A Comedy Night presented by Mt. Shasta Brewing Company will feature Rio Hillman, a comedian/sketch writer who has been seen through the Midwest and West Coast.

Dustin Wood will open the show on Sunday, May 20 beginning at 7 p.m. at Mt. Shasta Brewing Company in Weed.

The show is for adults ages 21 and over. There is no cover charge.

Weed is one of the stops on Hillman’s No Name Comedy Tour through northern California, Oregon and Washington state.

According to his bio, Hillman arrived on the comedy scene more than a decade ago. With Midwestern charm and likeability, he brings the audience into his world punch line after punch line. He believes subtlety and timing are keys to building the crowd up to the punch line. To him it’s nothing new to find humor through the stress of everyday life.

Wood is a Weed resident who “has performed in some of the sketchiest places in California and Oregon,” according to information on a poster for the upcoming comedy show. You may know him, the poster declares, as “that fat guy from that thing.” He recently took part in a Netflix special taping that should be out this winter.
