Thick Skin

Enjoy comedy the way it's intended. No holds barred, no punches pulled, and no f**ks given. Watch seasoned pros and future stars battle each other for supremacy. Good sets will be awarded, bad sets will be punished. Feelings will be hurt, fun will be had.

Comedy is at its best when it isn't scared to tell the truth. So let's stop pretending that the world is nice and fair, and help us celebrate each other by pointing out our differences and similarities that make us all amazing and utterly stupid.

Thick Skin may not be for everybody, but everyone should see it!

WHOSE ROUTINE REIGNS SUPREME?

Help us kick off High Plains in style with this hilarious game of on-the-fly standup. Iron Comic is a live gameshow with no stakes where 5 comedians rush to write a routine in 8 minutes from topics suggested by the audience. At the end of the night, an Iron Comic will be chosen. Inspired by Iron Chef, each comic is forced to craft jokes while the clock is ticking.

Iron Comic is hosted by Nato Green. Competitors include David Gborie, Shane Torres, Eliza Skinner, Adam Cayton-Holland, and Baron Vaughn, while straight-standup performers Johan Miranda, Vanessa Gonzalez, and Irene Tu will keep things moving while the competitors are writing away.
