"The He and She Show" is a stand up comedy show, which takes advantage of the funny, which exists in all relationships. The show is co-headlined by soon to be married couple: Teresa Sickels and Doug Wyckoff who are celebrating their engagement with a series of shows in the Northwest. The recently moved to the Oregon Coast from Hawaii.
They will also be releasing their newest CD at the event: Live In Portland. This CD was recorded 1 year ago at their sold out show also in Portland.
Funny moments exist in all relationships. Few relationships however are made up of two comedians, which share each of those funny, awkward and sometimes embarrassing moments with an audience. The struggles of co-existing are wrought in each hilarious detail on stage for all of us to share. Enjoy a PG-13 or "R" Rated live stand-up comedy date night experience with two of the funniest comedians dating today.
Doug Wyckoff is a seasoned and established comedian in his own right. He is also a founding member of the famed Hawaii comedy group and production company: Power Up Comedy. He can be seen on Grey's Anatomy, CSI New York and if you look closely you can see him in the box office hit Bridesmaids. Doug Wyckoff is an irreverent stand up comedian whose obstinate humor is universally offensive to all creeds, races, and cultures. He is non sequitur in his comedic performances, a lone wolf howling at the moon yet a leader of his pack. At least in age, and in his own mind. He brings laughter wherever he performs: from the world famous Comedy Store to the monthly shows on Maui and clubs and across the mainland. He has shared the stage with all star comedians such as Tom Arnold, Whitney Cummings, Chris D'elia, The Greg Wilson, Don Barnhart, Ron Morey, Curtis "Chino" La Forge, and Teresa Sickels.
Teresa Sickels, the aforementioned comedian fiance of Doug Wyckoff, is a sarcastic, dry and witty comedian with embarrassing and usually awkward moments that have become comedy jewels for all of us to share in. She resides in Oregon where she moved from Maui. In Maui she met Doug and became one of the founding members of Power Up Comedy (http://powerupcomedy.com); a comedy performance group and production company based on Maui and works with the rest of Power Up Comedy to produce, promote and perform in large monthly comedy shows as well as weekly open mic comedy nights. Her unique brand of comedy is subtly a bit naughty but wrapped in an innocent and sarcastic package. Teresa has headlined for the Female Comics of Hawaii show in Honolulu as well as co-headlined with the He &; She Show on the mainland. She has also opened for Curtis "Chino" La Forge, Don Barnhart, The Greg Wilson, Ron Morey and Doug Wyckoff.
Hosting the show is Portland's own Shawn McBride. Originally from Eastern Washington, Shawn has been bringing his insights to Portland bars and clubs with intimacy and warmth for the last 2 years. Constantly on the verge of apology, he questions himself and other things that trouble him. While a regular in Portland, he can be seen in Reno, San Diego, and Chicago when his employer unwittingly funds his "tours".
The show will also feature some fun crowd interaction with giveaways and door prizes!
This is an all ages' show, however those younger than their late teens, especially toddlers, may not get the jokes. The show, especially the later "naughty" show may include some adult themes by the comedians.
As a point of reference, the clean show has an approximate rating of PG-13 and the adult show with a more "R" rating.
