The ten best comedy events in June
June is jam-packed with a lineup of comedy events so eclectic, you're sure to find something to tickle your funny bone. There are podcasters and Pride festers, twins and Too Much Fun, He-Man and transgenders...so many giggle-worthy performances that your calendar will be bursting with snickers. Keep reading for the ten best comedy nights in June.
The Sklar Brothers will appear at Comedy Works Downtown June 27-29.
- The Dairy Center developing a standup comedy scene in Boulder
- Ron White got personal in Denver about sex, pot and Osama Bin Laden on Friday
- Comedian Josh Blue on the pros and cons of being an "inspiration"
10. Drew Carey
After becoming the nationally recognized crew-cut and horn-rimmed chubster of The Drew Carey Show and Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Drew Carey went on to drop a Chevy's worth of weight and host The Price Is Right. Since he's still a strong draw as a standup comic, Carey's Comedy Works appearance should be a sentimental time-warp to a pre-alt comic world of fun-loving, wholesome wonder.
9. Masters of the Universe: Comedy Commentary at Comic Con
Get a double dose of ironic kitsch by sitting through a laughably bad Dolph Lundgren film about He-Man, while enjoying some comedic tribute/mockery from Fine Gentleman's Club's Sam Tallent, Nathan Lund and Chris Charpentier. This event is presented by Mile High Sci Fi, and while the film might not be suitable for any cultured human being, the comedy will be suited only for mature audiences.
8. Uhh, Yeah Dude
Often ranked in the top 100 of Podcast Alley's 50,000 surveyed podcasts, Uhh, Yeah Dude is a go-to resource for earbud hilarity and insightful commentary. And after Maria Bamford's sold-out performance last month and with a new Lucha Libre comedy and wrestling event on the roster, the Oriental Theater is quickly becoming Highland's best venues for comedy. On June 8, you can catch a live recording of the UYD podcast and get a headstart on the crew's worldliness long before their thousands of listeners get a chance.
