Thursday: Locals’ Night As always, Thursday is Locals' Night where the comedians get to pull out the stops for the local, sometimes rowdy, crowd. They are always sure to infuse the evening with plenty of inside humor and local references, and end the night with a set of world class improvisation.
Friday: Sketch Comedy and Improv Night Is 'Pass the Mic' where comedians literally pass the microphone from person to person telling stories, building on one another and creating stand-up comedy right there on the spot. The second half of the night, all performers will jump on stage for an exhilarating set of improv. These performers all got their starts as improvisers and Telluride is the place they come to re-unite and re-visit their comedy roots. It is truly amazing what they can create with one tiny suggestion and lots of imagination.
Saturday: Stand Up Comedy Stand-up comedy with Tig Notaro, Nick Kroll and host Seth Morris.
Sunday: Rona and Beverly Sketch Comedy
