My guide to the High Plains Comedy Festival: pt. 2 – Saturday

In the previous blog I told you what I would do Friday night at the High Plains Comedy Festival. So after a good six hours of sleep, wake up around 11 and have a hangover brunch at Sassafras or The Universal.


4pm, Hi-Dive: Adam Cayton-Holland has a special live recording of his great podcast ‘My Dining Room Table’, with guests Ben Roy and Kurt Braunohler. Maybe he’ll bring his table from home, just for authenticity?

6pm, Three Kings: I would get some crunchy spicy tuna rolls from Go Fish and then head down to Three Kings for another ridiculous lineup, top to bottom. Sam Tallent, perhaps second only to Chuck Roy in the hosting game, MCs a super show with Jake Weisman, Zach Peterson, Ian Douglas Terry, Matt Knudson, Bryan Cook, and the incredible Howard Kremer.

7pm, The Gothic: Saturday has two special shows at The Gothic theater a bit further down Broadway. The first is a special edition of The Grawlix, with the usual Grawlix gang, an appearance by Denver’s only a cappella dubstep group The Mouthstepperz, plus special guests including one super special guest who is only appearing at this show! (maybe)

10pm, The Gothic: Go to Moe’s BBQ next door and grab a sandwich to fuel up for the main event. It’s the headlining show with Reggie Watts! If you’ve never seen Reggie Watts, you won’t want to miss one of the most unique and talented performers I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t even call it comedy, it would seem insulting. I was actually surprised Juett and Cayton-Holland were even able to land him. Rounding out the bill are some of the very best: Kate Berlant, Sean Patton, and the rascally Brendon Walsh, plus more.

Afterparty: I believe everyone is going back over to Moe’s, for drinks, pinball and bowling.
