Live Wire! is a weekly one-hour variety show with a modern twist. It blends music from up-and-coming artists, original sketch comedy, spoken word, and interviews with writers, filmmakers, comedians, and people who think cool thoughts. Taped in front of an enthusiastic live audience at the 400-seat Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland's historic Alberta Arts District, Live Wire! pairs the shared experience of theater with the intimacy of radio to connect communities.
