Since 1999, the Sheridan Opera House has been the home of the Telluride Comedy Festival. Each year over Presidents’ Day Weekend the Sheridan Arts Foundation and festival director Jeb Berrier bring in some of the countries best and funniest comedians for four nights of amazing comedy in a historic and intimate venue. Every night the show revolves around one comedic form; either stand-up, improv or sketch comedy, with an occasional world premiere such as the Human Giant Roadshow or Ed Helms’ ‘Whisky Sour Radio Hour’.
The Telluride Comedy Festival strives to be a world class event while keeping the grass roots feel and uniqueness of Telluride itself. Past performers include, Rob Riggle of the Daily Show, Jack MacBrayer from 30 Rock, Stephanie Weir of Mad TV, Arj Barker from Flight of the Choncordes, Tig Notaro from the Sarah Silverman Program, SNL’s Casey Wilson, Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, Brian Huskey, Seth Morris, Jamie Denbo, John Ross Bowie, Bob Dassi, Craig Cackowski, Rob Huebel, Aziz Ansari, June Raphael, Scott Armstrong, Jason Mantzoukas, Eric Appel, Brett Gelman, Eric Andre and Paul Scheer.
Please join us over President’s Day Weekend for four nights of comedy here in the mountains of Telluride. The 18th Annual Telluride Comedy Festival will take place Thursday – Sunday, Feb. 16 – 19, 2017. Please note that each night we will offer VIP cocktail tables up at the front of the theater. Use this as a unique opportunity to see your favorite comedians up close and personal and possibly even become the brunt of a joke or two! A new twist on the old Comedy Festival….we will no longer announce our performers in advance, you will just have to buy your tickets, cross your fingers and hope for the best! Performers will be announced about a month in advance of the event – with each night guaranteeing a strong laugh! Tickets will be on sale in October.
