“This is a way to bring people together,” says event organizer Terri Barton. “Marijuana is a commonality, and we wanted to have some fun with it. A lot of people drink at comedy shows, but many also indulge in marijuana -- or whatever else. But this show will appeal to different parts of the public, not just the smokers. There will be pot references, but these are very bright comics we’ve chosen; they’re not idiot stoner comics. I think this show will prove that laughter really is the best 'medicine.’”
Stoned Cold Comedy begins at 8 p.m. tonight at Jake's Food & Spirits, 3800 Walnut Street; tickets are $5. For more information, visit jakesdenver.com.
