Park House doubles down on comedy this week with standup comedy showcase
While Park House has been a well-regarded live music venue as well as go-to neighborhood bar since opening in 2012, its foray into hosting comedy performances is a much more recent development. But starting with Bobby Crane's whimsically named "Jolly Trolley" open mic, Denver's unwashed comics have been welcomed at Park House, where they utter deplorable things into the high-class sound-system week after week. As a result, Park House has quickly emerged as an essential part of a local comedian's Tuesday night itinerary; Bobby Crane of the Fine Gentleman's Club hosts up-and-coming comics at 9:30 p.m. every Tuesday. This week, however, Park House is doubling down on comedy by also mounting a Friday night showcase featuring some of the funniest comics in town.
And Park House will kick off this comedy showcase in style, recruiting a lineup of local crushers so stacked that future outings will be challenged to live up to the precedent. Spanning several generations of local comedy talent, the roster includes host Brent Gill, feature sets from Chuck Roy, Bobby Crane and Hippieman, and a headlining set by Adam Cayton-Holland.Host Brent Gill:Feature: Bobby CraneFeature: Chuck RoyFeature: John "Hippieman" Novosad:Headliner: Adam Cayton-Holland:
The showcase begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, January 24 at Park House. Tickets are $10 online and $12 at the door. Admission to tonight's open-mic night is free; the comedy starts at 9:30 p.m.
