"Let The Laughing Begin"

Dax Jordan is feeling a little fuzzy from the DayQuil he's taken to battle his cold. But the show must go on. So here he is, one of Portland's best-known stand-up comics, telling jokes with a stuffy nose at the Tonic Lounge on a very quiet Wednesday night.

The room at the rear of the Northeast Portland club is cozy, a good place for comedy. But it's pretty empty this particular night.

Which can throw off a comic's timing, since an act is paced to allow room for laughter. A handful of stalwarts in the audience are laughing, but there are so few of them that the resulting sound is more like the wee trickle of a mountain creek than a gushing tide of guffaws.

But Jordan's a pro, and he nails his punch lines through his congestion. - The Oregonian

Bio

Dax Jordan is a renowned stand-up comedian, writer and actor transplanted back to Los Angeles from Portland, Oregon after getting a rainy education. In addition to a handful of minor film and tv appearances, Dax has been a touring comic for over 13 years.

His comedy stems from his brilliant wit and impeccable timing, often called upon to write for others as well, most recently for the 2014 International Press Academy Awards show. His routine spans from hilarious life observations to the wacky and clever shenanigans he is known for.

Dax's good looks (or as he calls it, 'smart looking'), flawless delivery, and ability to think quick and funny on his feet have made him a fan favorite around the country. In 2010 he placed 3rd in the Seattle Comedy Competition, beating out winners of numerous other contests around the United States. In 2012 he was runner up in the Ventura Comedy Festival Competition, where he was awarded the first place prize of a recording contract anyway on the strength of his performance.

2014 will be a big year for Dax, with a new tour, television appearances, as well as writing for TV.
