Laughter At 5,280 Feet: The High Plains Comedy Festival
By Perry Michael Simon on July 4, 2013
Are you going to be in Denver August 23rd and 24th? Here’s a good reason you’ll want to be there: an all-star lineup of comedians is descending on the Mile High City for The High Plains Comedy Festival, and it’s going to be close to heaven for comedy nerds, especially since, well, it’s high up, which is where we would assume heaven to be, so… wait, what were we talking about? Right, comedy. Anyway. this involves the same guys — The Grawlix, a/k/a Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy, and Andrew Orvedahl — who were behind the Amazon pilot Those Who Can’t which we featured right here on this website, and they’re on the schedule, but so are Reggie Watts, Rory Scovel, Ron Funches, Kyle Kinane, Sean Patton, Nikki Glaser, Howard Kremer, Cameron Esposito, our own The K Ohle host Kurt Braunohler, our own Ding Donger host Kurt Braunger, our own Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction with our own Bryan Cook, and a lot more.
See? You really want to be there. The event is being held at four venues, three in Denver– The Hornet, Hi-Dive, and 3 Kings Tavern — and at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood. And you can get full festival passes, one-day passes, and tickets for the individual Grawlix and Reggie Watts shows at the Gothic. How? Click here.
