Hippieman a.k.a. John Novosad, is a seasoned veteran of both stand-up and sketch comedy. A favorite at Denver’s Comedy Works, Hippieman provides an alternative voice in Red State America. Audiences love his unique perspectives on topics ranging from corporate America to his original recipe baked goods. Hippieman’s disarming presence and sharp wit create a versatile and engaging performance every time!
His high-octane personality and keenly humorous observations and fast-paced, unconventional style and energetic delivery have led to him being described as a ‘runaway redneck freight train”. When not working clubs and TV, he has opened for many of the top comedy and musical acts of the day, working with entertainers as diverse as Billy Crystal, Sam Kinison, Jerry Seinfeld and Tommy Chong. He has also opened shows for iconic musical acts including the late B.B. King, Dolly Parton, The Doobie Brothers and many more.

His own show, Crush City, which he runs with fellow Denver comic Jordan Doll, features some of the best performers from Denver and beyond.
