Finding yourself in need of a good laugh? Get ready to bust a gut at the fifth annual High Plains Comedy Festival, Aug. 24-26, when more than 100 performers from across the country descend on Denver for four days of funny.
Founded by local comedian Adam Cayton-Holland in 2013, the festival (which mostly takes place around the historic Baker neighborhood near South Broadway) is set to feature 25 shows from local and national comedians. Denver native T.J. Miller (“Silicon Valley”) is headlining the fest at the Paramount Theatre on Aug. 26, with other highlights including shows by The Grawlix, comprised of Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy; The Nix Bros (filmmaker brothers who recently moved to Los Angeles from Denver); Denver’s Janae Burris; Todd Glass (“The Daily Show”); standup comic Rhea Butcher; and “the Bitter Buddha” Eddie Pepitone.
