Bringing you the perfect après after a day on the slopes, the Cochon555 regional barkeep Punch King champions take the stage at 4 p.m. to prepare their winning bourbon punch for eight notable judges using two spotlight ingredients: bourbon from the renowned Breckenridge Distillery in Colorado and Angostura Bitters from Trinidad.
The Breckenridge Distillery greets guests with a welcome punch from Liquid Chef Billie Keithley while competitors are preparing their punches.

8:00pm – Comedy Night
Come laugh out loud with professional stand-up comedians, Phil Palisoul and Elliot Woolsey, at Ullr Fest’s Comedy Night.
Phil Palisoul has made his living as a comedian for 25 years. In that time, he’s been all over the world, performing in such far flung places as Hong Kong, China, and Juno, Alaska. He recently toured Afghanistan to perform for the troops with Comics on Duty. He’s worked with and won the respect of some of the biggest names in comedy, like Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey and George Lopez. His list of corporate clients is long and illustrious and includes GMC, Coca-Cola, and IBM.
Elliot Woolsey is a larger than life stand-up comedian from Denver, Colorado. Towering at an unnatural 6 5, and weighing in at barely-healthy 250 pounds, Elliot’s high-energy, commanding stage presence, and relatable material has made him a rising star in the Denver comedy scene. Elliot is the winner of the 2012 Comedy Works new faces contest, and has become a regular at the club, opening for amazing acts like T.J Miller, Todd Glass, and Josh Blue.
