Conceived by Portland comedian and Oregon native Craig May, The Spicy News was an idea that flourished from 2012-14 when a group of friends believed that it would be funny to watch comedians read celebrity gossip, but only after eating one of the hottest naturally occurring chilies on the planet.
Spicy has solicited help from some of the Portland’s top comedians, and some of LA and NYC’s finest as well, including Pete Holmes, Kyle Kinane, Mary Mack, Myq Kaplan, Andy Haynes, Nick Turner, Dave Hill, Brandon Vaughn, Nate Bargatze, and Ian Karmel. Spicy was recently featured at the 2013 Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival. It's also a thing that I edit. Enjoy it anyway!
