High Mud Comedy Festival 2017

comedian Phoebe Robinson

The High Mud Comedy Festival returns to MASS MoCA March 31-April 1. And tickets are on sale now -- they're $42 for a two-day pass ahead / $32 for students / $55 day of.

The headliner for the upcoming festival is comedian Phoebe Robinson, who's gotten a lot of attention this year for being the co-host of the popular 2 Dope Queens podcast with Jessica Williams. It's been near (and at) the top of the iTunes most popular podcast chart. Robinson has also appeared in a bunch of other media, and her book -- "You Can't Touch My Hair (And Other Things I Still Have to Explain)" -- was published this fall.

General festival blurbage:

High Mud laughs don't stop at stand-up: comedy films, funny museum tours with performers, a joke cam, workshops, and perhaps a comedian-led beer tasting and tour of Bright Ideas Brewery on the MASS MoCA campus will leave your sides aching. Post-mainstage, late-night gigs at local venues --including Desperados and the Freight Yard Pub -- will feature local talent.

The festival is hosted by "charmingly deadpan comic/writer/actor/guitar hero/man-about-town" Dave Hill.

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
