#YF & Live Green Group presents: HIGH! It’s 4/20!
With Colorado having legal MMJ, why not laugh in the midst of it. Locally owned and operated Bud Med has hand picked the most clever jokesters to battle joke for joke for an ounce of grand BUD.
Come laugh and enjoy the raffles and give aways. Green is the only way to go!
Celia has been described as “A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey.” She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.
Pandora Celtica is a band of dark fae bringing you haunting harmonies, tribal drumming, and songs of sorrow, loss and longing. We bring you magic straight out of the realms of Avalon to brighten the mundane world we’re all living in. And for some reason, people find us funny.
When we join forces, we will rule the galaxy as father and . . . ahem, well, at the very least, we’ll guarantee a night of magic, music, and mischief at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. Doff your mortal masks and come revel with us as you truly are! Visit us before or after the show at: www.Celiaonline.com and www.PandoraCeltica.com

Some people call it fate. Others call it chance. The truth is for every yin there is a yang, and for every Sith there is a Jedi. Matt Black (Reddit, The Chive, DrHeckle.com) and Ed Hill (XM Radio, Comedy Time TV, Tapei Times) join forces and bring you a supernatural phenomenon. From a man with sword like words, to a man-child with endless insecurities, this comedy tour is one that is unparalleled. They are one unusual duo. They are coming. They are Dr. Heckle and Mr. Ed. Featuring the hilarious and sassy Kristina McMillen!
Matt Black (aka Dr. Heckle) is a comedian, writer, and actor from Seattle, Washington.
He started comedy at 12 years old when he drew a comic strip for his school paper. After years of drawing and writing “funnies” for various newspapers and magazines, he started the critically acclaimed comedy website “Dr. Heckle” in 2005.
His unique, imaginative joke writing and intense passion for making people laugh sent him down the path of standup comedy. He recently won the Darrell’s Invitational Comedy Competition and was a finalist in the 2012 Joke Off Comedy Competition. He performs at comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters, bringing his unique brand of humor to cities across the country.
Most recently you may have seen him in a commercial for Conair razor’s “Get the Edge” ad campaign. Recognized as one of the hardest working comics on the scene, you won’t want to miss a performance from this up and coming bright star in the world of comedy.
When Ed Hill was 10, He flew from Taipei to Vancouver, under the impression that he was on vacation.
18 years later, he’s still on vacation.

So please, come and join him on his journey. Allow him to share with you the triumphs, the disappointments and the revelations behind those glasses.
From the mean streets of Oakland, CA Kristina McMillen brings a style of standup comedy that shows the cute, awkward, fuzzy side with a rough around the edges ghetto fabulous twist.
