The idea loosely follows that of the popular Los Angeles comedy show Set List. "The main difference in our show is that there's more audience participation," Gray says. "They have big-name comics like Dana Gould, but there the comics come up with the topics, and it sometimes gets a little insider. We have a smaller community, and I don't want to burn them out too quickly." Only time will tell which improvisers best deliver the on-the-spot funny, he adds.
Tonight's debut features some of Denver's best -- Adam Cayton-Holland, Chuck Roy and Sam Tallent -- and future guests will include a mixture of local and touring names: Catch it all tonight (and continuing every last Saturday of the month) at 8:30 p.m. at the Bug, 3654 Navajo Street. Admission is $10 and, as Gray contends, the show will be "done in time to go out and do other things." Visit www.bugtheatre.org or call 303-477-9984.
