This is a wonderful opportunity to bring a talented pool of hilarious Front Range comics to the Western Slope. Well-established touring professional headliners that are regulars at Comedy Works in Denver will be booked for monthly showcases. The inaugural show will be with the hilarious John Novosad headlining and Mitch Jones featuring on June 9 at 8pm at The Art Center.
John Novosad, a.k.a “Hippieman” is a stand-up comedian based out of Comedy Works in Denver, Colorado. John has performed in clubs, theaters, and weird little coffee houses across the country for almost three decades. Yes, there were some day jobs along the way. John grew up in Boulder, Colorado – which is a damn good place to be from if you’re a Hippieman. He made his comedic debut sometime around 1980 at the Blue Note in Boulder. John has toured extensively over the years and continues to do so. He’s also a featured performer at The Comedy Works, sharing the stage with some of the biggest national acts working today. John made his network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, has written a screenplay – Hippieman: The Movie and is currently working on a comedy pilot. In the future John will continue to perform and develop Hippieman’s Plan for America – comedic solutions to our nation’s problems. And be happy.
