Combining two of the greatest creations known to mankind (bicycles + comedy) The Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival is a one-of-a-kind festival experience halfway between Chicago and Los Angeles by train and Denver and Santa Fe by car. Trinidad, Colorado will be Comedy Town, USA for three days only Thursday April 29 – Saturday May 1, 2021. Come to town for a laugh and take in the scenic mountains, beautiful architecture, and rich history of the City where Colorado meets New Mexico.
This year’s festival will be outdoors and socially distanced in Downtown Trinidad and will feature performances by Ben Roy, and Beth Stelling along with festival hosts Nathan Lund and Sam Tallent of the Chubby Behemoth Podcast and a whole bunch of other hilarious comedians and podcasts!
Ben Roy created and starred in TruTv’s scripted comedy series THOSE WHO CAN’T along with fellow Grawlix comedy troupe members, Adam Cayton-Holland and Andrew Orvedahl.

In addition, Ben is also a prolific stand-up comedian and appeared on Ari Shaffir’s Comedy Central show, THIS IS NOT HAPPENING. He has also been on ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY and HBO’s FUNNY AS HELL. Ben has released 3 comedy albums including, I GOT DEMONS, which was featured in LAUGHSPIN as one of the Top Comedy Albums of the year.
