Hes won accolades from the Comedy Works, which voted him the best new talent of 2006, and earned the respect of his funny-guy peers by getting invited to perform in New York on Eugene Mirman and Michael Showalters premier alt-comedy showcase, Tearing the Veil of Maya. Now its time for Denver audiences to find out exactly Whats So Funny when Westwords own Adam Cayton-Holland takes the stage in his first one-man performance, Dick Jokes for Artists. The one-hour show, which will be recorded for a DVD, is a chance for the comic to really flex his humor muscle. I think Im at the point where I should be doing this, he says. For one night and one night only, Im really going to try.
Catch Cayton-Hollands rare best effort tonight at 9 p.m. at Orange Cat Studios, 2625 Larimer Street. Tickets, $10, are available online at www.orangecatstudios.com.
