Since 1999, the Sheridan Opera House has been the home of the Telluride Comedy Festival. Each year over Presidents’ Day Weekend, the Sheridan Arts Foundation and festival co-director Jeb Berrier bring in some of the country’s funniest comedians for four nights of world-class comedy in a historic and intimate venue. The Telluride Comedy Festival strives to be a world class event while keeping the grass roots feel and uniqueness of Telluride itself.

Please join us over President’s Day Weekend for four nights of comedy here in the mountains of Telluride. Please note that each night we will offer VIP cocktail tables up at the front of the theater. Use this as a unique opportunity to see your favorite comedians up close and personal and possibly even become the brunt of a joke or two. Performers will be announced a few weeks in advance of the event – with each night guaranteeing a strong laugh!


Past performers include many familiar faces: Nick Kroll, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Natasha Leggero, Moshe Kasher, Jason Mantzoukas, Paul Scheer, Rob Riggle of the Daily Show, Jack MacBrayer from 30 Rock, Stephanie Weir of Mad TV, Arj Barker from Flight of the Conchords, Tig Notaro, SNL’s Casey Wilson, Rob Corddry, Brian Huskey, Seth Morris, Jamie Denbo, John Ross Bowie, Bob Dassie, Rob Huebel, Aziz Ansari, June Diane Raphael, Scott Armstrong, Eric Appel, Brett Gelman, Eric Andre, Paul Scheer and much more!

The Telluride Comedy Festival is a hidden gem. It attracts some of the biggest names in comedy and pulls them together for a weekend of the most unique and hysterical shows that you'll ever see. When you attend the Telluride Comedy Festival you are assured to see some of the biggest name stars of today and tomorrow!
