Al Gore Memorial High School – The Street Video Collection

Aaron Ross comedian Portland PDX actor one-man show character comedy humor funny Michael Starfinder sketch improv Nick B hip-hop rap

“AL GORE MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL” – the one-man comedy show by Aaron Ross, presented a series of live characters, all inhabiting a very progressive faux-high school. Between characters, these five videos were shown to allow for costume changes, but also to keep the show briskly moving forward (and to knock the character total up to a dozen!).

Most of these segments were shot in public, mostly improvising off the unsuspecting, to hilarious results.

Now they are all yours…from a blind student who spots his most-beloved celebrities on the streets of Portland, to a blowhard EDucational speaker that wants into your home, a substitute that has a truly unique World Record, an old-school British dog trainer, and then finally a total (literal) dick!

Hope you enjoy them as much as audiences did during the four-week run of AGMHS!


WHO’S the ROSS? “700th Show Spectacular!” (FULL EPISODE)


"Who's the Ross?" Aaron Ross Portland PDX comedian comic humor funny stand-up late-night talk show Dante's live weekly host

WHO’S the ROSS? 700th Show perfectly reflected the kind of comedy program PDX’s weekly late-night talk show has evolved into over the past nine years…

Always focused on engaging our live audience, WTR’s humor has aged like a fine wine…meaning it’s more refined, but still guaranteed to get you drunk! The program increasingly spotlights the talent/personality of the Rose City’s music scene, the people/performers that keep Portland “weird,” all while maintaining its roots in the silly/stupid that makes us laugh!

Five of our favorite musical guests headlined the evening (Rasheed Jamal, And And And, Maze Koroma, Emma Browne, Tony Ozier), many a weirdo capped the night off with a Benny Hill bang, and fire dancer Ivizia stole the show (as always!). Classic segments were brought back to life, while epic new memories were made in bunches.

Below is the full episode, presented by Do503, cut into digestible segments. Live from Dante’s, it was one our most joyous shows ever, and we hope that joy is reflected in the clips you’re about to watch.

Cheers to Show 700…and 700 more!!!!!!!
