Dear community members, art patrons and Oosik racers- Denali Arts Council has made the very difficult decision to cancel all events Saturday to help mitigate the spread of Covid -19. We will most certainly reschedule both these fabulous bands in the near future but the priority is to protect our communities well being. If already purchased a ticket we will be refunding accordingly. Thank you for understanding.
Attention ⚠️ Tonight’s film hosted by @denalinordicski is still scheduled as normal. 7:30 pm showtime.
9:00 – 5:30, with a 45 min lunch
The comedians chosen for this show are all very respectful and professional, that being said we would recommend television rules. So TV-MA is ages 14+. It can be an all ages show from our perspective but attending parents should be aware that some colorful language may occur.
What is Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest?
Alaska B4UDie Fest is a week long comedy arts festival with shows in Anchorage, Soldotna, Talkeetna, and Juneau, Alaska. We believe every performer should have the chance to step on stage in Alaska before they die. The Festival offers an opportunity for the best standup comedians in the nation to showcase their talents to Alaskan audiences, while also elevating and celebrating the work of Alaskan comedians.
Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest is committed to offering the best that Alaska has to offer to its performers, including sightseeing trips and opportunities to explore the wilderness of the Chugach National Forest. Experience some of the best comedians in the country, and create unforgettable memories in one of the last truly wild places on earth.
Alaska B4UDie Comedy Fest and The AKComics907 are committed to servicing the Anchorage Community and helping out to those in need. In 2017, The AKComics907 raised over $6,000 dollars for Planned Parenthood.
This story records the life of a young pilot flying in Alaska’s Frontier Arctic. You’ll experience the front seat thrills of bush planes operating in the most dangerous conditions on Earth. Flying in minus 60 temperatures and horrific storms, airborne among the magnificent mountains, glaciers and rivers that only Alaska has to offer. Once you’ve seen this adventure you’ll not be satisfied until you visit Alaska yourself! Includes true-life interviews and experiences of accidents, comradeship, humor, heartbreaks and life in Frontier Alaska, gone forever when dismantled in the 1980’s. Filmed 99% on location, Alaska Long Hunters opens with an interesting and well researched early history of the 49th State, leading to the eventual use and development of a new tool of transport – the single engine airplane, but not without extracting a terrible price. Experience what it was like to growing up among the dangerous game, hunting the massive caribou herds and absorbing the greatness of the county in the 60’s. Every boy, man and aviator will be compelled to grapple with its final truth, concluding with a crisis encounter that forever changed the pilot’s life. Coming out May 2020.
