About the organizer

This event is organized by the same team that has poured love into the Vail Comedy Show for going on 4 years. The Vail Comedy Show is well known for hilarious, sold-out shows in a destination resort town, for which it has received international press coverage. The 2022 Vail Comedy Festival was named a "Best Bet" by the Denver Post and sold-out. It was a big hit. See some pictures!
