Once a standup comedian with jokes about a variety of topics, Zane Lamprey is now a comedian who jokes only about drinking. Which is okay with him. Give credit to Lampreys TV show, Three Sheets, in which he visits locations all over the world and, you know, drinks. Lamprey says he fell into that gig when he auditioned for a different show on the Food Network and the execs found his style too edgy. They did, however, like him for Three Sheets and the rest is history. I do investigative reporting about alcohol, he jokes. After a while, I just chose to say, This is it, Im the drinking guy.
Now taking a break from Three Sheets to work on a show called Drinking Made Easy with HDNet (its a similar show, except domestic instead of international, he says), Lamprey is coming to the Ogden Theater tonight on the Drinking Made Easy comedy tour, which HDNet is filming for an hour-long special -- and Lamprey invites you to participate. Well all be on our A-game, he promises.
Tickets are $26 in advance and doors at the Ogden, 935 East Colfax Avenue, open at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.ogdentheater.net or call 303-832-1874.
