Matt Monroe on the second anniversary of Propaganda!, Denver's Best Comedy Night

2 years ago by Byron Graham
Comedy shows come and go all the time, usually whimpering out of existence after a few ignominious months of effort. So when a show reaches its second anniversary, it's truly something to celebrate. Comedy fans can help ring in the anniversary this year on July 27th at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. Named 2014's Best Comedy Night by this very publication, Propaganda! has excelled thanks to host and producer Matt Monroe's savvy booking, mingling a roster of enviable headliners with Lannie's classy ambience month after month for free. July's lineup features out-of-towners Raj Silverman and Brandie Posey along with local favorites Chris Charpentier, Adrian Mesa, Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald and headliner Adam Cayton-Holland. Doors open at 7:00pm for the free showcase. In celebration of reaching this milestone, Westword caught up with Monroe to discuss the highlights of the past 2 years and how his commitment to Propaganda! would surprise his exes.
