'The Ballad of the Malheur Patriots (Song of the Oregon Wildlife Refuge Standoff)' - Laura Sams and Garrett Palm

 Anthemic, ain't it?

Comedians Laura Sams and Garrett Palm perform improv comedy based on news stories at Curious Comedy Theater in Northeast Portland.

Joe Rose in the Oregonian said:

"We decided to write a song about the Oregon occupiers" for a Jan. 29 show, Sams said in an email. "In fact, Garrett texted to ask if I would help him write a song. Then I wrote the chorus and sent it to him, and then the song snowballed from there."

The song was such a hit at the performance that the duo decided to record it at Portland studio Audiowells and film a video.

Sams and Palm will be singing the song live Friday at a show called Sketch Party Bingo at Curious Comedy Theater at 9:30 p.m.
