High Plains Comedy Festival: THIS WEEKEND
MEA CULPA. I have been remiss in not mentioning this, mostly because I’m out of town until JUST after the festival and I am so, so sad about that.
SO: Are you in or around Colorado? Do you enjoy comedy? Well holy shit, reader, how do you not know about the High Plains Comedy Festival.
This two-day tantric comedy extravaganza is taking over Denver. Does the name Kyle Kinane mean anything to you? Kurt Braunohler? Reggie fucking Watts? Good god, guy, every single show in this fest is stacked. Denver’s finest comedians team up with the nation’s finest to create the finest fiesta of… fun, I guess.
Festival passes are available now. Single show passes are available now. And it’s not just comedy shows, oh no, reader. There will be live podcast tapings of These Things Matter and My Dining Room Table. There will be an ongoing open mic, and who knows who might show up there. And, yes, there will be talent-packed comedy show after talent-packed comedy show.
AND IT IS ALL THIS WEEKEND. Friday and Saturday. I am going to miss it and I am going to weep bitter tears for 48 hours. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO!
Go to highplainscomedyfestival.com now to check out the festival guide, the ridiculous comic lineup and to get your tickets.

Saturday Night Mic, Night Shotz, Loveland
Night Shotz; “Saturday Night Mic”.
The room is run by Kevin Bennett
Show is 8:30 till about 10:30 pm; it’s an open-mic with a headliner slot. The headliner slot only pays 20$; but it’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, right? Heh. Anywho, it’s every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. This month that puts it on Saturday the 13th and 27th. The address is: 3329 N Garfield Ave, Loveland, Colorado 80538.
Why… that’s tomorrow! Go check it out, Loveland and the rest of northern Colorado. And while you’re at it, keep submitting shows in your area; I love posting them!

New Open Mic at Mouth House
OK guys, we have a new mic in town… with a twist: the day of the week is NOT set in stone. Host Connor Marshall has the scoop:
I’m going to be hosting a mic and showcase at mouth house. The mic will be once a week, and a random day every week. The showcase is called “tongue stuff”. That’ll be once a month on a week where the house wouldn’t have a mic.
Got it? Kind of? OK! The next show will be at 8 p.m. on July 11, with a Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/147494615444264
To find out future dates, befriend Connor Marshall on Facebook or @connorcmarshall on Twitter.
Hot new marketing tool for an open mic? Bald-faced ploy for more friends and followers? Pain in my ass whilst updating the open mic list? You decide!
Mouth House is located at 2858 California Street, Denver, CO 80205
