So Many Ladies brings funny dames to Bovine Metropolis
As a standup comedian for over a decade in New York and Los Angeles and a weekly performer with the Groundlings, Britt Swenson has met a lot of interesting characters over the years. Those characters will be on display in her comedy show So Many Ladies, which opens at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Bovine Metropolis Theater. "My characters come from observing life, people and imagining how fun it would be to be any one of these characters," says Swenson. "They act sometimes in ways we couldn't in ordinary life, which also makes them funny."
Throughout the night, Swenson will offer a variety of characters that range from a swarthy weatherman to a burned-out substitute teacher. "I love playing the burned-out substitute teacher because the audience becomes my classroom," she says. "The more serious I get with the audience, the harder they laugh."
Improv from all-female troupe Dishwater Blondes and a dance performance by the Solid Gould Dancers will round out the night -- but the main event is Swenson's show, a hilarious mix of live comedy and video performances that sold out on its first run.
Swenson promises that audiences will leave feeling lighter and with a lot of laughs. "This show is about pure entertainment," she assures us. "From Comedy Central to the Groundlings in L.A. and now here in Denver, I'm serving up a divine platter of funny characters with amazing special guests."
So Many Ladies plays at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21 at Bovine Metropolis Theater. Tickets -- are $12 in advance and $14 at the door -- are available by phone at 303-758-4722 or online at www.BovineMetropolis.com.
