The Four Corners Comedy Festival Started in 2017 in Cortez, Colorado at the Historic Sunflower Theatre with 13 comics from Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico. In 2018, we did two different events- one at our original location in Cortez and a new one at the Historic Henry H. Strater Theatre in Durango, Colorado. We had 31 comics from all over that year. In 2019, we had our 3rd Annual Fest in Durango with 71 COMICS! Covid-19 threw our plans for 2020 into reverse but we came back for 2021 and had two venues. We are going big this year and doing things theater style, featuring co-headliners Adam Dominguez and Irma Ruiz!
