Of the many festivals Telluride offers, they all seem to have one thing in common; bringing world class entertainment within a small, mountain town feel. Telluride Comedy Fest encompasses this same mentality with big laughs on a small stage. Housed in the heart of town, in a building here since the mining days, this year’s Comedy Festival will leave you with sore cheeks and abs as you laugh the nights away.
What to Expect
The event takes place at The Sheridan Opera House February 13-15 with tickets on sale now at www.sheridanoperahouse.com/ This happens to be one of the Telluride Festivals that does not release their lineup until the show! With this year being the 21st annual, you know it will be good, but to give you insight into what it may entail, check out last year’s schedule listed below.
