High Mud Comedy Festival


High Mud, our annual 2-day yuk-fest, returns to North Adams featuring A-List talent on stage, in the galleries, and maybe even at the bar; and workshops to help you hone your best bits. Keep an eye here for additional lineup announcements.

John Early

Declared “comedy’s secret weapon” by Esquire in 2017, it looks like the secret is finally out on comedian and actor John Early. Since amassing head-turning roles on hit shows like 30 Rock, High Maintenance, Drunk History, and Broad City, Early quickly catapulted to become one of Hollywood’s most sought-out character actors (see The Characters on Netflix). He now stars in Search Party as Elliott Goss, a self-absorbed 20-something who is “a baby-boomer’s worst nightmare” (Vanity Fair), has been featured in all your favorite podcasts, and is selling out comedy clubs all around the world. Catch the exuberant jokester in prime-time on the High Mud stage.
