Longmont Laugh Fest is in its third annual production! This year the event boasts 40 comics at five shows, at four venues over three days. This event culminates in a beer, cider, spirits, and comedy fest with nationally touring headliner John "Hippieman" Novosad. Bub Comedy works year-round creating shows that bring together Coloradan comedians with a favorite Colorado pastime – namely, drinking craft. This festival is a three day celebration of the collaborations that are putting Longmont on the map for comedy.
This is the first year the final day of the Laugh Fest will be combined with a Craft Beer, Cider and Spirits festival. "Every year Bub Comedy works to make this event bigger and better" says Jean Ditslear, co-owner of 300 Suns Brewing. "This year, we are expanding into 300 Suns parking lot, renting a tent and making a pop-up comedy club so we can accommodate a larger crowd," says JoAnn McIver of Bub Comedy.
The final craft beverage tasting and finale comedy showcase is a ticketed event while the events on Thursday and Friday are free for anyone to attend and packed with talented comics.
