Live Wire presents a compelling night of comedy and insight from Conan sidekick Andy Richter, gonzo journalist Jon Ronson, Portland’s own Oscar-nominated animator Bill Plympton, and more to be announced soon.


Andy Richter has been a writer and sidekick for Conan O'Brien for 12 years, with a 9-year break in order to star in the hilarious Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Andy Barker, P.I. His other projects include Arrested Development, Talladega Nights, and Madagascar. He also zinged the hell out of Chelsea Handler once, which endeared him to us forever.

In The Psychopath Test, Jon Ronson helped us decipher whether we're at risk to commit murder. In The Men Who Stare at Goats, he let us in on secret and strange military practices in the war on terror. Now he's gone deep into the terrifying world of communal righteous anger and public humiliation with So You've Been Publicly Shamed.

Known as the king of indie animation, two-time Oscar nominee Bill Plympton has hand-drawn nine feature films. His latest feature, Cheatin' is about a woman who proves the depth of her love by enlisting the help of a disgraced magician to take the form of her husband's mistresses.


Just so you know, there is no one named Ivon or Alyosha in Seattle's Ivon and Alyosha. (There are a couple of Tims, however, but Tim and Tim sounds less interesting.) Formed in 2007, this indie folk-pop five-piece's 2015 release It's All Just Pretend has been called "captivating" by Paste Magazine.

DATE: Saturday, April 25, 2015
TIME: Doors at 6:30pm, Show at 7:30pm
COST: $20 Advance, $25 Day of Show, $35 VIP, $15 Students
PLACE: Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark Street, Portland, OR
