About

Once, Belin­da Car­roll did an open mic because she was mad about Sarah Palin. No one was pre­pared for what hap­pened next. Belin­da Car­roll went after com­e­dy with a vengeance. 

After her first open mic in Austin at Cap City Com­e­dy and train­ing in improv at Austin’s Insti­tu­tion The­ater; Car­roll along with her friends, found­ed the improv troupe 3$Bills,and began pro­duc­ing LGBTQ focused com­e­dy shows. (Kim Wil­son, a co-founder of the 3$Bills, is fea­tur­ing on tonight’s show!)

Lat­er, Car­roll moved to Port­land. The cool one, not the oth­er one. (Just kid­ding, Maine) 

She found­ed Port­land’s Queer Com­e­dy Fes­ti­val in 2017 to much acclaim and has per­formed in a mul­ti­tude of long-run­ning com­e­dy showcases. 

As, The New York Times wrote about Car­roll, While I had a lot of fun play­ing mar­i­jua­na tourist, [the show was] my most enjoy­able experience…the sets were punchy enough on their own. No con­trolled sub­stances necessary.”

In addi­tion to writ­ing for pub­li­ca­tions and antholo­gies such as the LAMB­DA Award Nom­i­nee Per­sis­tence of Desire, Cracked​.com, PQ MONTH­LY and Port­land Mer­cury, Car­roll has been run­ning an 8‑year long NYC/PDX pro­duced com­e­dy show­case SMUT and Kick­stand Com­e­dy’s Queer Late Night Talk Show Out­landish! while also head­lin­ing col­leges like, Port­land State Uni­ver­si­ty, Uni­ver­si­ty of Ore­gon, casi­nos Winn Riv­er and Chi­nook Winds and open­ing for Era­sure, Nico San­tos, Erin Foley, Dana Gold­berg, Jason Stu­art, San­dra Valls and Kids in the Hall s Scott Thompson. 

In March 2020, she was hon­ored with the Ore­gon State Woman of Achieve­ment award by Gov­er­nor Kate Brown. She’s pret­ty sure she was the last per­son legal­ly allowed to hug the Governor.
