• Ben Roy’s ‘No Enlightenment in Sobriety’ is motivational misery, salve for misanthropic minds (Review)

    If you follow modern stand-up comedy even casually, youʼre probably aware that booze and drugs arenʼt celebrated today like they once were. Humor superstars like Chris Hardwick, Marc Maron and Russell Brand have all become disciples of sobriety, bemoaning their dark years wasted as cross-eyed drunks. And it would be easy to dismiss Denver comic Ben Roy as just another addition to the Live, From The Wagon! comedy generation, if

    Comedy scene in Denver surges, is teeming with talented comics

    While the Internet may have democratized comedy, it didn’t make everyone a genius. There may be videos and showcases being assembled all over the US, but only a few regional scenes (Portland, Austin) have risen above their less organized counterparts and created thriving communities of comedians that not only attract the big-wigs from New York and L.A., but in some cases are making their own industry – one that doesn’t

    Denver comedy collective The Grawlix thrives without fleeing to the coasts

    Whether it’s Austin, Seattle or Detroit, every non-coast comedy scene deals with the same conundrum: You build a community of talented standups, and just when things are looking good, the scene’s most prominent comics ditch their home-town for the sink-or-swim world of L.A. or New York. Though Denver’s comedy trio, The Grawlix, are seeking to break that tradition, and with a highly successful monthly stage show, a hilarious web series

    Last night wasn’t the first time comedian Katt Williams has melted down onstage and I’m positive it won’t be his last. The circumstances surrounding his latest outburst are all too familiar. Based on reports the show — part of his Ghetto National Convention tour — at the Wells Fargo Theatre in Denver started late, featured six — SIX! — opening comedians and when Williams took the stage he mumbled, took

    Comedian, and damn talented musical-type T.J. Miller went to great lengths to shoot his latest video– this one for his song “Denver,” which appears on last year’s album The Extended Play E.P. In an ode to his hometown, Miller seems to hit every corner of the city (and also bathes in syrup, which is simultaneously the grossest and most delightful thing I can think of) to bring us this slick-as-hell
