Can you believe that despite a couple of brief flirtations with Seattle, Julie Goldman (HBO, Logo, Bravo) has never done a tour of the Pacific Northwest? It’s high time to change that. We’re driving her all up and down the I-5 corridor, taking her to the best Northwest clubs and showing her all the views. Sponsored by As You Like It- The Pleasure Shop, we’re going to be giving out toys, plus we have a couple of surprises in the works, it’s going to be a party!

Julie Goldman’s stand-up is delightfully in-your-face, honest and aggressively funny. Headlining throughout the US at clubs, colleges, festivals and events; she’s been described as “unapologetically un-PC ” by Go Magazine “a hilariously irreverent, butch lesbian” by Afterellen and Autostraddle writes, “watching someone be outraged has never been so fun.”

Julie has been seen on everything from “Bravo’s The People’s Couch”, co-hosting “Vanderpump Rules After Show”, and on LOGO’s “Big Gay Sketch Show and Skit Happens.”

You can enjoy a little Julie with your politics, on the hit podcast “Dumb Gay Politics with Julie & Brandy” and make sure to check out her guest-starring role on the season premiere of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm!

Spotlighting comedians who fall on the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) spectrum and their allies, the Portland Queer Comedy Festival’s vision is to not only highlight queer and allied talent from all over the world, but to give back to the Queer community through our community non-profit partner initiatives.
