Each year we strive to give Denver and its comedy community the best possible festival with previous headliners including Reggie Watts, T.J. Miller, Kumail Nanjiani, Pete Holmes, Cameron Esposito and Kyle Kinane, paired with Denver's best current class.

This year, High Plains has grown again. There are more performers, more shows, venues with more seats and as eclectic a roster of comics as we've ever had. Your incredible support of this festival has demanded this growth!  

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 2015 festival: Anthony Jeselnik and Friends at the Paramount Theater. 

Thursday (August 20) and Friday (August 21) 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 22) there will be shows during the day and a big show with Anthony Jeselnik headlining the finale 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 the culminating Paramount Theater show with Anthony Jeselnik and friends.  Your Paramount Theater ticket instructions will come to you via email. Pass pickup instructions will come as well.  There will be multiple opportunities to pick up passes prior to the festival.

Some things to note:

  • 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 2015 High Plains Comedy Festival Limited Edition T-Shirt, so be sure to indicate your shirt size at check out.
  • If you're traveling from out of town we'll have hotel deals for your shortly so check back soon.

Thanks again and we'll see you in August!
