Los Angeles comedian Betsy Sodaro is this month's guest for Governor Jack Watches You Sleep.
Denver's Governor Jack has been busy in 2014 -- the improv group has been performing across the U.S. this year, hitting the Detroit Improv Festival, the Omaha Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon in New York and, most recently, the Out of Bounds Comedy festival in Austin. The troupe of funny dudes is slated to perform at the SLC Comedy Carnivale in Salt Lake at the end of the month, but not before they throw down with their own signature monthly show, Governor Jack Watches You Sleep, at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse this Friday, September 5.

This weekend's edition of the part interview-part improv event promises to be a good one, with Los Angeles-based comedic genius Betsy Sodaro coming out to Denver just for the show. Governor Jack has seen some exciting changes in the last few months, too, revamping its While You Sleep show to create a whole new comedy experience.

As the year lumbers toward autumn and Denver shakes off its summer-festival hangovers, our city's bleary-eyed revelers have few better live entertainment options than comedy. From a nice roster of comedy-club headliners rolling through town to a banner month for some of Denver's most esteemed local showcases to a greedily stacked comedy festival, comedy fans have solid options nearly every week. Seriously, September is packed with so many great shows that we could easily double the list and glaring omissions would still abound. And the lineup gets off to a very strong start today.

Tree of Life
Denver Film Society programming manager Ernie Quiroz has been on the job for a year now. In that time, he's learned that Denver film audiences are nothing if not surprising. "There's some films that I did that I thought would go over great, and just utterly bombed," he says. "And then some that I thought, 'Okay, this might work,' that just ended up blowing away my expectations. You just never know what's going to hit and what's going to happen."

Five Tips for Coming Out Kinky

Categories: Events, Lists, Sex

Beyond the Bedroom will host Coming Out Kinky -- A Grown Up Comedy at Shine tomorrow night. Jean Franzblau's comedy is about a woman's path of sexual exploration; she plays twenty characters in the show. Beyond the Bedroom Executive Director Daka Dan describes the actress/playwright as "not a 'full-time' kinkster who has only relatively recently been on this path." As a result, "she has great insights for those on their initial steps into this truly wondrous world."

Kink can truly be another world for newbies -- a world full of new experiences, new challenges and, hopefully, new paddles, floggers and nipple clamps. In advance of the show, we're offering five tips for coming out kinky: Welcome to the jungle, and forget almost everything you learned in Fifty Shades of Grey.
