Event Details


The High Mud Comedy Festival, a two-day laugh-fest featuring a pile of performers thick with national comedic treasures and local stand-up heroes, returns to North Adams this spring.

Unapologetically smart and goofy comedian Phoebe Robinson of cult-inspiring podcast 2 Dope Queens headlines the festival, hosted by the charmingly deadpan comic/writer/actor/guitar hero/man-about-town Dave Hill.

High Mud laughs don’t stop at stand-up: comedy films, funny museum tours with performers, a joke cam, a workshop on comedy in the time of Trump with Jordan Carlos, and a Dave Hill-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.

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 7pm on 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. Late-night revues with local talent take place throughout our home city of North Adams. Word to the wise: High Mud might get dirty; this festival is best suited for audiences 16 and up. Watch this space for festival updates.
