The Sheridan Arts Foundation in conjunction with Jeb Berrier present the 14th annual Telluride Comedy Festival. Each night has a special theme, featuring a different group of comedians.
Thursday night kicks off the festival with Variety Night, or better known as Local's Night. This evening, Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital, How I Met Your Mother), Paul Scheer (The League, 30 Rock), Jason Mantzoukas (The League, The Dictator), Seth Morris (Childrens Hospital, Step Brothers), Scot Armstrong (Starsky & Hutch, Old School), June Diane Raphael (New Girl, American Dad!), Danielle Schneider (The Back Room, Players) and Morgan Walsh (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Upright Citizen's Brigade) will pay tribute to the local flavor and quirks of Telluride. Many of tonight's comedians are part of the Upright Citizens' Brigade comedy theater based out of LA and NYC.
Friday night stars Michaela Watkins, June Diane Raphael, Morgan Walsh, Danielle Schneider and more in a hysterical skit: The Real Housewives of Telluride. The Upright Citizens' Brigade will finish up the evening with a long-form improv skit.
On Saturday, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer will host the evening of ski-themed comedy as the infamous "Telluride Ski Patrol," along with the rest of this year's comedians for the Dawn of Telluride. Stop by the Telluride Thrift Shop or Pip's Fine and Funky Consignment on Main Street to get ready for a 70's-skiing-themed dance party in the Gallery Room after the show as part of the Sheridan's Centennial Celebration.
Sunday night's festival finale features everyone's favorite: stand-up night. Rob Corddry hosts with Troy Walker and Nick Thune (Comedy Central, Laugh Factory, the Tonight Show).
