They say all good things must end. Well, so do the mediocre things. Pretty much everything ends, really. It’s kind of a dumb saying if you think about it.
The time has come for Cort Webber and Bobby Roberts to turn out the lights on the almost decade-long run of their comedy/pop-culture talk show. And so we begin the countdown to their final episode, cortandfatboy is dead, recorded live on-stage at the Bagdad Theater, home to seven years worth of Midnight Movie screenings, featuring titles such as The Empire Strikes Back, The Iron Giant, ALIENS, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fight Club, The Muppet Movie, Enter the Dragon, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the annual homegrown celebration of all things Dude, Cinco De Lebowski.
cortandfatboy is dead will feature regular guests Ryan Fleming of DigitalTrends.com; filmmaker/writer David Walker (who will be screening his latest short, The Day They Ran Out of Bullets); Live Wire Radio host Courtenay Hameister; gossip columnist Byron Beck; creator of The Legend of Bold Riley Leia Weathington; stand-up comedian Jim Willig, an original presentation from The Sabertooth Vampire creator and Oregonian film critic Mike Russell; as well as surprises and special guests from the show’s eight-year long existence.
Doors will open at 8pm, and at 9pm, the audience will witness the beginning of the end of Portland’s only pop-culture podcast hosted by a squinty, stabby madman, and an excitable, Kangol-capped Hobbit thing. Admission is $6, Only patrons 21 and over may attend. Tickets are available at this link.
