Gold will prove them wrong tonight when he presents his second Dairy Comedy Showcase, hosted by Sam Tallent and featuring Hippieman, Heather Snow and Steve Vanderploeg. And Gold is optimistic that the success of his showcases could create a breeding ground for a chuckling chain reaction, leading to more events and more local comedians. “I’m starting to get e-mails from people telling me they’re comics who are based in Boulder, or are moving to Boulder, and want to be a part of the comedy scene,” he says. “There are some newbies coming out to open mics and trying their hand at comedy. So something is happening here — or beginning to happen.”
The Dairy Comedy Showcase begins at 8 p.m. at the Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street in Boulder. The show is sixteen-plus, and tickets are $10 to $12. For more information, visit thedairy.org.
