Curious Comedy Theater is hiring for a Box Office/Operations Manager.

Are you someone who can hop behind a bar, handle a tech booth or run a box office as needed? Better yet, are you great at scheduling and managing other people to cover those positions? Can you be both warm and welcoming but also tough when needed? Do you have a laptop and a car? Then we need you!
Curious Comedy is looking for a “jack of all trades” with a great personality to manage the front of house in our rapidly growing comedy theater every Friday and Saturday night plus alternating Thursdays and Sundays. Our House Manager also manages theater rentals, special events, in addition to other operations and facility related duties.

Job will average 15 hours per week with potential for more hours as we expand our programming. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Deadline: 1/20/12

Thank you!!
Katie Michels
Programs Director

Do you love Portland? Can you command a crowd, make them laugh, and have everyone eating out the palm of your hand? If so, then this is the job for you!

Portland Walking Tours is looking for fun and dynamic personalities to lead tours and other events. We are hiring over a dozen positions that are part-time and on-call. You must have leadership abilities, charisma, a sense of humor, great communication skills, and an obvious love of Portland. Since we run morning, afternoon, and evening events, you may work irregular hours with the the bulk done from April through November. We're an established company that's been around over a decade and successful enough that during the regular tour season we run daily tours with over 40 events per week (not including dozens of private events). If you are interested in learning more about what we do, check out the Portland Walking Tours website ( or our sister companies Hometown Advantage ( and Run Brain Run (

Doing tours is a combination of thinking on your feet, telling engaging stories, and keeping everyone on a tour entertained. We do all the training and get you up to speed on your missing knowledge of the city. Like all of us, once you're leading tours, you'll be amazed that you're getting paid for doing something so ridiculously fun. So, if you think you have the improv and leadership skills needed, then read on and apply before the audition slots are filled...

POSITION: Resident Expert (aka Tour Guide).

AUDITIONS: January 21, 22, 28 and 29 (which are Saturdays and Sundays).

CALLBACKS: Immediately thereafter.

REHEARSALS: Multiple days on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in February and March.

PAY: Once hired, starts at $10/hour + tips/gratuities. Tips will often triple that amount so it's not uncommon that most of us make about $100/day.

B. Callbacks/interviews, if appropriate.

This position requires you to own a mobile phone and have desktop/laptop-based high-speed Internet access in your home and check your email at least once per day. If you do not have daily high-speed Internet access at home (and not your favorite coffee shop) and a cell phone, please do not apply.
