You have been warned. Over the next few days there is ample chance that one of the normally respectable Humboldt establishments you’re fond of frequenting could be overrun by attention-seeking comedians hoping to extract laughter from your face. That’s because, once again, the Savage Henry Comedy Festival is set to takeover the county with over 100 comedians and a ludicrous 40-odd shows. Seriously, it can be hard to wrap your brain around the scope of this thing. Luckily, your LoCO Lowdown has cobbled together a day-by-day schedule that you can peruse at the following links — Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
If you’re unfamiliar with how this thing works, sure, you could buy tickets to the individual shows. But the folks at Savage Henry would really rather prefer you purchase an All-Fest Wristband for total access to the frivolity and what have you. Your call. Details in the event listing below or choose an event less hilarious from your Lowdown listings.
