams of escape.

Past resentments erupt, revealing the scars of their mother’s suicide and their father’s desertion.
Their eccentric cousin Chick stirs the pot, while their flamboyant lawyer Barnette offers shaky legal support and a dash of unexpected romance.

Have a question about Manzanita City issues? Ask a Councilor.

Submitted By: citycouncil@cityofmanzanita.com – Click to email about this post
We live in the age of social media, which clearly has its advantages and disadvantages. We can share information and opinions with people we might not be able to otherwise. Unfortunately, and not surprisingly, misinformation can start innocently enough but quickly develop into conspiracy theories, creating community divisions and discord.

To combat the rumors, it’s always good to go to the source and get the facts!

At February’s Manzanita City Council meeting, Linda Kozlowski, speaking for the Council encouraged anyone with questions to ask a Councilor. Councilors can be reached at their city email address and may be able to answer your question immediately or they may have to do some research and get back to you. If the information requested requires staff research and a public records request, Councilors will be able to let you know. But start first with a Councilor!

January’s Manzanita City Council Meeting was partially focused on gratitude to our first responders who were hard at work during the recent ice storm. We learned that TPUD was working to restore power at 2 in the morning, that Tillamook County Public Works was deicing the streets way before the storm, that Nehalem Bay Fire Rescue fire volunteers creatively accessed a patient in the icy hills of Wheeler! There were so many community volunteers and public servants trying their best to do a good job.

During emergencies we all seem to put aside our differences and come together for the greater good. We focus on solving the problem at hand. We recognize our shared humanity regardless of our politics and help each other out. Let’s do that without an ice storm.

One way we can all do this is to make sure we have the facts from a first-hand source before we share information.

Lucy Brook commented recently on BBQ:

What a great idea, instead of complaining vociferously and perhaps publicly with partial information, you contact a city councilor and have a conversation. After all, they’re steeped in the details of city government and can likely answer your questions and concerns better than anyone else. Especially if the “anyone else” is using partial or biased information. Which does happen from time to time, not?

And, as Jim Heffernan recently posted on the Tillamook County Pioneer, let’s use a Civility Pledge in talking to each other about issues where we have differences. Civility doesn’t mean we don’t disagree and discuss those disagreements but that we recognize each other as neighbors, not enemies.

If you have questions about Manzanita City issues, go directly to the source. Send your questions directly to a Councilor. We look forward to hearing from you!

We now have a group email address you can use to send a message to all 5 City Council members:

citycouncil@ci.manzanita.or.us

Individual City Council members email addresses:

Kathryn Stock (kstock@ci.manzanita.or.us)
Linda Kozlowski (lkozlowski@ci.manzanita.or.us)

ORCHESTRA PRESENTS FAMILY CONCERTS

Submitted By: sdawagner@icloud.com – Click to email about this post
The North Oregon Coast Symphony continues its 2023-2024 season with two concerts in March. Designed to please audience members of all ages, the performances will feature Greg Smith’s Zoo Song. This musical story of a young person’s first visit to the zoo is a wonderful form for introducing the various orchestral instruments, as each animal in the story is represented by a musical “voice.” The narrator will be Deac Guidi, a local professional opera singer who has performed throughout the northwest region. He also teaches Speech Communication at Clatsop Community College.
Continuing the animals theme, the program includes three short pieces from Saint Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. A solo cello, string bass, and clarinet portray an elegant swan, a lumbering elephant, and a cuckoo calling, all accompanied by pianist Diane Amos.
Other highlights of the concerts include the orchestral work Irlande by Augusta Holmès, the familiar Pomp and Circumstance by Edward Elgar, Julius Fucik’s Entry of the Gladiators, and Elmer Bernstein’s Great Escape March.
The first concert will take place on Saturday, March 16, at St. Catherine Episcopal Church (36335 N. Hwy 101, Nehalem, OR) beginning at 3:00 pm.
The second concert will be on Sunday, March 17, at the Bob Chisholm Community Center (1225 Avenue A, Seaside, OR) beginning at 3:00 pm.
Admission for both concerts will be: $10 Adults, ages 18 and under FREE (children 12 and under with adult supervision).
Tickets will be available at the door only for both concerts.
Cookies and refreshments will be available at intermission.
