The Big Show is a night of entertainment like none other. As our motto says, "You can do what you think," and Big Show performers are ready to prove it.

We've seen it all: short films, dancing, bag pipes, juggling, unicorns, short stories, giant squid, singing bees, shadow puppets, charismatic preaching, musical acts, comedy, and stuff that doesn’t even have a name yet.

We don't care about where you're from or what you've done, whether you've trod the boards or chopped them for firewood, if you've played Carnegie Hall or just used its bathroom. If you're bold enough to release the artistic vision inside you and believe in what you're doing enough to get up on stage and go for it live, then you could be a Big Show performer.

If you want the thrill of a truly unique show crammed full of once-in-a-lifetime performances put on by some of the regular folks you see walking around Portland every day, then you belong in the Big Show audience.
