Mike Birbiglia headlines MASS MoCA’s High Mud Comedy Festival, the museum’s annual mud season yuk-fest, which returns to North Adams stacked with comedy-club kings and queens, funny film, uncommon workshops, half-brewed beer tastings, mocking museum tours (and whatever else we can think to poke fun at). Storytelling funny man and This American Life regular Mike Birbiglia is joined by comedic songstress Nellie McKay and former Saturday Night Live castmember Sasheer Zamata’s Party Time!, with more comedic talent to be announced soon. High Mud will deliver a thousand laughs a minute during two nights of stand-up in MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center. Come early for an afternoon of comedy adventures. This is mud season in the Berkshires — we celebrate!
What to Expect
It’s a festival!
Take your time exploring North Adams and MASS MoCA; you never know where comedy might pop up throughout the weekend. Museum galleries open until 6pm on Friday and Saturday.
Food from our museum café is available throughout the day, and, as promised, we’ll have plenty of good beer on tap, and our full bar is always well-stocked.
The venue, MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center, is general admission. Preferred ticket seats are located in the first rows of the venue—first come, first serve in the preferred section.
All tickets are non-refundable. Word to the wise: High Mud might get dirty; this festival is best suited for audiences 16 and up.
