The Hippieman returns to Eagle

EAGLE - When you're raised in '60s by hippie parents, your life may start out on a slightly different course from the other kids in class. In this case, it's a course that has taken John Novosad - a.k.a. Hippieman - from the neighborhoods of Boulder to the stage as a successful stand-up comic. That journey continues when Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to the Back Bowl in Eagle Saturday at 8 p.m.

As Hippieman likes to note, "it all started in the fourth grade when my mom would send me to school everyday with a Jimi Hendrix lunch box. All the kids made fun of me until they tried one of my brownies." And, as his bio reads ... "he's been slaying crowds with is extremely warped sense of humor ever since."

Comedy veteran Brian Hocker will start things off with his first appearance at the popular comedy series. Hocker has honed his craft at clubs and colleges across the country. He is also a regular at the Comedy Works and just returned from the Great American Comedy festival where he received great acclaim.

Tickets for Comedy Night at the Bowlmor are on sale now for $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased in person at The Back Bowl, or by phone with a credit card by calling 970-328-BOWL. For more information visit www.thebackbowl.com.
