Underground Wrist Deep Productions has crawled out of its lair at the Squire Lounge to get high. The alt-comedy troupe (which includes Westwords own Adam Cayton-Holland) is leaving the Mile High City and heading for the Laughs and Lifts Festival in Breckenridge to help the next gen of funny guys and gals. Tonight, the final six contestants in the High Country Comedy invitational competition (hosted by Matt Vogl) will vie for the chance to appear at Wrist Deeps Friday-night show in Denver, where the established veterans of the citys indie comedy scene can give the newbies a leg up breaking into their subculture. Also on the Laugh and Lifts bill is a musical comedy show with Mac McDonald, a Mile High Sci-Fi screening of The Terminator, and a taping of the highly efficient Chuck Roys Renewable Energy Comedy Show. But the penthouse of the hilarity hierarchy has to belong to headliner Eddie Gosling, whos had a hugely successful Comedy Central special and just found out his comedy CD made the next round for a Grammy, whatever that means. The High Country finals take place tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Park Avenue Club in the Village at Breckenridge; admission is $10. The Breckenridge Comedy Festival continues through November 8. A ten-show headliner pass is $50, and VIP tickets are also available; visit www.laughsandlifts.com for more information.
Nov. 6-8, 7 & 9 p.m., 2008
