They say laughter is the best medicine. Well, even if you’re not ailing from anything, you’ll want to check out the Denver Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. Regarded as the world’s biggest comedy tour, the 2014 version of this very entertaining event will be held at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday evening, September 7. The collection of comedians is quite notable. Some of the crack funny people you’ll be cracking up to include Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick, Demetri Martin, Sarah Silverman, DJ Trauma, Whitney Cummings, and Hannibal Buress. There’s also a second stage featuring host Brody Stevens and an equally strong laugh-inducing line-up. And if you were in attendance last year, you’ll be happy to know that the Cut Throat Freak Show, a wandering troupe of ragtag performers, will be back along with food and drink options galore.
The Denver Oddball & Curiosity Festival is produced by Funny Or Die, which got its start in 2007 online with humorous videos. The award-winning site was founded by comedy mavens Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy, and Judd Apatow. The tour kicked off on August 8 at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa and will conclude on September 21 in Texas at the Austin360 Amphitheatre. As for the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, it’s an incredible venue to see a show. Located nearly 6,500 feet above sea level, Red Rocks delivers stunning views and is home to a broad spectrum of plants and animals. Past performers include The Beatles, Sting, and a multitude of opera divas.
