Through comedy, timing and unprecedented occurrences, without using the stand-up model of prefabricated verbal jokes, each month Oddville features a different line-up of performers, a wide range of artistic disciplines and polished short pieces from the thriving clown, circus, vaudevillian, and alternative performance communities here in this Rose City.

Producer, managing director and Oddville host Stefano Iaboni is an international actor/performer/director and teacher raised in Rome, Italy. He spent the past 10 years in Barcelona working for theatre companies, acting in movies and commercials, participating in street festivals around the world and starting his own sketch comedy cabaret.

The Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven is a private club: advance tickets or RSVP are recommended. RSVP via the event page at rsvpdx.com/oddville. The show is for adults 21+ over and is offered free with a suggested donation of $5.
