Bend Comedy presents:
“The Local Showcase” w/ Karen Sipes, Katy Ipock, Dano Buendia, Dana Buckendahl and Dave Felton.
Just $5 to see these 5 comedians on the 5th day of the 5th month!!!!
– Karen Sipes –
Karen Sipes leapt head first back into doing standup three years ago after a long break, by competing in Bend’s last comic standing, and has performed locally since. While she loves the joke telling biz, she is more often engaged in theatrical projects, as an actor, singer, music and stage director, having been a performer since age 3. A member of Bend Improv Group, she is also an obnoxiously proud mum.
– Katy Ipock –
Katy Ipock has only been performing for a few months, but she is winning audiences over by being the raunchy aunt we all love. She opens up about her life as a mom and wife without sacrificing her love of Fireball and shenanigans. Katy is a pinch of nerdy, a touch of dirty, and a whole lot of fun to watch. You can see her in comedy shows through the Bend area.
– Dano Buendia –
Dano Buendia is a standup comedian born in the backwoods of Alaska that has been sneaking out of bed to watch his favorite comedians since the age of 8.
Dano’s day job has garnished him some pretty sweet credits in various films and video games, including King Kong, Transformers: Darkside of the Moon, Tomb Raider and Mortal Kombat.
But, it was Dano’s first comedic gig of a 10 minute set at an amature talent night in Nevada City in 2012, surprisingly booked by his wife, E’lan, that set him on the path to comedy. Since then, he has been sharing his irreverent comedy at various open mics, including Rooster T. Feathers, Curious Comedy and Bend Comedy.
– Dana Buckendahl –
While working at St Charles Medical Center the last couple decades, Dana found that laughter really is the best medicine. Over the last two years, Dana has been working closely with Bend Comedy and taking every chance she gets, to use her medicine like talents to heal audience’s hearts and minds with laughter. As a local phenomenon here in Bend, her take on family, friends, and work, will make you feel right at home.
– Dave Felton –
Dave Felton was raised in Utah, but escaped and moved to Bend about 10 years ago. He’s a voice actor, former radio guy, and a puppeteer. He doesn’t like pina coladas or getting caught in the rain.
