Daylong Comedy Festival to be at Country Inn

Need a good laugh, or two?

Then you should make plans to attend the second Grand Junction Comedy Festival from 9 a.m. to midnight Saturday, April 16, at The Country Inns of America Hotel, 718 Horizon Drive.

The festival’s website likens the event to a “buffet of headliners — you can pick and choose which show you want to go see and pay for that show.”

Choose from comedy magic, ventriloquism, guitar/props, improv, stand-up comedy, The Funniest Person in the Valley Contest finals and a professional speaker on the topic “Sell It With Humor!”

Go to for comedian bios and video clips of what to expect.

General admission is $7 or $8 per show with each of the eight running about 60 minutes. The more family-friendly material — for ages 10 and older — will be on stage during the day, and the more adult content will come after 6 p.m. The website notes that the festival “gets a little spicier during the night shows (recommended ages 18 and older),” but adds, it’s still considered “clean” material.

Here is a schedule:

Burt Teplitzky — “Sell it with Humor!” 9–10 a.m., $7.

Monkey’s Uncle — comedy improv troupe, 11 a.m. to noon, $7.

Becky Blaney — comedy/magic, 1–2 p.m., $7.

Funniest Person in the Valley Contest finals — 3–4 p.m., $8.

Ian Varella — comedy ventriloquist, 5:15–6:15 p.m., $8.

Monkey’s Uncle — comedy improv troupe, 7:15–8:15 p.m., $8.

Becky Blaney — comedy/magic, 9:15–10:15 p.m., $8.

Kip Attaway — comedy guitar/props, 11 p.m. to midnight, $8.

Tickets can be purchased at the website or by calling 877-434-8497.

Cash-only tickets are available while supplies last at Albertsons locations at 12th Street and Orchard Avenue and off Broadway; at Country Inns Hotel, 718 Horizon Drive; and Aspen Street Computers in downtown Fruita.
