The Winter Comedy Show is an annual, one-night only event put on by the Nevada City Film Festival. The show features live performances from stand-up comedians and a collection of short comedy films curated by Doug Lussenhop, who works for Cartoon Network’s late-night comedy program Adult Swim. This year’s performers are Nick Thune, Sara Schaefer, and headliner Tig Notaro, who has been called one of the 50 funniest people alive by the Rolling Stone. Nevada City Film Festival director Jesse Locks says the comedy show helps to fill an entertainment void in Nevada County.
The show is Saturday, April 4, at the Miner’s Foundry. Doors for the short film show open at 6. The live performance is later that night– doors open at 8:30. You can buy tickets at the Miner’s Foundry or Briar Patch, or online at MinersFoundry.org. Call (530) 265-5040 for tickets or information.
