Mason Williams was a guest at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival held in Aspen, Colorado on February 9-13, 2000.

An all-star cast performed at the festival featuring AFI Award presentations to Robin Williams and Barry Levinson. There was a career tribute to Jerry Lewis hosted by Martin Short, another tribute to Nichols and May hosted by Steve Martin and a Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour Reunion hosted by Bill Maher.

Joined by original series writers Steve Martin, Mason Williams and Bob Einstein, the Smothers Brothers celebrated their 30th anniversary of being fired from CBS for the "politically incorrect" humor.

The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour Reunion Friday, was covered by HBO (did you see the clips?) and a good time was indeed, had by all.
