Portland Laugh Line

Do Portlanders want locally-made laughs on the street?


What does it do?

The Portland Laugh Line is a rotary phone that delivers jokes from comedians who live in Portland, OR.

How does it work?

The phone has been gutted, outfitted with a microprocessor, and re-wired to make people laugh. When someone picks up the phone they'll hear a joke.



Where does it go?

It travels around the city to comedy venues, galleries, street corners, parks and wherever it looks like people could use a laugh.
