Lincoln City’s Eventuary will offer an evening of laughter, drinks and Italian food this Saturday, Feb. 18, with a visit from a trio of Portland comedians.

The 21-and-over evening will feature sets from Bri Pruett, Mohanad Elshieky and Jacob Christopher, hosted by Lincoln City’s very own Tory Ward.

Bri Pruett won the Willamette Week readers poll for Best Comedian in Portland in 2016 and has been named a “comic-to-watch” by Splitsider.com. She makes regular appearances at Portland’sHelium Comedy Club and Parlor Live.

Mohanad Elshieky is originally from Benghazi, Libya, and uses his personal life stories from home and daily encounters in the US to deliver a fresh perspective to the scene. Not afraid to say what is on his mind, he discusses world politics, Arab stereotypes and encourages people to learn how to correctly pronounce the word “hummus.”

Jacob Christopher has a charming demeanor and relatable storytelling style that yields results when talking about memories of old crushes, childhood or even the occasional sexual exploit gone wrong. He has appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and is a regular host at the Helium Comedy Club.

The comedy will begin at 7 pm, with doors opening at 6 pm, 560 SW Fleet Avenue. Tickets, $15, are available at eventuary.eventbrite.com or by calling 541-992-1255.
