"Our Picks for 2020 NW Black Comedy Fest"

Tuskegee Jokemen Show
Papp Johnson, Yusuf Ali, and Mateen Stewart bring the podcast/Twitch/YouTube comedy show they famously host at LA’s Comedy Store to Portland. Generally they green screen themselves and their guests into an airplane cockpit where they dissect and laugh about current events—earning them the tag line “most uninformed informational news show ever.” The show recently passed its three year mark so you know they’re doing it right. (Sun Feb 23, 8 pm) - Portland Mecury

"208 Comedy Fest is a hit."

“One of my comedy brothers, Mateen Stewart, did the festival last year and there is no way Imma [sic] let him outdo me,” Los Angeles-based comedian Papp Johnson said via email. “Honestly I came for the fries.”

Johnson, who performed at Comedyfort earlier this year, said he’s “really hyped for the river rafting.” But if the water is at all choppy, he said, “I’m out.” - Idaho Statesman

Minority Retort
As long as Minority Retort continues to produce one of the best stand-up showcases in the city, you’re going to keep reading about it here. This time, Oakland's Papp Johnson hits the siren stage and he's bringing Wilfred Padua back to the Northwest with him. Support includes James Barela, Kae Aguilar, and Khadija Hassan. Hosted by Jason Lamb and Julia Ramos. (8 pm, Siren Theater, $12-15) - Portland Mercury


Still working on that hot first release.



Escaping deep east oakland many years ago, legendary comedian Papp Johnson built his name in the Los Angeles comedy scene one joke at a time. Known for being highly controversial, but wildly entertaining, Papp is a future must see.
