Imagine, in a moment of suspended disbelief, that your job pays 174 grand a year. And comes with a $1.3 million expense account. And a staff of eighteen Ivy League yes-men whose sole duty is to bray loud and wide about the miracle that is you -- when they're not babysitting your kids or fetching you ... More >>

The appearance of sociopathic dreamboat Anthony Jeselnik at the University of Denver's Newman Center Saturday was filled with unthinkable rape jokes and reverse-pandering to the backward-hat bros and "Woo!" women who populate the college campus. Despite the fact that nearly half his set was recycled ... More >>
Today, the Supreme Court will consider arguments for and against the Defense of Marriage Act -- a hearing that recalls the court's part in tossing out 1992's Amendment 2, which prevented bodies in Colorado from recognizing gays and lesbians as a protected class. The passage of Amendment 2 led to Col ... More >>
Last Friday, the news broke that one-time tween-dream Fred Savage will direct Charlize Theron in the upcoming female buddy-pic Ladies Night. The film is being described as Bridesmaids-esque, which means it will most likely be another mildly funny, wholly predictable rom-com attempt at proving that w ... More >>
If it weren't for his recent, surprisingly tender performance in the Oscarific Silver Linings Playbook, Chris Tucker would be in danger of only being known for his massive IRS debt. But now he's back, not only in his first film in years but on the road performing standup, which was what first brough ... More >>
Stephen Colbert, as a real human being, is useless to us. Yes, that's a very selfish thing to say, but we all know it's true. When he's stepped out of character in the past for interviews on Fresh Air or Meet the Press, it's mildly interesting, but it's interesting in the same way that it was intere ... More >>
Comedian Mara Wiles hasn't had it easy the last few years. After establishing herself as an intelligently goofy performer on the local comedy scene, she was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening kidney disorder that, to say the least, interrupted her ascending career as a standup. And Denver ... More >>
Comedy Central's The Jeselnik Offensive ran its fourth episode Tuesday, characteristically taking on the politically sensitive news of the day with an irreverent send-up of Adam Strange, a recent victim of a shark attack in New Zealand. "Was he killed? You bet your sweet ass he was," Jeselnik laughe ... More >>
With the 85th Annual Academy Awards going down this Sunday, February 24, you can certainly stay home and catch the Hollywood action from your couch and wallow in Joan Rivers' bitter, pre-show fashion commentary. But while watching the Oscars with Joan and your cat may be fun, discussing the best and ... More >>
Campagna has closed for "remodeling," leaving a gap on an otherwise hot restaurant strip. But this spot at 1120 East Sixth Avenue has been dark before; it's been revamped more times than Joan Rivers. It was the home of the legendary Dudley's, then became Chives. But after Blair Taylor closed that to ... More >>
In celebration of this weekend's midnight screenings of The Muppets take Manhattan at the Esquire -- and the upcoming all-new The Muppet Movie, which will include a cameo appearance by Zach Galifianakis -- we decided to take a look at the best cameo appearances in the Muppet movies thus far. ...

It's a telling fact that, in a movie that features talking animals (including a monkey that sounds like Gilbert Gottfried doing a Joan Rivers impression), the least believable conceit is how Kevin James has a really good-looking girlfriend -- but that's just one of the many fatal flaws appare ...

Governor Bill Ritter will celebrate Colorado Tourism Day this afternoon at the State Capitol, and there's real reason to celebrate: The embarrassingly awful, Joan Rivers-ish "Let's Talk Colorado" campaign has disappeared almost entirely, with just a few "Let's Talk Colorado with the Locals Wh ...

Bad enough that Colorado actually paid money for an awful, out-of-date tourism campaign that sounds like an old Joan Rivers shtick: Let's Talk Colorado. But can we talk about what that campaign's sending out to would-be tourists? Today an e-mail newsletter arrived from the Colorado Tourism Office, ... More >>
Estrojam's fundraiser is smokin'.
During the run-up to the Grammy awards, local media types went on and on about various nominees with links to Colorado -- not just performers who still live in these parts, like members of the Fray, but also those reared here, such as India.Arie. But when it came to coverage of the Academy Awards, l ... More >>
