Hosted and produced by Jason Lamb, Julia Ramos and Neeraj Srinivasan, the show’s goal is to provide comedians of color with a platform to speak their minds and share their unique perspectives, as well as reach the diverse comedy audience that exists within the so-called "whitest city in America".

National touring comedians Baron Vaughn (Netflix’s Grace & Frankie), Nico Santos (NBC’s Superstore/Crazy Rich Asians), Dulce Sloan (The Daily Show), Ahmed Bharoocha, Marcella Arguello (@midnight), David Gborie and Maggie Maye (Conan) have performed on the show, as well as many comics frequently featured in Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival: Curtis Cook, Bri Pruett, El Sanchez, Adam Pasi, David Mascorro, Katie Nguyen and Nathan Brannon.
