Poppy's Queer Comedy in Portland

And Now - More Poppy!
And Now – More Poppy!

By Megan Candrian

Portland, OR (The Hollywood Times) 10/11/16 – Poppy Champlin performed on September 25, 2016 at Dante’s in Portland, OR on a balmy autumn Sunday afternoon. The crowd was modest but loyal. Poppy cut her teeth in comedy decades ago, and the audience seemed to know her history. While there were not a lot of young people in attendance, the group was diverse and supportive. 

Poppy is very skilled in doing impressions such as bird calls, and the audience really appreciated her talent and experience in this area.

Although Poppy seemed used to performing in front of a much more interactive group, she managed her time well, showed enthusiasm, and overall brought smiles to everyone’s faces. She remains a professional in her field, and shows no sign of slowing down.
