2018 Stand-Up Comedy At The Festival

Comedy returns to Blues & Brews with stand-up shows featuring five comedians and a brand new "Back Porch Comedy Club" at the Elks Lodge (472 W Pacific Ave). With cozy couches and comfortable seating along with rustic decor and ambient lighting, Back Porch Comedy Club will be the ideal setting to catch some late night humor. This intimate venue will host the "Dirty Shows" on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 10:00 pm. For the young at heart, please note that some of the comedy will be adult in nature. Catch all five comedians again on the Blues Stage, Saturday, September 15 at 4:30 pm and Sunday, September 16 at 4:00 pm during the Festival.

Moses Storm

Moses is a multi-hyphenate who will next be seen in the upcoming season of "Arrested Development" for Netflix as well as Adam Sandlers’s upcoming Netflix feature "Who Do You Think Would Win". Previously, Moses starred in Timur Bekmambetov's horror feature "Unfriended" for Universal. Moses also just finished shooting the CBS pilot, "Arranged".

A 2015 "JFL New Face", Moses made his late night debut last year on Conan, where he received a standing ovation after his performance. CONAN was so taken with him that he will be starting a new monthly show sponsored by Team Coco at the hip new comedy venue Dynasty Typewriter that Moses will host. In television, Moses has multiple scripted and non-scripted ideas that we will be putting together. And for now, check out these links: Cheating a Marathon.

Moses gained a large social media following his viral video detailing how he tried to throw his own birthday party at the LAX airport Chilli's - the hilarious video “Terminally Chill Birthday."


Troy Walker

A regular at Comedy Works, Walker has won the Comedy Works "New Faces" contest twice. After making his network TV debut on The Late Late Show, Troy has steadily racked up credits including VICE’s Flophouse and playing the role of “Don Lemon” on Fusion TV’s Trump vs. Bernie. Troy was also featured in a PetSmart commercial directed by Christopher Guest and starring Jane Lynch, had his own Comedy Central digital series and can be seen later this year in "Corporate" on Comedy Central.

Walker has had the pleasure of opening for some of the most prominent comedians in the country. In addition to headlining clubs and colleges across the nation, Troy serves as a fine ambassador of Denver comedy at national and local comedy festivals including The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, The Great American Comedy Festival, and Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival. He was also selected as one the Just for Laughs Montreal’s prestigious “New Faces” and is currently clawing his way up the L.A. comedy scene.

After witnessing Troy’s storytelling abilities and commanding presence on-stage it should come as no surprise that he's also a licensed attorney who graduated from University of Denver's Sturm College of Law.


Megan Gailey

Megan Gailey has performed on The Conan O’Brien Show, @Midnight and has a Comedy Central Half Hour Special premiering in 2018. Megan was part of the 2015 New Faces show at the Just For Laughs Festival and was a featured performer at SXSW, Bridgetown Comedy Festival and a writer for the 2017 ESPYS. And she has finally performed alongside enough famous people that her older brothers no longer hate her.


Jordan Doll

Jordan Doll is a standup comedian, actor and writer from Denver, Colorado where he is a regular at the world famous venue, Comedy Works. If he looks familiar it might be because you saw him on Viceland's Flophouse, or the Comedy Central snapchat channel, or dressed up like a potato skin in that one TGIFriday’s commercial. Or maybe you caught him performing at Just for Laughs Montreal, or the High plains comedy festival, or San Francisco Sketch Fest; opening for the likes of Kumail Nanjiani, Bryan Posehn and Kyle Kinane. Or maybe it’s something else. He does just kind of have one of those faces.


David Stocker

Dave Stocker is originally from Ohio and attended Ohio University majoring in Adventure Recreation, which made Telluride the perfect place to one day call home. Dave moved to Telluride from Alaska for the library and stayed the next 9 years to ski. Since then he has picked up several other passions including comedy and playing music. He’s been writing for years and more recently performed at The Liberty Bar & Lounge opening up for local comedian Natalie Jones. Dave plans to continue his love for comedy and stand up, and is looking forward to being a part of the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
