Curt Fletcher (HBO, Showtime, The World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, The After After Party) headlines this show as part of Dry Heat Comedy Club’s opening weekend. This show will also feature shorter sets from several other hilarious local comedians.
Curt Fletcher knew he wanted to be a comedian in 1984. Comedy was everywhere, clubs were opening all over the country. The only problem, Curt was just four-years-old. He took the stage for the first time several years later in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at Laffs Comedy Club, where he quickly became a local favorite. Drawing comparisons to Steven Wright and the late Mitch Hedberg, crowds love his well-crafted one-liners.
Curt has appeared at some of the biggest clubs in the country with some of the biggest names of comedy including; Theo Von, Jim Norton, T.J. Miller, Godfrey, Brian Posehn, Kyle Kinane, Dan Soder, Jeff Dye, Anthony Rodia, Finesse Mitchell, Harland Williams, Just Nesh, April Macie, Ismo, Laurie Kilmartin, Dante, Alonzo Bodden, Chad Daniels, Josh Blue, Jackie Kashian, Jimmy Pardo, Carl LaBove, Troy Baxley and Tim Gaither. He has been selected for the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, the Blue Whale Comedy Festival in Tulsa, the Four Corners Comedy Festival in Durango, Colorado, and the Cloud Top Comedy Comedy Festival in Santa Fe.
He was a two time semifinalist in Denver’s New Faces Contest, a semifinalist in the Funniest Person in LA Contest, a semifinalist in the HBO Lucky 21 Competition, and he won the Great Southwest Laff Off.
Curt was a writer for the AVN Awards on Showtime, and his screenplay, co-written with Marc Shuter, The Consequences of a Feeble Mind, was a finalist in the Write Movies International Screenplay Contest and the StoryPros Screenplay Contest. He made his television debut in 2010 on the late night talk show, The After After Party, hosted by Steven Michael Quezada (Breaking Bad). He appeared on the show four times. His comedy album, Yukon Cornelius Sings the Blues, was released August 23, 2019, and it reached the top 30 on the iTunes Comedy Charts. In July 2020 he started In The Wry Podcast with Curt Fletcher.
