We're thrilled to announce that truTV has joined the High Plains family by coming on board as our Presenting Sponsor this year!

Joining title sponsor Illegal Pete's, truTV is the ideal partner for the Festival, as it's home to the scripted comedy Those Who Can’t—which returns for a second season of laughs later this year. The series is created by and stars The Grawlix (including Fest founder Adam Cayton-Holland)—former Denver darlings whose homecoming show promises to be a High Plains high point.

THE 2016 HIGH PLAINS COMEDY FESTIVAL VIP Passes on sale NOW! 

We couldn't be more excited to offer you a three-day festival full of Denver's and the world's best performers both in the historic South Broadway district and in the culminating show of the 2016 festival: Garfunkel & Oates at Paramount Theatre with special guests Kyle Kinane and Cameron Esposito. 

Thursday (August 25) and Friday (August 26) we'll have a variety of standup shows, podcasts and gameshows available in the South Broadway district at venues like Mutiny Information Café, The Hi-Dive, 3 Kings Tavern and more. Saturday (August 27) there will be shows during the day before the headlining show at the historic Paramount Theater on the 16th Street Mall in Denver, CO. Then we'll head back down to South Broadway late night for a final show and parties galore.

The full festival pass allows access to all shows of the fest—including mezzanine seating with cocktail service at the Paramount Theatre show. But it doesn't stop there! In addition to the shows, your VIP Pass gets you a high-end, collectible High Plains t-shirt, access to the pre-festival pass pickup party where you can mingle with performers, and a private VIP party at the Paramount Theatre before the headlining show. Plus, new this year, you can upgrade to the VIP+ Pass to get all of the standard pass benefits plus a limited edition High Plains hoodie!

Some things to note:

  • Your Paramount Theatre ticket instructions will come to you via email—you'll be able to sit next to your friends if they're also VIP Pass holders, but not if they have standard tickets to the headliner show.
  • Pass pickup instructions will come as well. There will be multiple opportunities to pick up passes prior to the festival.
  • Passes do not guarantee admission to any shows except the finale—all South Broadway shows are first-come, first-served, but if you get in line early enough, you'll get in.
  • Most of the South Broadway venues are 21+. You are welcome to purchase a pass if you're under 21, but you will not be able to attend shows at The Hi-Dive, 3 Kings Tavern or any other bar-based venue.
  • You also will receive a t-shirt (and hoodie with the VIP+ pass), so be sure to indicate your sizing at check out.
  • If you're traveling from out of town, we'll have hotel deals for your shortly so check back soon.
