The Portland Clowns Without Borders Benefit Show is a true variety show: Clean comedy for adults and kids, and all kinds of circus and variety arts. Each year, top-notch performers volunteer their time and talent to wow Portland audiences for a great cause. Proceeds of the show support CWB – USA’s work of relieving suffering through laughter in areas of crisis all over the world. This show will support CWB’s 2018 projects in storm-affected Puerto Rico; areas of Mexico affected by last year’s earthquake; and the Balkans where hundreds of thousands of refugees are seeking asylum.

Meet our performers!
