Absolutely Fabulous

Jordan Wieleba is an old hand at creating captivating variety shows, and for her latest effort, Something Fabulous, she’s making the venue — Blush & Blu, Westword’s pick for Best Lesbian Bar in 2014 — one of the stars. “A big part of this show is the atmosphere,” Wieleba says. “Every event they have is just so much fun — you can’t go there and not have fun. I try to encompass the atmosphere of the venue into my shows, and it’s a small, intimate room, so you’ll get to see the performers up close.”

Those performers will engage in a plethora of on-stage antics. “It’s a comedy and variety show that features standup, burlesque, poetry, music and dancing,” says Wieleba. “Any kind of act that wants to perform in a unique room that’s fun, chill and relaxed — and they make the best drinks!” Every show includes standup comedy from popular Denver comics, but Wieleba also takes submissions for new acts at [email protected]

Something Fabulous runs at 8 p.m. on the last Saturday of every month at Blush & Blu, 1526 East Colfax Avenue; tickets are $5. Call 303-725-1020 for information.
