Best Free Entertainment Denver 2014 - The Narrators
Readers' Choice: City Park Jazz
As Andrew Orvedahl and Robert Rutherford, hosts of the Narrators, will assure you, storytelling is an art -- not just an opportunity to spew random reminiscences. In front of an audience, the storyteller must impart drama, give a sense of time and place, and even hit the funnybone once in a while to achieve real success. Over the last few years, the duo's knack for curating stories has gotten better and better, and the monthly series is settling comfortably into new, beer-friendly digs at Deer Pile. At 8 p.m. every third Thursday of the month, Narrators regulars and newbies alike take the stage to riff on a changing theme; the result is magical, profound and believably unbelievable. It's also free -- and that's no fairy tale.
