EAGLE — The Bowlmor Cafe & Lounge, located in The Back Bowl in Eagle, will host comedian John Novosad, better known throughout the comedy world as Hippieman, when Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns Saturday at 8 p.m.

Hippieman is a veteran of both stand-up and sketch comedy. He has achieved acclaim on some of the biggest stages throughout the country, including a career-changing appearance on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson” that so impressed the host that he was soon invited back for a reprise performance. In addition to that high-profile exposure, he has shared the stage with many of comedy’s first-tier stars, including Lewis Black, Jerry Seinfeld, Tommy Chong, Roseanne Barr and Kevin Nealon.

A Boulder resident, Hippieman is a featured performer at Denver’s Comedy Works and has both headlined and opened at many of the country’s finest comedy clubs, including Las Vegas’ iconic Catch a Rising Star. He has been a mainstay of Denver’s comedy scene for years, and he has had a hand in many of the charitable comedy showcases that take place there.

Novosad’s laid-back, self-effacing style is the perfect foil to his weird and twisted take on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in our world today. He has a unique, disarming presence and sharp wit that has a way of sneaking up from behind.

Opening Act

Vinnie Montez will start things off with his second appearance at the Bowlmor. Also a Boulder native, he brings his multicultural experiences to play in his energetic performances. Don’t let his size fool you; the man is nimble … at least in his delivery and style. He performs regularly at Comedy Works and top clubs across the country.

Tickets for Comedy Night at the Bowlmor are on sale for $15 in advance or $18 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.
