Ten best comedy events in Denver this November
With three female comedians, three Davids (Spade, Chappelle, Sedaris) and a whole lot of masked wrestlers on the schedule, November is shaping up to be a delightfully eclectic month for Denver comedy. We have secret shows from Comedy Works, a Scottish wunderkind and another performance on the budding Boulder standup scene. So grab a cup of tea or coffee, settle down with your planner and get ready to budget your laughs for the chilly weeks ahead.
10. Epilogue Comedy
Hosted by local mic-rat Timmi Lasley, the Epilogue Comedy night has been bringing Denver comedy out of its Capitol Hill/RiNo/Downtown trenches and into the comedically neglected Baker neighborhood for the last few months. Tucked into the cozy confines of the Mutiny Information Cafe, November's show features the seasoned chops of Mara Wiles and Jordan Doll.
10 p.m. Saturday, November 30, at Mutiny Information Cafe.
9. Delusions of Randeur
While most of the Denver DIY comedy shows take place in bars, theaters or public spaces, Delusions of Randeur stands apart in the Beauty Bar dance club. And fitting for this unorthodox setting, Kristin Rand's monthly variety show is a never-stale, up-tempo hodgepodge of live interviews, standup and a generous amount of crowd-work from the endlessly charming Rand.
8. Lisa Landry
It's nothing new to see a crude, cynical, female comedian gain a following with her don't-tell-me-what-a-lady-is persona. Chelsea Handler and Natasha Leggero have been playing up that angle (with brilliant results) for a few years now. But with her Southern-fried accent and Kentucky roots, Lisa Landry provides a disarming character that enchants you with her quaint accent (something most Americans associate with wholesome idiocy), and then takes a sharp turn with a razor sharp one-liner.
