On the weekend of November 13th, 14th and 15th, the Mateel Community Center presents the 25th Annual Humboldt Hempfest, a 3-day celebration and exploration of hemp and cannabis-related issues, products and culture.

Day 1 - Comedy Kick Off...

The Opening Night Event kicks off on Friday, the 13th evening with a Comedy Club featuring comedian, Ngaio (Oon-guy-yo)  Bealum who has appeared at just about every Hempfest and cannabis themed event on the West Coast and throughout the world for more than 20 years entertaining with his own brand of high-larious comedy. Bealum has opened for such luminaries as Weird Al, Dave Chappele, Outkast, Cee-lo Green, and The Black Eyed Peas, to name just a few and Mateel is thrilled to have this old friend back by popular demand.

Opening for Bealum will be comedian Ed Greer, a staple of the Los Angeles comedy scene. This sought-after comedian performs at Hollywood’s hottest venues including the Improv, The Comedy Store, and the Laugh Factory. He also headlines alt venues and comic book conventions as one of the most sought after ‘nerd’ comics in America. He has been described as fearlessly dynamic, highly original, thought-provoking and completely hilarious. CraveOnline describes his comedy as, “all at once intelligent and approachable, egalitarian and niche.”

Also opening for Bealum will be comedian Klee Wiggins, who defies expectations at every turn. She brings together a perfect confluence of smart-wit and raunch, proving that it is possible to be big-titted AND intelligent.

Day 2 - The Main Event...

The Main Event Day of Hemp Fest is Saturday, the 14th,, when the fun continues with your host for the day (and Friday's Comedy Kick-Off headliner), Ngaio Bealum.
