Ngaio Bealum

Ngaio Bealum is bringing his High-larious strain of comedy back to the Mateel Center.

Ngaio, sometimes known as the Chocolate Mountain of Joy, has appeared at just about every Hempfest and cannabis themed event on the West Coast.

Ngaio(Oon-guy-yo), the former Editor and Publisher of West Coast Cannabis Magazine, has entertained stoners and non stoners (but mostly stoners) all over the world for more than 20 years. The High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. the Seattle Hempfest, The Humboldt Harvest Fest, The Posrtland Hempstalk. The State of Jefferson Hemp Expo. These are but a handful of events where Ngaio's brand of fast paced yet laid back storytelling, combined with his unique 420 friendly style, never fails to delight the crowd.

He has opened for Weird Al, Dave Chappele, Outkast, Cee-lo Green, and The Black Eyed Peas, to name just a few.

This is his 5th time at the Mateel Center, and he is really, really looking forward to it, because he prefers outdoor over indoor.

The Bada Bling! Burlesque Troupe

From a small town nestled amongst the golden hills in the Southern part of Humboldt County, California, come an amazing group of highly talented and extremely excited women with an impressive vision! Combining bold entertainment with conscientious giving, they sing, dance, flirt, and fundraise. With your generosity, they can continue to bring laughter, joy, and inspiration to the many.

They are the Bada Bling! Burlesque. A troupe made up of fifteen unique and talented women who write, choreograph, dance and produce our own shows. Mixing the sultry and the sexy in with the comedy and the cabaret, they infuse their performances with variety. From hip-hop and jazz, to new world beats and burlesque classics, they perform in front of hundreds, bringing a professional show that has the crowd whooping and hollering, giggling and roused every time. Believing that all women deserve to shine, they offer an opportunity for ladies of many ages, shapes, styles and backgrounds to have their moment in the lime light.

They believe they can uplift women to be the beautiful sexy gals that they are. 



It’s all happening at the Mateel Community Center’s 22nd annual Hemp Fest Comedy Kick-Off Friday, November 9th, 2012. 
Doores open at 8pm and showtime is 8:30pm.  Don’t miss it. $15 at the door.
