Minority Report: Nathan Brannon
January 29 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Minority Retort has become one of Portland’s most popular and critically acclaimed comedy shows. Hosted and produced by comedian Jason Lamb, Julia Ramos, and Neeraj Srinivasan, the 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 socalled “whitest city in America.” National touring comedians Baron Vaughn (Netflix’s “Grace & Frankie”), Nico Santos, Dulce Sloan, Ahmed Bharoocha, Marcella Arguello, David Gborie, and Maggie Maye 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, and David Mascorro. Minority Retort is also part of XRAYFM’s morning show, featuring interviews with creative people of color, hosted by Jason Lamb.

In 2016, Nathan recorded his second album, “Because,” with the distinguished record label Kill Rock Stars. Nathan was also the winner of the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 2014, voted into the Willamette Week’s “Portland’s Funniest 5” in 2013 while releasing his first comedy album “I Black Out” that same year, and was crowned “Portland’s Funniest Person” in 2012. He has been featured in publications and programs such as NPR’s “Weekend Edition,” Fox’s “Laughs,” NBC, The Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian. Nathan has also opened for national headliners such as Dave Chappelle, Damon Wayans, and Maria Bamford and is the creator and host of The Hamster Village, a podcast about interracial relationships.
