Ian Durias is your friendly neighborhood stand-up comic. He’s also a two-time semi-finalist in Helium Comedy Club’s annual Portland’s Funniest Person contest. You may have seen him tell jokes at one of Portland’s many alternative comedy venues. You know, like, coffee shops, clown-themed theaters, and Chinese food restaurants named after cities in Ohio and Arizona, respectively. (Admittedly, that last one’s a deep cut). He’s also performed at Seattle’s Comedy Underground (RIP), San Francisco’s Cynic Cave (RIP), and Denver’s Voodoo Comedy Playhouse (RIP). Destruction doesn’t normally follow him around, though.
