From the mind of television comedy writer and executive producer of The Bob Newhart Show (and MASS MoCA Trustee) Jay Tarses comes the High Mud Comedy Festival, a two-day laugh-fest featuring a pile of performers thick with national comedic treasures and local stand-up heroes. Provocative deadpan comedian Tig Notaro headlines the inaugural festival, hosted by NPRâ€™s Ophira Eisenberg and featuring Brooklyn- and Hollywood-based live wire Sean Patton. More national and regional talent fills stages, including the MASS MoCA return of absurdist Dave Hill and a Berkshire-based comedy slate organized by and including the hilarious Thomas Attila Lewis, North Adams-based humorist Seth Brown, and Adams-based Mark Jagiello.
Tickets are still on sale and a festival pass starts at $32. Not a bad way to spend the weekend!
